I have played triple A hockey for the Cranberry Portage Hawks for a short period of time. Also I have played Junior B with Peguis and Junior A with Flin Flon. I have encountered many injuries through out my career, but none to which I had to hang up my skates. Hockey here in northern Manitoba, is almost a religion. Where I'm from, Peguis Indian Band. We have a tremendous fan base, also we have quit the few talented players from here. Junior B here is like playing in the WHL, Western Hockey League. The fans nearly bring the house down on big hits and spectacular goals. Our house is always packed and always cheer on our Juniors.
I have also had a short stint in the SJHL, Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. Boy I had to be fast for this league, if I was caught looking down at the puck. It was nighty night. Believe me, there is nothing like the crowd roaring when you get plastered. And the high you get when you score, they love you. Horns blaring, the crowd doing the wave, It's gloriuos.
I have written this book on experiance as a player, it is completely fiction. Where it takes place is where I have played and loved. Hockey to me at one point in my life was my pride and joy, the air I breath. Now I only play from time to time, it is still my passion, I still relive those moments in my past, when I lace up my blades on more time. It was my dream to be the best, these were my dreams of glory.
I hope I have provided you, with more intake of my life as a hockey player.
