Team of the Month - September 2018

The Smith's Falls Atom A cubs have worked hard to get where they are today.

After a successful year last year playing B, they have moved to the A-level with their team of major players.

They have combined their team this year with new players from out of town. They are so proud of how quickly these young girls have come together to be quick friends and working well together on the ice. They would like to welcome back the best coach around and we wish these girls a successful year ahead and to remember to have fun!

This Cornwall Typhoons team has a feel-good story - this second-tier Atom team almost didn't exist. It was a last minute creation. The Cornwall Girls Hockey Association did not offer a second tier at this level, but there were so many passionate and skilled players trying out, they took a chance and formed a second competitive team. The goal was development and the success has been a by-product. This move turned out brilliant, as the tier two team brought home the following accolades:

Atom C Provincial Champions
ODWHA, Atom C Champions
GOLD, Oshawa Atom Tournament
GOLD, Nepean Tournament
SILVER, Cornwall Tournament
SILVER, Gloucester Tournament
BRONZE, Jay Peak Tournament

13 of the 17 players from last year will suit-up together again this season!

The Shelburne Wolves showed what the true spirit of a team is this past season. Even though they finished dead last in the standings with a 2-11-7 record, they battled hard right to the end of the game, and didn't end up with the record they deserved.

They went into the playoffs fast and hard and ended up finishing 4th, well above their regular season placement.

At home and facing elimination, the coaches and parents told them how proud they were of them no matter the outcome but it was their dedication and teamwork that got them there.

They won that game forcing game five back in Coldwater. It was a tight game until the home team went up 3-1. The Wolves roared back to go ahead 4-3 which they tied and forced overtime and were able to finish the game the way those kids were determined to and that was with a win.

Valley Elite's novice spring hockey team was absolutely DOMINANT this past season, playing to a 15-1-3 record and displaying incredible sportsmanship and respect for their opponents along the way.

Along with their fantastic record, they also managed to win two tournaments and finish as the runner-up in another!

The Saskatoon Junior Blues are a AAA team filled with hard-working and respectful young boys. It's their third season playing together and competing in the Gold Division. They recently battled hard and were able to WIN the Top Guns Tournament in Canmore, Alberta!

The Brockville Girls Hockey Association's Atom House Angels - with five girls brand new to hockey, every single girl reached new accomplishments every practice and every game. Giving their all, never giving up, not letting anything stand in their way, They encourage each other, they comfort each other. These girls are the true meaning of a team. They wear their hearts on their sleeve. They play for the name on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back. At such a young age, they all show an amazing level of maturity and their parents should be very proud.

As of now, the North Halton Twisters Novice A are 55-0-1. They have won all five tournaments they have entered and are league champions. They have scored 411 goals and given up 45 this year. 

Pretty incredible. Well done, girls!

This awesome team are good friends, on and off the ice. Whether they are playing in a game, a tournament or involved in a bottle drive team fundraiser, these girls are always working hard, demonstrating their love for the game while respecting each other and their opponents. Their perseverance and dedication earned them finalists’ medals at the 2017 Kingston Girls Hockey Association (KGHA) Tournament, as well as finishing first overall in their division as 2017-18 Regular Season Champions (ODWHA “West Piper” Bantam House League Division). A successful season indeed! Go Rockets!

Determination and fun - the Spitfire way. Their goal is to improve each and every game, while remembering this is a game about fun and lifelong friendships. Coach Scott, in his first year of coaching, has enhanced skills through development, hard work, and fair play. It's been a successful season with an amazing group of kids, parents, and coaches! Go Spits

The West Lorne Comets Bantam Rep team is a great example of what small town hockey is all about.  Comprised of ten skaters plus two call-ups from the local peewee team, this team is very competitive against much larger centers they face game in and game out in league play. The team works hard every game and leaves everything on the ice. They are a great group of young adults who are very coachable and eager to improve and develop!

Teamwork, respect, battling hard and having fun. 

That is the focus of the Lucknow Sepoys each and every time they hit the ice. Some of them have been playing together every year or second year since Tyke.  Over the years the teamwork and friendships have made them better players, teammates, coaches, and more importantly, good friends.

The Ottawa Herricanes are a group of ladies who have been together for almost 10 years. Most of them started their hockey career as adults and their love of the game has kept them together over the years. Their age range is 24-52 years old and they have great spirit and joy!
