Congratulations go out to Anders Lindgren of Moment High School, Trevor Scianna of St. Rita of Cascia High School and Nolan Sornson of Deerfield High School on being named the recipients of the 2017 Blackhawk Alumni Association Scholarship.
The Blackhawk Alumni Association (BHAA) distributes college scholarships annually to the three most deserving high school hockey players in Illinois. Awards are determined from a candidate's level of community service, volunteerism, good citizenship, academic performance as well as the hockey talent of the individual who receives an annual $7,500.00 scholarship over four years.
These players will be honored at the Blackhawk Alumni Scholarship Luncheon on Monday, March 6, 2017 at the McDonald’s Lodge in Oakbrook, Illinois. All of us here in Illinois are proud of their accomplishments in the classroom, in the community and on the ice.
AHAI is pleased to announce that The Cube will be live-streaming the Red Varsity and Combined Varsity High School Semi-Final games and the White Varsity Championship game thanks to our sponsor, Tier 1 Athletic Performance. Click here to catch all the excitement LIVE from The Edge!
The IHOA scholarships are awarded each spring to student officials who exhibit in school, on the ice and in their community the true spirit of USA Hockey, AHAI and IHOA. This scholarship, awarded to student officials annually, is applicable towards college tuition at an accredited college or university. Please note: applications are due by April 1, 2017.

(bottom left) Dave Loughnane, Linda Becker, Myles Gottainer, Megan Bozek and Dave Siatta.
Illinois hockey has a very long and rich hockey history, due in large part, to the foundation laid down by these inductees. Their tireless dedication in making sure every individual who had a desire to participate in this great sport has had the opportunity to do so.
The mission statement of the Illinois Hockey Hall of Fame is as follows: “To honor the excellence of those individuals who, through their exceptional endeavors both on and off the ice, have contributed in an extraordinary way to enhance the sport and image of hockey in Illinois.”
You can learn more about the long hockey history each of these individuals has contributed as each member of the Class of 2016 is being featured in the AHAI electronic newsletter Snapshot.
On behalf of everyone involved in the game of hockey, we admire and thank each of the inductees into the Illinois Hockey Hall of Fame class of 2016. They truly are in a class all their own!
