Hamilton Huskies Winners On and Off Ice

While a looming NHL lockout concerns many about Canada's game, fans of all ages continue to enjoy the excitement of minor hockey in rinks across the nation.  At their home of Chedoke Arena this past weekend, the Hamilton Huskies Minor Hockey Club, better known recently as the Hamilton Reps, re-awakened their historic brand by hitting the ice wearing their new name.  Hosting nine home games to officially launch their season during the appropriately-named “Huskies Days”, players at both AA and AAA levels competed against league rivals while playing for what’s on the front of their jerseys not on their backs.  The two-day event saw arena-goers experience a renewed feeling of excitement as the Hamilton Huskies' Hockey Club re-launched its iconic name from 22 years ago as it was originally founded in 1971.  The organization extends sincere thanks to local manufacturer of customized team gear, Niko Apparel, as they played a significant contributory role in the days’ events with their display and available purchase of Hamilton Huskies Spirit Wear.

As the players donned black armbands over their home jerseys, the organization also recognized and respectfully honoured long-time dedicated Hamilton Huskies’ volunteer Mr. Wayne Constant who passed away September 13th.  Mr. Constant was a beloved member who contributed in many areas over his tenure, in management and in operations, as well as with his humble yet unconditionally positive approach that helped many individuals as well as the organization as a whole.

And while some teams did claim victory on the ice, it is on Huskies Day that the winning attitude and boundless spirit of all organizers, players and fans alike became overwhelmingly evident as they showed their support with countless contributions of non-perishables for the needy at Foodshare of Hamilton.

It is with classic distinction and generous heart that the Hamilton Huskies Minor Hockey Club closed off their successful opening weekend with a display of exemplary attitude and dedication to their organization, their fans and their community!
