Hockey Day a hit in Sooke: Coaches and players well behaved

Sooke's got the NHL beat in demonstrating how to act like a mature adult when it comes to engaging in the game.

Unlike the Vancouver Canucks’ coach John Tortorella (who stormed the Calgary Flames dressing room with a bone to pick at the end of the first period), and unlike the Calgary Flames team who lined up a first line of enforcers, Sooke players and coaches alike actually put Hockey day to good use. Sportsmanship, clean competition, and fun prevailed.

Pictured here, Sooke’s Midgets prevailed against the Juan de Fuca with a 7 – 1 victory. Perhaps the NHL ought to visit us at SEAPARC every now and then.
