Grilling burgers and having some fun.....

Hello again Fredonia followers,

Marcus Ortiz checking in again for yet another fredonia hockey blog spot. Today is the beginning of what some call our last weekend of the school year and wouldnt you know it, we got beautiful weather for it too. We sat outside of the senior house for a large portion of the day grilling burgers and having some fun with some of the alumi that came to visit.
As finals week approaches fast we are all using this as an opportunity to destress and enjoy one of our last weekends together. The NHL playoffs are also in full swing which has us at eachothers throats on a nightly basis but all in good fun! Well I've got a burger to get back to so have a great weekend to all! And enjoy some of the fine weather!!
Go Lightning, Go Capitals!!

This year has flown by.............

These weeks seem to just be flying by.  I had just written a blog on Saturday and boy did this week fly by.  Its getting down to crunch time with exams just around the corner.  The last few weeks of classes are very important because teachers usually give hints of what is on the final exam as well as extra credit.  This year has flown by and I can't believe it is almost over. 

This year taught me even more then last year both on and off the ice.  I became even more comfortable with my surroundings and was able to adapt to some new situations as well.  Next year will be my last year and it need to count both in the classroom and on the ice.  It will be a year of ups and downs and I wouldn't want it any way.  Looking forward to making long lasting memories next year with my teammates and most importantly getting the job done with them on the ice.

Till next time, stay golden.

Captains named.............

Hello blog world!

This is Frankie Hart with his last blog entry of the year. I can't get over how fast this year went by. I would like to wish all the seniors the best of luck in the next chapter of there lives. 

I am very much looking forward to next year, with a positive attitude, we all have and a fresh start right around the corner and are all looking forward to next hockey season. I would like to congratulate Ryan Wilkinson for being named team Captain for next year, and also Bourny, Mitch and Hunter who will be the assistant captains! 

On another note, it's crunch time in the class rooms with exams, homework and finals approaching very quickly. I personally had so much CSIT I've been glued to a computer for a bit longer then I'd like to be!  

I hope everyone has a great end of school year as well as a great summer off. Looking forward to seeing all the returning guys next year! 

Take care,

...the start of the end, with only two weeks left of classes ...

Today marks the start of the end, with only two weeks left of classes I can't believe how quickly this semester has gone by.  These next two weeks will be pretty busy for me as I have a couple projects due and a few more exams before Exam week.  Last night was a very exciting night in the NHL as the Blackhawks won their first round series against the Predators and the Flames closed out their series with a nail biter against the Canucks. Since the playoffs have started I usually find myself glued to the couch by about 7 every night which usually means I'm probably not doing as much homework as I should be, but with so many good games on TV its hard not to watch.   I hope the second round brings as much excitement as the first round has and with half as many games a night maybe a bit more work will get done.

Flags says, "Watch for players to finally break out of their shells and start producing like they can."

This week went by really quickly.  Fortunately for me I did not have any exams or test this week so it was a stress free week.  
All of the hockey guys are in the gym working out hard and getting in great shape for the next season. School is coming to an end and boy did this year go fast.  I had a very good time at Fredonia this year and met a whole new bunch of people.  Next year will be my last year at Fredonia and I plan to make it count on and off the ice.  We have a big freshmen class coming in and I can't wait to see them on the ice.  Look for Fredonia at the top half of the leader board next year.  Watch for players to finally break out of their shells and start producing like they can.  
Go Devils and take care,

"I can't wait to see what the 2015-16 season has in store for us but I know it will be good." Ryan Wilkinson

Hey there everybody, Ryan Wilkinson checking in here for my last blog of the year. 

I'm not too sure what's going on with the weather here in Fredonia and why there's snow on the ground in April, but hopefully it turns around soon. On top of that the amount of school work I've had in the past couple weeks and will have to do till the end of the semester is getting a little crazy. This is definitely the most work I've ever had to do but I'm doing my best to make my way through it. But all of that aside the NHL playoffs are in full swing. This might be one of the best first rounds I've ever seen. The hockey is fast and aggressive with end to end action. This makes me want to get back on the ice already. Watching these guys battle it out is getting me extremely excited to start up next year. C

And with that I will call it a year, talk to you folks next year!

Mitch lands one.......

Mitch Kaufmann with his catch
Kauf here with my last blog of the season as things are starting to wind down in Fredonia as we are in the home stretch of the semester. With most guys so busy during the week you hardly see one another with exams just around the corner besides with a head buried in a book in the library. Many guys tend to different activities for a stress release during this time, but for me as of recent, it's been waiting for the fish to come up the creek! Finally, this week after 3 trips down to Dunkirk over the past couple weeks I was able to land one. Here's a pic of the little fella I caught.

Hope everyone has a great summer!
