Tonight's skill competition went for about an hour and a half and thought it was very well presented. With no Vipers hockey for the past two weeks, this was a great chance to get out and watch the boys show off their skills. Thanks to Vipers assistant coach Kevin Pederson for the idea-putting this event on. This was a great idea and I hope the Vipers do this or something like this again next year. I think with some advertising and maybe a 7pm start time, you may have got more fans out.
