Millet Peewee Storm went to Provincials for the first time in nearly a decade. The Peewee Hockey Provincials was hosted by the community of Three Hills.

The players certainly gave it all they had as the competition was fierce, yet we still ended up in the semi-finals for Sunday which we lost.

As a coach this was still a win as we placed fourth in the whole province. We also ended up with five players in the top 25 in scoring during the tournament thanks to Eli Stewart, Kaden Johnston, Austin Buchaski, Blake Trent and Evan Frenzel-Neufeld.

I believe our high light was when Ty Kerber, who had been side lined for major surgery, came back to play part of one game when he had missed our whole playoff run in March.

In closing the community of Three Hills has a great facility and the hospitality was amazing. We sure enjoyed our time there and would like to thank them for making us feel welcome. We can’t wait to hang our zone 4 banner up in the Millet Agriplex for all to see.

Another thing that needs to be noted is the huge amount of community support the Peewee Storm received and was greatly appreciated by the team.

Managers included head coach Ron Buchaski, manager Melissa Emmerzael, assistant coaches Greg Danilak, Tim Kerber and Jason Tolsma.
