This award will be presented annually to a graduating member of the Bantam ‘A’ Renegades Hockey Association.
The player is chosen for the desire, dedication, and love of the game that Jack exemplified in his playing days.
Jack (Jacki) Gustafson enjoyed hockey immensely. He started playing hockey in 1967 - 68 with the North Park Playgrounds Hockey League, winning the Area 3 Championship that season. Jack's talent earned him a spot on the Pee Wee North Stars "A" Division team managed by Murray McKee. Jack and the North Stars participated in the Murray McKee tournament in 1972 - 73 and won the "A" division consolation.
For Jack, winning wasn't everything, it was how you played the game that counted and always giving 100% was the philosophy instilled upon him as a young boy. Jack's team spirit earned him many friends in all the sports he participated in and will be sadly missed by all.
