We have more than a dozen ice surfaces. With over 2,500 kids in Minor Hockey.
Yes we have baseball and football local teams, but hockey is king as it is in most of Canada.
I don't think Canadians down play hockey in the states it's just that hockey is almost everything that we don't understand the struggles the game has else where?
Others also don't understand how dominating hockey is in Canada. My little province of about 750,000 has about 17,000 players registered with the provincial governing body. These numbers are repeated across the nation. So we are not saying anything bad about US hockey, it's that we don't understand.
wow is ur town called Heaven!!!

i wish more places in the states are like that!
