Quote of the Day

“Years ago when we played junior hockey for Victoria Salsa, Billings Bulls and Fairbanks Ice Dogs we went into many sold out arenas filled with passionate fans for their home teams. Some fans like in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island really gave it to us – pounding on the glass, saying some pretty bad things, trying to get you and your team rattled. 

“As a player you need to welcome and embrace these situations and find a way to take away the passion of those fans and their teams.

“Scoring early goals will help, get control of the game, win the game.

“It’s hard, but together as a team you can do it.”
