Fleury speaking

Former NHL star Theoren Fleury held a workshop entitled “Reflections on Healing and Trauma, a One-Day Conversation with Theo Fleury” at the Couchiching multi-use facility last Thursday. The workshop aimed to help those dealing with traumatic experiences to open up in a safe, community-like atmosphere so they could begin down the path to healing.

Senior spikers building on defence

They say defence wins championships and that's where the focus will lie for the Muskie senior girls' volleyball team this season.

Head coach Duane Roen knows a strong defence is paramount to any success his squad will enjoy this year in NorWOSSA play, which officially kicked off yesterday against the host Kenora Broncos (the outcome wasn't known as of press time).

Fast shot

Robert McCollum (Thunder Bay North Stars) of Team Canada blasted away with all his might in an attempt to be crowned the player with the hardest shot during the skills competition that was part of the SIJHL's annual all-star festivities here last Wednesday night. Alec Severson (Thief River Falls Norskies) of Team U.S.A. won the event with a rocket that clocked in at 90.08 m.p.h.

Opening goal

Makenna Henttonen fired a shot through the five-hole of International Falls Broncos' goalie Grace Wegner to open the scoring in the first period of the Muskie girls' hockey team's 2-1 overtime win in the opener of their annual two-game “Border Battle” exhibition series last Tuesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Squaring up shot

Team Canada's Keighan Gerrie (Thunder Bay North Stars) looked to square up a shot towards the Team U.S.A. net while defenceman Jake Eischen (Thief River Falls Norskies) tried to get his stick in the shooting lane during his squad's 8-6 loss in the SIJHL's annual all-star game last Wednesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena here. Gerrie notched an assist in a losing cause.

Skating fast

Team Canada's Cameron Coutre (Dryden GM Ice Dogs) skated with power and grace as he was deemed the fastest skater with a time of 13.57 seconds while Chase Robideau (Fort Frances Lakers) of Team U.S.A. looked to skillfully weave his way around a pylon during the puck relay event of the skills competition held as part of the SIJHL's all-star festivities here last Wednesday night.
