ere we go again: another fall season will soon be upon us and somewhere in the neighbourhood of 30,000 children will be lacing up the blades to play our national sport. Despite the labour issues at the NHL level, it has been business as usual within the ODMHA and the ODHA. And this year, we’re celebrating the anniversaries of two of the greatest moments in hockey history.
Both the 1987 Canada Cup, featuring the iconic Gretzky-to-Lemieux goal in the dying seconds of game three, and the national treasure that is the memory of the Summit Series — including Paul Henderson’s series winner in game eight — are being celebrated simultaneously this September. If you are too young for one or both of these


incredible moments in time, do a bit of research. There is a lot of video available; these are two of the more defining moments in Canadian history.
 For our regular readers, welcome to the new and improved Centre Ice!
After a decade of being published by Anderson Publishing under the guidance of Cliff Anderson and Jayne Rooney, I’m extremely happy and proud to report that Centre Ice will now be

We have a new look but the same constant, consistent minor hockey coverage. Send us your stories, results and photos; we will endeavour to get in as many as we can.

published by Great River Media, a company that is led in part by well-known media personality Mark Sutcliffe. We have a new look but the same constant, consistent minor hockey coverage. Send us your stories, results and photos; we will endeavour to get in as many as we can. Nothing changes in that regard. I’d like to thank Cliff and Jayne for their support of Centre Ice for the past decade and also all of the dedicated writers and contributors. My son was in IP when I started with what was then called Goal Post. He’s now entering his first year of Major Midget. We’re still here and I love it because minor

hockey, as is evident with the Bell Capital Cup, is a driving thread through the fabric of thousands of lives in Ottawa and the Valley and millions nationwide. Please continue to email any comments and thoughts; I welcome them all and I answer them all.
 We left off last year with the thoughts of perhaps hosting our own coaching symposium on body contact in minor hockey. I did not get the chance to pursue that during the summer but I am committed to doing this in the future with hockey people, not just doctors or others who are not involved in

minor hockey.
With a son still playing and having coached 10 years straight, I’m very much aware of the ongoing concussion issues. However, it’s my contention that some of what I regard as the overprotection of our children is in fact leading to some of our concussion issues. It’s a great debate and I intend to continue it, not only on our pages here but  hopefully in a public forum at some point.  Enjoy the start to your season, support our young boys and girls, keep your stick on the ice. —  Liam Maguire liam@greatriver.ca 11 11

House leagues continue to move to no body checking


Minor hockey’s Lanark Carleton House League has removed body checking at the pee-wee level on a trial basis. This is in keeping with the national policy of no body checking at all ages below pee-wee. Lanark Carleton Minor Hockey League President Glenn Austin reiterated in a phone conversation that the move at the pee-wee house level is a pilot project. The official statement as it pertains to Lanark Carleton House League is that “For the 2012-13 season, LCMHL will implement non checking at Pee Wee House B level as a pilot project. At the end of the pilot, LCMHL will evaluate whether to proceed with further implementation at other levels, or proceed with offering a choice where requested by its membership.” This past January, the Nepean Minor Hockey Association – one of the larger associations in the ODMHA - banned body checking in all of their house leagues up through midget. – Liam Maguire

Kanata-based company, Impakt Protective has designed the Shockbox, a hockey impact alert sensor that will allow players to know when a hit is too hard. To date the sensor has been in development and the availability limited but it will now be to mass market in early October. The device worn on top of the helmet, provides an immediate visual alert, via wireless Bluetooth transmission up to 325ft away to your smartphone, that a player has experienced an at risk hit that may result in concussion. Intended as a tool for coaches, trainers and parents in the assessment of hits to the head, the device also allows for keeping a history of head impact data for a player. The company believes this will assist in the making of informed decisions for players who may be at risk of receiving a concussion and knowing when to pull a player from the game.

Ah, September.

The kids are back to school, summer memories are fresh, the smell of sunscreen lingers. For one Ottawa family, the bell doesn’t just signal back-to-school season but also the beginning of hockey season.









