For the second month in a row, Emma Kreisz, Grade 12 from Hungary, is named the offensive player of the month for the varsity girls hockey team. At the beginning of December, the varsity girls competed in the CAN/USA Cup in Kitchener, Ont.

In a total of 5 games, she recorded 3 goals and 3 assists, contributing on 6 of the team’s 11 goals that weekend. With her hard shot and her play-making abilities, the opponents never knew if she was going to pass or shoot. She played an aggressive, confident and dominant weekend, making it extremely hard for the other teams to contain her. Ultimately, Emma found a way to contribute offensively and helped the team defeat some of the best teams in Canada.
Moritz Lackner, a Grade 12 from Austria, is the defensive player of the month for the varsity boys. An extremely aware forward who has been a top player in the +\- category all year, Moritz’s good habits on the ice always have him in defensively sound positioning. This creates situations where the team can easily rely on him against other teams’ tops players. At the Lawrenceville Tournament in New Jersey, Moritz also played some minutes on the defensive end 5 on 5, and he has become a very reliable point player on the power play, showing a great ability to hold the offensive blue line.
Jeremy Leroux, a Grade 10 from Mirabel, Qc, is the offensive player of the month for the varsity boys. With standout efforts against Cushing and Choate in particular, this young player was asked a lot with a depleted team. Jeremy’s ability to create scoring chances and shoot the puck made him a constant offensive threat. A selfless player, Jeremy has used the last month to really strive to be better at attacking a defender to get the puck where he wants it, which is on his stick, where the magic can happen.
