When I first came into Fenwick as a freshman, one of the first things I heard about was playing for the Shield. The upperclassmen constantly said it in the locker rooms, whether they were trying to get pumped up before a game or in between periods, or even if they had a bad practice. Playing for the Shield was frankly something that I heard, but didn’t really understand. I thought to myself, “I work my hardest, I play the body, I score points, why do I have to play for some shield on my jersey? How would that benefit me at all? The reason I had all of these doubts about playing for the Shield was because I had no idea what it actually meant. It’s not playing for something stitched into our jerseys, shirts, and hats, and it’s not something that’s supposed to benefit us personally. It’s something much bigger than that, and bigger than ourselves. Playing for the Shield means playing for each other, holding ourselves accountable for the benefit of the team, making sacrifices to win games, picking each other up after a mistake. To be honest, it took 4 years for me to realize this, and it’s because I’ve never played on a team that made me feel this much of an urge to play for anyone but myself. But this year something changed. Maybe it was Coach Lappin’s brutal 60 second drills that brought us together, Coach Bertuca’s passionate pregame speeches, Father Winkels’ screaming to play the body as if someone got shot, or Coach Rooney’s reminders that this is my last year here and the realization that I’m going to miss it more than anything. I see you guys playing for the Shield more and more as we near the end of the season, and I’m blessed to be a part of this team. Some examples are Johnny Metcalf getting to every game in a wheelchair and a bodycast, Pat Walsh working his hardest from freshman to senior year just to make the varsity team, then becoming one of the best players in the league. Thomas Clancy taking and dishing out hit after hit for the benefit of the team even after suffering from some bad concussions over the years, and all of the underclassmen stepping up in the postseason to help us win games. This year has been by far my favorite year of hockey and I owe all to you guys. You’ve made me proud to be a Fenwick Hockey player. I’d like to thank you, but above all I’d like to thank the coaching staff, managers, and all the parents for making this season possible.

Tommy Lattner to score for JV White!
On Sunday, February 28, in a defensive gem by D-men Nolan Davis, Ben Brown, Mikey Munoz and Alex Georgopulos, Goalie Joe Schmid stopped all 19 shots fired by the visiting Spartans to lead the team into the Hayes Championship Series. Tommy Lattner, on a sweet feed from Nolan Davis, roofed the game winner early in the 2nd Period. Alex Georgopulos, with assists from Ben Cappelli and Sal Siriano, netted one early in the 3rd period to ease the pressure. Late in the game, Cappelli scored unassisted to seal the win!
Fenwick Girls Goalie Frankie Flores Named to 2016 Blackhawk Alumni All Star Team!
Fenwick senior goaltender Frankie Flores was named a member of the 2016 Blackhawk Alumni All Star team by the Chicago Blackhawk Alumni Association!
The team is selected by the league’s varsity coaches and members of the Blackhawk alumni, and is based on outstanding performance throughout the 2015-16 season. Frankie is among a select group of players named to this team: both teams (boys’ and a girls’) consist of three forwards, two defensemen and one goalie.
As a part of this recognition, Frankie will attend the annual Keith Magnuson Scholarship Luncheon where she will be presented an award from the alumni to celebrate her accomplishments as a high school hockey player in Illinois. At the luncheon, she will meet current Blackhawk players and management, former players, past scholarship recipients, and many Chicago business leaders. She is also invited to media day at the United Center to attend a Blackhawk pre-game skate, lunch and tour.
Trent Leslie will continue to be considered for college scholarships in the 2016 National Merit Program. Congratulations to you on this significant achievement!

In an effort to help control inappropriate spectator behavior, the following AHAI rule is effective immediately.
A game will be stopped by on-ice officials when the parents/spectators displaying inappropriate or disruptive behavior interfere with other parents/spectators or the game. The on-ice officials will identify violators to the coaches for the purpose of removing parents/spectators from the parents’/spectators’ viewing and game area. Once removed, play will resume. Lost time will not be replaced. Violators will incur a minimum mandatory 3-game suspension from that team’s games and may be subject to further disciplinary action by the local governing body.
The reasons for this necessary minimum 3-game suspension rule are simple; last season there was a marked increase in parents’/spectators’ behavior being out of control. These behaviors included verbal and physical altercations with officials, players and other spectators. Additionally clubs/teams that have a responsibility to help control and penalize these behaviors were asking for guidance from AHAI.
No matter why a spectator is asked to leave, the minimum suspension is 3 games. There is emphasis on a minimum of 3 games.
Here is how the reporting system works:
An official will file an electronic “Incident Report” detailing the official’s version of the occurrence with the AHAI R&E Committee. The Committee sends the report to the spectator’s club in order for the club to conduct an investigation. Upon completion of the spectator’s club investigation (that should include talking to the accused spectator) the investigating club will report back to the AHAI R&E Committee for final approval of the minimum 3-game suspension or any additional imposed suspension.
This is a very simple rule. Any spectator asked to leave a rink by an official or by the rink personnel will automatically miss a minimum of 3 games. No questions asked.
