After the most successful regular season in team history, the team is looking to complete the drive for their fourth consecutive League Championship.
With a regular season record of 31-2-1 we have successfully surpassed our previous best of 29-2-1 set in the 2010-2011 campaign. This season has brought us a ton of success but has also been a learning curve for the players and coaching staff. After losing key members from last years' squad the 2013-2014 season was thought to be one of a rebuild for us and it was a pleasant surprise to see how the team performed early on, stringing together a 16 and 10 game winning streaks throughout the year.
Leading the way for the Ice was Christian Nypower and Captain Dallas Ansell who finished with a combined 171 points between the two of them. This type of offense has become familiar in the past couple seasons but with a good offence is the strong need for a good defense. The tandem of Brandyn Garth and David Rupp were brilliant all season splitting the workload.
Being a Coach for a successful hockey team, one could go on and on for all the accomplishments and accolades from the regular season. It is just that though; "The Regular Season" and all that has been accomplished so far is the chance to host the first two games in a playoff series. The beauty of the game is that on any given night any team can render success and be on top of world. The hard part is being able to beat a single team four times and force that team to hang up their blades for another season. Going into this post season I believe we enter as favorites to repeat as Champs. I think that makes our job harder as more is expected of us. I also think that we wouldn't want it any other way as the Title of "Champs" is ours and ours only to defend. Expect fast paced, hard hitting hockey going forward into the 2014 post season.
We will see Everybody Down at The Rink!!
