I hope this message finds you all safe and healthy in this very uncertain time amidst the pandemic.
I wanted to take the time to provide you all with a wrap up of the Ice Puppy Season.
We were so very fortunate that our All Star weekend was completed prior to the facility shut down for social distancing. The IP Coach Charity game and Silent Auction/fundraising event for the MHL Playmore program was another huge success raising $10,000 for the cause. Thank you to Ty Trainor and Pier DiBiase both stepping up from the house league to be the goalies for the Coach’s game. Thank you to Coach Andrew Janeco for shaving his beard for the cause, to Lorn for donating his time to shave Andrew’s beard, to our IP players that sang O Canada to kick off the game, former IP Director Christi Scarrow doing the official puck drop, Josh and Kelly for all of their support behind the scenes, to the MMHA board members supporting this weekend event and to the many volunteers that made this weekend a fantastic finish to the year for the IP players and parents…..THANK YOU.
Thank you to the contributors within our hockey community and the Streetsville/Meadowvale business community that stepped up to make monetary donations and/or prizes for the Silent Auction.

Congratulations to the Junior Coach team led by Coach Chris Realejo as they won the cup beating the Senior Coaches in this friendly game.
Congratulations to Coach Luke Yousufzai as the recipient of ‘IP Coach of the Year’.
Congratulations to Kevin DaSilva and Josh Hancock, recipients of the ‘IP Volunteers of the Year’.
Thank you to all of the IP coaches, team managers and on ice volunteers, without you this amazing season would not have happened.
Thank you to the parents who woke up early every Saturday morning to come to practice and to the parents and families cheering the players on during their Sunday games, all of this makes for great and lasting memories.
I look forward to partnering with you all again next season both on and off the ice when we can put the effect of this pandemic behind us. I wish you, your families and your family safety and good health. A special thank you to many of you who are deemed as essential businesses during this time.
