World junior goalie Michael McNiven has had to grow up fast - Chatham Daily News

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

Canada at the world junior selection camp. Circumstances beyond his control dictated a different path to the camp for the 19-year-old goaltender with the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League. McNiven in late November attended the funeral of his birth mother, with whom he had been in contact during the past three years, and only on the phone or through social media. “I flew out to Winnipeg on an off-day and met some new cousins, stayed with them,” McNiven said. “It was a great 12 hours I had there, I got to release a lot of energy that was built up inside and I finally got to let it go. I feel a lot better now and I came back and just tried to play as strong as possible.” McNiven, who was born in Winnipeg, was raised by his paternal grandparents Jim (who passed away in December 2013) and Christine McNiven in Georgetown, Ont., and for the past several years has been building a relationship with his father. There is no bitterness in McNiven, who has had to mature on a sharper curve than most. The hockey road to this camp has had its bumps for McNiven, and those have been overcome. He was passed over in the 2015 NHL draft, but was signed by the Montreal Canadiens three ...

World Jr. camp invitee McNiven riding emotional... - theifp.ca

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Michael McNiven, with his career heading onward and upward. Last Friday night his name was mentioned umpteen times for making big saves during the national TV audience in his Owen Sound Attack’s 3-2 victory in London over the defending Memorial Cup-champion Knights, and yet the home team somehow got the top two stars of the game. He also recently posted proudly on his Twitter account a picture of himself with his high school diploma, achieved six years after he began classes at GDHS. But about a month ago, McNiven received a phone call that sent him reeling. His mother had died in Winnipeg, his birthplace, at age 43. Only, McNiven had never been in contact with his mother until a couple of years ago, when he gave her a call and she began watching some of his games on TV. “It was sudden. I got the call from my father on Nov. 10 that she’d passed away,” said McNiven, not knowing the exact cause of her death. “I didn’t know her that well, but she is still my mother and it does hurt. The first couple of days were really tough and thankfully I’ve had a lot of support from family and friends. You try to keep it aside from the rink and just try to dial down. I know she’s watching over me. This month is important in my career and I needed to play. Just coming to the rink and helping my team win is what I have to focus on.” McNiven attended the funeral in Winnipeg last week and stayed with cousins he’d never met. He was raised by his grandp...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Flyers and Marlboros.  (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...
