Miracle Maker Award

To honor Miracle on Ice, the Herb Brooks Holiday Classic is awarding a Miracle Maker Award in each division played in the tournament. We ask coaches, managers and players to nominate a recipient from their team who acts as a “Miracle Maker.” This may mean that this player encourages others, is a friend to all or inspires and motivates teammates, among other positive attributes. This player may be a talented member of the team but may also be someone whose character stands out more than their athletic ability.

To submit a nomination, take a short video, it can be on an IPhone, of yourself describing this person and explaining why they deserve the Miracle Maker Award. Once all nominations have been received, we will conduct public voting across social media platforms to determine the winner of each division. Winners will be recognized and will receive an award at the tournament.

The Miracle Maker Award is a tradition that the National Sports Center is excited to start at the Herb Brooks Holiday Classic. All nominations are due by Monday, December 23. Please email nomination videos to marketing@nscsports.org. Know that these videos may be published on social media to conduct the voting and elimination process.
