It was a wild ride while it lasted, folks. But all good things must come to an end, eh? The 2016-17 high school hockey season came to a close here this past week in beautiful Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. While I jumped into the swing of things a couple weeks late, it was fun touching base with each of the northeastern school teams over the course of the season. It’s pretty cool how many kids and coaches give so much of their time to the sport, while still keeping the game fun and enjoyable and playing at a fairly competitive level. I’m already looking forward to covering the season again next year.

And, to put a little icing on the cake, the Murdoch MacKay Clansmen in the Price Division (ie. “C” division) came out as champions this season. Way to be, boys!

Here are my stories from the second half of the season, if you’re so inclined as to read on…

Clean sweep through playoffs

Excitement and heartbreak on the ice

Local high school playoffs continue

Crunch time for WHSHL

Local teams shooting for WWHSHL glory

More to Titans than record

Kodiaks hungry to finish on top

And I even got to check in on the MMJHL Transcona Railer Express, though they didn’t do too well this season. Still a great group out playing out there at the East End Arena. Hope to do more with them next season.
