Maple Leafs Hot Stove has been approached by a parent of my Nephew’s Hockey Team seeking out a team sponsor(s). After speaking with Alec, we thought it would be a cool idea to see if the MLHS community would like to join in and sponsor the North Toronto Tyke Select Team.
We will feature a write up on the progress of the team and players, as provided, and we can track the players here. Obviously, we’ll respect the young player’s anonymity and follow them with last names only or in a similarly anonymous way. Alec and I have started the bidding off and hope that you can join in and help some young players enjoy the gift of playing hockey, while making sure that none of them become: A) Montreal Canadiens fans or B) Ottawa Senators fans.
We hope you will join in and share in their joy as we track the season of the young 6 year olds. Follow along while they learn the game, make friends and create lifelong memories.
Every little bit helps, and no donation is too small.
***We are hoping to sponsor the away jerseys for the team, with the MLHS logo on it. ***
Hey,maybe we can get some ice with the Tyker's once the sponsorship's set and watch them beat Phook up the ice!
Good job Dec...missed that it was your gig
former Toronto Marlie Ryan Hamilton got put through an arena zomboni door in todays Jets/Oilers game
Current Cap Space $1 ,996 (13F-7D-2G)
+Raymond at $925
+Devane at $701 same as Frazrer McClaran
=13F and $1620 cap space
+ Bodie or Brennan
Liles waived worst case and no one picks up and we gain only $950 on cap
=6D and $2,757 cap Space to sign Franson to go to 7D (if Raymond rumour of $925 is accurate)
IF Franson won't do $2,757 for 2 yr-Cowen got $4.1 for 4yr)---somehow get Calgary or the Ducks to trade for Franson if we take $1.0 back in salary and even add in a prospect maybe--or do the Minny deal proposed by Cameron
How big is this MLHS logo going to be? And does this mean we'll have a bunch of 6 year olds joining the community and posting here?
This is a nice idea Alec and I'll gladly contribute
Just a suggestion for next year if you are still so inclined
There are programs for kids that cant afford proper equipment that are excellent to support
The group travels around to everything from large second hand sales to Sporstcheck/National buying up used skates etc for peanuts to help get kids on the ice
From experience,there are always a couple of kids on each team where you know Mom/Dad can barely afford to pay the dues,and it shows in undersized,unsharpended skates, pads, helmets etc
I keep an Edge Again/hand sharpener on hand for these types who often show up with burred blades,and try to hustle equipment wherever possible to get them up to speed... and safe
We also raise funds to sponsor a Christmas Family every year where I get to make my speech reminding how lucky they all are
Anyway,great job and food for thought!
I was speaking to a guy the other night who's kid is 6 and they have a 103 games lined up this year so far and they play every single weekend. Crazy. My first year of hockey I probably played 26 games of organized hockey and about 50 games of pond hockey.
Half way to our goal --> MLHS Wants To Sponsor A Tyke Team: http://mapleleafshotstove.com/2013/09/17/mlhs-wants-to-sponsor-a-tyke-team/…

@Loric76 gnight man
@gunner_36 friends for your sister? :)
@gunner_36 lol, we already have a bunch of 6 year olds posting here from time to time, or so it feels like on occasion : p
They have to get tattoos :)
@Uncle Otis That's awesome. We should fund raise for that in the future. Send me the information some time.
@Uncle Otis awesome idea got a link where people can contribute?
@rustynail this could be a deal where both sides win : )
its that pure spring Buffalo Love Canal water he drinks
@Knights2Leafs he will be sick of it by the time he's 10
@Loric76 maybe that's why its dead :)
@rustynail damn, doesn't enclosed spaces i imagine
@rustynail Well done Dion!
@rustynail Who's the girl ;)
@rustynail Halfway. That's great.
That guy is jacked! lol
Pretty big bedroom widow for a basement :)
You got it boss...makes a big difference for a lot of families
I'm going to have to look into it Rusty..I run into the Barrie guy all the time,but never got the orginization's name.
He's always scoring first loads off the rack with skates etc...buys by the dozen!
@gunner_36 I would much rather have Bernier, so, Thank you Frattin and Scrivens and the 2nd rounder!
Back then I would wake up on my own at 5 am and be dressed with all my gear on and ready to go at 5:30. My dad, not so much.
yeah and I'm still trying to shake the bug before I turn 60. : )
@vaives50 @rustynail I'm sorry I deleted this comment and banned you temporarily.
I thought you shared an IP with a user called Impermium we have been chasing down. HAHA. Turns out it's not even a person, it's LiveFyre's spam service
The girl is a hostage of mine
@vaives50 @rustynail ask the boss :)
more than the 40+ cougars?
I will hopefully see him soon...and do some web sleuthing too
Ill ask for sure
I know their main focus are skates and helmets,the latter being toughest to find
A lot of people do the hand me down pass it forward within their teams/friends,but often that just saves parents $$ who could afford it anyway
You are a brute for punishment!..Ill take the heat and Tims for 100 Alec
Haha..try being a coach and watch the parents warm behind the glass drinking Timmies!
One 6am'er every week and a 7am'er the following up our way
And yes,they suck :)
