The Braves organization would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who made this season a success! While we did not finish with a championship, we certainly proved we were not going to be pushed over. Battling from 10th place at the deadline, aiming for 3rd place with mere points separating, and ending at 7th, again with mere points deciding the seeding was a huge accomplishment in itself. Then to take the second place Navan Grads, who had only 12 losses on the season, to a seventh game in round one only to win it was huge! It was on to Ottawa, arguably one of the best junior A teams in Canada, we made a series of it and let Ottawa know we were there to battle. With several extremely close games including an overtime loss, our season came to a conclusion. This is nothing that any of our players should be hanging their heads low for! We had an amazing run and it can only go up from here!
To the Graduating players, Colin Elliott, Josh Cole, Sami Molu, Nick Foster and Matt Yeager, the future is bright and we thank you for all that you have contributed to the team. You all show what it means to be a Brave each and every game and each and every day.
To the rest of the team, next year sure is looking bright! You guys gave it your all and we could not be more proud.
To our billets, our team could not even begin to exist without your support of these young men. The comfort and encouragement you provide, words cannot explain. Thank you, endlessly, for what you do! We are blessed to have you!
To the team staff, coaches, trainers, equipment team, media, sponsorship and game day ops, you are truly in a league of your own. You are professional, dedicated and passionate about your role and we are so lucky to have you!
To the volunteers, the true backbone of our organization. You all selflessly dedicate your time, passion, and skills with a smile. Life gets busy, and we are so thankful that you all take the time to be part of our family on game days and other events. Thank you is truly not enough!!!
To our sponsors, we could not do what we do without your community support. Thank you so much for all you do and we are blessed to be partners with each and every one of you!
To the fans. After a rollercoaster year, you still prove to be the best fans in the CCHL. The support you showed not only during the regular season, but the playoffs, especially on the road, is second to none! We are so lucky to have you behind our boys! We cannot wait until next season!
Thank you to absolutely EVERYONE for an awesome season and we look forward to 2023-2024!
