A local hockey team has scored a record-setting championship win.

Not only did the Heritage-Victoria Hawks 11 A3 hockey team win all 18 games in their regular season, they also broke a new hockey record in the St. James area.

Cian Shaw, an 11-year-old Grade 6 student at Bruce Middle School, said the record for hockey in the St. James catchment area was 17-0, but the team of 14 boys, all 11-years-old and younger, have broken that record this past season.

"It feels really awesome," Shaw said.

The Hawks, who play in the St. James-Assiniboia Minor Hockey Association in the minor peewee division, started the season in November and ended in March.

Shaw mostly played the left wing position, but sometimes switches to right wing or defence.

"I think I played really good this year," Shaw said of his individual performance. "I had more goals than I expected this year."

Shaw said that he scored 27 goals in the regular season this year, while he scored four goals in the last season.

"My strength is going to the net and shooting the puck," Shaw said. "My weakness is skating backwards."

During the playoffs, Shaw said he scored about four or five goals.

Shaw said this is his second year playing hockey.

"I just like to play the game and to meet new teammates," Shaw said.

The championships also involved a bit of fun on the bench. Shaw’s mom, Christie, told The Metro head coach Bill Muloin dyed his beard pink for the event, fulfilling a bet with his team that he’d do so if they made it to the championships.

Now that the season is over, Shaw isn’t about to stop being active. In addition to hockey, Shaw also plays football and soccer. Next year, Shaw has his sights on advancing his skills, as he will be turning 12 years old.

"I’m hoping to play (on the) Heritage Hawks A2 (division team) next year. I want to try to make A2," Shaw said.