“The schedule is entered at least two weeks in advance” — MICHELLE CATTON For the uninitiated, hockey season begins well before the leaves turn and the snow falls. For the Catton family, September’s calendar is filled with conditioning sessions, power skating drills, exhibition games and tryouts. The annual sorting of thousands of boys and girls to the appropriate team in house league and competitive hockey is no easy task. More than 28,000 children and teens across the area stretching from Brockville to Hawkesbury and from Cornwall to Ottawa play organized hockey. That’s 1,700 teams, competitive and house league. At its peak 300 games per day are played in what Canadians identify as their national sport. The Catton family of Ottawa are a true “hockey family” – Mom, Michelle and Dad, Andrew, both play in a recreational co-ed league. Starting with their oldest, the Cattons and their children Nicholas (14), William (13), Hannah (11) and Matthew (9) – have been involved in organized hockey in Nepean for more than eight years. They have learned a few things along the way, and

are happy to share their tips and strategies, from keeping organized, to managing nutrition, homework and equipment advice.


Stay connected. Online calendars are a family’s best friend in this modern age. Co-ordinating schedules and activities keeps this family on track. “The schedule is entered at least two weeks in advance,” says Michelle. This helps cover any conflicts and provides an opportunity to arrange any carpooling for the kids. Make friends quickly. Parents are more involved than ever in their children’s sports. An ice-breaker event for the team in the form of a BBQ or get-together can help parents get to know each other and trade phone numbers for the season.

Dad is not a pack mule! Andrew learned quickly that carrying gear for more than one child was a good workout, but that four hockey bags would be a little much. They solved that by purchasing backpack-style hockey bags

for all four kids. “The bigger bags on wheels are great, but try fitting four of those in the back of our car!” comments Andrew. Even the youngest, Matthew, carries his own bag and stick, although now he’s a goalie, Mom or Dad sometimes help out with his extra gear.

Mom, where’s my stuff? Stashing gear in one area of the home, such as the garage or mudroom, is also strongly recommended. Hanging up sweaty skates and wet socks is the kids’ responsibility, as is making sure every thing goes back in the bag before practice. Players themselves, both parents have arrived to play a game to discover that growing boys Nick or Will have “borrowed” a glove or elbow pad when they couldn’t find their own! Uh-oh, I forgot my pants. Another time-saver is having the kids get partially dressed in their gear before they leave the house. This can save the trouble of rushing back home for a missing pair of gloves or pants. As well, it gives you a little extra travel time. Making sure that the hockey

bag actually makes it into the trunk of the car is good advice too.


What goes in, comes out. Keeping the kids hydrated and well-fed enables them to succeed on the ice. Michelle, who works from home, ensures the kitchen is stocked with fruit, home baking and protein-packed meals that are simple for the kids to reach for. Planning ahead, especially over the weekend, can help make dinnertime a cinch. Baked pastas, salads and fruit are usually served earlier in the afternoon and a small snack after practice keeps the kids fuelled and ready to go.

Protein Bars Michelle, who makes these often, shared her secret to avoiding packaged, too- sweet snacks.

The Catton Family (Recipe from The Eat Clean Diet for Family & Kids by Tosca Reno) Applesauce Spice Protein Bars (makes about 18 bars) Cook time: 20-25 min Ingredients : 1 cup whey or other protein powder 1/2 cup spelt flour 2 cups rolled oats (do not use instant) 1/2 cup oat bran 1/2 cup coarsely ground flax seed 1 tsp sea salt 1tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp allspice 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 1/4 tsp ground black pepper 1/4 cup apple butter  1/4 cup agave nectar 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce  1/4 cup safflower  oil 1 tbsp vanilla  Preparation : 1.  Preheat oven to 325F/163C. Put all dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix well.  20

2. Combine all wet ingredients together in another bowl until well blended.  3.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.   4.  Prepare a 13x9 metal pan.  5.  Place mixture into pan and press to smooth evenly.  6. Back in oven for 20-25 min. 


As you can imagine, with four growing kids, the pile of used equipment has grown over the years. Gear is passed from child to child as needed, with the occasional new purchase of skates or helmets. The helmet is essential in protecting your child from dangerous injury, so each child has their own until it requires replacement. Adjustable helmets are useful when kids are young. They should be replaced if any large dents or cracks appear, or if they are too tight. A family that plays together, stays together. Hockey was not always a way of life for the Catton family.

