  2nd Annual Derek Roy Golf Tournament

The 2nd Annual Derek Roy Charity Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, August 19th, 2005 at the Hammond Golf and Country Club.

Proceeds from this event will be donated to CHEO and once again this year, organizers can count on CORA'S RESTAURANTS OF THE NATIONAL CAPITAL as their main sponsor.

"We are truly blessed here in Eastern Ontario to have a world class paediatric health care facility like CHEO. As our
  communities continue to grow, and more and more families rely on CHEO, support from individuals and local businesses takes on an even greater significance" said tournament president Kyle Cyr.

"Health care for children is different. Healing little bodies and minds require specialized equipment, research and programs. It also requires specially trained doctors, nurses and other hospital staff. I feel deeply fortunate to be able to help CHEO" added Derek Roy.

"Over 160 golfers helped raised just over $ 12 000 for CHEO last year. We are expecting an even greater turn-out this year with the presence of local rising NHL stars such as Benoit Pouliot and Kevin Lalande who are both expected to attend" confirmed tournament coordinator François Faucon.

Foursomes looking to register are asked to contact by telephone François Faucon at (613) 487-2989 or by e-mail at derekroygolf@hotmail.com.

      Major Peewee Winners in Brossard
      The Major Peewee AA Cobras almost made it a perfect record in Brossard. The came across two American teams and a team from St-Johns which questionned the physical size of the Cobras.

    WE BLAME IT ON THE CANADIAN BEEF


    Never the less, the Cobras started the tournament with a 15-1 victory in their 1st game against the Methuen Rangers from Massachutes with MVP honors going to team assistant Sébastien Boucher. In the 2nd game, the Cobras won 3-0 over the St-John Caps with MVP honnors going to goalie Maxime Bédard.

    Maxime B?dard, wrap it up in nets with a shut out, to bring home the best goalie award.

    Thanks boys for a great effort.



      Doc Paul, trainer extraordinaire
      Doc Paul, trainer extraordinaire Most days it takes two trips to the car for Paul Gravelle to bring all his gear into the arena before a game. That's because aside from the standard first aid kit that all trainers carry, the PeeWee AA Minor Cobras trainer packs a kit that includes medicine balls, spare jerseys, ice, water bottles, a tool kit, spare shin pads and elbow pads, a jock and a neck guard. Somewhere in there, there's probably a kitchen sink too.

    Ask the kids what's so special about the man who has affectionately become known around the team as "Doc Paul," and their eyes light up. "He's awesome, 'cause he's really good and he knows what he's doing," says centre Kevin Tansey. Eric Dubois agrees: "He knows how to prepare us before a game. Almost every day he comes up with a new drill for us. He helps us get ready for a physical game, and if it's going to be a fast game he helps us get our legs ready so we can keep up," says the big defenceman.
    Paul comes by his trainer's calling honestly. The son of a high school principal and a teacher himself, he began working as a coach and a trainer when he was a teenager. ?He's been like that since he was in high school,? says his wife Cheryl. "He used to go and coach the kids at the school where his father was a principal," she adds with a laugh.

    In the dressing room he helps tie skates, fix a helmet, take a burr out of a skate blade, and bandage a cut before a game. "Tape up your pads well, boys," he tells the players before a game against Cumberland, one of the most physical teams in the league, dispensing tape like a referee dropping pucks at a face-off-as long as the game is on, you know there will be more.

    A level two trainer, Paul takes his job seriously. Any time a player is helped off the ice and has to leave the game, he writes up a short
    report and debriefs the coach and the player's parents, quick to recommend ice, heat or a particular stretch that will help soothe the pain. But he doesn't take himself too seriously, almost always showing up to practices and games in athletic shorts, no matter how cold it is. How can an injured player not get up and return to the bench when he looks over and sees Doc Paul lying flat on the ice beside him, bare legs on the ice, inquiring, "Where does it hurt?" That's commitment.

    Paul puts the players through their paces before each game, working them through a routine that includes stretches, strengthening exercises and speed and agility drills with skipping ropes, medicine balls and punching pads, a mid-season addition that is a hit with the players. "He's excellent, the best trainer I've ever had," says forward Phil Menard. "He takes care of us; it's almost as if we are his kids," he adds.

