The GTHL is proud to announce the inception of the Roy Pejcinovski Memorial Goaltending Character Award and the Rob Silc Memorial Coaching Award. Both awards will be presented annually starting at the GTHL Awards Ceremony in June 2019.
About the Roy Pejcinovski Memorial Goaltending Character Award The Roy Pejcinovski Memorial Goaltending Character Award was developed to recognize and honour a Goaltender who demonstrates extraordinary community service. The Award aims to highlight positive role models and examples of goaltenders who demonstrate positive character in sports. Each year, the GTHL honours one outstanding youth athlete who has demonstrated extraordinary service in the community while modeling the basic traits of good character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship to represent the GTHL.

The Greater Toronto Hockey League will present the Award annually to the Goaltender of any age and category. The Award is a $2000 bursary to any recognized Goaltending School or training program.
