TSN Update: SLOSH Locks Up Presidents Trophy for the 1st time in Franchise History

Posted: March 2, 2013 by sloshhc in Uncategorized

For the 1st time ever, in this storied franchise’s history; SLOSH Hockey Club has captured the Presidents Trophy in the ORHL. In what many have called a fairytale season, the boys of SLOSH managed to lock this up with one game remaining in the regular season.

Following in almost exact detail to “The Chiefs” from Slapshot, and Mario Lemieux; Veteran SLOSH Captain, credited as the heart and soul of the franchise, used his own money to buy out the financially troubled team.

Ground was broken for the new arena in the off-season, with a rush order for completion for Game 1. Fast track construction enabled this grand engineering feat.

O’Halloran, through his wisdom and guidance, had the foresight to understand that major changes were required in order to make SLOSH a true contender. This was required to change the culture of the team and win back the disenchanted fanbase. As the new GM, Chris is credited with locking up key components to anchor this new winning culture. Through such acquisitions as defensive stalwart Jordan Katsiris, from the Greek Mediterranean League, and convincing Chris Vilone to come out of early retirement it was evident that O’Halloran meant business.

Via intelligent housekeeping practices, Chris also managed to resign RFA Trevor D’Angelo,  last years defensive rookie of the season, leading the league in Fights, Hits and Penalty Minutes. Many skeptics critizised this signing, however O’Halloran knew that truculence and tenacity were the key’s to success for his first season at the helm.

O’Halloran, who gets his hair cut at the same barber shop as Blue Jays GM, Alex Anthopoulos, realized that for true culture change within the organization, he would have to lead by example on the ice as well. Training with Gary Roberts in the off season brought Chris into the best shape of his life for this current season, as evidenced by his increase in goals and assists.  He quarterbacked the powerplay unit to an 88% success rate, 2nd overall in the league.  His leadership on the ice and in the lockerroom was well documented in the HBO series 24/7.  The dramatic turnaround this season has slingshot O’Halloran to the top of many writers MVP candidates list.  He has also been shortlisted for the Vezina after strapping on the pads after goalie Greg Belina fell ill midseason, allowing only 1 goal on 56 shots.

A True Leader. Owner. General Manager, Kapitain. Saint Christopher, we salute you.

TSN, Oakville.
