During the 2012-2013 season he was the captain of the Steelers.”

The criteria for the IBAM-MJHL Scholarship award is the recipient must display outstanding hockey skills, good sportsmanship and commitment to the community. The MJHL salutes Brendan Mitchell for an exemplary Junior A hockey career and wishes him all the best in the CIS.
