It’s Tournament Time Again: Bantam/Midget Tournament reaches 52 By Terry Tinkess
When you follow minor hockey, you never know what you will see. One year you ﬁnd yourself wondering why some players are even playing at a particular level because they seem too small and too slow. Fast-forward a season, add in a growth spurt and a neversay-die attitude, and suddenly you understand that maybe the coach saw something you didn’t. That’s why if you stop in to see a few of the games at the Cornwall Minor Hockey Association Winterfest Bantam/Midget Rep “B” Tournament, you should pay attention because you never know where these players will be one year from now.

The Minor Midget “B” Reps Are Playoff Ready By Erynn Henry
he minor midget “B” rep hockey team is a part of the Upper Canada Minor Hockey League (UCMHL) and Cornwall Minor Hockey Association (CMHA). The playoffs for the league start February 3, 2014, and with practices an hour and half to two hours long, once or twice a week, and a constant training regimen that keeps this team on top of their game, they are no doubt up for the challenges that they may face as the season draws to a close. Chris Matte is the team’s head coach. He has been proudly coaching for roughly eight years and it’s something he really enjoys. “The boys are a great group of kids,” says Matte, “and they work hard and they
are having fun this year. They take it seriously, which makes it fun to coach when the boys are all committed to it and they buy into what the coaching staff has to say, so it’s just really fun for the coaching staff. They make it fun.” Working along side Matte is Assistant Coach Ron Turgeon and Assistant Coach Marc-Andre Guibord who are also both a big part of the team’s success and efforts during games as well as practices so far this season.
Michael Brie, who plays centre, is the captain of the minor midget “B” team. He says, that as a captain he has to try and help his teammates stay positive. “It is my job to lead the team and try to encourage them and not let

them get down on themselves,” says Brie. He must be doing an excellent job, of it because the team is currently second place in their division with twelve wins, seven losses, and three ties. “We just need to make sure we play good and show up to the games ready to play our style of hockey.” If they do that during the upcoming bantam/midget tournament, they should do very well. Working along side Brie is rightwinger J.P. Davidson who has been involved in the sport since he was roughly four years old. “The team has good chemistry,” says Davidson, and he also feels they are ready to win the playoffs this season. Left wing player Nathaniel Matte agrees that
because of the chemistry the group shares with each other as well as their coaches, they should win ﬁrst overall this season. Head Coach Chris Matte feels that the key to winning is to keep reminding the boys to play their style of hockey, and the key to coaching is to keep them communicating with each other on the bench and on the ice. “We are coaches, we can’t do it for them,” says Matte. “All we can do is tell them what to do and they have to go out there on the ice and do it for us.” Matte believes they are ready this year and that it is their turn to take home the trophy. Doing well at their home tournament would just be icing on the cake.