    Ironically, hockey is not his sport, something that's very quickly evident when he laces them up for a game against the kids after the regular season
    ended. He grew up on the gridiron, playing football for Carleton University before he blew out his knee and took up the "safer" sport of rugby. In the wintertime he pumps iron and shoots hoops to keep in shape. It's paid off ? even though he struggled to keep up with the kids during the year-end game, he managed to roof one against goalie Mario Dion by parking himself at the side of the crease: right place right time. That's the way it's been for the kids who have been lucky enough to have him coach their basketball, football, and soccer teams at various points over the years.

    His dedication has not escaped the parents either. "He's really focused on the kids," says Michel Menard. Peter Brown agrees. "I think Paul is the world's greatest trainer because he's dedicated to the sport, to the kids, on and off the ice, during practices and events," he says. Hélène Laporte also sees something special in him. "What I like about Paul when he's training the kids is the sparkle in his eye. It just amazes me; I'd like to capture that in a picture because it's so unbelievable. I've never seen that."

    He's been a big help to coach Mike Tansey too. "I know the kids are going to be ready to play," he says. "He's taken pre-game preparation to a whole new level, freeing me up to do some of the things that I need to do to get ready for games," he says. His wife Joanne appreciates Paul for another reason. "It's nice to know when a kid is hurt on the ice he's being attended to by someone who actually knows what he's doing!"

    In a year when hockey-starved fans all across the country have been looking for fresh heroes, assistant coach Pierre Crete puts things in perspective. "We're lucky the Senators aren't playing this year -- they probably would have stolen him!"

    For his dedication, his hard work, his ready laugh and the always present sparkle in his eye, Paul Gravelle is the PW Minor nominee for volunteer of the year.

      Major Bantams - Finalists in Cornwall Tournamanent

    Major Bantam





































    The Major Bantam Cobras participated in the "AAA" Division of the 42nd Annual Cornwall Minor Hockey Association Bantam Tournament from February 3rd to February 6th.

    On Thursday night, the Cobras opened with a convincing 5-1 win over the Seaway Valley Rapids. This revenged a 4-2 loss to Seaway earlier in the week which cost the Cobras 5th place in the overall league standings. Jason Talbot had 2 goals while Andrew Hampton, Jacob Laliberté and Renaud Brisson each had single markers.

    On Friday night, the Cobras got off to a very slow start and never rebounded from a 4-1 first period deficit, losing to the Barrie Colts 9-3. Marcel Groulx, Jacob Laliberté and R.J. Wallace tallied for the Cobras.

    On Saturday afternoon, the team from Springfield, Massachusetts was no match for the Cobras. By the end, the score was 13-0 for the Cobras. Dan Dubois had the shutout. Marcel Groulx had a natural hat-trick in the first period. Jacob Laliberté added 4 goals of his own. Jason Talbot added 2 goals, while singles went to Andrew Hampton, Mathieu Houle, Matthew Ouimet and R.J. Wallace.

    The Majors' 2-1 record gave them the right to face-off against the Whitby Wildcats in the Sunday morning semi-final. The Cobras got off to an early 3-0 lead with goals by Laliberté, Talbot and Wallace. Jason Talbot scored at the buzzer at the end of the 2nd period and gave the Cobras a 4-2 lead going into the break. Talbot scored again in an empty net to give the Cobras a 5-2 victory and a re-match against Barrie in the finals on Sunday afternoon. Alex Chrétien was very solid between the pipes for the Cobras.

    In probably the best effort of the tournament, the Cobras were determined to revenge the earlier tournament loss to Barrie, but, at the conclusion of the game, they were on the short-end of a 3-2 count. This was an excellent hockey game for the players, parents and fans to watch. Gabriel Brisson and Marcel Groulx scored for the Cobras.

    The tournament was a great tune-up for the team as they prepare the 1st round of the playoffs. Hopefully, the experiences and the lessons learned during the tournament will pay dividends as they playoff for the right to represent the ODMHA at the Ontario Bantam Cup in Thunder Bay at the end of March.

      Minor Peewee compete in Kingston
    Minor Peewee





























































    After struggling most of the season against teams in their league, the PW Minor Cobras showed they can compete against their peers at the Limestone Cup Tournament in Kingston.

