For the second straight season Patrice Theriault, defenceman for the Concordia men’s hockey team, has received an award that signifies his reputation as being a great ambassador to the game.
This week Theriault was named as the recipient of the “Le Club Medaille D’Or” for which he will receive $500.
More important than any cash prize is what the award represents in recognizing the individual. “Pat transcends the type of athlete that deserves this award,” Stinger Coach Kevin Figsby said. “He’s a great hockey player, a top academic student, leader and a gentleman.”
The second-year defenceman was also honoured last year when he took home the Guy Lafleur award.
In two short years Theriault has gained a tremendous amount of respect and as a sophomore has become an assistant captain on the Stingers team.
“It’s great to do well at hockey and school but it feels good that people see what I’m doing,” Theriault says, “I really appreciate it.”
