High School Hockey
The governing body of local high school hockey is having a change of heart after backlash to the decision to ban the National Anthem from pregame ceremonies.
It is a controversial move by the organization that oversees local high school hockey. With ice time so expensive, and in order to keep the games running on time, the league commissioner has suggested doing away with the National Anthem. And the resulting backlash has been fierce.
I was very impressed with the effort and compete level in Tuesday’s 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres. However, as well as they played on Tuesday was as poorly as they played during Saturday afternoon’s 3-0 shutout loss to the Habs.
