Thank you DANNY WILLIAMS for bringing AHL hockey back to St. John's.
Thank you GLEN STANFORD for putting together a wonderful operating team.
Thank you KEITH McCAMBRIGE, Head Coach for a great coaching job.
Thank you to all IceCaps personnel for a great season.
Congratulations to the St. John's IceCaps for a very successful season!
Finishing first in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference.
Winning rounds one and two of the playoffs.
Selling out every game played at Mile One Centre – regular season and playoffs.
The IceCaps ran into an exceptionally strong Norfolk Admirals team in round three and lost in straight games.
On Monday May 21,the IceCaps and Admirals played to a scoreless tie in regulation time. The Admirals won the game in overtime. This game was playoff hockey at its best. Eddie Pasquale was outstanding for the IceCaps.
On Tuesday May 22 the IceCaps lost 4 – 0 to the Admirals. During this final game of the season the capacity crowd showed its appreciation by giving the IceCaps a standing ovation that started with over 3 minutes left in the game and continued for a full 5 minutes after the game ended.
Atlantic Canadians, Patrice Cormier, Moncton, NB and Jason King, Corner Brook, NL played outstanding hockey in each and every game.
An IceCaps team made up of young men of good character.
Casual chats in the press box with players who were injured or healthy scratches.
These young men were unfailingly courteous and attests to Management's skill in selecting good character players.
Friendships made with fellow media members, including Andy, Darcy and Kevin.
Smiling Jack signing off. See you all in the fall for the 2012-13 season!
SABS Note of Thanks
It may have been the St.John's IceCaps first season - but it certainly wasn't Smiling Jack's first. Truth be told he's had many a fine season both on the ice and in the recliner enjoying the great sport of hockey.
It was however, his rookie season as a reporter and we here at SABS couldn't have been more pleased. He was conscientious, hardworking, dedicated and the best sports reporter an entertainment based magazine style website could ever ask for - the best father too!
So thanks Smiling Jack - for everything - YOU ARE AWESOME!!!... And while this may seem like a last ditch effort to secure your contract for next year - please know I couldn't be more grateful xosb
