(Twitter)   Up 7-0 after the first period, 9-year-old goalie taunts the opposing goalie over his first try between the pipes. Just kidding, he gives him pointers between periods   ( twitter.com) divider line

Implying that friendly advice isn't the ascended form of taunting. :^)

Hopefully the kid doesn't get that beaten out of him by hypercompetitive jackasses in his life.

How much time does she spend 'between the pipes'? It's plural for a reason, sir.

You all are a bunch of suckers. You are making a BIG assumption that the advice rendered was sound and well meaning. Also, if you look closely you can see the "teacher" sneaking skate guards onto the new kid's skates.

He'll do fine.  There's no fun in beating someone because they don't know what they're doing.  If I beat someone at something I want it on a level playing field.

Except Monopoly.  I will cheat every farking chance I get if I play anyone in Monopoly.

Well, he should be good as long as you're not his coach.

I've been involved in youth sports on many levels, I've run the local little league, I've been the PSC for the PAL, coached, whatever was needed. I have had one complaint about a kid, which was backed down because several other parents saw what had actually happened, from a parent who was a little...protective of her child. That was it. I have had a complaint a day about parents. I have had police called on more than one occasion. I've had to ban people. The problem is never the kids. It's always the parents.

Depending on the circumstances, keepers are as loyal to other keepers as they are to their own team.  It's a thankless job.

/my experience in soccer, may be different in ice skate fighting.

I was at the 2009 World Juniors in Ottawa, the Kazakhstan team had somehow made it to the big show. The team was totally outclassed by Canadians, Russian, Americans and almost every other team.
They had a goalie that was 110 lb, his equipment must have been a third of his weight. They lost 15-0 playing the Canadians but there was 65 shots on goal. he averaged between 50-60 shots a game. There was no defense in front of this kid (some of their d couldn't even transition from forward to backwards skating without falling) But this kid still stopped an amazing amount of shots, he had the whole crowd behind him at every game, people cheered his every save. The team did not score a goal until the relegation game.
What pissed us off was the Kazakh team never gave him player of the game throughout the whole tournament, they kept giving it to forwards who never scored. He was the only one on their team actually doing his job but they never recognized that.
I hope he realised that the fans appreciated his play because he deserved something.
 
2017-12-06 10:02:22 AM  
This is disgusting, Ron Hextall at that age would have given the opposing goalie the Inglewood Jack at the minimum. This sportsmanship crap reduces the chance, even at some microscopically small level, of future goalie fights.

Maybe fifteen years ago I was watching a soccer game of ten year olds that my little stepbrother was reffing. On one of the teams there was some kid who could beat three or four defenders with regularity but there was always one more than he could handle. The poor kid had next to no help and his team got trounced but it was pretty much one against everybody. I made sure to pull the kid aside after the game and give him kudos.

Reminds me of the WJC in Halifax.  Canada drew Germany in the round robin and were skating them into the ground.  The only thing keeping Germany in it was their goalie until the dam finally broke in the third period.  He was named player of the game and the crowd gave him a standing ovation.

Csb,

When I was in undergrad, I was a mediocre goalie. I also played on the business school ice hockey team because 1) they didn't have a goalie 2) were all over 21, so lots of boozing with no questions. 2a) got to hang out at business school happy hours 3) business school women - cougars in training.

Anyways, the business school team is going to a tourney at wharton. Our school only had one team....it ranged from guys that were former minor leaguers to guys that didn't put on skates until they were 25. Most other schools had many teams, wharton had multiple teams in the tourney....we didn't know it was a novice tourney.

Luckily it was a drinking / networking thing instead of a serious tourney...there were kegs on each team's bench. After the first period of the first game, it was x-0. My water bottle was pulled and returned filled with beer. Goal scorers on our team were "made" to chug a beer after they scored, I was "made" to chug a 1/2 or 1/3 each time we scored. I ended up giving up 5 or 6 goals over the entire 3 days. All in the third periods, usually because I was too drunk to stand and couldn't focus on which puck I was seeing was real.

Fun weekends, what I remember.

Oh wait, added csb,

So second night of the tourney our first year there, we are bombed in one of their bars, with lots of the other teams. Our team keeps going around and calling out our own team members and chanting over and over "so and so takes it in the ass" over and over for a bit, then stop and then someone else would say some thing stupid and it would start again. At some point, a woman from one school comes over as she was quite sick of our sophomoric shenanigans, and ask us if we can stop singing "x person takes it up the ass". One of our guys, totally straight faced, apologizes,  introduces himself and asks her name...she answers, Stephanie. Immediately we all start chanting "Stephanie takes it up the ass", the entire bar breaks out laughing, she turned bright red.

Good times.

Yeah, it's about more than just the final score. When there are that many shots on goal, nobody is playing any defense, and even the greatest goalie is going to let some slip by.

And TFA is sweet as hell. Good for this kid!

Not to mention the parents and others in the stands as well as all the players from both teams who applauded whenever he made a save.

Bruins/Blackhawks Winter Classic at Notre Dame. Plus a new casino/resort is opening in town this coming summer. Plus local youth/HS league will probably host tourneys there.
