The Quinte Red Devil Minor Midgets would like to thank Rhino Sports for the support and sponsorship during the 2016-2017 season. The week ahead will be the last time this team assembles together to play as a team, though they will be teammates for life, this week presents an opportunity for the team to finish strong and to go far into the OHL Cup Tournament.

This team is as resilient as any other team in the province; there have been many adversities within the season at different times for different reasons. That is the amazing thing about our sport as it prepares boys/young men for the future, teaches them life skill sets and gives them the opportunity to overcome challenges not normally faced in the “real” world until much later in life. A hockey player has to rely on their teammates as much as the team relies on them as individuals to be successful; hockey gives players the opportunity to succeed and be successful in a team environment.


This team has been at the top or near the top of every ranking published for this age group and the reason for this is; the boys believe in themselves and believe in one another. At this age and as hard as they have worked it’s the belief in each other that has carried them through and made this a successful season.

Every one of them brings something significant to the team concept and the game that is played on the ice, whether it’s a great save, a blocked shot, a stifled two on one, a great back check, a bone crushing body check or an amazing pass that leads to a goal. This team has the players that can fill all of these roles and on any given game day; it’s a multitude of them being “that guy” that brings it “that game” for his teammates.
