Shatsky Named To All-Academic Team

Sherwood Park, AB: The Sherwood Park Crusaders are proud to announce that Mathew Shatsky (College of Holy Cross) has been named to the  Inter Pipeline AJHL All-Academic Team.

The 2021 Inter Pipeline AJHL All-Academic Team recognizes players regarded as having commendable dedication to their studies at either the high school or post-secondary level, along with a grade score reflective of their academic success.

As part of a long-standing partnership with the AJHL, Inter Pipeline also offers a scholarship program to provide one current or former AJHL Athlete with a $1,500 scholarship towards their post-secondary education. The scholarship is awarded to the player deemed most deserving among the applicants (one per AJHL team) based on their proven qualities in the areas of leadership, sportsmanship, dedication and citizenship.

Shatsky is a second year defenceman for the Crusaders who is committed to the College of Holy Cross for the 2021-22 season. In 58 games for Sherwood Park, the Winnipeg native scored two goals and 16 points and was an assistant captain for the 2020-21 season.  

The Crusaders organization would like to congratulate Mathew and the Shatsky family on this great accomplishment.