Andrew, who picked up the game 10 years ago, plays in a co-ed league Friday nights. Wife Michelle would book a babysitter to go watch and join the team for some post -game-get-togethers. Finally convinced four years ago to gear up and step on the ice, she hasn’t looked back. Recently, Nicholas and Will have joined in, making it a family affair. A large 40’ x 80’ outdoor rink in the winter, outfitted with boards, netting to catch errant pucks and halogen lights placed respectfully away from neighbours’ yards, serves as a welcome distraction after homework is done. All four children have honed their skills in the backyard, with then-twoyear-old Matthew strapping his own skates on to join his big brothers and sister. Dragging three kids to watch a sibling’s game or practice was not always a picnic for Michelle. She recalls lots of complaining, not to mention struggling with toddlers, snowsuits and

hockey sticks in the early days. Bringing activities or toys along helped pass the time for the younger ones. “We made up games as we got older,” says Nick. “As long as we had a ball, we could find our own fun.” “Hockey has brought us closer,” the kids say. They have a common bond that serves to help them teach and learn from each other. They are their biggest cheerleaders and sometimes harshest critics. “It helps that we all play,” explains Matthew. One last piece of advice that Andrew has for new hockey parents is for them to remember “to keep their perspective.” This game, this life, is a way for children to learn about teamwork, perseverance, community and sportsmanship. It’s a parent’s job to cheer them on, and sometimes cheer them up, but at the end of the game, “you need to leave it on the ice” and take your tired, exercised child home and do it all again another day.

Dale McCabe



hen Dale McCabe was sitting in the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre stands nine years ago, he wasn’t expecting anything more than to catch a minor hockey game. Instead, he was given an offer he couldn’t refuse. That afternoon he was asked to become the Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears trainer. McCabe is no stranger to hockey. Since his son, Nicholas, started playing hockey in 1992, McCabe was the trainer for his son’s team as he made his way through the ranks with the Smiths Falls Minor Hockey Association. From the novice to the midget level, McCabe witnessed his son and friends grow up in the hockey rink and he was happy to be a part of the action.

“You’re right down there where the excitement is and it’s nice to know the coaching staff trusts that I’m the expert and appreciates what I can bring. I am also just a cog in the wheel and everyone does their part to bring the team together.” — DALE MCCABE

“Some of my best memories come from the hockey rink,” he says. “Watching those young boys develop as they started to turn into young men was a lot fun.” When his son ended his hockey career in high school, McCabe’s time behind the bench ended as well. “There was something lacking in my hockey life,” he says. “I really enjoyed and missed it.” So when presented with the offer to come on board with the Junior A Bears in 2003, he jumped at it. Five days later, he found himself standing behind the Bears’ bench at the next home game. McCabe is the perfect fit as a hockey team’s trainer. Not only does he have a calm demeanour, he also works as a full-time paramedic for the Lanark County Ambulance Service, giving both players and coaching staff confidence in his assessment and treatment abilities. With a Level 2 trainer’s certificate under his belt,

McCabe has provided every service imaginable to his players, who range from 16 to 20 years of age. “Whether it’s assessing a player’s potential injury before a game or getting out on the ice after a big hit, I’ve seen it all,” he says, adding his work doesn’t necessarily always happen on the ice. Last year, McCabe had to use a defibrillator on a hockey fan in the stands during a Bears home game. The man had lost vitals, but McCabe’s quick work, along with others helping, brought him back to life. “You definitely have to expect the unexpected,” he says. Since joining the Junior A Bears,



he’s seen the team achieving many successes. He recalls the team making it to the CJHL finals in their 2008 season and witnessing three Bears players drafted to the NHL. Though he spends at least 10 hours a week in the rink volunteering his time with the Bears, McCabe says he’s the selfish one. “You’re right down there where the excitement is and it’s nice to know the coaching staff trusts that I’m the expert and appreciates what I can bring,” he says. “I am also just a cog in the wheel and everyone does their part to bring the team together.” Nearly a decade later, he has no plans to step off the bench.

DAVE MCLLWAIN – former Ottawa Senator VITAL STATS: Dave McLlwain was born in the southwestern Ontario community of Seaforth on June 9, 1967. He played minor hockey and Junior D in his hometown before earning a spot with the Ontario Junior A Hockey League Kitchener Rangers in 1984 as a walk-on.  He played two seasons with Kitchener and two with the North Bay Centennials, notching 96 regular season goals and 129 assists. In the 1986 NHL Entry Draft he was selected


by the Pittsburgh Penguins in round 9, No. 172 overall. He played pro hockey for 22 years before retiring in 2008-09 as a member of the Cologne Sharks in Germany.

