She wears many hats

THRH-334-2

Savannah is one of “my kids” I coached this winter. We call her “Sneaky”, and she has Sneaky on her jersey.  It’s a name she got from coach Bob. If you play for coach Bob you’ll likely get a name. There was the quiet boy who  didn’t say much and when asked what his name was he didn’t say anything Bob said you look like a Fred, yes your name’s Fred. The boy promptly said his name, but the Fred name stuck despite his protesting.

Sneaky was a busy girl at the SPHL game on St Patrick's day.  She was busy cheering for the players during warm ups.

She’s as good as coach Bob when it comes to banging on the glass.

 

THRH-331

She also was youth player of the game that night.

  With the spotlight on her she skated down the ice in front of everyone looking calm and cool like she did this sort of thing every day.

It wasn’t that many months ago she’d looked up from a Blackhawks game on TV

and said Dad, I want to play hockey.

She stood on the blueline with the starting line for the national anthem.

Minutes later she was back in her seat as a full time fan.

She knows just how he feels.

Kyle, a former Plattsburgh state player did a nice slide stop in his move around their defender.

 

THRH-397

And then we scored! Didn’t catch who, doesn’t matter really.

 

THRH-482

It was one of those five guys on the ice, I know that.

 

THRH-451

Little sister was cute as a button and wants to try hockey when her feet are big enough to fit in some skates.

As always, it was a great day for hockey.
