We had almost 50 kids try hockey for the first time at our November 10th, 2018 event.  Thank you to the 06 Raiders Coaches, players and hockey moms and dads.   Also thanks to the Mite and Squirt Coaches who came to help.   It was a great event, everyone loved it and we couldn't have done it without you!
