This is the favorite part of going to the hockey games when during intermissions the kids played a friendly 5-minute game. I specially like to watch kids that are really little (the Mites 8 years and under). Some of them already showed talents with their skating, passing the puck and making fancy moves when trying to score. We laughed when they fell down but knowing that I could not possibly stand up, let alone skate around the rink like these kids. One time we all cheered for a player who scored two goals and kept saying, "He was good", until the end when the player took off the helmet, it was a girl :)
There are five divisions in the youth leagues - Mites 8 years and under; Squirts for 9-10 years old kids; Pee Wee 11-12 years old; Bantam for 13-14; and Midgets for 15, 16 & 17 years old.
