Mark Murphy 450Mark Murphy, one of our very own players, is heading to the Home of Hockey, Canada, for 1 year. Mark, 16, will be heading to Montreal, a city he visited earlier in 2017 when the Flying Ducks team visited the city with almost 50 people. Mark had arrived in advance of the team’s arrival on St Patrick’s Day where he was living the life of a Canadian hockey player. Mark also didn’t neglect his schooling. He attended a local school (North Star Academy, in Laval) and developed wonderful relationships with not only his teammates from Somang Hockey but also his school mates; many of whom were saddened to see him depart in late March.

Mark started skating in Skate parks when he was 9 year’s old because he had some problems with his feet. His tendons weren’t growing so the doctors advised he try roller skating to help to stretch them. Fantastic advice.  Mark’s sister, Kerri, was doing figure skating at Castleknock on Ice, and one morning he was asked by Aisling Daly, President of the Flying Ducks Ice Hockey Club, to try Ice hockey. Mark loved it from the start. He showed a decent skill level for a first timer. Mark had tried Soccer, Gaelic football and hurling but never kept any real interest. “Mark loves being on ice and he sometimes gets a bit passionate about the game” said his proud dad, Darren. Mark’s passion is what drives him and greatly benefits his abilities. Mark loves learning about the game and passing on what he learns to his teammates in the Flying Ducks, particularly the junior players. Aisling commented that, "Mark is a talented and passionate player who will make a fantastic impact on the world of Irish Ice Hockey given the chance".

This weeks puck goes to...

 

Every week the Flyers will honour a Junior/Beginner with a puck.


The puck will be presented by the coaches, at the end of each weeks training session. There's a wide range of criteria, as to why the puck is given to a particular player, i.e. he/she learned new skill(s), he/she put the most effort in, he/she helped out during the training etc.


Keep up the hard work, Junior/Beginner Flyers!
