The Bearcat-of-the-Week honours went to second year Bearcat forward, Gavin Hart. He opened the scoring and
added an insurance marker in last Thursday’s 5-1 road win over the Pictou County Weeks Crushers.
He got his hockey start in the Truro and Area Minor Program, playing at the “AAA” level from the get go. In his
second Bantam season with the Truro Bearcat Major Bantams, he impressed with a 32 goal, 19 assist season, giving him 50 goals and 32 assists over those two years. His single season with the Weeks Midgets saw him pick up 19 goals and 21 helpers. At both the Bantam and Midget seasons he was named to the Rookie-All Star Teams. The 2017 Bearcat Territorial pick cracked Truro’s lineup for the 2017-2018 season, finishing with 10 goals and 18 assists, with 7 of those coming on the Power play. The 2017 Halifax Moosehead pick suited up with the Mooseheads for the second round of their QMJHL playoffs last year. A skilled forward who plays with grit, he’s quickly become a go-to forward.

Saturday, the Pictou County Crushers are at the RECC for a 7:00 start against the Bearcats.
