The Art MacDonald Hockey Award

Apply or nominate a standout athlete to win our complete summer 2019 hockey off-season program.

If you have a teammate, know an athlete, or are an athlete that stands out amongst the team as a hardworking, gritty, team-first type player, then we want to hear from you.  ProEdge, in collaboration with the MacDonald family, is incredibly proud to launch our Art MacDonald Award. An award that is focused on finding an athlete that embodies the qualities of the late Art MacDonald. The motivation behind the award is to honour a great man that was taken from us too soon and to give an opportunity to an athlete that has earned notice.  

Art MacDonald

Art MacDonald was a man all about team and family. He played hockey with grit and determination that always made his teammates and those he competed against take notice. He did so because of a true passion for the game and desire to work hard and make a difference. This extended far beyond his athletic career as Art went on to become a well-regarded Coach that made an impact on many young athletes in our minor hockey community including his own three athletes Adam, Alexander, and Olivia. 



In December of 2018 Art passed away from a rare form of Cancer after a short but fierce battle. We want to honour the life he lived, the impact he had on our community, and celebrate those that have the great qualities Art possessed, with this award. Applicants will be reviewed by and picked by the MacDonald family, the ones that best knew the type of person Art was and the kind of persona that would best deserve this award.

Before last summer I joined ProEdge to train with Pat Busby. Pat has helped me get to peak condition which lead me to get drafted to the Ottawa Senators and win a gold medal with Team Canada. See you this summer ProEdge.
