Powless finalist for award as top Canadian athlete

Forward Johnny Powless, acquired by the Langley-based Vancouver Stealth, was one of the finalists for the 2014 Lou Marsh Award, recognizing Canada’s Top Athlete. Bobsled pilot Kaillie Humphries won the award.

In 2014, Powless won the NLL Champion’s Cup with the Rochester Knighthawks, the Mann Cup with the Six Nations Chiefs and the Minto Cup with the Six Nations Arrows, where he was Captain. The 21-year-old Powless’s resume includes three NLL Champion’s Cups, two Mann Cups, and a Minto Cup. He has won the NLL’s Most Sportsmanlike Player award.

“It is a huge honour for Johnny to be named amongst Canada’s best athletes and extremely well deserved,” Stealth president and general manager Doug Locker said.

“I’m humbled to be a finalist for the award,” Powless said. “I’d like to thank all my teammates, family and friends for their support.”

This year’s list of finalists also included Powless, Humphries, tennis player Eugenie Bouchard, tennis player Milos Raonic, and hockey defenceman Drew Doughty.
