ABOUT ANDREW

Andrew Ryan was a young hockey player with SJMHA who lost his battle with cancer on August 27, 2003. In addition to being an all-star hockey player, Andrew was also a Wish Child and traveled to Australia in the months prior to his passing. In Andrew's memory SJMHA hosted an annual peewee tournament from 2004 to 2013. Over the 10 year history of the tournament, through the generous support of the hockey community, $160,000 was donated to the Children's Wish Foundation.

To continue to honor Andrew's memory, the scholarship was established by a generous donation from the St. John's Minor Hockey Association.
