Coaches Address and Awards - Peewee Rep.
Submitted By jwatson on Wednesday, April 15, 2020
So.....this obviously wasn't how I envisioned the season ending this year...

However, I just wanted to take a couple minutes and tell everyone how much I enjoyed working with all the players this year.   I saw a huge improvement in each and every one of them, their work effort and dedication was second to none and their ability and willingness to take direction and try new things was greatly appreciated by the coaching staff.  They are a great group of boys and they were a pleasure to be around!  The hard work on the ice, the jokes, the laughs, the big wins we had and most importantly the love for hockey and the fun we had sharing that with each other made this season a great season!  It's a shame the season was suddenly cut short but on the plus side, no one has to skate the "C4th Mile" anymore.....well, until next season maybe!  Please share this with all your players as they deserve a lot of praise for how this season went.

Thank you to all the parents for helping out with the fundraisers, working the door, running the time clock, washing jerseys, carrying jerseys from arena to arena, jumping on the bench for a game when we needed coaching/trainer help, sharing rides to make sure everyone got to where they needed to go, for all the hours spent driving to and from games and practices and for supporting your players at all times!  Without all of you, none of this is possible.

Thank you to John, Tim, Geoff and Nikki for all your help on and off the ice!  Your time and patience is invaluable and greatly appreciated and I enjoyed working with all of you!

The Seaforth Minor Hockey Association awards for the Peewee Rep team are as follows:

MVP - Jack Nolan.  Jack led the team on the ice with his outstanding work ethic and dedication to the team finishing this year with 42 goals and 14 assists for 56 points.  Jack also lead the team off the ice and in the locker room by being a model teammate, encouraging the rest of the team to be at their best, leading by example, holding the team to the standard and expectations set out at the beginning of the year.

Most Sportsmanlike - Brandon McNaughton.  Brandon is one of the most gentlemanly players to hit the ice.  Brandon always played the game hard and played the game clean, accumulating a total of zero penalty minutes over 39 games.  Brandon was also quick to encourage and support teammates on and off the ice ensuring that everyone was enjoying the game or practice and felt like they were part of the team.

Most Improved - Tyler Ryan.  Tyler has a very high hockey IQ and is not afraid to work hard whenever he steps onto the ice.  Tyler always did his best to comete each and every drill to the best of his ability.  Tyler never backs down from a challenge and as a result has shown tremendous improvement this year.

Most Dedicated - Finlay McKercher.  Finlay put a lot of extra work and dedication into the team this year.  When presented with the challenge of organizing and completing the Good Deeds Cup submission, Finlay jumped at the opportunity, rallying the team to enter and decorate a float on the Christmas parade and conduct a toy drive and with the help of his teammates created a short video documenting the entire process.  Finlay also stepped up to play goalie in a few games this year when the need arose.
