Bummer in Rankin

by Darrell Greer- January 23, 2018

The two Hockey Canada reps, Hockey Canada manager of school programs Pier-Alexander Poulin and instructor Jeff Shepherd, who had such an excellent visit to Naujaat, found the sledding a whole lot tougher in Rankin Inlet, where Mother Nature showed herself to be no fan of the hybrid sport of floorball.

Inclement weather kept Poulin and Shepherd grounded in their hotel room for the two days they were in Rankin, managing to only host one on-ice session for minor hockey players at the arena during their stay.
