Caylen Blake works hard on and off the ice to be at his best every game.
It’s his favourite thing to do.
He’s a fan of the game. He’s a student of the game. And, it seems to be working for him.
Blake, a nine-year-old Grade 4 student at J. J. Curling Elementary, was an offensive force at the 2018 Ambrose O’Reilly Atom House League Hockey Tournament held this past weekend in Corner Brook.
The speedy forward scored four goals to lead Health & Performance to a 5-4 overtime win over Barry Group Inc. in the championship final Sunday at the Corner Brook Civic Centre.
Blake also had a four-goal game in a 9-0 win over Stephenville 1, while registering hat tricks in two other games — a 9-8 victory over St. Anthony and a 9-9 tie against Medicine Shoppe, another atom house league team in the Corner Brook Minor Hockey Association.
Carter Bromley was an offensive star for the Medicine Shoppe throughout the tournament, his biggest game coming in the form of a seven-goal performance in the stalemate with Blake and company in their round-robin showdown.
Bromley had two six-goal games in round-robin play, leading the charge in an 8-8 tie against St. Anthony and a 9-2 thumping of Stephenville 1.