There will be a lot of memories like that created this year at the 2014 version of the Cornwall tournament, which is being held at the Benson Centre from January 30th until February 2rd. This is the 52st year of the tournament and their third at the Benson Center. Fifty-six teams have registered: 24 in the bantam division, 18 minor midget and 14 major midget teams. Having 14 teams in the major midget division is particularly nice since this season many associations seemed to have difﬁculty attracting enough interest to ice teams at that level. This year, in addition to the Cornwall teams, teams representing the Montreal area (Lakeshore, West Island and
Dollard des Ormeaux), New York State, (Plattsburgh and Louisville), Ottawa (Ottawa Sting, Ottawa West, GloucesterOrleans, Cumberland), Ottawa Valley (Deep River, Pembroke, Arnprior, Valley Storm, Renfrew, Muskrat, Petawawa), and eastern Ontario (RWC, MetcalfeRussell, Leitrim, Kemptville, Athens, Perth, Brockville, Alexandria, Char-Lan, South Stormont, South Grenville, South Dundas, North Dundas) will be participating. Each team has a three-game guarantee in the round-robin portion of the tournament with winning teams moving on to the semi-ﬁnals and ﬁnals. The ﬁnal championship game in all divisions takes place on Sunday, Feb. 2. Organizing a tournament of
this magnitude is a massive undertaking, and Debbie Caskenette, tournament chair, and assorted other volunteers have been working hard, some since the summer months to make sure it is a success. Teams start shopping early for tournaments to go to and Cornwall is lucky enough to draw lot of interest due to its size, quality of the competition and the variety of the teams involved. Having a facility like the Benson Center is huge draw as well. Another point of interest is that all the talent isn’t on the ice either. It isn’t unusual to see former pro players playing the role of coach or parent. Timing is also important. With the regular season winding down, some teams use this tournament to prepare for the playoffs and
some use it as a last minute way to help build team chemistry. Anyone who plays sports does so, to some degree, hoping that they will taste victory. Some tournaments you attend seem, intentionally or not, as if they were created for two or three teams, with all the others simply buying a chance to play against “the best.” That is deﬁnitely not the way things are organized at the Winterfest tournament, and as mentioned above, a little bit of luck, combined with a complete team effort at just the right time can go a long way. What ever your motivation, the Cornwall Minor Hockey Association Winterfest Bantam/ Midget Rep “B” Tournament is a great way to ﬁnish off January and jump into February. Besides, the kids really enjoy playing in front of a big crowd!
Happy New Year and may only the best come to you in 2014.
With the World Juniors over and no medals to show for a fantastic effort (I think the boys played excellent), the next event up is the Olympics. What a way to begin 2014. During the WJC games there was this public service announcement that the Canadian Hockey League provides the majority of players for the Hockey Canada Team. I believe it is somewhat misleading. Truth is, many of the players on the European teams play on CHL teams as well and the results have shown in the last number of events. I recall my presence sometime back at meetings where decisions were made insisting that we aid with the development and growth of the game across the planet. Canada, in its usual kind and polite way said “We can’t just keep pounding the competition, lets help them improve, become better.” Well folks we did as Canadians always do, we give them our best and with no thanks they took the gold as well. I only have one question regarding the makeup of Team Canada: What was a 16 year-old doing with a group of 19 year-old players when he could have better represented Canada with his talents in Sydney Nova Scotia at the World Under 17 Tournament? Since the last Olympics there has been talk of removing Womens hockey as an event. Again, the situation is that only a couple of teams are competitive. I know that the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association have reached out to the world in an attempt to assist other female organizations to grow their program. Of course we should be proud that Canadians come forward without any selﬁsh motives, only the love for our game. This morning I sit here with TSN, for the last two hours listening to all the speculation as to who will be chosen to represent Canada at the Sochi 2014 Olympics. Many combinations, names and reasons have been produced but the ﬁnal results will come from the words spoken by Mr. Yzerman. This list will be reviewed some time before the end of January by the Canadian Olympics committee, so changes will happen, hopefully only as a result of injuries. Will they make the correct choices? I suspect that the debate will continue right up to the drop of the game puck on February 13th, and carrying on until well after the games have completed and the hardware is handed out.

Record Numbers For Snowshoe Race Submitted Article
ummerstown – In spite of the inclement weather forecast, the rain held off long enough for the 2nd annual Summerstown Forest Dion Snowshoe Race to be held on Saturday, January 11 under cloudy but rainless skies.

Canadians Finish Strong in Florida Endurance Race By Jentry van Baal
he North American Endurance Team Challenge may have taken its toll on competitors this year, but it was nothing Team Canada couldn’t conquer together. The 160km race held in Florida in December 2013 attracted 70 horse and rider combinations from all across Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Only 40 combinations ﬁnished the event. Of the four Canadian teams, seven of the ﬁfteen riders came out on top. For Berwick’s Dessia Miller, the event was nothing either of her horses couldn’t handle. Finishing 28th overall in just under eleven hours, Miller and her Arabian stallion, Cognac Amberfyre, ﬁnished fourth of the Canadian contingent, with her second horse Amber Kiera, ridden by Stephanie McLeod, completing the event in thirteen hours and nine minutes. The ﬁrst Canadian to ﬁnish was Robert Gielen of Flesherton, Ontario, and his horse F.C. Galaxy, who broke the top ten ﬁnishers with a sixth place ﬁnish overall. “We weren’t there to race, we
were there to get a strong ﬁnish,” Miller explained, clearly pleased with her outcome. Despite many regular obstacles present on endurance rides, the main challenge that presented itself was the unique sandy footing that Florida is known for. “It’s quite deep and loose, nearly six inches in depth and it gets turned up as each of the horses goes through,” she added. “My horse’s best gait is canter, so 95 per cent of this was done at a canter because of the footing, the sand is so hard to trot or walk in. He relaxed into it and didn’t have any particular issues.” Miller was quick to pass on the praise to her fellow Canadians. “We had a great team,” she added appreciatively. “Both East and Western Canadian teams really came together, our team vets were amazing, and our support from the overall crewing was a big deal.” With a well-deserved break following a successful 2013 season and a recent qualiﬁcation to the World Equestrian Games in France this August, there is no doubt that Miller, and the remainder of the Canadian team, will be back this year and stronger than ever.
Hockey Canada recently announced the players selected to represent Canada as members of the men’s hockey team at the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. As you might expect, not everyone is happy, and almost everyone can think of a player that they believe should have made the team, while at the same time scratching their head over some of the other selections. What say you? Are there any players that you believe without question should have been on the team and were not selected? As well, are there any that did make the cut, but whom you think should have been left at home? Terry Tinkess
Canadian Press Correspondent
Being the general manager of the Canadian men’s Olympic hockey team is a thankless task unless you win gold and Steve Yzerman is welcome to it. Also being an NHL GM has to make it even more difﬁcult, particularly when players like Martin St. Louis, who didn’t make the cut, go out and score four goals in a game, just because he can. You could argue till the 2018 Olympics about who should and shouldn’t be on the team and really none of the opinions would be wrong. We have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to worldclass players and for some players that means they don’t make the team. For many, it’s the ﬁrst time in their life that they have had to
experience that feeling. For me, St. Louis would have been a good choice and I think that Logan Couture would have brought something as well. Not quite as simple is the thought of who shouldn’t have made it. Rick Nash, perhaps, since the injuries seem to be taking their toll on him, and maybe Mike Smith as the third goaltender, but even he has the ability to stand on his head from time-to-time. Better you than me Steve! Jim Riddell

