“The fan’s were wonderful. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen that many people at the rink.
We had 5 midget-aged hockey players dressed for the game who did very well; logging some good playoff minutes. Thinking about recruiting for next year – the future looks bright!
We have 3 graduating players this year; including Captain Rylan Mauws, and Alternate Captains Jared Golinowski and Ian Gadsby. They were 3 of the hardest working players we had all season. Not one of them missed a game. They will be deeply missed by the team as leaders on and off the ice. ” said Coach Ryan Earl.
