1996 Las Vegas Hockey Classic

our team the Oakland Cardinals won our division at the 96 Vegas tourney.

we were winning 4-3 near the games end, and one of our forwards took a stupid selfish penalty with 1:50 to go. we managed to kill off the clock, and when that puck was cleared down the ice with less than 10 to go the rush of watching the clock tick down was awesome.

after the game, as we lined up for the awarding of our trophies, they announced the all-tournament team. when they announced the outstanding left wing of the tournament, it was my name they called out.

i was so surprised and proud. it was such an honor, one that i could not have acheived without my linemates.

we were the first team from Northern California to be crowned tournament champions. the trophies occupy a space on one of my dressers next to the team photo.