CLAIMS TO FAME: During his third year of junior hockey, McLlwain placed second in OHL scoring with 46 goals and 73 assists. In 1987, while playing for a gold medal against Russia in the World Junior Championships, McLlwain and

his teammates, along with the entire Russian squad, were ejected from the tourney following a 20-minute bench-clearing brawl. As a pro, he won the International Hockey League’s Turner Cup in 1988,while playing with the Muskegon Lumberjacks, an affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins. During his NHL career, he skated with six teams: Pittsburgh, the Winnipeg Jets, the New York Islanders, the Buffalo Sabres, and the Toronto Maple Leafs, and for parts of three seasons, the Ottawa Senators.  In 501 regular-season NHL games, McLlwain scored 100 goals and added 107 assists.  In 110 games with the Senators between 1993 and 1996, he scored 66 goals and 43 assists. As a member of the Jets in 1989-90, his seven shorthanded goals tied him with Steve Yzerman of the Detroit Red Wings for the most shorties that season.  Between 1997 and 2009, he played for three different teams in Europe.

McLlwain, who is the father of a sevenyear-old son, moved to Toronto and became director of business development for VP Protection, which looks after personal security and security at shopping centres, condominiums and construction sites. He also does business development for parking company Target Park. He is involved with the Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni Association and often takes part in charity hockey games.  He lives across the street from the Air Canada Centre, home of the Leafs.



The five-foot, 11-inch, 182-pound McLlwain was known as a solid twoway defensive centre who could put the puck in the net when given the opportunity.

McLlwain holds one of the most unique records in sports. In 1990-91, he played on teams (the Jets, Sabres, Leafs and Islanders) in all four NHL divisions (Smythe, Adams, Patrick and Norris).  It is believed he is the only pro athlete to accomplish such a feat in a single season.

WHERE IS HE NOW? After retiring in 2009 due to back problems and a concussion,

QUOTABLE QUOTE: On playing for the Ottawa Senators, a team that was regularly at the bottom of the standings after rejoining the NHL in 1992: “We had some tough times but Coach (Rick) Bowness knew what we were going through and tried to make it as enjoyable as he could.  During the second and third seasons, the fans came around and got excited, despite our record.”

Q&A The primary care paramedic only carries 10 drugs while the advance care paramedic does everything an emergency physician does, but on the street.


Trainer Mario Dupuis is in his first year with the 67’s after spending last season with the Cumberland Grads of the Canadian Junior Hockey League. The longtime paramedic took some time away from his schedule to discuss the ups and downs of being the trainer for a hockey team. Q: How long have you been training hockey teams? A: I was the trainer for the Cumberland Grads last year; that’s where it all started. I’ve been involved in hockey for a long time. I got into training about three years ago with Dan McDowell from the Nepean Raiders. I did the under-17 Ottawa camp, the under-17 provincial camp for two years, (which was held) again this year in Cornwall. (Dan) told me there was an opening for the 67’s and to submit my


resumé to (67’s head coach and general manager) Chris Byrne. Chris interviewed me and the rest is history. Q: Your day job is as a paramedic. How long have you been doing that? A: Twenty-eight years. Since 1995 as an advance care paramedic.

Q: What exactly does that mean? A: A primary care paramedic is someone who assists the advance care paramedic.

Q: What kind of advice will you give the 67’s to help them avoid injury? A: Proper nutrition, rest, stretching, pre-game dynamic warm-ups, stuff like that. Making sure that they’re not going out on the ice cold, getting the heart rate up and being ready to compete. I kind of watch over them, but these are elite athletes and they don’t need to be pushed by me. The captains and assistants usually run the pre-game warmups.

Q: What will be your primary role with the team? A: My main focus is when the players are on the ice and on the bench. Q: Will there be safety equipment on the bench? A: Yes, a defibrillator. I’ll have all my emergency stuff. Tape, Steri-Strips for cuts, nose plugs, stuff like that that may be used during a game. Obviously I can splint fractures and send them to the hospital. Any injuries that require further treatment, the player will be sent to Marty

(Trudel, team athletic therapist). Q: Have you ever had any serious incidents happen on the ice? A: A couple. I can’t really divulge a player’s name but at the Central Jr. A, I had a player go unconscious from a hit and into a seizure. There was that one and there was a cardiac arrest in the stands at a game in Smiths Falls. I received an award from the mayor of Smiths Falls for bringing (the fan) back to life. It’s not often as a paramedic that we get to meet the people we treat. He came to the Grads game in Navan and thanked me for saving his life.

