Our Teams, Our City,

OUR GAME!

Alumni Updates India on Ice Players Pay it Forward! First Shift


A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT As president of Airdrie Minor Hockey Association (AMHA), I’m inspired by the professionalism, creativity, dedication and collaborative spirit of our players, coaches, managers, committee members, staff and volunteers. AMHA is diverse, ever changing, and one of the largest minor hockey associations in Alberta. This has been a significant season of change for AMHA, and our experiences this year and commitment to keeping hockey the ‘Greatest Sport in Canada’ will continue to guide us in the future. Our goal will be to continue to implement decisions that ensure our programming will continue to improve the athletic skills of our players; provide clear direction for coaches, bench staff and officials: and maintain good sportsmanship and respect as fundamental pieces of the game. Working together is the foundation of hockey and a critical component to continued success of the game. Thank you to all the players who put their hearts on the ice and gave it their all this season. I believe all of our players have brought excitement, challenges and a wonderful dynamic to AMHA and the city of Airdrie. I am hopeful for what your contributions of leadership, citizenship, passion, hard work and dedication will bring to our community. I am inspired by the opportunities and successes that lie before you and grateful to those whose legacy have left a mark on our families, fans and arenas. While I thank you for what you are doing, leaving your incredible mark upon our hockey community, I encourage you to make connections and friendships that will last a lifetime. My hope is that you will continue to love this great sport and want to share it with the world, and carry out Hockey Alberta’s new vision, “Hockey for Life.” To our coaches, managers, co-ordinators and volunteers – thank you for being involved. You are the engine and energy that drives this organization to be successful. Thank you for making the choice to spend your rare available moments helping our athletes develop their hockey and life skills. Without you, organizations like AMHA would not survive. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do to help grow the youth in our community. As Guy Lafleur once said, “Hockey is not a one-man show; it’s a team effort. If you don’t work as a team – even if one or two guys aren’t working – you’re not going to win. That’s the way it is.” In conclusion, I leave you with this to remember, “Have fun, enjoy the moments and leave it all on the ice.” I hope everyone has a great summer and we look forward to seeing you next season! Cliff Gunther

WHERE ARE AMHA ALUMNI UPDATES AND INSIGHTS

STORY BY BRITTON LEDINGHAM

RYAN STRASCHNITZKI

Former Humboldt Broncos defenceman Ryan Straschnitzki has been hitting the ice four times a week this winter, practicing sledge hockey with the coaching of Team Canada national player Chris Cederstrand. The focus has been learning tricks to move with the puck better in game scenarios with Team Alberta and Team Canada members. “The sled skills and learning how to use your sticks are a completely different thing (from hockey),” says Straschnitzki. “But as far as hockey IQ and hockey smarts go, I think that carried over, and that’s where I have some of the advantage over some players. “I think being with those higher-end players really helps push you to your limits and gets you better as fast as possible.” He’s in the gym as much as possible, following a regime set out by Cederstrand. “I just like being in shape, but it also correlates to sledge hockey,” says Straschnitzki.

RYAN RUSSELL AND STEVE CAMPBELL

Ryan Russell and Steve Campbell, better known as Jacob Ardown and Olly Postanin from On the Bench (OTB), have been producing tons of videos for social media about the fundies (fundamentals) of hockey, and even dipping into baseball, football and tennis. “We’re natural athletes, so just branching out into other sports is easy for us,” says Russell, channeling his Jacob Ardown persona. As of the phone interview in late February, the duo was soon to film an NBA episode with the Minnesota Timberwolves. “It’s crazy. I think everyone just loves sports. If you’re a sports fan, you usually don’t just love one,” says Russell, who played all his years of minor and junior hockey in Airdrie. Since early 2018, they’ve taken a break from coaching within the Airdrie Minor Hockey Association, as they were travelling too much to fully commit, and didn’t feel it was fair to the young players. Russell and Campbell have been working on writing a book about the fundies since they were approached by a publisher in mid-2018. That will be out on shelves sometime in the next year. Campbell says the book has “everything you need to know” about hockey, with insights from their own careers. “If you boys are on a road trip, you don’t got that data on your phones, you can bust out the book and brush up on your homework before a hockey tournament,” says Campbell, who played minor hockey in Toronto and Calgary before playing junior B with the Airdrie Thunder with Russell.

