Alex has been enjoying his hockey season so far. He has been primarily a defensemen, but recently has had the opportunity to share goalie duties with one of his teammates.
Below are some pictures taken on Saturday, December 20 at the Colisee in Lewiston against one of the Junior Maineiacs teams. The photos were taken by Ron Morin of Ron’s Sports Photography. He is also the photographer for the Lewiston Maineiacs. Visit his site at www.ronssportsphotography.com and book him for your sports event!
On Sunday, December 21, Alex got his first shut out as a goalie!!!
And here are some video clips of his saves in Apple Quicktime format. The last clip is of our game winning goal. Click on the icon to load the video (note - these are un-edited video clips, so there is some extraneous stuff on some of them).
UPDATE: ALEX GET’S HIS FIRST GOAL OF THE SEASON!!!! - Late in the third period of the Gardiner vs. Bangor Red, Alex got his first goal of the season. In a rare opportunity, the coach decided to have Alex skate up as a forward for the tournament (rather than defenseman or goalie). In this video, he is playing at the right wing. His first shot got stopped by the (very good) goalie, but he followed up and stuffed in the rebound. This video doesn’t show it, but he almost got another goal off the next face off. Gardiner won this game 6-1, and although the score doesn’t show it, the Bangor goalie was outstanding. We actually had a number of really solid opportunities to score that he stopped.