Q: What was that like? A: It takes you to a different level. I was just doing my job, I’ve been doing this for 28 years and I must have done over a thousand cardiac arrests over my career. For him to come to the game and do that, it’s touching. That’s all I can say is it’s touching.

Q: When a player goes down on the ice, does it cause an instant reaction for you? A: You’re trained to have a Rolodex of options in your head as to what could be going on. Why has he gone down, why is he unconscious?

Or if it’s a hit to the head or a concussion and the player is struggling, it’s an automatic reaction (to go out there).

Q: You often hear of young athletes collapsing and dying during games with previously undetected heart conditions. Can anything be done to try and avoid these tragedies? A: In our baseline testing we look for congenital heart disorders or any family member who died of sudden cardiac arrest, any signs and symptoms that may be related to it – did you ever faint, have shortness of breath or feel dizzy while playing? If so, we enter that in the database I keep at home.

Q: Beyond being the trainer, what are you looking forward to this year? A: Hockey is my passion. I like to see players succeed as a pro or wherever their career may lead them. I enjoy seeing them mature and grow and saying that I was a part of them getting to the pro game or university game. You kind of build that rapport with the players where all aches and bumps and pains, they come to see us and we build that friendship.

he picture has been scanned onto Parri Ceci’s phone, rescued from a dusty box by his wife Karen. The Senators wanted some childhood photos of their latest draft pick, Parri and Karen’s son Cody, and this one was a no-brainer.


Cody is four years old in the picture, his sister Chelsea six. Their Senators jerseys are littered with signatures. Both smile for the camera, Cody’s grin obvious even behind the cage of his mask. The man in the middle of the shot, arms around both kids, is Daniel Alfredsson. All three are standing at centre ice, skates astride the Senators logo at what was then the Corel Centre. Fourteen years later, Cody Ceci’s hockey journey has taken him full circle. In late June, he was drafted 15th overall by the Senators after playing for his hometown 67’s for the past three seasons. Less than a month ago, he signed his first NHL contract in the same building where he once skated as a four-year-old, where he once cheered from the stands, where he once posed with childhood heroes-turned-teammates. “That picture probably makes (Alfredsson) feel pretty old, but it’s pretty cool for me,” Cody says with a smile. “Just getting to meet him a few times when I was younger was huge for me and now to play on the same team would be pretty crazy.” It may be unlikely still, as the NHL seems poised to plunge into its second lockout in just eight years. Along with every other would-be rookie, Cody might not get a chance to make the big club if the season doesn’t start on time. “I’m just trying to prepare myself as if there is going to be a season,” he says. “I’m just going to go hard in the next few weeks trying to get ready for Sens camp and if there is one, great. If not, it’d be pretty unfortunate.” For now, on this flawless Saturday morning, Cody is at the Fred Barrett Arena in Gloucester, where the 67’s are holding

training camp. He’s dressed casually — sunglasses rest atop his head, while shorts and sandals complete the summer ensemble. A recent bout of strep throat has kept him off the ice, forcing him to watch from behind the glass like everyone else. Despite his made-in-Ottawa

pedigree, Cody did move to Peterborough when he was 13 to attend Lakefield College School, a prestigious institution that was attractive because of its high academic standards. “Another friend of ours whom (Cody) had played spring hockey with suggested it,” explains Parri. “Their

two sons had gone there for educational reasons because their graduating class averaged 85 per cent. It was a really good opportunity for Cody and he was thrilled to go. He loved the school.” On the ice, Cody stood out as a member of the Peterborough Petes AAA minor midget squad. CENTRE ICE OCTOBER 2012

“You knew he was going to the NHL,” says Wayne Clark, who coached Cody during his OHL draft year. “He had an absolute hammer of a slapshot from the point.” For Clarke, one moment during a tournament in Belleville especially stands out from that season. “We had a power play and we started to isolate Cody and another player we had, Turner Evans, on the right side,” Clark remembers. “Cody blew one shot over the goalie and a whole bunch of OHL scouts and I said, ‘Wow, he is this good. Some of these tools are outstanding.’” That slapshot helped Cody get drafted 16th overall in 2009. Only two years removed from leaving his home in Orleans, he was back.

