IT'S JUST A GAME

As some of our teams are embarking on the playoff season, we would like to remind all parents and fans that it's just a game. Hockey should be fun. The sign attached to this message, and posted in both arenas, is an excellent reminder to all of us to keep it real. Have fun and good luck to all teams.