    In three games in the round-robin segment of the tournament, the boys played .500 hockey, posting a record of 1-1-1.

    In their first game, the Cobras had a hard time finding their legs after the long drive from Ottawa, skating to a 1-1 tie with the Sudbury Lakers in a goaltenders battle. Marc-André Laporte was stellar in nets for the Cobras, turning away 20 of 21 shots, while the Sudbury goaltender stopped 23 of the 24 shots directed his way. Sébastien Dion slid a pass from behind the net to Kevin Tansey in the slot for the Cobras' goal at 5:18 of the first period. Sudbury tied the game in the second.

    The Cobras played the Ottawa Sting in game 2, and came out on the short end of a 4-2 score. The game was a fast skating affair, and both teams had many good scoring chances. The difference was two power play goals scored by the Sting during a major penalty in the second period. Cédéric Crète and Derek Roy tallied for the Cobras, who never quit hustling, outshooting the Sting 12-5 in third period.

    On Saturday morning the boys faced the Rideau St-Laurent Kings, another team from the ODMHA AA league. Despite being outshot by a 2-1 margin, the Cobras made their shots count and won 3-1. Francis Lafond, Thierry Gibeault and Cédric Labelle scored for the Cobras. Jason Bradley played a strong, physical game on defence, and set up the third goal.

    The boys advanced to the B semi-final, where they played the Bell Capital Cup champion Kanata Blazers. The Cobras took a 1-0 lead in the first period when Francis Lafond finished off a pretty three-way passing play with a shot from the slot. Kanata tied the game thirty-five seconds later, then took a 2-1 lead in the second period. Despite a power play opportunity with less than two minutes left in the game, the Cobras were unable to capitalize after pulling goalie Éric Rivard for a two-man advantage in the dying minutes of the game.

    Overall it a great weekend of hockey. The team competed in every game, giving up only eight goals in four games. Both goaltenders played well, the defence were effective at closing down passing lanes and controlling their opponents in front of the net, and all of the forwards worked hard to create pressure in the offensive zone.

    Many thanks to the Kingston Predators for organizing an excellent tournament.

      Le Midget AA finaliste au Tournoi International de Drummondville
    Midget AA
























































    L'équipe du Midget AA participait dans la catégorie "Invitation AA" de ce tournoi du 28 au 30 janvier. L'équipe a débuté le tournoi avec une victoire très convainquante de 4 à 0 contre les Panthers Hartland N.B. en dominant du début à la fin. Marc-André Boucher a enregistré le jeu blanc.

    La deuxième partie contre les Pionniers de Lanaudière a été plus serrée que la première. Après le temps réglementaire, la partie était égale 3 à 3 et devait se décider en surtemps. Avec le système "Franc Jeu" au Québec, l'équipe de Lanaudière avait plus de 21 minutes de pénalité, et c'est vu être décerné une pénalité de 5 minutes. Avec cette chance en or de mettre fin à la partie, Lance Stewart a joué les héros en marquant lors de cet avantage.

    La troisième partie a été très sérée. L'équipe affrontait une formation très imposante physiquement, soit le TGV Pentagone de Mont-Joli. La partie s'est dispustée avec beaucoup d'intensité et de très belle pièce de jeux. La chance n'a pas été de notre côté malgré les nombreux avantages numériques. L'équipe s'est inclinée par la marque de 4 à 2.

    Avec un record de 2 victoires et 1 défaite, l'équipe s'est classée en semi-finale et devait affronter l'équipe au premier rang de l'autre division, soit le National de Val d'Or. Les joueurs ont disputé toute une rencontre avec un niveau d'intensité très élevé en plus de démontré un très beau jeux d'équipe. L'équipe a remporté cette rencontre par la marque de 6 à 3. Lors de cette rencontre, Réjean Leduc a obtenu un tour du chapeau alors qu'Andy Groulx a effectué de nombreux arrêts.

    En finale, l'équipe devait affronter encore une fois le TGV Pentagone de Mont-Joli. La rencontre a été très serrée encore une fois et les joueurs ont donné tout ce qu'ils pouvaient. Malheureusement, l'équipe s'est inclinée par la marque de 3 à 2.