YEAR 1999 2000 2001 2002-Spring 2002 2003-Spring 2003 2004-Spring 2004 2005-Spring 2005 2006-Spring 2006 2007-Spring 2007 2008-Spring 2008 2009-Spring 2009 December 2009 2010 2011-Spring 2011 2012-Fall 2012


During the ensuing three seasons with the 67’s, Cody developed into an elite defenceman with an offensive touch, tallying 60 points in 64 games last season. That combination of skills made him one of the highest-ranked prospects heading into June’s NHL draft in Pittsburgh. According to Parri, Winnipeg and Dallas had expressed interest, but as those picks came and went a nervous tension settled on the Ceci travelling party. “When they finally stood up at the mike and said my name it was just a great feeling that I was going to stay at home,” Cody says. “We didn’t even hear the announcement because there were so many people around us cheering,” adds Parri.

Since that night there hasn’t been much time for celebration. Cody was on the ice at rookie camp within a couple of weeks and trains almost every day with a group that includes several NHL draftees. He also played in the Canada-Russia Challenge, where his lack of playing time – he only appeared in two of the four games – drew some negative press. “The main thing is what the Sens are saying to me about it,” he explains. “They didn’t seem too angry or anything, just more frustrated that I didn’t play that much.” As a capper to a whirlwind summer, Cody recently signed a three year, $2.775million contract with the Senators. But don’t expect him to move into a swank bachelor

manager of the 67’s, knows what adjustments his star defenceman will have to make. “It’s obviously the best league in the world so it’s definitely a few rungs up on the ladder,” Byrne says. “For him, depending on how well his game adjusts to that higher speed and level will determine how quickly he gets there.” Back at training camp, Cody reflects on what it’s like to be famous at 18. He seems especially attuned to the emotions of young autographseekers, perhaps because he was one himself not so long ago. “You know they’re just building up courage to talk to you so you don’t want to let them down or anything,” he says. “It’s hard for them to even come up and ask because they feel embarrassed, but at the same time they just really want it and they’re kind of nervous to talk to you. It’s kind of cool when that happens and you just make sure you respect them.” The first on-ice scrimmage comes to an end with the shrill sound of the horn. The hopefuls from the black and white teams skate wearily to the locker room as Cody joins the rush of people trying to escape the chill of the rink for the inviting warmth of the lobby. Everyone here knows who he is. As he makes his way through the crowd, several people give him a nod or a quick hello. About five feet behind him are two young boys, no more than six or seven. They move a little closer, then fall back, dancing with apprehension and nerves. Finally one of them works up the courage. “Will you take a picture with us?” he asks with a small voice. “Sure,” Cody says. He stands in the middle, arms draped over the tiny shoulders to his left and right. The picture is taken and the two little boys thank him before running over to see how it turned out. Full circle indeed.


Building a strong foundation

Minto is proud to support this important adopt a school program. When you’re building a home, you need to start with a strong foundation. Which is a nice image to think of why Minto, in conjunction with the Ottawa 67’s, support the Building A Strong Foundation Adopt A School Program.

Participating companies give kids the opportunity to enjoy a 67’s game by encouraging them to do well in school. With a solid educational foundation, young people are better prepared for future success. And that’s a very inspiring thought.

2000-01 City of Ottawa Learn-to-playhockey program


Nepean Minor Hockey Association


lmost every kid who picks up a stick and laces up a pair of skates wants to play in the NHL. For the vast majority, that childhood dream will go unfulfilled. A little bit of math makes that reality crystal clear. There are 30 teams in the NHL; each is permitted to have no more than 23 players on its active roster during the season. That’s 690 jobs available for players who can reasonably expect to see the ice at some point. Eventually, the reality of those numbers starts to catch up with young hockey players. The dream begins to die, slowly but surely. That’s where people like Matt Ebbs come in. An Ottawa lawyer, Ebbs also serves as an adviser and agent to 20 to 25 players spread out across the CHL, NCAA, OHL and Europe. Ebbs specializes in making sure players get the most out of their hockey careers, even if that doesn’t mean the bright lights of the NHL. One of the players Ebbs counsels is Cameron Roth, a tall, thin defenceman from Ottawa now playing with the Junior Senators of the CJHL after a stellar season last year with the Athens Aeros of the Junior B league. Roth is a selfdescribed strong skater with a good scoring touch who needs to add some muscle to his thin frame in order to excel at the next level. The 17-year-old is certainly talented – Ebbs describes him as “a special player with huge upside” – and could probably play at the OHL level. But, like many others, hopes of the NHL are more


