Sgarbossa Named Sudbury’s Professional Athlete of the Year
The accolades continued for Sudbury Wolves forward MICHAEL SGARBOSSA Wednesday night in Sudbury when the KINSMEN CLUB SPORTS HALL OF FAME named the Campbellville native as SUDBURY’S PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE OF THE YEAR.
The Colorado Avalanche prospect won the OHL scoring race with 102 points and became the first Sudbury Wolves player to win the league scoring title since Mike Foligno turned-the-trick 33 years ago. SGARBOSSA was competing for the HALL OF FAME award with ‘Battle of the Blades’ winner TESSA BONHOMME and Ottawa Senators’ forward NICK FOLIGNO.
SGARBOSSA had an outstanding season with the Wolves and finished second in balloting for league MVP honours. SGARBOSSA was recognized at the Caruso Club in Sudbury with his parents Peter and Rose in attendance along with his Sudbury billet Cheryl Roque.
