Ken 'Friar' Nicolson Award

The Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame is the sponsor of the Ken 'Friar' Nicolson Award. This award is named in honour of long-time CJOB radio Winnipeg Jets play-by-play broadcaster Ken Nicolson. Ken was a tremendous supporter of high school hockey and served on the organization committee for the first two Provincial High School Championships. The Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame presents a $1,000 scholarship to a high school hockey player who is recognized for a combination of excellence in athletics, academics, and community service.
