NHL players surprises Journey hockey students

Tyson Barrie shows up at Journey middle school hockey acadeny

This past Wednesday, on June 19, the Journey Middle School Hockey Academy had a great treat.

Tyson Barrie, a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League, stopped by SEAPARC.

He signed pucks, jerseys, sticks, shirts, paper and more. We got a chance to ask him questions and look at his IIHF World Championship 2015 gold medal. We also got pictures.

After that we played floor ball with him and he was obviously very good. This was a great opportunity and life experience for all of us.

We would really like to thank Tyson Barrie and Mr. Elm our hockey coach/teacher for making this day possible.
