No division is cuter to watch than the 8U division and no players improve more in a season than those playing 8U. The transformation is really incredible. How quickly it happens makes this the hardest division to predict and with so many new players it makes parity that much harder to accomplish.
Although there were 2 teams that clearly were a little better in the standings that did not take away from all of the fun the 8U players had (which is why we are here in the first place).
In the semifinals the favored Ducks beat the Kings 11-5 and the favored Oilers beat the Golden Knights 7-4. In the final the Oilers took the crown upsetting the Kings 5-3.
The wins and losses won't be remembered as much as the new friendships, their first game, their first goal or their first save.
Great job coaches!
