Another season of the Dragons Breakfast Academy wrapped up on Tuesday, February 7. In total, twenty-two students from grades 2 to 7 from St. Anthony’s (above) hit the ice bright and early every Tuesday morning, and were followed by roughly the same number of students from Greentree School (below), to hone their hockey skills with Coach Kenton Levesque of the Dragons and the Dragons players

Saints racking up wins

The St. Anthony’s Saints Junior B boys basketball team is having a great season learning the game and having fun. They are also racking up wins.
The Saints were in action last week and playing strong. On Monday they took on Three Hills and won 59-17. On Wednesday they hosted Linden and took a 91-10 win.
Coach Gavin Makse said the program is developing. Last season they had 25 kids come out for tryouts showing great interest. With players moving up to Grade 9, they still had a roster of 15.
“We are working on the fundamentals. Preaching good defence and hammering the fundamentals of basketball,” said Makse. ‘We are taking it possession by possession, if you lose it on offence get back on defence,” said Makse.
This weekend they are hosting a home tournament, with Linden, Three Hills and PCA and are hoping to get one more game in by the end of February.
With these wins they have a 12-2 record, only losing to Trinity Christian out of Strathmore and Deer Meadows earlier in the season.

Danielson commits to Western University

Danielson Commit

The Dragons veteran forward Noah Danielson has been one of the most productive and consistent players for the team this year, and it has earned him a commitment to the Western Mustangs Men’s Hockey Program.

Western University which is located in London, Ontario, is a member of the OUA West division of USport Men’s Hockey. USport is the national governing body of university sport in Canada.

Danielson has been one of the most valuable members of the Dragons hockey club this season, bringing veteran leadership and a calming presence to a young roster while also being one of the team’s top scorers.

In 34 games played with the Dragons, he has recorded 21 goals and 40 points, sitting second among the team for points per game average.

Prior to his time with the Dragons, Danielson was a member of the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League. Over his three seasons in the WHL, he played a total of 103 games and recorded 41 career points.
