On Thursday January 12th, players,
coaches, and league members gathered in the conference room at the Canad Inns
Polo Park. Food was accompanied with addresses by representatives of both the
AAA council as well as Hockey Manitoba. Owen Weihs (B2 Hawks), Mathieu Moreira
(B2 Sharks), Brandon McCartney (B1 Hawks), Reese Belton (B1 Monarchs), Mikol
Sartor (CM Monarchs), and Cole Krowetz (CM Sharks) were chosen to taste the
spotlight leading up to the big event on Saturday.
Saturday's event at the MTS Iceplex was
packed with entertainment throughout the day from 9 to 6 pm. It featured skills
competitions including Breakaway shooting, Rapid Fire Shooting, and Fastest
skater to name a few. Unfortunately the hardest shot competition was not
included due to technical difficulties with the radar gun - everyone is a
winner. After skills were showcased All-Star games played by the Bantam 2, 1,
and City Midget divisions.
Goalie: Cole Plowman (Hawks)
Away Shooting: Carter Halamandaris (Monarchs)
Fire Shooting: Keiran Cooke (Sharks)
Skater: Jared Chapel (Hawks)
Control: Eric Alaire (Warriors)
Challenge: Team West - Cole Plowman (Hawks), Owen Weihs (Hawks), Hudson Thornton (Warriors), and Jared Chapel (Hawks).
Bantam 2 division game had the highest shot total of the day with a whopping 73
pucks on goal. Unfortunately for team East, it was a landslide in team West's
favour, who finished the game 55 shots and a 12 - 3 victory. Impact players on
the game sheet for team west were Conner Roulette (2G, 1A), Skyler Bruce (4G,
1A), and Magnus Einarson lead the team in helpers on the back end with 3
Challenge: Team West - Nathan Falloon (Yellowhead), Daemon Hunt (Brandon),
Tyson Kozak (Southwest), Justin Keck (Pembina Valley)
Bantam 1 division had a blend of skill, puck movement, and compete contrary to
the usual run-and-gun style of an All-Star game. Team East led the first 2 to
1. The next period left the two teams tied at 4 leaving the game up for grabs
for anyone in the third. Both goaltenders from each team kept it interesting
right up to the end when it had to be decided in a shoot out eventually
resulting in a 7 - 6 win for team west. Impact players were present on both
teams with team east lead by Luc Benedictson and Braden Fischer on forward and
Kyle Lamoureux on the back end. On the west side of things it was an even
spread with Landon Roberts, Tyrone Willan, Brody Wilson, and Roux Bazin all
tallied two points each. Honorable mentions should go out to a collectively
strong class of defensemen from the Bantam 1 group.
Forward: #10 Luc Benedictson
Defenseman: #6 Bray Rookes
Goalie: #1 Fraser Senebald
Jordan Hildebrand (Sharks)
Away Shooting: Kaden Bryant (Monarchs)
Fire Shooting: Mario Esteves (Monarchs)
Skater: Luc Masse (Warriors)
Control: Jayson Szun (Warriors)
Challenge: Team West - Jordan Hildebrand (Sharks), Drake Burgin (Monarchs), Luc
Masse (Warriors), Daniel Pasechinkoff (Interlake)
City Midget division saw bigger bodies playing at a high level with even back
and forth in terms of shots on net however the team west finishing the third
period with 7 goals to 4. Impact players on the score board were Tristan
Thompson (3G,3A) for the West and Riley Barroso (2G, 1A) from the East. Team west
featured a potent mix of speed and finesse while in the East side had talent
but more size especially on the back end. The defense did not care that it was
an All-Star game. Just ask Ryden Fedyck and then do a survey on how fun it is
to play in the corner with him. The City Midget division this year is exciting
and runs deep with talent.
Forward: Tristan Thompson
Defenseman: Riley Barroso
Goalie: Ryland Medwich
