North Bay’s Seguin named NOJHL scholastic player of the year

SUDBURY — The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced today that Tait Seguin of North Bay Trappers has been named its scholastic player of the year for the 2012-13 season.

With the honour comes a $1,000 scholarship on behalf of RBC to help defer costs of a post-secondary education.

Seguin also becomes the NOJHL’s nominee for the Hockey Canada/Canadian Jr. Hockey League RBC scholastic player of the year award, which will be announced during the upcoming Royal Bank Cup in Summerside, P.E.I.  That recipient will receive a $5,000 scholarship.

The 18-year-old Seguin is currently in his first-year at Nipissing University in North Bay where he is studying Biology.

Prior to that he was an honour student throughout high school seeing him earn a 90% average, or higher, in every course he studied.

The Trappers forward also earned league laurels for his efforts on the ice as well as he was earlier named to the NOJHL first all-star team at left wing.
