The Men’s Pro/AIHL division started today and has some awesome teams.The  LA Pama Cyclones, AKS, Reebok HB, and the Mission Syndicate along with about 5 other teams should make for some great hockey.

Update from Irvine…

Jeff Haze emailed over an update from the Irvine rink…

JO’s Site # 2 949 Roller Hockey Center Is In Full Effect on Day 1

The sun has been shining and we have a nice lite breeze at the outdoor facility known as 949 Roller Hockey Center.  The games have been fantastic throughout.

The 18 U Girls Revision Pandemonium teams battled each other with Pandemonium Black coming out on top 6-2.  Let me tell you these teams may have been from the same club but there was no love when it came to each other when the puck was in the corner.

The 12 U boys have been skating all over and these little rascals can play some puck.

In the 16 U AAA/AA and A division which is always filled with excitement has been the greatest when it comes to sportsmanship.  The kids sitting in the stands from all the teams talking about their games and how they can beat up on their rival opponents.

A lot of good hockey is to come over the next 10 days and the action will jam packed here.  I look forward to seeing everybody over here so stop on by and say hello.

Lastly a special thank you to Eddie Limbaga and Miguel Castellanos the management here at 949.  They have been the most gracious hosts and have been happy to be running around and seeing the kids.

Skills and more.

After a few hours of games it was time for the 16u skills competition. Check out the pictures and video below for the winners.

Shootout winner: Evan Thompson Top Goalie Winner:Josh Fowler

Fastest Skater: Brendon Dean

Also, Chris Arnold from the Rattlers won the Hardest Shot contest with a 90mph clapper. I didn’t get the chance for a picture but he won a nice $200 reebok stick.. not bad.

Other prizes included a Nintendo Wii and a $600 Reebok Skate gift certificate.

If you haven’t signed up for the other age division skills competition’s… do it asap because the prizes are sick. Flat screen tv’s, Nintendo Wii’s and DS’s, and more Reebok and Labeda gear.