Choosing the group of players that would best represent our country in Sochi was not a simple task. The choices made were debated over several months and ﬁnalized just before making the announcement. The Team Canada management group led by Steve Yzerman brought back eleven players from their gold medal winning team of 2010. I wouldn’t say that there were any obvious omissions, but thought that perhaps Tyler Seguin or Taylor Hall, both putting up points this season, would be a ﬁt on the larger ice surface. Making the proper choices may not have been easy, but with the number of top quality NHL players available to the selection committee, Yzerman and Co. could put together an Olympic “B” team capable of bringing gold back to Canada.
The debate that starts a year before an Olympics and ends only after a gold medal, is Team Canada’s Men’s Hockey Team. Knowing ﬁrsthand the anxiousness coaches go through at tryouts, I cannot imagine the stress that Steve Yzerman and his staff go through in determining the direction they want the team to go and then in picking 25 players to form the team that will represent our country. Just like everyone else, here are the changes I would have made, had I been in the selection room: 1. Brent Seabrooke instead of Dan Hamhuis - Hamhuis is the better skater but Seabrooke is clutch in Minor Hockey Coach big moments and has a veteran leadership status for Vancouver 2010 and 2 Stanley Cups. 2. Martin St. Louis instead of Jeff Carter - nobody has the heart and desire that St. Louis has and has proved his scoring and overall skill level again and again whereas I feel that Carter needs good players around him to excel but he also needs time to adjust to new players as seen in his ﬁrst years at Philadelphia, Columbus and LA and there just isn’t time in this tournament for that. 3. Jordan Eberle for Patrick Marleau - Marleau is the veteran and can skate well, but he is a more straight forward player whereas Eberle has creativity beyond belief and on the big ice surface he would be able to create so many opportunities and, oh yeah, has scored a couple of clutch goals for Canada. I am very happy for Jamie Benn, he deserves it even though nobody sees him play and too bad Logan Couture got injured just before the announcement. Robert Walker

What’s Your Type Of Winter Fitness? By Erynn Henry
t. Lawrence College-Cornwall (SLC) has just released their ﬁtness schedule for the winter semester. The program is available to students and faculty, as well as community members looking for a great way to stay healthy or to help them feel swimsuit ready for the hot months yet to come.
The college feels that it is a top priority for them to offer these programs as a means of providing them with the opportunity to help keep a fresh mind and a healthy lifestyle. Jacquie Cartwright athletics and student life ofﬁcer, as well as the ﬁtness instructors, Jordan Ann Kevan de Haan, and Christina Collard are the minds behind the variety of programs chosen. They
saw a really great opportunity to provide a beneﬁt to the students. “I think wellness is really important and it is becoming increasingly more important within colleges and universities speciﬁcally to provide programs such as these,” says Cartwright. “It ties in really well with the Health 101 (an interactive digital health and wellness magazine) Continued on page 13

be a crime, but claiming that they were justiﬁable under the circumstances. If you participated in the initiation or escalation of the situation, you stand a good chance of being considered a participant, and not a victim of violence. Generally we are allowed to use a reasonable amount of force to defend ourselves. Reasonable also means stopping as soon as the assailant is no longer a threat. Failure to do so could result in charges. You should not let the fear of legal repercussion’s keep you from defending yourself, but having a basic understanding of what you are legally allowed, can help you make the proper choices if that need ever arises. In the next issue of Sports Energy we will look at a practical self defense system using a lower level of force. Pressure point systems, which are used by many police forces, provide the ofﬁcer with the skills to be effective without using excessive force. KARATE QUOTE – Self –defense is mostly about what you don’t do.

Whether your type of ﬁtness is fast paced or slower paced, there is something out there for everyone to look into and try out. Cartwright is proud of the services the college has to offer. “We are excited to be offering these programs. This is probably the largest selection that we’ve offered and it’s been done now for three years. We keep growing it every year as demand keeps rising.

