Peart named Mr. Hockey Award recipient

Jack Peart, a defenseman eligible for the 2021 NHL Draft, has been named recipient of the 37th annual Mr. Hockey Award, given to the outstanding senior high school boys’ hockey player in the state of Minnesota.

Peart, 17, had 35 points (11 goals, 24 assists) in 18 games for Grand Rapids High.

“Peart’s ability to read plays before they unfold, allows him to minimize scoring chances against on the rush,” FCHockey scout James Henry said. “In addition to his skills while defending, his skating and passing allow him to consistently break the puck out with ease. With these skills improving over the year, Peart has shown he can turn into a great pro.”

Peart, No. 98 in FCHockey’s Winter ranking for the 2021 draft, also had 11 points, all assists, in 18 games with the Fargo Force in the United States Hockey League this season.

The Mr. Hockey Award is selected by a panel of NHL scouts, junior scouts and coaches, and select media members from the state.
