The 09 Railers Squad is currently undefeated
The Jr. Railers 09 Elite sit at the top of their division standings with 6 wins, 2 ties and 0 losses in their 8 games played so far this season.
Head coach Kevin Bisson shared what he believes makes this group of kids so successful as a team.
“The positive energy that flows through the team and all that surround it. The players, parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters embrace the meaning of a family on and off the ice. I always tell the kids that we are a family and the energy they bring to the rink is contagious and everyone feeds off it. They are all supportive of each other and make sure to build each other up,” said Bisson.
The team has put up an impressive 32 goals in their 8 games played. The team looks to continue their winning ways into the weekend as they prepare to take on both the Advantage 09 Select on Saturday and the Warriors on Sunday.
Saturdays game against the Advantage will be their second match up of the season where the Railers came out on top 5-2 back in September. Their contest against the Warriors will also be their second of the season after shutting them out 4-0 back in late September.
Bisson stressed the importance of working as a team and looking out for each other.
“The kids understand that they are responsible for their own work ethic and in turn their own success. They know that the wins and losses happen long before they take the ice on a game day. We talk about never being satisfied and always striving to improve. The goal for every player is to make their teammates better.
