Lacrosse Legend John Grant Jr. Was Just Given A Key To The City

On Sunday (August 21st) in the Peterborough Sports Hall of Fame at the Memorial Centre, Mayor Daryl Bennett presented lacrosse legend John Grant Jr. with a key to the city.

It was a brief and private moment: Since Junior is a private and modest person, he thought a quiet ceremony would be fitting.

This is only the 13th time a key has been awarded by the city—a tremendous honour for Grant who has given so much to Peterborough sports.

This is Junior's last season with the Peterborough Lakers as he is retiring from his beloved team. Grant, 41, has been playing in the Lakers system since he was four years old.

Grant has won five Mann Cups while in Peterborough and MVP twice, and will retire as one of the biggest stars in Peterborough sports history.
