LETHBRIDGE - Lethbridge Hurricanes forward Jadon Joseph has been named the ATB Cane in the Community Award winner for September/October, after the 18-year-old volunteered his time for a number of community events in the first month-and-a-half of the season.

Joseph participated in a home visit along with three other teammates for a Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association fundraiser, participated in the CIBC Run for the Cure, and volunteered his time to attend Paterson School for a one-on-one Reading Program.

Joseph, a Sherwood Park native, also went above-and-beyond during the Hurricanes post-game 'Skate with the 'Canes' following their final game of October. He spent nearly an hour skating and playing games with kids on the ice and was one of the last Hurricanes to remain on the ice during the skate.

Hurricanes Broadcast & Communications Manager Dustin Forbes, the man in charge of player appearances, says Joseph is always excited to take part in community events.

"Joseph always shows up with a great attitude, and it never takes any convincing to have him included. It's great to see the initiative that he shows while attending community events," Forbes said.

In addition to his volunteering with community events, Joseph has had a strong start to the season posting two goals and five assists in 12 games this year all while attending high school.

The Hurricanes return to action on Friday night (Nov. 10) when they host the Spokane Chiefs on 'Hero's Night' at the Enmax Centre.
