  1. For all the negativity on this site about the NOJHL, it sure seems that lots of players from last ye ar are moving up in hockey. Congrats to this young man. Well deserved.

    1. lester,

      For the record, NOJHL members send out a lot of negativity when they should be focused on their own issues.

      This site does not favour one league over another.


  2. Randy, of course there’s been petty mudslinging on both sides. The NOJHL has sure taken a beating here for the last few months. Hopefully it will continue to develop players and provide entertainment for northern Ontario fans. Hopefully also that the CIHL will offer quality hockey as well.

  3. This young man made an impact with the Beavers and so he is desserving of this. Good luck young fella I enjoyed your spirit for the game !

  4. Way to go Tim
    You were a joy and excellent player to have around.
    Also to chauffer about. Some excitement on those rides.
    Please protect those chicklets. They add to that big smile.
    Good luck
