AAA Hockey Winnipeg held a press conference prior to the all-star game with representatives from each age division

On Thursday January 10th AAA Hockey held their annual All-star game press conference which showcased 6 players, 2 from each division, and served as the lead up event to the All-star day which was on January 12, 2019.  The players that represented the divisions were Lukas Hansen and Peter Magnus who represented the Bantam 2 division, Jason Ruff and Jackson Sirrell to represent the Bantam 1 division and finally Rhonan White and Anton Uruski who represented the U17 Midget Prep league.  Each of the players coaches wrote a short biography on them and their impact on the team this year which you can see below. 


Team East - Lukas Hansen – Bantam II Warriors

Lukas Hansen is the captain of the b2 Winnipeg Warriors. He is what every coach wants in a player. A very high skill set, a great work ethic and a passion for the game that keeps him motivated and honest. He currently leads the league in goals with 15 goals through the first 18 games.


Team West - Peter Magnus – Bantam II Monarchs

Peter is an outstanding student athlete, and AAA teammate. Boosting the best shot in the league Peter is a danger to the opposition every time he touches a puck. Leading the Monarchs in goals (10) and third in points (19), number 10 has the ability to change a game at a moments notice. He is a wonderful teammate with amazing grads and attends the prestigious St. John’s Ravenscourt. The future is very bright for this young man.


Team East - Jason Ruff – Bantam I Monarchs

As the captain of the Bantam 1 AAA Monarchs Jason Ruff is a true leader on and off the ice.

On the ice the 6’1” rugged and skilled defensemen shows his leadership by controlling the play offensively and defensively. Offensively he anchors the power play and boasts an impressive 8 goals and 8 assists in 20 games. 5 on 5 he leads the team with a very impressive plus 35 ranking.

Jason’s leadership off the ice is second to none. He garners everyone’s respect and teammates feed off his positive attitude. Jason’s work ethic, skill set, and leadership makes him a very deserving candidate for the 2019 AAA Eastern All Star team.


Team East – Jackson Sirrell – Bantam I Sharks

Jackson is a great team player who is able to remain positive in all situations on and off the ice.  This is truly shown with the respect that he gives to his fellow players as well as his coaches.  Jacksons hockey sense, ability to see and make plays and his powerful shot has made him one of the elite players in the Bantam 1 division. Jackson is currently sitting at 7 goals and 11 assists for 18 total points this season.


Team East – Rhonan White – U17 Midget Prep Sharks

Rhonan is a big character player, in his 2nd year playing defense.  He has the ability to make big plays, and is a competitor with a big heart.  You can always find Rhonan smiling, and is always respectful with all his teammates and peers.  He is currently sitting 3rd among league defence in scoring with 5 goals, 11 assists totalling 16 points.  His great work continues beyond the rink and into school where he has 1st honors at MBCI School. Rhonan is a coach’s definition of a true captain.



Team West – Anton Uruski – U17 Midget Prep Monarchs

Anton is the Captain of the U17 Monarchs who plays a complete 200 ft game.  His offensive abilities (6G-16A-22PTS) make him the 2nd ranked offensive defenseman in the U17 Midget Prep League behind only his line-mate Hayden Forrest. 

Anton is a master of the first pass to break out of the zone and a keystone on the Monarchs Power Play and Penalty Kill units.  Anton’s offensive skills, though impressive, are not solely what make him a great hockey player.  The defensive side of his game is second to none in the league, and he does it all with an edge that has also earned him 54 PIM.  Opposing players rarely even try to get by Anton in a 1 on 1 situation, and for this they cannot be blamed.

Take all of these qualities and add to it a natural affinity for leadership, and an unrivalled effort and compete level, and you get the ultimate defenseman and captain.  One which any coach in the league would be ecstatic to have in their arsenal.

Game of the Week- Bantam 2 Monarchs vs Sharks

By Kaelin Baydock 11/14/2018, 4:45pm CST

The Sharks look for their first win of the season against the second place Monarchs

With the first major snow fall hitting Winnipeg, the stands were full of eager fans ready to watch some hockey.  Both teams came out with their ‘guns a blazing’ making for an exciting first period full of chances for each team to get onto the score board.  The Monarchs controlled possession of the puck near the midway point of the period, hemming the Sharks in their zone.  This possession led to a flurry of in zone chances with the Monarchs Peter Magus giving them a 1-0 lead.  This lead lasted until the Sharks tied things up on an odd man rush.  Sharks forward Hayden Chaloner ripped the puck right under the bar ending the period with both teams locked up at 1 goal apiece.     


Both teams came out for the second period pushing to get the next goal.  The Sharks struck first in the early minutes of the period with forward Mason Dubberley sliding one into the net putting the Sharks up by a score of 2-1.  Play continued with the Monarchs pushing to get the equalizing goal.  Just a few minutes later the Monarchs search for a goal came to an end with Kai Elkie getting his second goal of the season.  Both teams continued to play a physical game and buzz around the ice with many opportunities to score being created by each team.  It isn’t until the Monarchs Nathan Morrison gets the puck on his stick that a goal is scored, putting his team up by a score of 3-2 at the end of the second period. 


The Sharks, not backing down from a challenge, play the third period seeking some revenge.  With play going from end to end, the Sharks are able to catch an odd man rush into the Monarchs zone near the midway point of the period.  There was no mistake made by the Sharks who are able to capitalize on the chance with Jack Kabaluk snapping the puck past Monarchs net minder Tristan Vary.  Once again the game is tied up, 3-3.  With the Sharks riding an emotional wave they sustain pressure against the Monarchs creating a flurry of chances.  This wave of energy pays off in another Sharks goal from the stick of Mason Dubberley putting them up 4-3, and spelling and early exit from the game for Monarchs goaltender Tristan Vary who is replaced by Nate Grant.  With only a few minutes left to play the Monarchs elect to pull their goalie for the extra attacker but the Sharks are able to buckle down in their zone and prevent the Monarchs from scoring an equalizing goal giving them a 4-3 upset victory over the Monarchs.
