SUCCESS ACHIEVED AT SEDMHA FOR THE ATOM A BLUES

By Rob McLure, Asst. Coach

When Glenn Leaman assembled his team of 17 Atom A players along with their Parents for that first team meeting back in October he was clear, “We will not be measuring this year’s success by wins and losses. Our goals are to provide a quality program of skill development, game play instruction and personal and team growth.”, he went on to say, “We will measure the year’s accomplishments by comparing where we finishing on the development ladder and looking back to compare how much we have climbed.”

Well as one of the assistant coaches on that team this season, I must admit those words expressed in that original meeting rang so true during our competition in the infamous SEDMHA year-end tournament recently… Continue reading SUCCESS ACHIEVED AT SEDMHA FOR THE ATOM A BLUES

Volunteer,

Hockey New Brunswick provides an opportunity for youth in our province to participate

in hockey. This organization would not be able to create such opportunities if it were not

for you, the volunteer.

Minor hockey in New Brunswick is continuing to grow and better develop our youth, due

to the large number of volunteers that come forward every year. The work that you do

does not go unnoticed. Countless hours spent in the rink for games and practices,

scheduling of ice times and the many road trips throughout the province are just a few of

the roles and responsibilities that you as a volunteer undertake.

I personally wish to thank you for all that you do for your minor hockey association.

Without you we as an organization would not be able to lead, develop and promote

positive hockey experiences for the youth of New Brunswick.

Respectfully,

Congratulations to our RMHC Team of the Year!

With 52 wins, 5 losses, and 7 ties, 22 shut outs in 64 games, 7 banner wins including Provincial Bantam AA Champions, there was never any doubt who our Team of the Year would be.  

We are so proud to award this honour to our Bantam AA Blues. 

An interesting side note this spectacular season is that head Coach Sean Ryan won the same Provincial medal back in the 2000-2001 season which was the same years that all his current players were born. Coach Sean had his medal in the dressing room for the boys to tap for luck before each game.

Congratulations to Coach Sean, Assistant Coaches; Jeff Whiteway and Ryan Meisner, manager Kevin Donovan, and all the players and parents. This will truly be a season to remember.

Riverview Minor Hockey closes the books on another hugely successful season!

Hockey is alive and well here in Riverview!

With all five of our Riverview Blues Competitive teams heading to provincials this past weekend, there was much excitement and anticipation.

We are so proud to report that two out of our four teams won Provincial banners and the other two went all the way to the semi finals!

Our Peewee B Blues attended provincials in Grand Falls.  They did not make cross-overs, but they did very well against some tough competition and considered the weekend a success and great experience for all the players.

Our Peewee A Blues made it to their semi finals in York North and the Midget B Blues finished first overall in the playoffs and made it to their semi final game in Saint John losing a very close game 2-1.

Our Bantam B Blues won a hard fought final game on home ice against Restigouche West capturing our first banner of the weekend.

It is also worth noting that several former RMHC players won the Midget AAA provincial banner playing with the Moncton AAA Hawks as well as many of our former female players who also captured provincial gold playing for the Female Bantam and Midget AAA Moncton Rockets.
