Owen Sound Attack rookie defensemen Cal Uens has been named the Ontario Hockey League’s Ivan Tenant Memorial Award Winner as the top academic high-school student.
Uens achieved a 98.7% average in studies at Owen Sound District Secondary School, excelling in Business Leadership (100%), a pair of English courses (98%, 99%) and Challenge and Change in Society (98%). His impressive work ethic has resulted in him accumulating enough credits to graduate Grade 12 a year early, enabling him to begin taking University courses next season.
“The Attack organization would like to congratulate Cal Uens on being named the recipient of this year‘s Ivan Tennant Memorial Award,” said General Manager Dale DeGray. “Cal has been an incredibly dedicated individual both on and off the ice. Contributing in all 68 games this season and at the same time will finish with enough credits to graduate Grade 12 a year early. This in itself without the added commitment of playing in the OHL would be a tremendous feat. It is great to see that Cal’s drive in the classroom has been rewarded.”
Along with his tremendous work in the school room, Cal had a fantastic rookie season with the Attack, as the 17-year-old Napanee, ON native registered 4 goals, 14 assists for 18 points. His 4 goals tied the Attack team record for most goals by an underaged defensemen in a single season.
Uens (2022) now gives the Attack 4 of the past 5 Ivan Tenant Award winners, as he joins Logan LeSage (2020) and Mack Guzda (2018, 2019) on the list of winner out of Owen Sound. This also gives the Attack 2 league award winners this season, as captain Mark Woolley took home the Dan Snyder Memorial Trophy as the Humanitarian of the year last Thursday.
