Prasanthan Aruchunan is the First in Ontario to Win a NHL scholarship


Toronto’s Prasanthan Aruchunan is making history.

The 17-year-old from Westview Centennial Secondary School is the first student in Ontario to receive the National Hockey League scholarship from the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

It’s an academic scholarship awarded to a student in the NHL’s official youth development program, Hockey is for Everyone (HIFE), who has achieved at least a 3.0 GPA.

A criterion easily met by Aruchunan, who maintains a 94 per cent average.

If that’s not impressive enough, he plans to use the scholarship to study mechanical engineering at the University of Waterloo.
