Little Dippers Player of the Week - week ending 11/5

Great Alaska Pizza Co. Player of Week ending 11/5

Miles Jones was selected as the Great Alaska Pizza Co. Player of the Week ending 11/5. Miles, who is originally from Canada, is new to AHA and plays on one of our Red Minor teams. We first got a glimpse of Miles ability during our spring Learn to Play program in April. Just watching Miles for a little while, you realize that he possesses a lot of hockey sense and he plays the game with his head... At this level, you get a lot of kids who just chase the puck around the rink or get all bunched up in scrums. Miles on the other hand,  is always trying to support his teammates and put himself in a position for a pass or shot. One of the unique things about Miles is he likes to communicate and you can hear him talking to teammates which is a rare thing for a 7 year old. We're excited to see what the future holds for Miles!
