Should there be an occasion for an Arrowhawk to provide a Christmas card to our fantastic captain Mark Monahan, please consider this. It's a spectacular example of leadership and perseverance in the face of adversity.
Oh, and the Arrowhawks are off to a brilliant summer session with a record of 6-2.
There are some new skaters on the Arrowhawks club this summer. They are slightly more skilled then I am, though they aren't nearly as handsome. Leading the charge are Kurt VonZychlin, Adam DePerro, Ryan Saucek and a determined old guard Bryan Wharton and Kevin Griffith. Tom Morgan is the skipper this session, skating in whatever position is necessary. Ryan Turay, Rob Walls and Jason DeJong are plowing through opponents, providing sound two-way play in both zones as needed.
The summer session is always a mixed bag from a roster perspective. Nick Lanctot and Ted Bulwinkle continue to work their blue line magic, thwarting attacks in front of netminder Jamie Santho, who remains awesome in net.
The Eskimos won the league last session and believe it or not have gotten better with two new offensive dynamos. If the Hawks are going to win the hoodie this session, it'll take a full squad effort.
Terry Walker and Rich Clingman have bolstered the lines with effective play in the offensive zone for the Hawks. Will it be enough? Time will tell.
Happy Birthday, Mark.
