I wanted to let you know that Tommy and I had a great time on the Sweden/Finland trip. Both cities and the trip to Estonia lived up to my expectations.
I wanted to particularly call out our coach Henry who did a tremendous with both the boys and parents. This was particularly tricky in light of the broad age spread of the group (14-18) which resulted in some lopsided games against the true Finnish 18U teams. He struck the right balance between being competitive and having the drive to win, but also this experience as part of the hockey development process.
As a goalie, Tommy certainly saw his fair share of high-quality chances…
All the best,