Correy Latour - Director of Player development Cornwall minor Hockey
As the hockey season ends your body needs some time to recuperate and then back to the grind as they say. I recommend to young players to play another sport and stay active. Agility drills (ladder, cones, stop and goes, sprints ) also good to work your balance( balance board while dribbling a tennis ball with your stick)and have quick feet. As time goes by and you mature you can incorporate ( high reps for cardio) – no matter what you do you must stay active, eat right, keep up your energy level up and stretch. Cardio activity is a must in the off season. Hope this helps you in the off season in achieving your goals for next season.

Memories of Cornwall Bantam-Midget Tournament: Danny Aikman
(1957-1992) to score more than 30 goals in a season.
By Diane Hunter
anny Aikman, Deputy Chief of the Cornwall Community Police Service has fond memories of the Cornwall Bantam-Midget Hockey Tournament.
“I had the good fortune of being most valuable goaltender in the bantam league,” said Aikman. “It was a big deal back in the day.” Aikman remembered a few other names like Jerry Ingram and Doug Kelly. “There were a lot of great players,” said Aikman. “We had great success in our times.”
“I was involved in bantam hockey in 1974,” said Aikman. “I played hockey from the time I could walk until well into my thirties.” The Cornwall Bantam-Midget Hockey Tournament is one of the longest running hockey tournaments in Eastern Ontario attracting teams from all over Ontario, Quebec, and the U.S.
“It’s a fond memory from 1974,” Aikman reminisced. “I haven’t been involved in hockey for about 15 years. It’s a fond memory, but I really couldn’t fathom putting on pads and skates again.” Aikman said he still enjoys watching hockey and is a fan of the Ottawa Senators, but his days of playing are over. “I just got so tired of carrying a hockey bag,” said Aikman. “The older I got the heavier the bag got. I am more of a fan now. I can’t see myself playing again.”
“The Bantam tournament was something back in the day,” recalled Aikman. “It was the one premier bantam tournaments around.” Now in it’s 52nd year, the tournament hosts more than 60 teams with more than 1,500 players. “It was the one place to showcase bantam hockey at the time,” said Aikman. “There were elite teams from Montreal to the U.S.” Aikman, now more of a fan than a player, recollected how much fun playing hockey was. “We had the good fortune of playing on a very
good hockey team,” recalled Aikman of himself and Mike Piquette. “Some went on like our allstar player Dave Ezard.” Ezard was inducted into the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame in 2000, and was the only defenseman in Royals history
The Bantam-Midget tournament will be held from January 30 to February 2 at the Benson Centre and the Civic Complex. For more information, visit: www.cornwallminorhockey.com

forward to the competitive challenge. Jacob Morris is one of the players who has played in the tournament before. “Normally its bigger teams that come to our tournament,” he says, “so you learn to play hard, more defensively. Hopefully we win a home tournament though.”
After weeks of competitive matches and strengthening his skills at the bantam level, Morris intends to continue his hockey career in the future, “I’ll probably try out for “AA” next year, we’ll see how that goes.”

ornwall will be the host city for a number of minor hockey teams at the end of the month, as the 52nd Bantam/Midget Tournament returns for a funﬁlled weekend both on and off the ice. Teams from the Montreal area, Ottawa Valley, Ottawa, New York State and Eastern Ontario will be coming to compete in this well-respected tournament. One of three local teams, the Cornwall Bantam “B” Colts, coached by long-time hockey coach Al Savard will
be doing their best to skate away with a championship trophy. “We’re excited about it,” said Savard. While they think they are up to the challenge, Savard knows his team will be facing an uphill battle, particularly when competing against teams from Ottawa, “What happens when you go to the Ottawa district is you’ve got a major bantam and a minor bantam, and for us in Cornwall they’re combined together, so more than half of my players are minors.” Despite this disadvantage, many of Savard’s players still ﬁnd the tournaments enjoyable and look
Another returning player, Connor Maynard, says he likes to see how he, and his team compare against teams from other areas. He enjoys “the competitiveness, against all the other teams, from Ottawa and other places, just seeing how we compare against them. We have to play against just major teams, it’ll be a little bit of a challenge but that should make it fun.” Maynard hopes to see his hockey career continue onto the junior level. The nice thing about a tournament like this is that if you go out and play hard, and get the occasional lucky “bounce,” you’ve got as much chance to win as the next team. The best thing about sports, especially as the minor level, is that the outcome is never guaranteed. You can have an undefeated regular season and then lose two straight games and be out of the playoffs. Or, you could build a fairy tale ending, win four games in a row and be a champion. There’s probably not one player on any team that hasn’t had that dream. They’ll all get the chance to turn dreams into reality beginning on Thursday, January 30.

