Adult Player of the Month
Lakewood ICE’s Player of the Month is Kyle Inlow! Kyle has been playing at our facility since 2017 where he first joined our Rookie League. After a few seasons of Rookie, Kyle and a bunch of the participants who joined from Learn to Play created their own team to move up into our Tin Division. He is currently skating out on that team named the Cluster Pucks. A few weeks ago, his goalie decided he wanted to skate out so he decided to swap gear and get in net. He ended up winning his game 7-6! From there, he decided to buy a complete set of goalie gear and sign up for our Summer Rookie League as goalie while also skating out in Tin! Kyle has shown great dedication to the sport and mastering his skills – he is even a seasoned veteran to our Adult Development Skills Class that we offer on Monday nights for the last TWO YEARS! We love to see him out on the ice every week! Congratulations Kyle!
