The Northeast Generals are excited to continue a yearly tradition where we recognize players from both the NAHL and NA3HL teams with awards. Last year’s award winners (the first year of the Awards) were NA3HL: Tami Meriläinen & NAHL: Gerard Marretta.
The first award is named the Richard “Harvey” Jackson Man of the Year Award. This award is presented to the young man on each team that best personified the character of Harvey. Harvey was dedicated to all things Generals and always opened his heart up to everyone around him. He believed in always seeing the best in everyone and making sure he brought happiness to each person he came into contact with. This award is presented in that spirit.
The 2020-21 NA3HL “Harvey” Award goes to Carson Asper. In Carson’s 3 years with the Generals he endeared himself to his teammates, the rink staff, the fans and especially the referee’s. Carson had a tremendous 110gp Generals career which saw him tally 86 goals, 89 assists, 175 points and 454 PIM’s. Carson holds many records with the Generals including the following:
Career Points: 2nd All Time (175)
Career Goals: 2nd All Time (86)
Career Assists: 4th All Time (89)
Career PIM: 1st All Time (454)
Career PPG: 2nd All Time (1.77)
He also holds many single season records. And Carson did all of this with a smile. Bryan Erikson “Carson is a special kid. He is a kind kid that has a mean streak on the ice. But is one of the nicest kids off of it. A great teammate, a great friend and someone that will be missed tremendously within the Generals organization. He has helped set the standard for what we mean when we say #GensFamily. We are excited to watch Carson grow at Arcadia next year!
The NAHL Richard “Harvey Jackson” Man of The Year award goes to Alexander Tertyshny. Alex just completed his 2nd season as a General. In total Alex played in 67 games for the Generals where he accumulated 35 points on 8 goals and 27 assists. Alex was a favorite of everyone that knows him. Just a happy kid that had fun everyday while also working very hard.
On the ice Alex has etched his name among our record books:
Career Points by a D: 7th all time (35)
Career Goals by a D: 3rd all time (8)
Points by D in Season: 4th all time (31)
“I am going to miss Alex tremendously. He is an amazing young man that I feel fortunate to have Coached. I learned a lot from him about hockey and about life. Alex had an upbringing that could have made him sad or cynical but instead he used it as motivation to have fun every day. It was special to be a part of it and watch him with his teammates, his friends, the staff and even playing with my son on the ice. Harvey did love Carson and he sure would have loved Alex.”