dream than reality at this point. For thousands of players who, like Roth, are good but probably not good enough to suit up on the biggest stage, an NCAA scholarship can be a very appealing alternative. “If he can use hockey to get an education, that would be ideal,” says Doug Roth, Cameron’s father. “He’s looking at options for school and what he can get out of hockey.” The recruiting season is still young, but Roth has already been approached by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., which has been named one of the top 50 universities in the United States by U.S. News & World Report. Yearly tuition and fees at a school like RPI can run upwards of $40,000, making a scholarship even more essential. The recent Junior A Showcase in Kanata attracted lots of NCAA scouts who often come armed with scholarship offers that can be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars over four years. “I don’t think it’ll be long before Cameron gets a Division 1 scholarship,” Ebbs says. It can be tough to turn down the option of playing in the OHL, a league that sends dozens of players to the NHL every year. Yet eligibility rules are unforgiving and leave little room for players to experiment – once an OHL

contract is signed, players lose the chance to play in the NCAA. This all-ornothing environment leaves players like Roth in a pressure-cooker situation. “If you make that major junior jump early, you’ve eliminated a lot of great options,” Ebbs explains. The Roth family seems to echo that point, suggesting that staying at the Junior A level, where NCAA eligibility is preserved, is best both on and off the ice. “Cameron would love to play here for the 67’s but I think he’s looking at what’s best for his future,” his father says. Now in Grade 12 at John McCrae Secondary High School in Barrhaven, Roth has less than a year to decide on his hockey future. He seems genuinely torn, contrasting the OHL’s high level of play to the educational opportunity and college environment of the NCAA. “I’ve been down to a couple NCAA games at

Clarkson (University, in Potsdam, N.Y.) and the atmosphere there was pretty awesome,” Roth says. “Education’s extremely important for me. Also, the hockey level is really fast down there, it’s about the same level as the OHL.” A science buff that can see himself as an engineer someday, Roth bucks the hockey-player-as-jock stereotype and seems genuine in his desire for higher education. That isn’t always the case, as Ebbs says some players place little emphasis on the classroom, go right to the OHL and end up in noman’s-land once their NHL dreams die. It seems unlikely that Roth will end up as a cautionary tale. Will he ever play in the NHL, ever fulfil that childhood dream? Probably not, but then again, hardly anybody does. Hockey may soon take Cameron Roth as far as it’s going to, but that might not be such a bad place after all.

save stressed and thirsty trees this year, the City of Kingston is laying the groundwork for future protection of its urban forest. In response to drought conditions, the city will look at relaxing the outdoor watering rules for homeowners and businesses to help trees survive on private property starting next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just Kingston trees feeling the heat,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Lisa Osanic, who introduced a motion at the August 14 council meeting to develop Kingstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst tree watering policy. The motion was swiftly approved. Kingstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed strategy

-improving mulching and pruning techniques, -reviewing the tree species list to plant trees more likely to survive droughts, -considering the evening use of soaker hoses on watering days. For years, homeowners have faced summer restrictions when watering their lawns and trees in order to ensure enough water capacity. The current rules limit lawn watering to early mornings every other day based on the odd-even address system. Coun. Osanicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion

The statement also says drought is a major cause of tree stress such as browning or wilting leaves that can lead to permanent damage and make trees more prone to insect attacks and disease. Symptoms of tree stress may not show up until next summer.

Thomas said he wishes he could be more supportive of such an initiative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they were of any benefit, it would be a different story,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Conservatives have long lambasted the McGuinty government for their commitment to wind power, claiming that turbines are inefficient and less green than traditional sources of power such as hydro. Fedeli said he wants the government to focus on retrofitting existing dams and hydro plants to harness water energy, which he said would be more environmentally-friendly and more cost-effective.

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Come embrace the bounty of the local harvest and some delectable delicacies at the Kemptville Kinsmen Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market Sunday, Sept. 9 during their MarketPlates fundraiser. This is the third year for the event, sponsored by Old Town Kemptville Business Improvement Area (BIA), which pairs up local restaurants and caterers with market vendors. Vendors provide fresh produce, meat products and other items to chefs, who then create a delicious dish for visitors to sample. For that Sunday, the market, located in Riverside Park, will have extended hours of noon to 4 p.m. According to Denise Busby, who sits on the market executive and is a member of the MarketPlates planning committee, organizers began working on the event back in April. She said it attracts visitors to the farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market while also supporting its vendors and farmers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It brings awareness to the market and to the great number of farmers we have here

