John Prince Memorial Award
Submitted By Tiffany Hart on Thursday, April 4, 2019
The award was created to honour the memory of John Prince. John was a pillar of spirit and volunteerism in the Essa hockey community. He filled the arena with his love of the game by sharing his personal hockey stories and his passion for skate sharpening to give our players the perfect cutting edge. Unbeknownst to many, John Prince donated hockey equipment and skate sharpening to those less fortunate kids that needed a little helping hand to remain playing hockey.  His pride in our Eagles was continuously demonstrated by the maintenance of the trophy case that stands to represent the achievements of the EMHA. Nominate HERE.

Our organization is where it is today because of dedicated people like John.

This annual award is set up to recognize an individual within the EMHA who has made an outstanding voluntary contribution that went above and beyond their regular duties during the hockey season.


To deserve consideration for the John Prince Memorial Award the candidate must be a member of the EMHA and in good standing. The candidate must have volunteered their time and/or held an active role, such as bench staff, executive member, manager, on-ice helper, etc. This award is intended to recognize an EMHA member who continuously demonstrated outstanding voluntary contribution and commitment throughout the 2018/2019 hockey season. ***This individual may not have touched the lives of all, but definitely the lives of a few!***


Any member of the EMHA can nominate a candidate along with a detailed explanation stating the reason for their nomination.
