Aaron Armstrong Wins Prestigious Randy Gregg Award

Former Wingham Ironmen Captain Aaron Armstrong is the first player in the history of the Ryerson Rams to win the prestigious Randy Gregg award.

The Ontario University Athletics announced the West Division Men’s hockey major awards and all-stars yesterday.

In a release the OUA called Armstrong an ambassador for the Rams hockey program, athletics department and Ryerson University.

The release says Armstrong’s regular volunteer work at the Regent Park Arena teaching developmentally disabled class from Nelson Mandela Public School how to skate was a factor in awarding him the honour.

Armstrong is also an active mental health advocate and member of Ryerson’s SAMHI teams where the release says “he shares stories from his experience of coaching youth to help increase awareness.”

The Teeswater native will also be travelling to Cambodia in May with five other Ryerson student-athletes to volunteer at local schools, run sports programs and provide day care for mothers with young children so they are able to work.

The release says he is planning to run a hockey school for low income children who could not normally afford to attend.
