It was just another Saturday night at Community First Soo Pee Wee Arena. Then again, it is one of my favourite ways to spend a Saturday evening during hockey season in Sault Ste. Marie.
Simply put, it is grassroots hockey that, without question, is for the love of the game by the kids who play it.

The novice level is for seven-year olds.
