My Nephew Is A Red Devil!

My nephew's hockey season is over for another year - or at least the regular season is. Since my sister gave me the Ontario Minor Hockey Association link, I've been following the team's progress fairly regularly. I'm not sure how the playoffs will shape up yet since the teams in the western division still have a few games to finish up. At any rate, Cole's team finished first in the East with a 26-5-5 record - 12 points ahead of the second place team. They finished strong, going 12-0-2 down the stretch. By my count, the team had 9 shut-outs. Cole was responsible for at least 5 or 6 of them if I'm not mistaken. I'm no hockey specialist but I'm betting that if your team is giving up on average 1.4 goals per game over a 36-game season, you're going to be tough to beat. Good job bud! You make us all proud. You succeed because you have a strong work ethic (good job Sis!) and show up for each game ready to give 100%. Best of luck in the playoff Red Devils!

Hey Big Brother

The first round of Playoffs is posted on the site today - Cole's team will face Clarington starting this saturday in a "Best of 5" series - you can follow online by going to the "OMHA Playdowns" then select 2008-2009 & then select Minor Bantam & then Minor Bantam AAA ETA - I believe in total including tournaments Cole had 20 wins with 6 shut outs.

Thanks Amber! I'll be sure to keep tabs on the team's progress.