    Félicitations à tous les joueurs pour le très beau tournoi.

      Atom AA Finalist in Nepean Raiders Tournament Atom AA

    A great weekend of hockey by Coach Dan Quinn's Atom AA led to an appearance in the finals of the Nepean Raiders tournament December 10-12 at the Walter Baker Center. The Cobras got off on the right foot with a 1-0 win over the Rideau-St. Lawrence Kings. Alexandre Lefebvre was solid in net and picked up the shutout. The next game was against Nepean, and again, hard work, discipline and team play contributed to the victory. Final score was 3-1 Cobras. The line of Mikeal Grenier, Nicholas Brazeau and Justin Blanchard-Pellerin was outstanding for the Cobras, with Justin scoring all three Cobra goals The third game was against Goulborne Rams of the Ottawa A league. It was a tight game, with teams going end-to-end and trading scoring chances. Finally Goulborne scored on a scramble play with just a minute or so left to eke out a 2-1 victory.

    In the semi-finals, the Cobras played what some fans called their best game to date and shut down the powerful Cumberland Barons. A strong forecheck and good defensive coverage limited the Baron shooters to only a handful of opportunities. The line of Patrick Cyr, Nicholas Bedard and Alex Pozzebon provided strong forechecking that kept the Barons tied up in their own end for the last few minutes of the game. Pierre-Luc Dignard continued his solid play with another fine effort on the blue line. Final score was 2-1 for Eastern Ontario.

    With the Barons eliminated, the Cobras were on to the finals. Earlier in the day, the Goulborne Rams had defeated Seaway Valley in overtime to advance to the final. The Cobras would again face Goulbourne. Like the round-robin game between these two teams, this one again went end-to-end. The Cobras had two good scoring chances in the first period and converted them both building a 2-0 lead. But credit where credit is due - Goulborne fought back and slowly took control of the game from the Cobras. With only 2 minutes left in the game, a bounce on the blue line, a breakaway and a Goulborne goal - tie game. It would take overtime to decide the championship. The overtime format went 5-on-5 for one minute with no goal, then 4-on-4, then 3-on-3. Finally, with only 2 players from each side on the ice, an intercepted pass off the rush came back the other way and Goulborne scored for the title. A great game and well earned victory for the Rams.

    Thanks to the Nepean organizers who ran the event for putting together an enjoyable tournament. The Cobras put together a solid 5 games run that we hope will continue in league play.

      The Major Peewee Cobras visits the Belleville Bulls
    Belleville Bulls




















































    The Major Peewee Cobras travelled to Belleville for the Red Devils AAA tournament December 3-5. In their 4 games, the Cobras managed a 1-2-1 record, beating the Quinte Red Devils 2-1 and tying Rideau-St. Lawrence 2-2. The losses, against league rivals Cumberland and Sting, were also close games that went right to the last minute.

    One of the highlights of the weekend for the Cobras was their visit with Belleville Bulls goalie and ex-Cobras Kevin Lalande. Kevin watched the Cobras game against Quinte, and afterward visited with the team in the dressing room. He talked about what it took to get to the OHL, and how his life has changed since moving to Belleville. He then invited the boys to visit the Bulls facilities in the Yardman Arena. He showed us the weight room, the equipment room and the dressing room. I think all the Cobras agree that every dressing room should be like that of the Bulls' - with a big screen TV, stereo and wall-to-wall carpet. Thanks, Kevin, for taking the time to show us around!

    Minor Bantam






























    The Cobras Minor Bantam AA team went to Mississauga last weekend (Nov. 19-20-21) to play in the Mississauga Hornets Fall Classic Tournament. The Cobras did very well again winning their 3rd tournament of the season.

    In their first game, the Cobras won the game by a score of 7-2 over Peterborough . In their second game, the Cobras defeated Kingston by a score of 8-0. Alexandre Simard was named player of this game.

    In the final game of the round-robin, the Cobras defeated the Mississauga Jets by a score of 5-0 to qualify for the semi-final. Daniel Burley was named player of the game.

    The Cobras went on to win the semi-final against Ottawa by a score of 4-1. Sébastien Goulet received the player of the game award.

