AJHL Announces 2019 Inter Pipeline All-Academic Team

Thunder would like to congratulate #1 Luke Lush for being chosen for the 2019 Inter Pipeline All-Academic Team.

The Alberta Junior Hockey League, in partnership with Inter Pipeline, is honoured to announce this year’s Inter Pipeline AJHL All-Academic Team.

Each AJHL team can recognize one player as part of this initiative. The players nominated are regarded as having commendable dedication to their studies at either the high school or post-secondary level, along with a grade score reflective of their academic success. These players demonstrate the qualities of a strong student-athlete working to further their athletic and academic pursuit.

“We are proud to support the dreams and goals of these young athletes,” says Chris Bayle, President & CEO of Inter Pipeline. “Being able to recognize their dedication to athletic excellence and academic achievement, both on and off the ice, is a privilege.”
