Boys' hockey: seniors Carter Nelson, Gabe Montieth, Gavin Anderson, Kaleb Thingelstad and Noah Kiel

Coach Josh Hardy: “This week's Pirates of the Week for the boy's hockey team are our seniors: Gavin Anderson, Noah Kiel, Carter Nelson, Kaleb Thingelstad and Gabe Monteith. I'm sure growing up they never envisioned a senior year where players were wearing masks and having big chunks of games taken out due to being a close contact, but they've taken the challenge head-on and made the best of it. I've been extremely proud of how they've led this team through all the challenges of this season. They've come to the rink with a smile on their face (even if we couldn't see it behind the mask) and made the best of a sometimes extremely difficult situation. Their contributions on and off the ice will be missed and I'm excited to see what they all do in their next chapter of life!”
