You know this talk about 10U and 12U is kind of sad. The 12U Igloo kids are playing to have fun and while not having a lot talent is playing where they should. The 10U Igloo A has some really good players that should be playing AA and others are where they should be. The issue is is it good to have kids play down, skate through other teams end to end, score 18 goals so far and then tout the kid as Johnny Hockey? I know this kid is 8, but there are other 2015 players playing AAA at 2013 level and thriving. And some of them are named Johnny. Those are the true Johnny Hockeys. Playing against low A level players (due to AA pure) is not real hockey. That being said, the kid is an above average player, let him have fun and stop with the Johnny Hockey BS! I bet it was his blow-hard dad who wrote that post. Last year his dad said he was so good he could have played 10U AA for the Blazers if he wasn't too young. Tell his dad if he is that delusional I have a bridge to sell him in Brooklyn!