AIRDRIE MINOR HOCKEY 2018-19


They’re looking forward to more collaborations with big creators and professional sports teams, but are tight lipped until filming and releasing the footage. “I just want to thank everyone for following along in this crazy journey,” says Russell. His advice for current minor hockey players is to not “let anyone stop you from going anywhere and just keep playing.” Then talking as Jacob, he says, “Get the elbows up, get in the corners and just keep muckin’ it.” Campbell echoes Russell’s sentiments. “My advice is obviously to just have fun playing the game you love,” he says. “If you have a passion, if you’re having fun and you love what you’re doing, there’s no limit to how far you can take it.”

THEY NOW?

AARON DELL

San Jose Sharks goaltender Aaron Dell has been working hard with his team, which secured second spot in the Pacific Division of the NHL, right behind the Calgary Flames. “It’s been a little up and down at times, but I think we’re peaking at the right time of the year right now,” says Dell. In his third NHL season as a backup to starting goalie Martin Jones, he’s played 24 games this season, and has seen his goals against average rise from 2.00 to 3.23 since 2016-2017. “We’ve been scoring a lot of goals. For me, I’ve just got to be making one or two more of those big stops a game than I had been earlier,” says Dell, noting that as of late, the Sharks have been playing more solid defence for him while still scoring lots. As for advice for current AMHA players, Dell says to “stick with it,” which is a piece of advice handed to him from veteran pro goalie Jason LaBarbera in 2013. “There’s going to be lots of ups and downs, it’s not always going to go the way you want it to, but stick with it and believe in yourself, and that’s all you can do personally. Sometimes you end up in the right spot at the right time, and you just have to be ready for it.” The 29-year-old goalie had a long road to playing pro, and appreciates the advice, which he says applies to all aspects of life. Dell played atom, peewee and bantam in Airdrie, before playing midget with the Rocky Mountain Lightning in Carstairs. He has fond memories of minor hockey. “I think just the relationships you build overall was a big thing for me,” says Dell. He grew up playing with Dana Tyrell and Zach Boychuk, noting he and Tyrell still try to catch up every summer. “You’ve got to have fun; that’s something some people forget sometimes,” says Dell. “Enjoy yourself and have a good time with your friends and stick with it are probably the three things I say are my biggest points.” “It’s tough to stick with it if it’s something you don’t enjoy.”

ZACH BOYCHUK

Airdrian and former Carolina Hurricanes forward Zach Boychuk has been pursuing pro hockey abroad for the last few seasons. He recently left the Kontinental Hockey League’s (KHL) Cherepovets Severstal after 25 games this season, and has been with Bern SC, a top-tier team in the Swiss National League, for the rest of the season. Boychuk represented Team Canada to win the Spengler Cup in 2017, and make it to the final in 2018.

DANA TYRELL

Former Tampa Bay Lightning centreman Dana Tyrell is pivoting from playing in the American Hockey League and ECHL to plans of coaching minor hockey. The 29-year-old Airdrian says he is planning to buy a house in Airdrie in the spring, and furthering conversations with friends in the industry, like Airdrie CFR Chemicals Bisons AAA midget hockey team’s associate coach Dustin Taylor. “That’s what’s been popping out in my mind and my heart,” says Tyrell. “I want to give it a shot, and I want to help out some kids that are younger than me.” He re-ignited his love for hockey when he put his skates on again recently after a year off. “I love being out on the ice,” says Tyrell. “Everything makes sense for me out on the ice.... The game has taught me everything. It’s taught me how to live life today.”