Major Midget “B” Colts Looking to Impress By Terry Tinkess
hen you are a minor hockey player, one of the things you look forward to most is the chance to play in tournaments. There is the excitement of packing everything up and heading out to play teams you may never have seen before, and the chance to play in rinks that are unfamiliar (every concession stand is different, don’t you know!) There is also the allure of staying in a hotel and getting to hang out with your teammates while parents tend to entertain themselves. But is it as much fun when you’re the home team, as all the Cornwall teams in the 52nd Cornwall Bantam and Midget “B” Rep tournament will be when they face off later this month? Does a “home” tournament matter as much as a chance to get out of town? You bet it does, even more so when you’re in your last year of minor hockey. Nick Doherty, 17, is a goaltender on the major midget “B” team and he is in his ﬁnal year of midget hockey, so doing well in the tournament is particularly important. “It’s my last year of minor hockey and I’d really like to bring home a championship with the team. We’ve had a tough season, we’ve had a couple rough patches. I hope we push through it and bring home a win. Doherty isn’t sure what the future holds for him. He’d like to play NCAA or even Canadian university hockey, and this tournament could be a chance for someone to take notice of him. Johnny King, 16, is also in his ﬁnal year of midget hockey and
he likes the idea of playing in front of the home crowd. “We’ve got our friends and home support here, it would be nice to win at home.”
Like many of the players in “B” level hockey, he’s also not sure where, or if hockey will ﬁt in his future. “I’ll see if anything comes up, but I’m not expecting anything too major,” says King. Alex Primeau, 17, sees the tournament as a chance to put the team, and themselves on display. “It means a lot, since it’s a chance to show our town who we are what we can do,” says Primeau. He hopes to ﬁnd a spot with a junior team next season after his minor hockey days are done. Mike Piquette is the coach of the major midget “B” team, and while the team hasn’t won as much as they would like, he says he has really enjoyed the season “It’s probably the biggest tournament of the year for us,” says Piquette. “It’s a chance to play in front of friends and family, and there is great competition throughout. There are a lot of great teams involved and it’s longstanding. We’re in our 52nd year and the kids really get up for it.” When asked what he thinks his team’s chances in the tournament are, he tends to keep his cards close to his chest. “Our team is the type of team that if everyone comes out to work, we’re very hard to beat,” says Piquette. “We’ve got to have the effort from all seventeen kids though, and when we get that, we’re very competitive.” The Winterfest Bantam and Midget “B” Rep tournament takes place from January 30-February 2, 2014 with games at both the Benson Centre and the Cornwall Civic Complex.

MURPHY’S SPORTS LAW By David Murphy 2014 will be a signiﬁcant year in the annals of Cornwall sports. The 50th Benson Cornwall Lions Club Sports Awards Dinner will take place in May with the highlight being the handing of the Jacques Richard Trophy to the area’s top sports personality. From early winners like Doug Carpenter, Bob Charlebois and Walt MacDonald to recent recipients Tony Luis, Jenna Flannigan and Christina Julien, the winner is one of the best-kept secrets in local sports. Fortynine names are emblazoned on the original trophy and subsequent plaque and it’ll fun to see who the 50th winner will be. Other highlights from the evening include the RBC $1,000 bursary. While this award is about a decade old, it’s signiﬁcance has grown to sit right next to the Jacques Richard Trophy as a highlight of the evening as it’s awarded to a junior aged athlete ready to continue post-secondary education and has showcased a combination of top level athleticism with academic excellence. Rounding out the trifecta of top-end awards is the Benson Friends of the Roundtable, which
is in recognition of a lifetime of achievement in the Cornwall sports community. Mark Wednesday, May 14th at the Civic Complex on your calendar, it’s sure to a night to remember. And another thing…last month’s column took a look back at 2013 and I was remise to inadvertently omit the handful of local youth bowlers who showcased what Cornwall bowlers are all about on the national stage. The Bantam girls team won its second straight gold medal at the Youth Bowling Council National Championship in Vancouver last spring. Alyssa MacGillivray, Shayla Lascelle, Savannah Ingola and Chloe Russell will forever carry the National Champions tag. For eight-year-old MacGillivray and nine-year-old Lascelle it was their second straight title. Nine-year-old Sophia Dorie took home the gold in the bantam girls singles tournament thanks to a 205 average. Thomas Flaro collected Silver medal for his efforts in the junior boys singles competition. Well-deserved congratulations to the young bowlers who proved that Cornwall remains a great sports community. A friendly reminder that the deadline for nominations for potential inductees into the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame, Class of 2014 is February 28th. You can check out www. cornwallsportshalloffame .com or e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details. The CSHOF Class of 2014 will be announced in late March. The dinner is scheduled for Saturday, August 16th at the Civic Complex.

