Suns, All-Stars
enjoy a fun skate

Post-XMas hockey, Blades next

A good-natured ice hockey exhibition on the night after Christmas was just the right tonic for some old timers and some up-and-comers Friday.

The Sun Valley Suns hosted a pick-up group comprised of Suns Hall of Famers and kids who grew up in the Sun Valley Junior Hockey system.

Having great fun coaching the All-Stars last weekend were professional golfers Davis Love III and Fred Couples, in Sun Valley for the Christmas holiday.

Lending star presence to the occasion were professional golfers Davis Love III and Fred Couples, Christmas holiday vacationers who coached the Celebrity All-Star sextet.

The final score favored the Suns 8-5, but it was a great way to spend an evening. The Old Timers attempted, often in vain, to move the puck out of the zone while the young bucks showed their speed and skills.

Ryan McDonald, Scott Winkler, Justin Taylor, Joey Sides and Blake Jenson were the goal scorers for the All-Stars.

Collecting All-Star assists were Cody Lampl (4), Taylor (2) and Bobby Noyes. All-Star goalie Billy Cook stopped 47 of the 55 shots he faced.

Other All-Stars were Tate Mills, Dave Hutchinson, Phil Hebert, Glenn Hunter, John Burke, Harry Weekes, Tim Jeneson, Mats Wilander, Pete Prekeges, Zac Crist, Peter Whitehead and Zac Crist.

Vilnis Nikolaisons (3 points), Paul Baranzelli and John Stevens accounted for two goals apiece for the Suns, while John Miller (3 points) and Caleb Baukol added single goals. Jamie Ellison and Ryan Enrico had two assists each.

The Suns (2-0) play two games against the Boise Blades Friday and Saturday, Jan. 2-3. Opening faceoffs are at 7 p.m. at Sun Valley Skating Center.
