Nine Compete in Got Skills Nationals
Ian Gibbons of KHS Ice Arena in Anaheim was the lone winner among the nine competing in the nationals, taking home the Squirt Top Skills Goalie title.
Nine Southern California youth players were among the more than 100 competitors at the 2009 Got Skills Championships, held June 26-28 at the Aviator Sports Complex in New York. Players representing their local NHL teams ranged from twelve states and Canada.

The Got Skills Competition is open to boys and girls ages 9-12. The competition tests skill level in five different categories: Skating, Shooting Accuracy, Hardest Shot, Breakaway Shootout and Goaltending. Participants are divided into 'Travel' and 'House' levels to create the most balanced competitive environment, and there are winners at both levels.
