He Dekes, He Dangles, He’s only Ten!

Meet Aito Iguchi from Japan’s Saitama Junior Warriors. Merely 10 and he’s got some wicked puck skills.

My favorite is near the 30 second mark as he chips the puck off the opposing player and scores.

He’s 10! Can’t wait to see him in the NHL!

A Lesson in Kindness and Helping Another Reach a Goal

An oldie but goodie.

Even at a young age, you see the kindness that is created in a hockey player.

This is from the 2013 Special Hockey International, a non competitive tournament but a tournament for young people with a variety of special needs, and it offers a somewhat Olympic feel for the participants, complete with opening and closing ceremonies.

The video was recorded at a Guelph Giants hockey game and it’s just awesome.
