Pistons’ Radomsky Named RBC Community Award Winner

In a year that has seen the 19-year-old from Winnipeg represent Team Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge in Alberta, lead the MJHL in shutouts with six, and recently commit to College of The Holy Cross (NCAA Div I) Crusaders in Worcester, Mass, Radomsky will have to make even more room in the trophy case as he has been named the recipient of the 2018-19 RBC Community award.

At the start of the season, each MJHL team selected one player who best exemplifies making a positive difference in their community – these 11 players were named as RBC Community Ambassadors for their outstanding citizenship and sportsmanship both on and off the ice and a commitment to volunteerism. Each Ambassador earned a donation to support their local community from RBC, with Radomsky selected as the MJHL’s top ambassador. 

Whether it was his work speaking in local schools, assisting minor hockey teams with goalie development, assembline Christmas hampers, or assisting local seniors with leaf raking and snow shoveling services, Radomsky was often out in the community giving his time to help others.  The city of Steinbach will receive an additional donation from RBC on behalf of Radomsky.

Radomsky and his Steinbach Pistons’ teammates begin defense of their MJHL title on Friday night when they welcome the Winnipeg Blues to the T.G Smith Centre for Game One of their best-of-7 first-round series.
