The names of 18 candidates for the Marcel-Robert Trophy, which will be presented at the Golden Pucks Gala on April 3rd, 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.
“Each team submitted a lengthy file for their candidate and choosing three finalists will be very difficult,” said Natacha Llorens, Director, Players Support Program, Anti-doping and Education Services. “All candidates had excellent academic records. The efforts being made by our organizations to better the academic success of our student-athletes are growing every year and the results speak for themselves. I want to congratulate all the candidates who were selected.”
The finalist’s selection committee is composed of five members of the QMJHL administrative office: Denis Arsenault, Claude Benoist, Natacha Llorens, Valérie Monette and Marcel Patenaude along with the former recipient of the Marcel-Robert trophy (1995-96), Marc Denis.
