DUTCHMEN PREPARING FOR PLAYOFF RUN
By: Shannon Costello - 20140124

When the Kitchener Dutchmen hit the ice for the first time this September, none of them expected the whirlwind of a season to come. But as all the pieces fell into place, it did not take long for the entire GOJHL to realize that this year Kitchener is a serious Cup contender. As at January 23rd, the Dutchmen are at the top of the Midwestern Conference in first place

With a league leading 25 game win streak from September to December, five GOJHL Player of the Month awards – Marc Williams earning the honor for two consecutive months – and six players chosen to play in the All Star Game, the Dutchmen have made headlines all season long.   CONTINUED...

 


All Star John Divo #22 Appreciates Support

John Divo has had an incredible hockey season for the 2013-2014 Kitchener Dutchmen so far, being named to the GOJHL All Star game for the first time in his career, and earning Defenseman of the Month this past October.  His point production has soared as he has become one of Kitchener's highest scoring blue liners, and he has officially made his mark as one of the best defenders in the league.

But the 19 year old Kitchener native has now learned how quickly things turn around.  John was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and started chemotherapy on Christmas Day.

John remains in the hospital as he fights off the disease, but the 6'4, 200lb teenager who always has a smile on his face has a spirit that will never break.

"He's doing good and being positive," Dutchmen captain Brett Clampitt says.

Clampitt and Marc Williams visited John in the hospital this past week, having played in the All Star game John was to take part in as well.

"He really wished he could have been there," Clampitt says. "But he was happy about his jerseys being hung up."

The support of the everyone in  GOJHL, the community and friends of John has been overwhelming during this difficult time.  The Dutchmen will post updates on how to continue showing support to Johno as details become available.

John really appreciated the support he has received so far and his wishes are that people get out and donate blood, if not to help him directly, to help other people in his situation. In the meantime, follow in his footsteps, and stay positive. John Divo pushes hard through every minute on the ice, and will continue to do that in his fight against leukaemia.


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.

Coach Dave Williams will be behind the bench at the All Star game having led Kitchener to first place in the league after taking a year off from coaching last season.  Congratulations and good luck to all the Kitchener Dutchmen representing the team at the All Star game this year!

Kitchener Dutchmen Start Season Strong 
By Shannon Costello

15 games in, and the Kitchener Jr. B Dutchmen are on top of the standings and currently riding a ten game win streak in the Midwestern Conference.

With a penalty kill working at over 85%, two goalies sitting in the top 5 in goals against average and save percentage in the GOJHL and a full roster contributing to give Kitchener the most goals in the conference, the Dutchmen seem unstoppable.

Matt Greenfield, a goalie new to the team, has won all four of his starts and has played 140 minutes straight of shut out hockey. Working tandem with Marc Williams, who backstopped Kitchener in their best season since 2009 last year and has 2 shut outs of his own this season, the goalies are undoubtedly the best duo in the GOJHL.

But goalies don't win the game on their own. The Dutchmen offense has picked up this season as well, starting with the old adage to just put shots on net. Kitchener leads the league in shots taken which is paying off as the team hasn't scored less than 2 goals in a game since September 15 - which was their last loss.

Newly appointed Captain, Brett Clampitt, has carried on his point production from the postseason last year, averaging over a point per game and tallying the Dutchmen's only shorthanded goal so far. Clampitt, who was one of the league's highest in penalty minutes last season, is managing to stay out of the box and his team is now last in the conference in PIM.

Keli Grant continues to lead the Dutchmen in points this year, but since joining the team from the Kitchener Rangers, defenseman Logan Schmidt and forward Kegan Blasby have quickly joined the scoring race.

New head coach, Dave Williams, has made some changes and mixed up the lines from last season, but the team is now showing how effective it is in all aspects of the game. With a start like this, it's clear the Kitchener Dutchmen are set on building from the momentum of last year - and fans are enjoying the show.

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.