8

The lifelong dream of playing in the NHL has been fulfilled, and hockey is still his passion. “There’s so much to life that I’ve learned since being retired from hockey,” says Tyrell. His advice to young players is work hard. “Nothing in life comes easy,” says Tyrell. “You’ve got to work hard, and your hard work will pay off as long as you give it everything you’ve got. You’ve got to put more than just your sweat and your tears into it. It’s got to control your life. “You’ve got to absolutely love what you do to make it to the next level or to wherever you want to be. I think that goes with everything in life. If you have those qualities, you can accomplish anything.” He has fond memories of growing up with Cody Esposito and Dustin Taylor, of whom he says, “He’s just a great guy, and I’m so grateful for him in my life.”

TY RATTIE

Airdrie’s Ty Rattie has been logging time with the Edmonton Oilers this season. Rattie had ice time with Connor McDavid and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, but an injury took him out early in the season. He ended up playing 48 games and finished the season with four goals and seven assists. The Oilers did not make the playoffs.

The third Annual Turkey Bowl was a huge success in 2018.  Between the Female Atom A, Female Atom B and Female Midget AA teams, 1,015 turkeys were donated to the Airdrie Food Bank, more than doubling their goal and raising the bar for years to come. This donation not only fed families in Airdrie but was also sent to rural communities across Alberta that had a shortage of turkeys over the holiday season.  Atom Tier 4 volunteered at the Airdrie Food Bank.

FIRST SHIFT “TO PLAY THE GAME IS GOOD, TO WIN IS BETTER, BUT TO LOVE THE GAME IS BEST OF ALL” – Unknown

In 2019 Airdrie Minor Hockey had the opportunity to host the Canadian Tire and Bauer ‘First Shift Program.” This program offered a low-commitment, affordable and fun introduction to hockey for children aged six to 12 who had never played hockey before, or never skated. The program was run by AMHA’s PeeWee AA coach Spencer Barlow, who was joined by several AMHA coaches from different levels and backgrounds. The coaches were joined by two AMHA athletes. The participants took part in a welcome event that included professional fitting and distribution of all of their necessary hockey gear. This was followed by six weeks of one-hour on-ice-sessions. The sessions allowed athletes an opportunity to try out Canada’s game in a fun, safe environment. The emphasis on fun and skill development was very apparent in the sessions with many parents and athletes commenting on what an amazing program it was. Thank you to coaches Spencer Barlow, Zoey Crispens, Stephen Seekings, Sean Hunter, Mike Street, Mason Macleod, Clinton Ziemer, Jeremy Walker, Jared Brookshaw and Jamie Tittemore for making the program a huge success and igniting a passion in the next generation of athletes.

ecently, Hockey Canada mandated that all Novice aged players within Canadian Minor Hockey associations switch to half-ice hockey for the 2019/2020 season. One of AMHA’s core values is to be a leader and front-runner in the area of player and coach development and, as a result, intro-

duced half-ice hockey for the 2018/2019 season for our Novice age groups. Introducing half-ice hockey early allows players, coaches and parents within our organization to get a better understanding and head start on the new format prior to the mandatory change. The change will allow for an easier transition and help reintroduce the Long-Term Athlete Development model which focuses on players further developing their skills to become more well-rounded players.. Since 2005, many sports organizations have adopted and implemented the Long-Term Athlete Development model. It has been both praised and criticized, but the results are coming in and show that focusing on skills, speed – and above all – fun, develops more well-rounded, happier and skilled athletes. The changes have shown that the development of athletes has become more ‘sophisticated’; their use of space and thought process is better, they play and touch the puck more, they’re more involved in the game, and by being more skilled, happy and active, they are performing better.

