Winnipeg Wild- Manitoba Provincial AAA

The Winnipeg Wild wrapped up a very impressive season this past weekend with a heartbreaking loss at the Telus Cup Western Regionals. The Winnipeg Wild won the MBAAA League in 4 games over the Eastman Selects. From there the team went on to play in the Telus Cup Regionals in Saskatoon. There the Wild made it to the final losing to the Saskatoon Contacts in double overtime. We want to recognize a couple standouts from the team who are Rink Trained. Ian Briscoe came 2nd in the Regionals with 5 points (1 goal, 4 assists) in 4 games played. Riley Stotts also chipped in with 2 assists for the Wild in the tournament. Also want to acknowledge GDI Goalies Mitch Adamyk and Matt Radomsky who both played a huge part in the Wild's season.

Winnipeg Monarchs- Winnipeg AAA Bantam 1

Another Winnipeg team featuring a handful of Rink Trained Players was the Bantam 1 Winnipeg Monarchs. The Winnipeg Monarchs took part in the Western Bantam Championships in Okotoks , AB. The Monarchs finished a dissapointing 4th in the tournament but they season they had that led up to their appearance in Westerns was great. The team won the City Championships in a series win over the Winnipeg Warriors and followed that performance up with a Regional win over the Brandon AAA Wheat Kings to book their ticket to Okotoks. Some of the main contributors on this team train at The Rink. Erik Fawkes, Jonathan Lambos, Michael Ladyman, Jonny Hooker and Tristain Thompson were all named to the Top Manitoba Must Watch POE Prospects according to Western Elite Prospects. These players played huge parts in the success of the Monarchs this year.
