GTHL Awards season is here. To celebrate, we will be profiling each of the 12 award winners individually leading up to the ceremony on June 16.
Matthew Dalglish has spent over seventy-five percent of his life as a member of the Leaside Hockey Association. For the past 13 seasons, Dalglish has dedicated himself to the game, but not without a little help from those around him.
“My Dad was the one who would wake me up at 6:30 in the morning on Saturdays and take me to hockey,” explained Dalglish. “He is the reason why I have spent the last six years in Select level hockey, and I have loved every minute of it.”
Dalglish will be hanging up his skates – at least temporarily – to attend St. Francis Xavier University in the Fall to study History, with a goal of attending Law School. He will be awarded with the Len Barrett Midget House League Scholarship Award at the GTHL Awards Ceremony. The Award recognizes a Midget House League Player who achieves a high standard of excellence academically and in hockey.
Len Barrett was the GTHL Treasurer from 1975 to 1994 and was made an honorary Life Member of the GTHL in 1995. He was deemed the father the GTHL’s modern accounting system. Len’s leadership skills were acknowledged well beyond the GTHL, as he was also the first treasurer of the Ontario Hockey Federation.
