Some Closing Thoughts for 2017-18
From Owner/Coach Steve Adams

12:07pm Apr 8
Yesterday, we fell 4-3 to Sherwood Metros in semi-final play at the Maritime and Northern Canadian Championships. It was a hard fought game, with some impressive end-to-end action. Although we are all disappointed, I certainly wouldn't trade this season for anything. I had the absolute privilege to be associated with 23 fine young men, a dedicated staff, amazing sponsors and the most loyal fans on the planet. From the bottom of my heart I thank each and every one of you. To our overage players, (Greg) GT Delano, Dan MacKnight, Francois Poirier and Scott Munro, you have earned my respect and that of our players. I wish you all the very best in your future hockey and whatever life brings your way. Len Goucher, our web-site and video specialist. You built the best website of any junior team in Nova Scotia. We all enjoyed the quality of your work, and your selfless dedication to our team. Allan Chamberlain our water boy and equipment manager. Although I teased you far more than I should have, you taught me more about life than you will ever know. David Wells who helped with our gear, made sure our boys had their jerseys, tape, water and anything else they needed to play. Dylan Hearns and Shawn Sabine stepped up and helped carry us through the playoffs and into the Maritime Chmpionships. The personal sacrifices you made have not gone unnoticed. For that, I thank you. And finally to Annette Hobin and Mike Murphy. If not for your tireless work and unequivocal commitment to our club, we may not have even had a team. We all owe you a debt of gratitude. Until camp opens up later this summer, I wish you all the very best in the off-season.

We look forward to an exciting upcoming season of hockey.

November 11, 2017
 

    Last nights game, November 11, 2017, brought out the best and the worst in some players. Five minutes into the first period #23 Michael Anthony

    sustained a painful knee injury. With no medical support available, #77 Greg Delano and #17 Francois Poirier and #3 Dan Nickerson stepped up to take charge and made a difficult situation for Anthony safer, extending first aid and reassurance to the injured player until EMS arrived to administer pain killing drugs and  take him to hospital. All of us hope Michael is back on the recovery road soon.

    WELL DONE GUYS!

     

    ** By way of unconfirmed information, Michael has a dislocated knee and torn MCL. We wish him a successful recovery over time.**

     

    On the flip side of the game I have other thoughts but my Dad was always one to know when its better to keep your thoughts and comments to yourself. Enough said!

     


    Dec 12, 2017

    Coming up on the Christmas break, and 17 games complete, the Attack finds themselves on top with 31 points, 5 points ahead of Eastern Shore Thunder and Avon River Rats. It has been a good season with both MacKnight and Poirier sharing the points total lead at 54 and 53. With some of the young players really coming along and others like 19 year old Nolan King racking up 8 points in 4 games and a hat trick on November 25th, the Attack player roster is being fined tuned with an impressive list of talent.

     

    The five team league has provided some exciting hockey and in many cases the lop-sided scores NOT reflecting the game play. I have been amazed why the community does not fill the Spryfield Arena on game night. These players and team owners, coaches and managers pour their 'heart and soul' into providing these young players a platform to continue the game they love, albeit, most have work and university committments. Hopefully 2018 will show an increase in support for all of the teams.

     

    With the Christmas season just around the corner, as web designer for the Spryfield Attack, I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season and look forward to the second half of the 2017-2018 Nova Scotia Regional Junior Hockey League schedule.

     


     

    January, 2018

    We wish Paul Strople all the best as he leaves the Attack Hockey Club and takes on a new role as Director of Hockey Operations, for the Chineese Womens Hockey organization. China is not a new destination for Paul but with an new and increased role in the direction of womens' hockey in the developing sport of hockey in such a vast, populated country, we say farwell to our head coach and friend and know that our loss is China's gain. Good luck (祝你好运)Paul!
