Braves Coach Up For National Hockey Award

Brockville Braves Head Coach Jesse Winchester is up for a prestigious national hockey award.

He's been named a finalist in the Canadian Junior Hockey Leagues Coach of the Year.

The award, named the Darcy Haugan/Mark Cross Memorial Award, is in memory of Humboldt Broncos head coach Darcy Haugan and assistant Mark Cross, who were among those who tragically lost their lives following the bus crash last April.

Winchester is one of five nominees; the awards are being given out in Vancouver on June 20.
