Release | Hawks Dovar Tinling named 2019-20 Rookie of the Year


Ottawa, ON – The Central Canada Hockey League is pleased to announce that Hawkesbury Hawks forward Dovar Tinling has been named the 2019-20 Rookie of the Year.

The 2003 born Pointe-Claire, QC native finished tops among rookie skaters with 51 points (21G, 30A) in 50 games of action. He earned Rookie of the Month honours on two occasions while also being named High School Academic Player of the Month three times.

On top of helping the Hawks secure a top seed for the Bogart Cup playoffs, Tinling also represented Canada at the 2019 World U17 Hockey Challenge, as well as the World Junior A Challenge.

“When Dovar decided to come to Hawkesbury we knew we had a special talent on our hands but never did we expect that he was this good,” said Hawks Head Coach Rick Dorval. “He practices as hard as he plays and is always looking to get better.  The best part of this player is he is only scratching the surface of how good he can become.”
