If you met the guy you would prob want him in any program you were running. In fact, just from reading your posts and opinions you two would prob be very good friends. He has been instrumental in turning the Hawks program around, from being an association that developed players who then left for the win column at other associations to one where many of the top local players are now looking to come into or return. His peers coaching in both WNYAHL and Empire West hold him in the highest regards.


I believe that first shut out of the season, he saw maybe 10 shots on net and maybe 2 scoring chances. To describe the game you would just need to know that Coach Mike had switched his O and D and had his left and right sides switched by about the halfway point of the game. my son spent most of his time in the crease doing movement drills. lol The game was VS a Tier II team and just an exhibition game. In all honesty it was prob the easiest shut-out of the 60+ he has tallied so far. Alexander did laugh at the comment. At age 13 and with 9 travel seasons exclussive to the crease under his belt, he is well experienced. Plus the two of them tend to go back and forth in good natured teasing quite a bit. Coach Mike will be one of those Coaches that a player will never forget and fondly remember.
