Congratulations on a terrific season and career! Whether you were a four year player or a first timer, it was an absolute pleasure coaching you and thank you for giving your best.

Know that Kent Place Ice Hockey will always be your home and you are always welcome! Remember to do what Teddy would do and never forget the role fertilizer actually plays. Best of luck next year and you better come back and visit.