Out on the Ice: Ron Giroux on Ice Fishing By Terry Tinkess
of stories. There’s all kinds of people you can talk to out there.”
any people know Ron Giroux as the Cornwall Minor Hockey Association (CMHA) equipment manager. He can be found almost every day of the hockey season keeping the equipment in good working order and offering a “ﬁx” when things don’t work the way they are supposed to.
“Dress warm,” he says, “because it can get cold out there. Dressing in layers works well for most type of outdoor winter activities and ice ﬁshing is no exception. If it gets too warm, you can always shed a layer or two, but if you don’t have enough you can get cold, and fast.
The best advise Giroux has for someone thinking about taking up ice ﬁshing is to remember it is winter, you are out on the ice and it can get chilly.
What most people don’t know, however, is what he likes to do when he is away from the rink. To ﬁnd out, all you have to do is look to the river because Giroux is an avid ﬁsherman regardless of the season. Giroux says that ﬁshing has been a part of his life for almost as long as he can remember. “I’ve been ﬁshing for at least ﬁfty years,” says Giroux. “My mother and father ﬁshed all the time and I went with them. We were just kids, so instead of getting us babysat, they took us ﬁshing.” When it comes to the winter variety, out on the ice, Giroux says he has been doing that for about thirty years. He prefers ﬁshing at Hoople Creek, between Long Sault and Ingleside, but he has ﬁshed at many different locations as well. “I have ﬁshed at Lancaster, Summerstown, Glen Walter, at the church, in Cornwall at the Air Force Wing, but I prefer Hoople. Hoople is a nice place and the ﬁsh is good there.” There are differing opinions over what is the best ﬁsh at Hoople Creek, but Giroux has his opinion on the subject. “As far as I’m concerned, it’s perch,” says Giroux, “but if you go ask some other guys, they’ll tell you it’s walleye. I’m a perch ﬁsherman. While the cold weather we’ve had this year has made for a sturdy sheet of ice, it has apparently had an effect on the ﬁsh as well. “It seems to have slowed them down,” says Giroux. “Before we had no problem; when the ice ﬁrst got on there, for about the ﬁrst three weeks you could go anywhere and catch them. Now you have to look for them and you really have to ﬁsh. You can’t just throw anything at them, you have to really ﬁsh.” As far as lures go, Giroux says he likes the type referred to as “bugs.” “I usually go with the yellow and red,” he says. While he says that ﬁshing of any kind is relaxing, Giroux says the thing he likes best about ice ﬁshing is the way you get to talk with everybody. “There’s always somebody out there, and there’s all kinds

I hope you enjoy # 15.
It’s that time of year again with the puck about to drop on the 52nd edition of the Cornwall Allstate / CMHA Bantam Midget Hockey Tournament. This tournament has, over the years provided me with many special memories, ﬁrst as a participant playing for the local Cornwall bantam and midget Teams and later as a coach, ﬁrst with Seaway Valley “AA” bantam and midget teams (I believe we won the “AA” major bantam Title in 1992) and more recently with both bantam and midget “B” teams from Cornwall. I have also had the pleasure of working as a member of the CMHA executive the past six years. A tip of the hat to Brian and Debbie Caskenette who spend so much time and energy on this tournament and minor hockey as well. Many people have asked me why I get involved now that my kids are older and out of hockey. My response has been simple: minor hockey gave me so many fond memories growing up and my parents have always told me I should give something back to the community and volunteer at something. My ﬁrst and last coach in minor hockey was Larry Gabri. Larry was my coach in atom house league and then many years later with the midget travelling team. After putting up with me, Larry spent many successful years as a volunteer coach and organizer in Cornwall and area and is a member of The Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame. I see Larry and his wife Sheila on numerous occasions and always enjoy a good visit with them. Other coaches I had in my youth included Bert Kelly, a very keen hockey person, and Ed Hills, a coach who was also a very good salesman. I always enjoyed the conversations I had with Mr. Hills and in the real world I drifted into sales as a career. I often wonder if those conversations with Mr. Hills had something to do with it. The one thing I have found is a player can learn something from every coach they encounter in their journey. I got away from hockey for many years until a friend,
Mike Groulx, asked me to help him coach the Seaway Valley “AA” midget team. Jumping in with both skates, (had to buy a new pair) I quickly became hooked on the game again. The next season, I put my name in to coach again and was offered the minor bantam “AA” position. Here I met many people who are still friends today. One person in particular was Don Derry, who‘s son Ryan was a goalie on the team. When the Cornwall Royals left town in 1992, Don purchased the Massena Americans Jr. “A” team and moved them to Cornwall. I was asked to become involved with the Jr. “A” Colts and a volunteer position soon became a full-time job in hockey. I could ﬁll an entire edition of Sports Energy with tales of the early Colts days. We had a great team of people involved, fantastic players, very cooperative team sponsors and unbelievable loyal fans, and as a group we probably had the most fun at a junior hockey game each week. It all felt like one big family. Does anyone remember Brian Ladas and Kenny “The Colt” McLaughlin squaring off at centre ice in Sumo wrestling suits? Or Bill Murphy and his “Hillbilly” band, I believe consisted of Don, Bill, Jacques Trottier and Richard Waldroff, sitting in the back of a pickup truck, bluegrass music blaring, driving around the ice? Joan Lawson and Bob Johnson, working in the ofﬁce? The Colt’s Clowns? Originally they were my bantam players who wanted to see the game and loved to entertain. I believe three of the original Colt’s clowns went on to play in the OHL. Let’s not forget the hockey, two championship teams, numerous NCAA scholarships, OHL graduates, NHL draft picks, the list is long. A big thank you to Don Derry for starting it all. We have shared and continue to share many laughs when we get together. While writing this, my thoughts also go to my wife Shirley and sons Jamie, Christopher and Patrick, who have always encouraged and supported my involvement in sports, even though they often took a back seat to scheduling conﬂicts. On behalf of the Cornwall major midget Colt’s I would like to welcome all the teams participating in our tournament and hope you enjoy your stay in our great city. We would also like to thank all the volunteers for their countless hours in making this tournament the event it is.
Until next month, Enjoy the Energy. Mike Piquette

