What you think about “Thunderbird teams in first place”
nice to read about the Midgets for a change.
Jimmy Capy is the reasen for the success of the Thunderbird Midgets. A hell of a Coach!!
Nice story about our 2 “Thunderbirds” teams.
Randy The battalion have signed 2012 Draft Pick Jacob Kment, where was Jacob playing to start this year?
Cormier was traded to be a starter next year because Jake Smith has verbally committed to an Overage Year.
Good moves by Stand Butler and the Battalion
Kment was with the Soo T-Birds of the NOJHL.
That is Brian Kment, who plays for the Thunderbirds, not Jake Kment.
Sorry Questions: I have no idea where Jacob or Jake Kment has been playing.
Kment, 18, has been at home practising with the junior A Sault Ste. Marie Thunderbirds. He arrived in North Bay on Sunday night and hit the practice ice Monday with the Troops.
He played last year for the Essex 73’s of the Great Lakes Junior C Hockey League. The six-foot-two, 190-pound Kment posted a won-lost-extended record of 15-2-1 in the regular season with a 2.45 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage before winning his four playoff decisions as Essex captured the league title.