    In the final, the Cobras defeated the Mississauga Hornets by a score of 6-4. Julien Joseph was named player of the game.

      Cobras Storm Toronto
    Toronto













































































    Three Cobras teams went to Toronto on the weekend of November 12-14, posting a combined 7-4-2 record in two separate tournaments.

    PeeWee Minor AA
    The PeeWee Minor team, defending champions in the Mississauga North Stars Pre-Christmas Classic, opened strongly on Friday in with a 4-1 win over the Darien (Illinois) Huskies despite missing two players with injuries and having a third player sick with the flu. In their second game, the Cobras defeated the Newmarket Redmen 4-1, even they were outshot 24-14. Eric Rivard kept the Cobras in the game with a strong effort in the second period, turning away 11 of 12 shots he faced. The Cobras sealed the win with two unanswered goals in the third period. Late Saturday afternoon the Cobras faced off against the Copper Cliff Redmen, winning by a 4-2 margin. Derek Roy led the way with a goal and three assists while linemate Kevin Tansey had three points.

    In the semi-final on Sunday the Cobras faced the Seaway Valley Rapids. In their first meeting of the season, the teams played a scoreless tie well into the third period, until the Cobras got on the scoresheet with just under four minutes left in the game. Cédric Labelle added an insurance marker a minute and a half later, and Philippe Ménard added an empty-netter. Eric Rivard recorded the shutout.

    In the final, the Cobras played Newmarket again, but the tank was empty. The Redmen jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, and the Cobras were unable to get on the board until late in the second period when Derek Roy scored on a penalty shot. The game ended 3-1. Congratulations to Newmarket on a well deserved win.


    The PeeWee Minor Cobras brought home trophies for their strong performance in the Mississauga North Stars Pre-Christmas Classic, where they went 4-1, losing to Newmarket in the tournament final.                                                                                     


    Atom AA
    Atom AA also played in the Pre-Christmas Classic. The Cobras faced the Stallions in their first game, which ended in a 0-0 tie. Next up was a strong team from Copper Cliff. It was a great game with the Cobras leading 1-0 most of the way. Final score was 3-0 Cobras. In the final game of the round robin the Cobras took on the Toronto Young Bruins, again winning by a 3-0 score. Four Ottawa area teams made the semi-finals, and it was our luck to come up against Seaway Valley - a team we are very familiar with. Again, a good game, but this time the Cobras came up short and Seaway Valley was victorious 4-2. Congratulations to goalies Alexandre Lefebvre and Kevin Martin who did not let in a goal in the round robin - it was not easy as they faced some good shots. Solid play by the defence all tournament long certainly helped.


    PeeWee Major AA
    The Major PeeWee Cobras also spent the weekend in Toronto, playing in the Shanahan International AAA Hockey Tournament. The Cobras got off to a slow start, losing their first game to Belle Tire, 5-3 in a game that the boys agree they would like to have back. Goalie Maxime Bedard was the player of the game. Next up, a 9-0 win over Exeter Freeze, a US-based team. Sebastien Boucher scored a hat trick for the Cobras and Marc-Andre Quann was player of the game. Francis Ménard was selected as player of the game in the Saturday morning game, a 2-2 tie against Rochester Americans. The final game was against a very strong London Knights AAA club and the Cobras rose to the occasion. Despite being outshot badly, the Cobras did not give up and made it a difficult victory for London.  Final score was 3-0 with player of the game honors going to Patrick Martin who faced almost 40 shots.  A solid effort by the Cobras against a very good opponent - London went on to the tournament finals.


    All told an excellent showing for the Cobras in the provincial capital. Thanks to the organizers of both tournaments.

      Pouliot has NHL scouts excited already TSN




      October 13th, 2004 - TSN.ca

    National Hockey League scouts are excited because it's not very often a player comes along out of the blue to turn heads the way Benoit Pouliot of the Sudbury Wolves is turning heads. A month ago, most NHL scouts had never heard of the kid; now they're suggesting he has an excellent shot at being an elite top 10 pick in this year's draft, tucked somewhere behind the really big names like Sidney Crosby and Vancouver Giants' forward Gilbert Brule.   more...
