Day 1 is over for the Jr. Flyers and we won our game in overtime against the Colorado Thunderbirds 4-3. To make the game more special for me is that my son scored the winning goal!
There are tons of talented players at this tournament and you can’t turn around without rubbing elbows with a scout from the USHL, NAHL, EJHL College and even NHL Central Scouting.
Mid-Fairfield lost to the Boston Jr. Bruins 4-0 already. St. Mary’s was in a tie when I had to leave the rink so right now the tournament is open for all the teams to advance. Fasthockey.com is streaming all the games live so anyone can watch from the comfort of their own home. Tomorrow we play Russell Stover and a win should give us a spot in the play-off round on Saturday. We lost one of our defensemen with a broken wrist from a slash on the third shift of the game. I feel really bad for Chris Dinsmore, but hope him a quick recovery.