Nutrition for Better Sport Performance By Jason Christoff
lthough the mass media will try to convince you that better performance comes in a powder or colourful sugary drink, Mother Nature has everything you’ll need to be a better athlete. If you dream about competing at the pro level, better health will be your foundation both mentally and physically. The biggest impact on your performance will be sleep. Recuperation is paramount to improved strength, endurance and agility. During high intensity sports, extreme amounts of micro traumas are inﬂicted on muscular systems and certain metabolic pathways. Our muscles and pathways can indeed improve and become stronger but only with proper rest and recuperation. Excess exercise can and will break down the body if enough rest is not placed in between sporting sessions. When a person pushes their body beyond their body’s ability to recover, decreases in performance will occur and the chance of injury increases exponentially. Proper down time is important for all athletes, at every level. Sleep habits are crucial for optimal repair from sports based muscular trauma. Getting to bed by 10:30 is key, as the body’s hormonal repair systems are synced to the cycles of the sun. When the sun goes down the body’s energy production system starts to decline and the body’s repair systems start
to come on line. Getting to bed by 10:30 at the latest can aid in giving the body what it needs to repair and be ready for the next day of competition. Getting to bed a little earlier can increase the effect. Stretching, yoga and additional relaxation methods before bed can further increase this repair effect.
medical doctor rarely goes over a patient’s food intake so patients (and anyone watching…including a child) may start to get the impression that food choices don’t really impact health too much. Unfortunately the exact opposite is true. Food choices will make or break any athlete’s long-term success, with very few exceptions. Many athletes can ride the wave of youth and see little impact of a bad diet on their performance but a long successful career will ride more on how a person treats their body than on any other factor. Want to break some records? That starts in the grocery store’s real food sections.
For optimal repair the athlete should avoid TV, computer screens etc as any bright artiﬁcial light source after sundown triggers the body to believe the sun is still up and with that it would interfere with the body’s repair mechanisms, which are only active when the sun is down. Basically bright lights turn off the body’s repair mechanisms. Having a bed time ritual that includes progressive Today it’s common for a person to have relaxation prior to sleep will assure you are the fastest and strongest athlete over the the best equipment and pick up a hot dog, chip and fry on the way to the rink or on long run. the way out.

The Future Design of Hockey Skates Dr. Joel Leger BSc(Hons), DipAc, DC Chiropractor & Owner
ockey is a game that requires the ability to optimally perform a variety of skills: players must stop and start, pivot, skate forwards and backwards, do crossover turns forwards and backwards, and at times need a strong base of support when battling in front of the net or in corners against opponents. Hockey skate manufacturers have improved the stability, reduced the weight and have added protection and comfort to the modern hockey skate; however, they have done little to improve the design of the hockey skate. What if the hockey skate was less like a rigid ski boot and more like a ﬂexible running shoe?
In October of 2012, Lachaine et al released a study that examines the different body joint kinetics and kinematics (the study of motion and its causes) while wearing a standard hockey skate and while wearing a modiﬁed hockey skate. The modiﬁed hockey skate has an altered tendon guard (much looser than a regular skate) and eyelets, where the laces go in, to allow more ankle movement during skating (Figure 1). What were the results? Participants using the modiﬁed hockey skate demonstrated a statistically signiﬁcant increase in their total range of motion at

the ankle. The extra degrees of ankle motion during propulsion could be beneﬁcial to delay fatigue throughout the course of a game as a higher effective range of motion would allow a more optimal force–length relationship of the muscles involved. Increased peak forces during inside crossovers, outside crossovers, and sprinting were also noted. More freedom of motion at the ankle equaled greater overall force production during skating.

