American Team Goes to Detroit

U16 Thunder American Team
(middle row: Winger=far left; and
Polar Bear=behind goalie on right)
Coach Marakhovski = from Latvia

They played five games in this first Super Series. Four wins plus one loss in overtime. Lots of Schmidling goals (yea!) including a hat trick for Polar Bear in the 4th game! Only one broken stick. Plus, I got two team dinners pulled together at the hotel's conference room. The players also experienced their first ice baths (to help speed the lactic acid out of your legs before a second game on the same day) which produced some shrieks and groans :-)
