Winkler Flyers G Dasan Sydora (94) was the winner of 2015 IBAM-MJHL Scholarship. The Insurance Brokers Association of Manitoba awarded Sydora with a cheque for $2,000 at the IBAM President’s Dinner last weekend in Winnipeg.
Winkler Flyers Goaltender Dasan Sydora was the back bone of the Orange and Black defense during the 2014-2015 Manitoba Junior Hockey League season. The Red Deer, Alberta native accounted for 84% of the Flyers’ wins, finishing the season with a record of (26-10-5).
Sydora, who was the runner up for the MJHL’s Top Goaltender Award, was one of the highest ranked goaltenders in every statistical category with more than 10 games played. His 26 wins ranks third among MJHL goalies. He finished tied for third with three shutouts, third in goals against average at 2.61 and second in save percentage at .921.
Not only was Sydora an asset on the ice, he was an outstanding citizen off the ice. When he wasn’t stopping pucks for the Flyers, Sydora was volunteering his time with minor hockey teams, reading to children in school and visiting local daycares.
His commitment and work ethic were unrivaled with countless hours spent in the gym and the video room trying to improve his craft. This was recognized by the Flyers when he won the Coaches Award this past season. He was also named the MJHL’s Goaltender of the Month or was a runner up for that award on several occasions. He plans to continue his hockey career and education at the collegiate level in the fall.
