Maillet Wins BLG Award

Former University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds forward Philippe Maillet added yet another accolade to collection this past week when he was named the recipient of the BLG Award as the U Sports male athlete of the year for the 2016-2017 season. He was presented with a trophy as well as a $10 000 scholarship to attend a Canadian University graduate school.

Maillet beat out Laval football player Mathieu Betts, York soccer player Jonathan Lao, and Trinity Western volleyball player Ryan Sclater to become only the second AUS male athlete to capture this prestigious award, joining former V-Reds forward, and current assistant coach, Rob Hennigar, who earned the honour in 2008.

At this point there is nothing left to say about Philippe Maillet's 2016-2017 season - it is simply the greatest individual season in UNB hockey history.
