Scrimshaw is emerging as a formidable asset in the Hawks' defence, showing glimpses of his best throughout his third year in the brown and gold last season.
Scrimshaw has overcome cheekbone and concussion setbacks to conjure a strong return to football, having thrived under Alastair Clarkson in recent years.
Now set to play a critical part of Sam Mitchell's defence, the Hawks have been thrilled to re-sign Scrimshaw to a new deal.
“He earned our Most Improved Player award in 2020, before taking his progression to the next level in 2021," Hawks list manager Mark McKenzie said.
“Last year we saw Scrim take on greater responsibility, elevating himself as a key utility who is capable of being a damaging defender yet also having the ability to move up the ground and impact.
“He played every game except two, and not only did his performance improve throughout his 2021 campaign, but so did his leadership."
The announcement of Scrimshaw's new deal comes one day after fellow defender Denver Grainger-Barras signed an extension, also committing until 2024.