MOVING ON…

OUR GRADUATING MIDGETS

Your dedication, commitment and enthusiasm for the sport of hockey has brought a wonderful dynamic to AMHA and the city of Airdrie.  Your journey has included growth in so many areas – not just hockey. You may have joined the sport of hockey for a number of reasons – maybe you enjoy a challenge, or like being a part of a team, or were particularly skilled in skating – and the discipline, principles and lessons you have learned will make your transition into the next stage of your life much smoother.  Don’t forget these lessons as you move forward. Be a leader among family, friends and in your community. Remember the dedication, self-sacrifice, discipline and perseverance you have required to play Canada’s Great Game. Continue it on into your careers and families. I hope we have encouraged, supported, and prepared you to make a mark on society. And always remember, no matter where your travels take you, please know you always have a home here at AMHA. Whether it’s to coach, join the board or to introduce your own children to hockey, there will always be opportunities for you here and in Airdrie.

O

n behalf of AMHA, I would like to take a moment to recognize our Graduating Midget players for the 2019 season. Whether these players have been with us since before they could skate, or just joined our organization this season, they have become a part of the AMHA ‘family’.

From all of us at AMHA, thank you for your time over these past years, and best of luck in all of your future endeavors.  We will always be cheering for you! AMHA President Cliff Gunther

TECHMATION THUNDER PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONS! STORY BY SCOTT FISHER, PHOTOS BY SERGEI BELSKI

T

he Airdrie Techmation Thunder completed their season of dreams in dramatic fashion.

Winger Brayden Dunn scored late in regulation time on a brilliant individual effort and then sniped the winner 31 seconds into overtime as the Thunder beat the Wainwright Bisons 4-3 to capture the franchise’s first Jr. B provincial championship in Wetaskiwin. The 20-year-old Calgarian says the provincial crown put the finishing touches on a special season. “Once we realized the kind of team that we had, and the bond that we shared with each other, we knew we were something special,” Dunn says. “To finally get it done, to win the league and the provincials, it’s unreal. “I’m so proud of all these guys and I’m looking forward to the friendships I’ve made for the future.” The Thunder roared out of the gates, posting 18 straight wins before finally tasting defeat in mid-November. They went on to set a franchise record by going 35-3 during the Heritage Junior Hockey League regular season, out-scoring the opposition by an astounding margin of 335-96. Jordan McConnell and Rylan Plante-Crough both finished with 50 goals and McConnell’s 125 points set an HJHL record. Airdrie continued its magical run by going 11-2 in the post-season to capture the club’s third HJHL title (the previous championships came in 1997 and 2000). A 5-0 performance at the provincial tournament gave the club an overall mark of 51-5. Head coach Derek Stamp says he enjoyed every step of the journey. “I couldn’t be more proud of the group,” he says. “From ownership to management to the assistant coaches and trainers and obviously all the players, it’s an incredible source of pride. “This group, they were champions right from the get-go. “This just caps it off.”

THANK YOU

VOLUNTEERS! “VOLUNTEERS DO NOT NECESSARILY HAVE THE TIME, THEY HAVE THE HEART” - Elizabeth Andrew Airdrie Minor Hockey would like to thank all of our volunteers for the 2018/2019 season. One of the major missions of AMHA is to nurture the complete player and develop a well-rounded citizen. We emphasize a healthy balance in hockey and life because hockey is only part of one’s life, it is not the rest of one’s life. AMHA hopes to create leaders within our community through the sport of hockey that will continue to inspire and change the people around them. Whether it’s our countless coaches, board members, committee members, parents, athletes and friends of AMHA who made this season possible, it’s clear that our volunteers give their time, energy and selves to make our hockey community a better place. The energy of our volunteers is contagious and there is a great comfort in knowing that there are so many individuals willing and ready to jump in to help out on any initiatives at the drop of a hat. It cannot be said enough that our volunteers have a profound impact on more than 1,600 young athletes registered. We recognize that without the immeasurable contribution of its volunteers, minor hockey would not exist, and we are extremely grateful. AIRDRIE MINOR HOCKEY 2018-19
