Should parents know better? Or is hockey becoming a “soft sport”?

Should parents know better? Or is hockey becoming a “soft sport”?

The debate about aggression in hockey sparks some ongoing debates about what is just part of the game, and what pushes things too far. Should fighting be allowed? Should we be of the mentality “what happens on the ice stays on the ice”, sometimes meaning acts of aggression or violence that would be punishable by law off the ice are allowed on the ice all in the name of hockey? Recently Josh Maguire of the Peterborough Petes, an Ontario Hockey League junior team, received a five game suspension for fighting (with an opponent who did...

Happy 4 Year Anniversary Canadian Hockey Moms!

Happy 4 Year Anniversary Canadian Hockey Moms!

Happy Anniversary Canadian Hockey Moms! Can you believe that it was exactly four years ago today that we launched our first webpage, then called “Hockey Mom in Canada” along with our Facebook page and Twitter. It seemed timely to launch in February 2010 because it was during the Vancouver Winter Olympics, just before we went for Gold in the men’s game. We launched the page expecting that it could become big eventually. In the first week we had 120 members. In the first year, 1,200. And 4 years later, we have over 17,000 fans...

Goodyear Receives 2013 Women’s Choice Award

Canadian Hockey Moms do a lot of driving….in the snow. Many of you know that for the last two years I have been fortunate to work with Goodyear, a company I believe in, because I have felt the difference that Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter Tires have made on my winter drive. I trust Goodyear tires and I have confidence that they will help me get my family to, and from the rink safely. That’s why I am so pleased, but not surprised, that Goodyear has been awarded the 2013 Women’s Choice Award for Best in Automotive Premium Brand...

Hockey Moms – Keep Those Questions Coming!

I am amazed that we are coming up on our four year anniversary of our Facebook page and website www.CanadianHockeyMoms.ca. As a community of Hockey Moms, we have grown our site from the first day, 22 Fans, to over 15,600 across the world. There are few subjects that we have not touched on with our best questions coming directly from you, the moms. Last night I posted a question, “Is it appropriate to cheer when the other team gets a penalty? In an atom game? Or at any level?” This was not a new question and similar to one that I...

Enter Your Stories for Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada!

Today is Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada! And if you are a Hockey Mom, chances are that today you are involved in some type of hockey – in a rink, on a pond, or volunteering somewhere across Canada. For me, Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada has become a chance to celebrate with hockey families and the hockey community the great bond that we have developed through the game we all love, and to reflect on the great memories we share, and all of those who work so hard to make hockey happen for our kids. This year, Scotiabank Hockey Club is...

Sending Hockey Mom Vibes to Victim of Arena Assault

Sending Hockey Mom Vibes to Victim of Arena Assault

Most Hockey Moms think of arenas as safe places. Places where we take our children to play hockey, where our hockey families keep an eye on siblings running around the lobby, and where our community comes together to celebrate wins and losses. So when incidents happen – like the random violent attack on a Hockey Mom in a parking lot in Surrey, BC happen –  it sends a collective shudder through hockey types across Canada. According to a report in the Vancouver Sun,  Julie Paskall was attacked outside an arena while her son...
