Same Old Story

The Dutchmen go streaking again - this time nine straight - but can they keep it going?

It’s all too familiar. The Kitchener Dutchmen are atop the standings and, like last season, the team is riding an impressive winning streak.

A 6-5 wild west win over the Guelph Hurricanes on Tuesday night at Kinsmen Arena was the ninth straight win by the Dutchmen, a team that knows the highs and lows of streaks perhaps a little too intimately.

The Dutchmen went on a Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League record-setting 25-game winning streak last year, ending just before Christmas last season.

While the streak may be eerily familiar, it is a much different team.

New Coach, New Team

Coaching carousel stops on Todd Hoffman, as he looks to get Dutchmen back on track this season

By Adam Jackson (Kitchener Post staff)

With a new skipper at the helm and changes-a-plenty, the Kitchener Dutchmen are set to look like a brand new team.

Todd Hoffman has taken the call as head coach of the Dutchies, returning to the position he last held for the 2009-2010 season.

Hoffman, the father of Ottawa Senators forward Mike Hoffman, says he originally stepped away from the position to mentor his son, but he now feels comfortable to take the position on full time.

"Everything worked out great for him,” said Hoffman. "When he was younger, he was looking for some guidance and wanted to make sure everything was lining up the way it should for him."

25 Games in a Row!  WAY TO GO!

On Friday the 13th in Stratford the Dutchies won their 25th game in a row setting the GOJHL record, matching the Jr B record set over 25 years ago


Kitchener Dutchmen 2013-14 All Stars

With a league leading 25 game win streak this season, the Kitchener Dutchmen have proven that they have their eyes on a Cup this year.  Playing nearly two months without a loss, and touting the lowest number of goals against in the GOJHL, the team has managed to impress in all aspects of the game, and they are being rewarded for it with 6 players getting the nod to play in the GOJHL All Star Game on Sunday, December 29, 2013.

 

Marc Williams has earned Midwestern Conference Goaltender of the Month honors two months in a row now, winning all 14 of the games he started in October and November.  Leading the league in shut outs, and going undefeated so far in overtime and shoot outs, Williams has defined himself as a top goaltender in Jr. B hockey and will be partnering Caledonia’s Colin Furlong on Team Vaive at the All Star Game.

John Divo is having a breakout year with the Dutchmen, having nearly matched his entire offensive totals from last season already.  The large defender picked up Defenseman of the Month this October and has proven himself as an offensive defenseman, leading all Kitchener blue liners in points so far. This is Divo’s first year representing his team at the All Star Game.

Clayton Greer is the Dutchmen’s only roster member to have won the Sutherland Cup, and since joining the team from Elmira last season has been one of Kitchener’s top defenseman. A key component of the team’s power play and clear leader on the ice, Greer can be counted on to put points on the board and while remaining one of the best defensive players in the league.

Keli Grant is the only Dutchmen player who played in last year’s All Star game, where he picked up two assists in his team’s 7-5 victory. Keli is once again leading Kitchener in scoring, and is on top of the GOJHL leaderboard as well with 4 game winning goals, and 15 multipoint games to date.  Grant has nearly a goal a game, and is well on his way to surpassing his point total from last season.

Brett Clampitt has picked up his point production as Captain of the Kitchener Dutchmen, having nearly matched last year’s totals already.  Brett has scored 4 game winning goals so far this season, also picking up points on the power play and penalty kill. Clampitt currently leads his team in assists, and will be competing in his first GOJHL All Star Game in final year of Jr. B hockey.

Keegan Calder is also competing in his first GOJHL All Star Game in his fourth year with the Kitchener Dutchmen. One of the hardest working players at both ends of the ice, Keegan's speed and natural hockey sense often lead to scoring chances.


Congrats to the Kitchener Dutchmen October Conference

Kitchener Jr. B Dutchmen Hockey Team
Building partnerships is the theme that characterized the past year for the Kitchener Jr. B Dutchmen.  In an effort to move out of the shadow of the OHL Kitchener Rangers, the Dutchmen began the year by asking how they could be more involved in the community.  This led them into many outreach activities that included a successful Movember campaign supporting Prostate Cancer Awareness.  Zehrs Markets, one of the team's sponsors provided space for this initiative.

As Christmas approached the Dutchmen worked alongside rivals to support the Salvation Army Toy Drive and then helped pack hampers at the Salvation Army warehouse.  The new year saw team members barbequing on a cold January day to raise money for the PC Children's Charity.  Partnering with Aeropostale, the Dutchmen ran a Teens for Jeans campaign.  In only three games seventy nine pairs of jeans were donated on behalf of the Dutchmen, a proud accomplishment, as their team brought in the most donations to that date.  In addition to this volunteer work in the community, the Dutchmen opened their dressing room and their hearts to KMHA Pre-Tyke players.  They provided dressing room visits, post-game meetings and mentoring to these young players.  The beneficiaries of their efforts have been many, not the least of whom are themselves.  Building cooperation and team spirit off the ice has improved their game, while raising their profile in the community by providing examples of community spirit, team work and good sportsmanship.

It is an honour for the Awards of Excellence Committee to present the Kitchener Jr. B. Dutchmen, its coaches, players, supporters and many volunteers the Team Category Award in recognition of their commitment to excellence in sport, their many community initiatives and their willingness to mentor young hockey players.
