The Blaine Jarvis "Heart and Soul Award" is the Rush organization's highest individual honor for a player. It is named in memory of late Rush forward Blaine Jarvis, who spent two seasons in a Rush uniform as a member of both the inaugural Rush team in 2008-09 and the CHL championship Rush team in 2009-10. He passed away in an accident on January 31, 2016 at the age of 31.
The Rush organization created the “Blaine Jarvis Heart and Soul Award” following his death. It has been presented annually to a Rush player at the end of every season since its inception in 2016. The honor is awarded annually “to the Rush player that best exemplifies the qualities of Blaine Jarvis both on and off the ice: professionalism, perseverance, determination, commitment to the game, work ethic, and excellence in both the locker room and community.”