Remembering Bantam Hockey in Cornwall: Rick McCullough By Diane Hunter
the restaurant and ofﬁce in another. We were there for two nights,” McCullough recalled. “Our parents were having supper in the dining room and a ﬁre broke out in the kitchen. The whole place burnt down. We were in our rooms watching the ﬁre. Now I am the ﬁre chief. Some of our parents left the dining room without their winter coats. That’s how fast the ﬁre spread. Everybody got out, but it burnt down to the ground. Of course the hockey team didn’t get much sleep and we didn’t perform as well next day. Those are the things that stick out for me for bantam.”
ick McCullough, Cornwall Fire Chief remembers playing bantam hockey in Cornwall like it was yesterday. “We won our bantam tournament in 1974,” said McCullough. “We won in our second year. We lost our ﬁrst year in the semiﬁnals. Our midget team won at that time. It was called the Wrigley tournament then.” McCullough said he grew up playing hockey with brothers Brian and Lloyd. “We were a hockey family,” said McCullough. “My brother Brian played with the Royals, Lloyd played with the Royals too. In 1969, Lloyd played with the Junior Canadians.” McCullough said his team was very busy that year, playing close to 110 games that season. “Our coach got us into a tournament in St. Louis, Missouri,” said McCullough. The team stopped in Kitchener and traveled to Missouri together with a team from Kitchener. St. Louis, Chicago, and Minnesota all had teams in the line up. “At the end of the ﬁnals, it was Cornwall and Kitchener. I think we lost with one goal. We had to go home with the winning team on the same bus.” McCullough
McCullough laughed as he recalled stories of his childhood and the game that he loved. “We were one of the favorite teams to win the Canadian Championship in 1976. We ended up playing Current Fire Chief Rick McCullough remembers playing bantam hockey Quebec. We won 3-0. You Submitted photo. always remember the ones in Cornwall. that you won.

The “POWERPLAY” Family Night Out
Question: Why does your family deserve a night out? Answered by: Josh and Ethan Da Silva
It’s not so much that our family deserves a night out, but our Mom sure does. She is always there to bring us to and from practices and games both in Cornwall and Ottawa. She is there on the sideline cheering us on. This past fall football season our Mom was at the field 5 out of 7 days. We would really like to treat our Mom to a night out.
To have your family selected for a night out send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, attn: Wendys Family night out. Winners are selected at random.

SHINES THE SPOTLIGHT ON OUR MEMBERS
Marathon Runner Patrick Clarke Is Determined To Rise To New Heights By Andrea Grondin
atrick Clarke is gearing up to reach new heights throughout the marathon season this year. He having started his marathon competitions in 2001 with the Ottawa Marathon, running alongside friends, and he hasn’t stopped running since. In 2004 Clarke founded the Cornwall Multi Sports Club (CMSC) with some help from friends. By 2005 the club had garnered 31 members. The club continued to grow and by 2006 the club had attracted 129 members. Currently, they host more than 350 members and continue to grow. Clarke states the club was started as a means to have a group of runners get together and train stating, however that “not everyone is an elite runner. There are people at all different levels that join and ﬁnd their own stride within the club. The CMSC is a great place to get out and have fun, meet new people and create new memories,” says Clarke. One memory that Patrick recalls as one of his favourites is a marathon called the Jay Peak Challenge. The marathon took place at Jay Peak Vermont and consisted of running up and down the mountain and making it to checkpoints before time ran out while making your way through various obstacles such as mud, crawling through a culvert, crossing
him in the top 100 racers out of 400. Having raced over twenty marathons, six of which were Ultra’s covering over 50K or more, Patrick Clarke says he cannot wait for the next challenge. Throughout the year Clarke anticipates to run in the 125K Rocky Mountain Marathon, the Vermont 100M marathon and ﬁnally the Saranac Lake seven mountain 52K marathon. All of these will be physically demanding, to say the least. The challenges he has set for himself could, however be derailed by the hip injury he has been living with for the past few years. Still, he is determined to enter the race. “I have to wait and see if I can participate this year, if not there is always the next year. By then I’m sure I’ll compete.” In the meantime, he is relaxing, training lightly and working on community projects. There is always something you can do to prepare for what lies ahead. Patrick Clarke’s involvement within the community has always been something of note, now working alongside the Cornwall Rotary Club to get an innovative proposition for Cornwall’s waterfront area near Patrick Clarke pictured during the Ottawa Marathon in May 2004. Lamoureux Park. The project of an rivers with rope, swamps with leeches previous days. Clarke ﬁnished this outdoor gym is getting off the ground, and sand pits, all of which had been memorable race with a time of eight so he has plenty to keep him occupied worsened by inclement weather in minutes, ten seconds, which placed until the marathons start.
