Kevin Tansey hits Senators camp SPORTS

OTTAWA | Kevin Tansey is knocking on the Ottawa Senators door. Early in his hockey career the former Ham- mond athlete played for the Clarence Sena- tors back in 1999. Now the big defenceman has his eye on a place on the Ottawa Sena- tors NHL bench. Tansey attended by invitation at the Sen- ators’development camp earlier this month in Kanata. “It was a big thrill to attend the NHL camp of the team that I grew up cheering for,”Tan- sey said after the camp session was ended. He was invited to the Senators camp as an undrafted player. Right now he plays for the NCAA Clarkson Golden Knights in Potsdam,

New York state. Tansey started in hockey with the Clarence CreekMinor Hockey Asso- ciation before graduating up to the AA East- ern Ontario Cobras, then the AAA Eastern Ontario Wild later on. Before he left Canada in 2011 for studies at Clarkson University on an athletic scholarship, Tansey skated two seasons with the Cumberlan Grads “A” club. “This was my second NHL camp,” Tansey said, regarding his stint at the Senators development session. “So I felt a lot more prepared, a lot more confident. I wasn’t as nervous as when I attended the Leafs’ camp as an 18-year-old three years ago. I’m going to keep working hard to reach my goal of playing in the NHL.”

Tansey hams it up after his team wins the 3x3 tournament at the Ottawa Senators development camp. The 6’ 3” defenceman scored three goals in the tournament, including two game winners, as his team posted a 4-1-1 record

LAVAL | They ran, they scored, they went two for two in soccer action. The Rockland Knights U13 boys soccer squad tilted the field in their favour at the annual Ottawa Icebreakers tournament

earlier this spring. Then they crossed the Ottawa River into Québec to hammer the competition at the Laval International. The Knights returned home with gold medals around their necks after shutting out the FC Trois-Lacs three-zero in the final match of the Laval tournament. Rockland charged through the competition, allow- ing just the one goal past out of five games played for an undefeated tournament streak. This year’s Knights U13 team includes Jes- se Norton, Liam Kurz, Sean Palmer, Zachary Bergeron, Logan MacDonald, Josh Green, Ethan Donald-Skinner, Alexandre Cardinal, Jacob Bélanger, Olivier Langlois, Benoît Ra- cette, Cale Botha, Félix Brasseur, Fred Gag- nier, Jacob Langlois, Maxxim Wolfe, Steve Kurz, Sheena Norton, Mike Schubert, and Evan Skinner.
