As teams look towards the playoffs there are several teams primed to get their names engraved on the JR PIHA Championship plaque. And while the teams start to come together we can’t forget the individual efforts that are getting these squads there.
A few weeks ago the November Player of the Month (POM) were announced and the Blizzard organization was well represented. Dawson Charles took the honors in the 8u division. His ability at his age to skate and have the understanding to find that open man has helped the JR Prowlers into the second spot in that division.
Payton Sutherland does it all as she is a tremendous goalie for the Jr Blizzard 12u team but is recognized here as the 10u POM. In the 12u Major division Gavin Barr has led the Jr Thunder to soul possession of second place while Mason Macklin of the JR Blizzard 12u Minor squad has been a bright star on a team struggling to make playoffs. In the 15u division, Chase Trautwein has led the Jr Blizzard to some huge wins and is looking to lead them during this stretch run to their first championship.
Here are the current division leaders for this 2016 season:
8u – Jr Blizzard
10u – Jr Prowlers
12u Minor – Jr Thunder
12u Major – Prowlers Grey
15u – Fire Red
All these teams and players are looking towards the weekend of December 17-18 as they look to put their stamp on the 2016 season. Good luck to all teams during this final stretch of the season.
