Bearcat-of-the-Week honours went to sophomore forward, Gavin Hart. He picked up Truro’s first goal of the game in the 6 – 2 loss Saturday to the Amherst Ramblers. He finishes regular season play tied for second in team scoring with 16 goals and 15 assists. Obviously, he will play a big part in the Bearcats playoff run.
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. A skilled forward who plays with grit, he’s quickly become a go-to forward.
