    Oh Daniel! I got tears in my eyes while I read your post. What an exciting experience for you. The best part, though, was how well you described the experience. I first read this on my iPad and didn’t have a chance to see the video. I could vividly picture your whole journey in your blog post. I’m so glad that your Mom entered your name and that you got chosen to be the Enmax Kid. Have a wonderful holiday!

    This was an absolutely amazing experience for me… watching you from the stands! I can’t even imagine what it would have been like for you!!

    Your writing clearly shows not only your passion and love for the sport of hockey, but also your true gratefulness for such a great experience. I was so proud to see you out on the ice, skating around before the players joined you, and standing on the blue line for O Canada.

    Thank you for sharing your experience and thoughts in a great blog post. Awesome job on the PhotoPeach, too! I’m very proud of you!

    Hi Daniel,

    Mr. Couros sent me your post, because we spoke last year on Skype in Ms. Cameron’s class. Wow! I am so glad that he did. Your experience is definitely a lifetime memory, one you will cherish forever, but as an English teacher I want to comment on how well written this post is.

    You have a future in writing for sure. Keep up the great work!

    Sharing our experiences through blogging brings people closer and you are doing a great job!

    Wow – what a great experience. Thank you Daniel for sharing your story. You must be the envy of a million other kids who would have loved to be in your skates!!! When you are playing in the NHL remember to continue to write! You obviously have many gifts – a second career as a sports writer would be exciting!

    That was the best Daniel. I would want to do that too because I play hockey. Was it fun? Maybe we will one day play for an NHL team. Good luck!!

    Wow!! What an amazing experience! You sure put a lot of effort into your writing. Your writing in your blog post was awesome. It must have been very cool to be on the ice and next to the all of the players. We would be nervous too!

    Great job! Keep on working toward your dreams!

    Mr. Couros it is really hard to pick but I think it was communicating with them on the ice.
