Riley (left), Gavin (center) and Wyatt (right) make up a 1-2-3 punch for the Brainerd Warrior PeeWee AA team.

I got a chance to meet one of the more unique hockey families in Minnesota a couple weeks ago while in Hibbing.  The Andres family comes complete with 5 hockey players.  One Squirt, three PeeWees, and a Bantam.  That is a lot of hockey for two parents to digest….much less pay for and transport. An honor to meet them.  This week instead of one player we highlighted the middle three Andres’, the triplets.  Take a peak into their hockey minds.
