DREW GROSS, Stratford Cullitons #22
What I remember about Stratford was coming to the rink,whether it was a regular practice, Friday night game or Saturday morning skate, being so excited to be part of the Cullitons because of the team/family feel. Some of my best years and memories were made with the players and at that rink.
My favourite memory from my time in Stratford would obviously be winning the Cherry Cup as many don’t get to say that and the team and run, we had was surreal. but a small memory I have that always gives me a good chuckle is simply watching game tapes as a team in the dressing room and all the guys going wild for a shift I had blocking a bunch of shots. just the little things we did as a Culliton makes me cherish my time. You can play the game of hockey anywhere but it’s the TEAM you’re on that makes the experience memorable.
