Scott Oake is an award-winning sportscaster whose professional experience includes CBC Sports, Sportsnet and Hockey Night in Canada. Scott has also covered an impressive 12 Olympic games with the CBC. Originally from Nova Scotia, Scott has made Winnipeg his home.
Oake is joining us in support of the Bruce Oake Foundation. The Foundation is working toward building the Bruce Oake Recovery Centre, a long-term treatment facility for young men struggling with addiction. The project is near and dear to Oake’s heart after losing his son to addiction in 2011.
Hailing from Kitchener, ON, Mark Scheifele was the very first draft choice the Winnipeg Jets ever made after relocating to the city in 2011. He has since developed into one of the National Hockey League’s premier centres.
This season, he finds himself in among the top 20 scorers in the NHL and has been a-point-a-game player the last two seasons. In fact, not only was Scheifele been named to his first ever NHL All-Star Game, but he has already been named an NHL Star of the Week three separate times this year.
Last year, during the Jets run to the Stanley Cup Conference Finals, Scheifele set an NHL record for the most road goals in a Stanley Cup playoff series vs. Nashville in the Central Division Final.
Originally from Calgary, Josh Morrissey was the Winnipeg Jets’ first-round pick in the 2013 draft.
Before coming to the Jets, Josh had an impressive junior career. Josh earned a spot on the First All-Star Team of the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship and helped the Kelowna Rockets reach the Memorial Cup final in 2014.
Since debuting with the Jets in 2016, Morrissey has developed into one of the team’s most consistent rearguards, regularly matched up against the top players on a night-to-night basis. After setting a franchise record for the fewest goals allowed last season, Morrissey is once again a key reason the team is on track to break that record this year.
Both Scheifele and Morrissey are active members in the community supporting a variety of charities, including KidSport, the Dream Factory, and the True North Youth Foundation.
