Hakuna Matata

 

This was Luke’s favorite song form the Lion King, it means no worries for the rest of your days.

 

Luke was born November 2nd, 1987and started playing hockey in 1991.  His three older brothers Kyle, Adam and Cody were his biggest fans.

 

The next few years Luke became known for his “sweeping turns to build up momentum to charge into the opposition territory”.

 

The highlight of Luke’s Novice career was a playoff game in Mitchell when he scored five goals.

 

Luke was keen to play hockey and his teammate Brett Bean described him this way “Eat, Sleep and play hockey that was Luke”.

 

If you didn’t see him play hockey on the ice at the Blyth Arena you would see him playing in the Lobby.

 

Luke died in a bicycle-truck accident on April 26, 1997.  He is missed by everyone at the Blyth Arena.

 

Sweaters for the Blyth Novice team with a gold cross were donated by Luke’s parents Ken and Diane in memory of Luke.

 

Each year a trophy is presented to the most keen and dedicated player on the Novice Team in memory of Luke.

 

This year’s recipient for the Luke Anderson award is:
