Our hockey family is saddened with the untimely passing of #27 Brayden Orpana on November 23. Our team has never had to deal with the death of a team member and we are all struggling. Brayden had a smile as wide as the ocean, a heart full of love for his teammates, he loved the game of hockey and was an extreme encourager of all players! He could never get quite enough ice time, always wanting just a little more, just another hour, just another game. His example of persevering through a tough shoulder injury which sidelined him for a while did not dampen his enthusiasm for the game. Already we are feeling the void of his presence, our hearts, thoughts and prayers will continue with Coach Tom, his Dad and his Mom, Jen. Brothers Owen and Devyn were the pride of his life and he loved spending time with them at the rink, on the ice as well as many other sporting activities which he enjoyed. His extended family has our deepest condolences during this time of extreme grief.
