Pre-Reg Draw Winners

CHE apologizes for being so late with the announcement of our Pre-Registration Draw Winners.  Unfortunately (or fortunately) we’ve made a number of changes to our 2015 Summer Camps and it’s taken us a little longer than normal to get the administrative side up to date in order to determine the draw winners.  So without further ado, here are the 2015 winners!

Hobey Baker Nominees

The Hobey Baker Award has been given out to a male hockey player in the NCAA since 1981 with notable recipients including: Paul Kariya, Brendan Morrison, Chris Drury, Jordan Leopold, Ryan Miller, Matt Carle and most recently, Johnny Hockey (Johnny Gaudreau).  The award winner must “exhibit strength of character both on and off the ice” and “contribute to the integrity of the team and display outstanding skills in all phases of the game.”  CHE is excited and proud to announce that 3 former CHE campers are among the nominees for this years award.

Ginn

Matt Ginn from Lindsay, ON is a Senior at Holy Cross and leads Atlantic Hockey with a .933 save percentage and 2.01 goals against average.  In his 4 years down in Worcester, Matt has set the school record for career saves (3244), shutouts (7), and minutes played (7044:05).  A long time camper who attending the Specialized Goalie Program for many years, Matt enjoyed his time at the camp so much he went on to be a camp councilor, and ultimately one of our head goalie instructors.  Good luck Ginner, we’re pulling for you.

Gillam

Mitch Gillam from Peterborough, ON has had a stellar Sophomore year at Cornell University, leading the nation with a staggeringly low 1.26 goals against average and .958 save percentage.  He has allowed one or fewer goals in seven of his nine starts this season.  Another longtime participant in the Specialized Goalie Program, Gillam spent many summers refining his skills under the tutelage of Red Wings goalie coach Jim Bedard and other CHE instructors.  Good luck Mitch!

Seney

Brett Seney from London, ON attended the Junior / College / AAA Conditioning Program for many years, always leading the ongoing week long tournament in scoring against some of the best young talent from across the country. Brett’s NCAA career has gotten off to a quick start, and in his rookie season at Merrimack College, Brett leads the team with 15 points (6 goals, 9 assists), an 18.1% shooting percentage (shoot the puck Seney), and a +6 plus/minus.  He is currently tied for 2nd in rookie scoring in the HEA and tied for 8th in rookie points per game across the nation with a 0.88 scoring average.  A long shot to win this year, there’s no doubt a Hobey Baker could be in Brett’s future.

Pond Hockey Classic

As winter weather finally takes hold over most of the country, it’s easy to imagine living under a blanket for the duration of the season, but what makes Canadians so resilient is our ability to overcome and take advantage of our surroundings.  And is there anything more Canadian than grabbing a shovel, skates, sticks and nets, bundling up in all our gear and playing a relaxed game of hockey on a frozen pond or lake?  We don’t think so, which is why we’ve set up 2 different Pond Hockey Tournaments in world class destinations this February 6 – 8, 2015.

2014-02-23+CHE+Mont+Tremblant--3090909445-O

Right in the heart of the Laurentians, Mont-Tremblant is just 1.5 hour drive from both Ottawa and Montreal and is eastern Canada’s premier ski resort with world class mountain, hotels and apres ski.   This picturesque village is also surrounded my a number of lakes, and the typically frigid temperatures make it an ideal situation for a pond hockey event.  Teams of 4 – 6 players will head to Tremblant for a taste of French Canadian culture, ice cold beverages and a truly Canadian experience as they battle it out on beautiful Lac Mercier, just 5 minutes from the main village.  There’s still space available and team cal CLICK HERE for details and to register.

For teams on the western side of the continent, we’ve substituted the Laurentians for the Rockies, Lac Mercier for Lake Mildred, and the mountain town of Mont-Trembant for the winter wonderland in Jasper, AB.  Surrounded by glacier covered peaks rising over 10000 feet into the sky, it feels like a scene from a Molson Canadian commercial.  Teams can choose to just play in the tournament February 6 – 8, but most teams will take the all inclusive package and spend the weekend at the historical Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge where they can warm their feet and relax with a cold beverage after battling it out against teams from all over western Canada and US.  Space is tight, but there’s still room for teams to join and you can CLICK HERE for more details.

2014-02-23+CHE+Mont+Tremblant--3090896606-O

As Canadians, it’s our duty to show mother nature who’s boss during these precarious and frigid winter months, and what better way to do so than grabbing a few friends and heading to one of these pristine destinations for what could be the ultimate in Canadian traditions.

Canada takes Gold!!!

pch211_HKO_World_Junior_Canada_Russia_20150105

A huge congratulations to everyone at Hockey Canada, especially the coaches and players who participated in the WJHC this past week.  A truly impressive and inspiring performance by a group of hyper-talented young men who took the energy of the Canadian crowds and propelled themselves to hang on to a 1 goal lead in one of the best 3rd period performances in recent memory.
