Goodbyes are Hard but Future is Bright

This time of year is always the hardest for fans, billet families, volunteer, teammates, director, coaching staff, sponsors, and parents. To say goodbye to the 20 year graduates is the toughest part of hockey as they finish their AJHL career with the Drayton Valley Thunder. The friendships that were made during the time these players have been here in Drayton Valley are so strong that it is impossible not to shed a tear as they left the ice on the final game night. But, as we say good bye to them and their parents, we can only wish for future meetings down the road and wish the players good luck in whatever the future holds for these five young men: #1 Marc Olivier Daigle, #9 Jamie Waddington, #16 Ty Bettac, #17 Trevor Poirier and #27 Hayden Dawes. Good luck in your desired goals in life!
