This is going to get bad, quick. Kids may start quitting even more when they see the size differences among 14/15 year olds and, oh ****, we were never taught to hit.
Last 2 Memorial Cup champs from Quebec Major Junior League. Looks like that no checking in Pee Wee is really hurting them. Surprised they weren't all out with concussions after not learning to take a check at 10years old.