and it also helps us introduce some local restaurants to farmers and there have been some relationships built out of that,â&#x20AC;? Busby noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some caterers and restaurants are now buying produce from local farmers. In the winter and spring, they meet to decide what restaurants would like farmers to grow for themâ&#x20AC;Śso itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good event for the farmers as well.â&#x20AC;? Chefs and vendors meet up prior to the event to go through their plan of action and discuss the produce and fresh materials available. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Especially with this year and the drought, so some produce just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t abundant,â&#x20AC;? Busby stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But most of the restaurants have menus that are varied enough that they can make whatever vendors give them.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the abundance of tomatoes, I expect there will be a lot of tomato dishes this year,â&#x20AC;? she added. The way MarketPlates operates is that visitors pay $10 for 10 samples and upon arrival they will be given their tickets, plate and fork and can then meander through the various tasting stations available. Chefs will be creating appetizer-sized

portions (â&#x20AC;&#x153;You actually get quite a bit of food,â&#x20AC;? Busby noted), to nibble on; many of the savoury variety but there will be some sweet treats thrown in as well. Busby said in an effort to be environmentally-friendly, the market does not use disposable plates or cutlery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We use actual plates. We went to the Salvation Army and bought up all of the side plates and forks,â&#x20AC;? she said. While the lineup is still being ď&#x192;&#x17E;nalized, 10 local restaurants/caterers and ď&#x192;&#x17E;ve of the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own prepared food vendors will be showing off their talents. Paired restaurants and vendors include: The Branch Restaurant and Texas Grill with Lotusland Farm; the Brigadoon Restaurant with Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Harvest Farm; Catered Affairs with Aubin Farm; The Crusty Baker with Day Brighteners; and Salamanders with Alimatt Farms. Busby indicated that she enjoys seeing how chefs use their imagination to create dishes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been surprising in past years how creative people have been,â&#x20AC;? she commented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One caterer was given beets last year and made these cute cupcakes and used the beets

as a food colouring. She made three different things with beets, which is very creative considering they just had one ingredient.â&#x20AC;? The unique concept for MarketPlates has led to its popularity. Busby said the ď&#x192;&#x17E;rst year far exceeded organizersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; expectations and while torrential weather wreaked havoc on the event in 2011, they are hoping to attract 400 visitors on Sept. 9. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our ď&#x192;&#x17E;rst year we had no idea how many people to expect so we had planned on 150 and thankfully our chefs knew better and made more portions,â&#x20AC;? she remarked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś Last year, we were destined to be bigger but we had to contend with Hurricane Irene blew through and blew the tops off everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tents.â&#x20AC;? Though the food is the main attraction, there are plenty of other activities taking place during MarketPlates this year. Live entertainment featuring Birdie Whyte, George Buys and Josef Mieto can be enjoyed; Maggie Boyer will be offering face painting for children; and a special kids zone will be set up to entertain the younger crowd at the market.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the peak of the harvest season and a time when just so much is available from our area,â&#x20AC;? Busby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The winter squashes are coming in, there are tons of tomatoes, corn, eggplant, raspberries, melons, apples, potatoes, beans, lots of carrots in various beautiful colours, onions, kale and chard. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect time to hold it because (fall) is when the market is at its fullest.â&#x20AC;? In its sixth season, the Kemptville Kinsmen Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market has grown from four vendors to nearly 50. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so rewarding to see the diversity of customers,â&#x20AC;? Busby noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are lots of young families and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really instilling in their children the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;buy localâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; philosophy so they see that vegetables arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only sold in packages on the grocery store shelf.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for MarketPlates, the proceeds of which go to the Kemptville Kinsmen, can be purchased at this Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sept. 2 market from 2 to 4 p.m. or on the day of the event, beginning at noon.

SARA GUNTER AGE: 10 POSITION: Forward TEAM: Nepean Wildcats Atom B MY PROUDEST MOMENT: When my grandparents came to visit, I had a hockey game and they came to watch. I scored a goal and my grandfather made a joke that he wanted to see a hat trick the next time he went to see me play. Everyone laughed. It turned out that my next game was early in the morning so Grampy had to stay home with my sister while she slept in. Grampy picked the wrong game to miss because I scored a hat trick in front of my Grammy in that game. Grampy was upset that he missed it and Grammy told him all about the game. I was really proud to score that hat trick in front of my Grammy!
