Hi Everyone! Wish we could have made it up there tonight, but we would like to take this opportunity to thank the people that made our time with the LaRonge Ice Wolves such a great experience.
First of all… to Shawn Martin for giving the boys an opportunity to play hockey at the Junior level. Without him and a few scouts the boys would have never had this chance.
To Eric Bell… for keeping things going, even through some very tough times. Your dedication to this organization is undeniable.
To the Schooley’s, Fiske’s, Skalicky’s, Betty Kopek, Blair & Ros DeBruin, and numerous others in the Ice Wolves organization… for the great chats at the games and for making us feel welcome whenever we were in LaRonge, and a special thanks to the Merriman’s as well, for the great parties, shuffleboard games and driving the bus on all those long road trips.
To the coaching staff…for helping the boys gain the knowledge and experience for the Junior game. Even though it’s only 1 step up from AAA, it’s still a huge transition.
To the players… for being great team-mates… whether winning or losing, both on and off the ice.
And… to the best play-by-play guy in the league! Thanks Braden for the great broadcasts and making even the most boring games sound exciting. If you ever need a job, come to the Battlefords, cause their guy sucks! We’ll miss those great sayings…from “tickling the twine”, and “chucking the skin hammers”, to “putting it where Lynette Merriman keeps the cookies.” Keep up the good work Maulsey! You have a great future ahead of you.
There’s been some great players that we’ve had the pleasure to watch over the past couple years…. Kris Joyce, Matty Painchaud, Dave Randall and Cole Porter just to name a few. We’d especially like to take this opportunity to thank Bryce as well, for being there for the boys during the last couple years and opening his home to many of the other players as well.
And lastly…we’d like to thank Evan Vossen for giving 2 twenty year olds a chance to make a run in the playoffs. To Evan and the players coming back, we are hoping and crossing our fingers that you all can turn things around. The league needs it, but especially the community of LaRonge needs it! We hope to see you all again on the hockey trail and best of luck next season! We’ll be watching!
These last 2 ½ years we will treasure and never, ever forget.
Yours truly… Roger, Lisa, Joel & Jared Blaquiere
