Pittsburgh Penguins Tournament
Traveling on the team bus to Pittsburgh took about twice as long as it was supposed to, but the journey was filled all the silliness and laughs that you would think would accompany a long team bus ride. This was our first time at the Pittsburgh tournament, and the UPMC Lemieux facility. Nick from the Woodbridge program joined us for the first time, and he fit in perfectly with the team. A swift skater and an adept puck handler, Nick added some depth and power to our offensive line that was much appreciated. We had two come from behind victories against the home team Mighty Pens (5-3) and the Nashville Sled Preds (2-1) , but fell to the Grand Rapids Sled Wings. In the 3rd place match we played the Hammerheads to a tie in regulation, and lost hearbreaker in the shootout round.
