In hope that the Central soon would be theirs.

The players all hustled, so the coach said.

And visions of trophies danced in their heads.

There’s Rick with the whistle and Scott in the mix,

Breaking news from Canada and around the world sent to your email, as it happens.

These men had just settled in with a roster to fix.

When out on the Donald there arose such a clatter,

Fans rose from their seats to see what was the matter.

Away to the glass, they flew like a flash

The goals, they were coming, it was a glorious bash.

As the forwards all scored, it was quite a show

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,

But a goalie, called Bucky, he made the fans cheer.

But there were others too, that could make this team go,

That young guy named Josh could put on a show,

He certainly put other teams in a trance.

Yes this is a team, that this town can enjoy,

More rapid than eagles, these Jets they do fly,

On the PP and PK… to make other teams cry,

Now, Brenden, Now Adam, Now Dylan and Sam…

On Connor, On Wheeler, and the Jets to a Man

To the top of the standings, to the top of the league,

Now skate away, skate away, skate away team.

It truly has been a wonderful time of year for this team. It makes you think, there just might be a Santa Claus.

Merry Christmas, everyone. Happy Holidays!
