Game 9 vs. Westfort Rangers

Posted November 22, 2011 - By | 1 Comment

First off, a big “Enjoy yourself in Jamaica… Jerk.” to Kevin Janik who’s vacationing in Jamaica with his family for a little over a week and I’m only getting more jealous as the temperature gets lower. Amazingly with the way the schedule worked out he’ll only miss one game. This will be our third meeting [...]

Game 8 vs. Fort William Canadiens

Posted November 15, 2011 - By | Leave a comment

Oh those Canadiens. Our familiar foes. Last year we played them 11 times, while we ended up playing some other teams in our league a mere 3 times. It’s just the way the season/tournaments/playoffs worked out. This year we’ve already played them 4 times while only having played some teams once. The Canadiens seem to [...]

Game 7 vs. South End Jr. Stars

Posted November 11, 2011 - By | Leave a comment

Even though South End has been struggling to get a regular season victory, they had ripped it up in the Westfort Tournament going 3-1 in the round robin and beating the Canadiens and the Maroons and on paper, they have a much better roster than their record would suggest. The also have a couple players [...]

Game 6 vs. Westfort Maroons

Posted November 10, 2011 - By | 2 Comments

While I don’t like losing, sometimes it’s a necessary evil. Most of the time you learn more from a loss than you do a win. You also have a tendency to dwell on a loss more than a win. That probably has something to do with why they’re so educational. We always tell our players [...]

Westfort Tournament

Posted November 06, 2011 - By | Leave a comment

It’s shaping up to be a busy couple of weeks. With us playing (hopefully) six games in the Westfort tournament and with regular season games and practices bookending it, we will have a possibility of 9 games and 2 practices in a 10 day stretch. Round Robin – Game 1 vs. Westfort Rangers We faced [...]

Game 5 vs. West End Bruins

Posted November 03, 2011 - By | Leave a comment

In our last season game before the Westfort Tournament, we took on the West End Bruins. The Bruins came out with a lot of hustle in a tight checking first period which nearly ended scoreless but Bruins forward William Cawley scored with 2 seconds remaining in the period. The score remained that way for nearly [...]

Game 4 vs. Nipigon

Posted October 27, 2011 - By | Leave a comment

With our undefeated start on the line, we faced Nipigon (also named the Elks) in our fourth game of the season. We had a couple opportunities to watch Nipigon in a couple games and found that they had a player or two who really knew how to snip. They’re an interesting opponent because going into [...]

Games 2 & 3: Back-to-Back

Posted October 19, 2011 - By | Leave a comment

Game 2 vs. Westfort Rangers: Wake-up Call  It was a battle of two former Hurricanes goaltenders as Michael Cookson (now playing for the Rangers) and Jared “Red” Foulds (better nickname pending) backstopped their respective teams. We called up an affiliate player, Matthew Ray of the Bantam AA Maroons in John Zurkan’s stead. Quick Start We got [...]

Game 1 vs. Canadiens

Posted October 15, 2011 - By | 1 Comment

Picking Up Where We Left Off Just like our last game of last season, we were facing the Fort William Canadiens. To repeat the experience even further we learned that John Zurkan would be travelling to Florida for a wedding and would miss our first few games. If you recall, John missed the series against the [...]

Exhibition Game vs. Beavers: So Far, So Good

Posted September 30, 2011 - By | 1 Comment

We try to keep in mind that this is only pre-season but we received a lot of positive signs from this early match. We ended up winning our game with the Beavers 7-1 but rather than go over the play-by-play as I usually would, I’ll highlight just a few players. I could probably talk at [...]
