Player of the Game Sticks Created by Indigenous Artist Natalie Sappier Presented at 2023 WJHC
I loved being able to present player of the game to USA player Jimmy Snuggerud and celebrating New Years Eve with family and friends at the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship in Moncton. This beautiful stick was created by indigenous artist Natalie Sappier. Her design features a turtle that honors the Earth, an eagle to symbolize our dreams, a salmon to symbolize reliance and a coyote to symbolize playfulness. With Hon. Gary Crossman, Bill Oliver, Daniel Allain - Moncton Est/East, Minister Kris Austin.
