Seven Chiefs headed to Alliance All Star Game
Submitted By Tim Smart on Tuesday, November 28, 2017
Stratford, ON -  ALLIANCE Hockey is pleased to announce that the 2017 ALLIANCE Hockey AAA Pro Hockey Life All-Star Weekend is being hosted at Southwood Arena in Woodstock, ON December 2-3, 2017.  The 2017 event is proudly sponsored in part by Pro Hockey Life and Gatorade.  The Weekend will feature 3 All-Star games and will showcase some of the top ALLIANCE Hockey talent from the Bantam AAA, Minor Midget AAA and Midget AAA Leagues. Seven Elgin Middlesex Chiefs are set to play in this year's game:

Bantam:

D - Ethan MacKinnon
F - Ryan Burke
F - Austin Connors

Minor Midget:

D - Matthew Faragher

F - Rylan Bowers

There are no gate fees associated with this event and we encourage everyone to come out and cheer on the participants!

Midget Rosters


All games will be played at: Southwood Arena - Red Pad, 381 Finkle Street Woodstock, ON

Understandably, this is an exciting time for those players who have been selected to participate and disappointing for those who were not.  For those who are discouraged, keep in mind that there have been many talented players over the years who were not selected to specific teams, camps, games, etc.  
Look no further than ALLIANCE Hockey Graduates Tanner Pearson (LA Kings) and Ryan Ellis (Nashville Predators) both of whom did not advance from the Under 17 Camp.  Through their disappointment, they persevered, worked hard and were determined to prove that they could compete with the best.  Both players eventually found themselves starring on the Canadian World Junior Team and playing in the NHL.

Like Pearson and Ellis, another great example of perseverance is highlighted in Colton Kammerer's story...recently passed over for an invite to the U17 summer camp, Colton Kammerer used the snub as motivation to play his way to northern B.C.
