If a kid is really good at 10 and continues to improve along with a strong hockey IQ and being an overall athlete they will play high level hockey regardless of the Brick. Why not check stats of how many Brick kids made the NHL or how many like McDavid never even played in the Brick. Brick might be a fun experience but means nothing if the kid will not continue to improve. When the kid is 15 and is not performing at a high level no coach will care about whether he played in the Brick at 10 or not. Let kids develop, have fun and enjoy minor hockey. Very very few will make the NHl.
McDavid said himself that he would've loved to play in the Brick. Obviously it would've had zero impact on him making it or not. But he said his friends who went had a blast and he would've loved to go. They were going on a family vacation the year of the brick.
Could McDavid make the team at age 10? I think it is BS they were going on a family vacation. What family would not have cancelled everything and made the vacation to be across Edmonton and Alberta. Makes no sense.

If you think the brick has any influence on a kids chance of doing something in the game of hockey your delusional. It’s a tournament for 10 year olds, kids develop at different times. The elite players at 10 vs 18 are gonna be different. It’s a great experience for the kids and good hockey but if you think that your kid being in the brick means he has a higher chance at success then any other kid you’re out of your mind.

Not quite sure on that but i appreciate the sentiment. I think the allure of the brick is making the team. If you make a brick team chances are you’re good. There were some kids that stood out way more than others at the brick but the odds are you are talented at hockey if you made a brick team. Does it mean you’re going to the nhl? Of course not. No one has a crystal ball on what will happen with any of these kids but it seems ridiculous to think that the brick kids will all suck by age 18 and these new kids will show up out of no where and dominate.

Going to the brick does mean your kid is good at hockey at the moment. There’s no denying that. End of story.

Great experience, exposure and looks top notch on your instagram and Christmas card. Parents who have devoted this amount of time and money to their child’s athletics will continue to do so, so their children will continue to excel. Especially if they have fundamentals, IQ and access to the best coaching. Congratulations to the kids who played, time will tell where they end up. Best wishes!!!

Right anyone who was at the Brick will likely continue to work on hockey in the years to come. Hockey has changed. It requires so much these days to be good. Hard to start playing at age 11 and 12 and get to the same level that many of these brick kids are at. I dont see it happening these days.

The culture of hockey needs some work, but that’s just the way the world is these days. People prefer to be negative and talk about each other instead of showing support.
Trashing 9 year olds is sad.

not always...throughout my brick experience i heard a lot of dads (and moms) trash talk kids on their own kids team when it came to skills. Asking why are they on the team, they shouldn't be playing. many parents and coaches only wanted the best players out there the whole time...and that seemed to happen with quite a few teams...particularly detroit. Hockey is all about wins these days.

Sounds like there is a whole lot of “I” in team with these people. So many parents think their kid can do it alone. It’s hilarious. The parents are the problem. The kids need to be left out of it.
