Vintage Video of NHLers Lighting Up Novice

Over the past week, a user on YouTube has been uploading highlights of NHLers in their youth hockey days. More specifically, the footage is from the The Brick Invitational Super Novice Hockey Tournament that takes place annually in Edmonton at the West Edmonton Wall. Just some background info on the tourney, it was created by The Brick's owner, Bill Comrie, back in 1990 and is now one of the biggest hockey tournaments for nine and ten-year-olds. If you know your Canadian businesses then you know that Bill Comrie is the father of Mike Comrie and little Mikey participated in the inaugural tourney (imagine if your Dad created a giant hockey tournament just for you!). The summer tournament has seen many NHLers participate in the event over the years including Steven Stamkos, Jonathan Toews, Dustin Byfuglien, Dion Phaneuf, Brent Seabrook and Jordan Eberle whose highlights you can see below:

Here's Steven Stamkos doing what he does best in 2000:


We were really expecting highlights of a young Stammer ripping some one timers from the faceoff dot.

If we were to ask you what NHLer do you think would have scored the 2000 tournament winning goal in overtime you'd obviously say Jordan Eberle right?


So clutch.

Here's Dustin Byfuglien in '95 dangling and potting some goals:


We heard his incentive for scoring was a chocolate bar for every goal.

Jonathan Toews in 1998 scoring an end-to-end shorthanded beauty:


He had to at least crack a smile after that one, right?

Dion Phaneuf in 1995 wearing a bubble and ripping some clappers from the point:



Couldn't help but laugh when he put one over the glass.

Brent Seabrook stepping into one from the point for a goal:



You know he put his entire 10-year-old body behind that one because he fell down.
