Landon McIvor is doing some great things between the pipes in the Parkland and all around the province.
The Gilbert Plains native joined the Mallard Peewee Stars over the weekend as they played in the MICEC Annual Indigenous Minor Hockey Tournament at Bell MTS Iceplex in Winnipeg.
McIvor backstopped the Stars' to a second-place finish out of 14 teams. The team came up just short in the finals against a team from Nunavut. Reaching the finals meant the team had to win four games and that's exactly what they did.
"Yeah, it was a really fun experience to play with a new team," said McIvor. "Our team had a bunch of really good puck movers and we all played well together as a team."
Landon is also back home with a fantastic personal accolade. He was named the tournament's Top Goalie.
"It felt really nice to be placed so high because there were so many other good goalies," he added. "I was thinking another prospect ahead of me would win it. It feels really good."
This isn't the first weekend that Landon has helped his team have success. He also helped the Dean Cooley GM Peewee A1's win the Provincial Championships back on March 3.
"I've gained a lot of confidence this season for sure," said McIvor. "I'm feeling good about how everything's going."
"It was great to be part of that experience and winning the provincials was definitely a great moment," he added.
Landon will now make the jump up to Bantam hockey next season where he will look to continue shutting down the door.
