Parent thoughts: 
We are proud of the young man you have become both on and off the ice. From a very young age, you demonstrated determination by learning to skate on your own in order to play. We are proud of the accomplishments you have made throughout your hockey career, even when there was talk about hanging up the skates. You put in the hard work and determination to become the player we know and love today. Thanks for being you – Love Mom & Dad. P.S. Keep eating grapes….
