The names of 18 candidates for the Marcel-Robert Trophy, which will be presented at the Golden Pucks Gala on April 6th, were released today.

Each player selected receives a $400 scholarship. The three finalists will receive an additional $600 scholarship and the winner will be awarded, in addition to the Marcel-Robert Trophy, a $1 000 bursary.
