Owen Sound, ON - The Ontario Hockey League announced today that netminder Mack Guzda is the 2018-19 recipient of the Ivan Tennant Memorial Award as the Top Academic High School Player.
The award is the second in a row for the 18-year-old goaltender from Nashville, Tennessee. Guzda maintained a 99% average in his studies through online programs with the K12 International Academy.
"I am honoured to receive the Ivan Tennant Award from the OHL for the second year." said Guzda. "I am grateful to the Owen Sound Attack organization, ownership and coaching staff as well as educational advisor Sarah Rowe, and to my family and billets. I am particularly appreciative of the OHL for allowing me to pursue my academic goals along with my athletic goals."

Attack Educational Advisor Sarah Rowe says Mack is one of a kind: "It is a rare pleasure to work with someone as motivated, committed and personable as Mack. He is the epitome of the student athlete and by his achievements demonstrates how an individual can excel at both athletics and academics. He is a role model for our younger players both on and off the ice. As an organization we are incredibly proud of his success."
