Randall Gelech scored one of the Rockets two goals in the third period to beat Gatineau 2-1 in the tournament final.
"I think I have broken down in tears about three times", Gelech said after the final buzzer sounded. "I never dreamed in a million years that this would ever feel this good. Now that we've done it, it feels like I need to wake up. It feels like a dream," Gelech added.
It was an emotional ending to the season for 19 year-old forward Tyler Mosienko. "I was crying man. When I was skating before the game I had tears coming down. I couldn't even talk. I was choked up and I haven't cried in a little while."
The Rockets went 3 and 0 during the round robin tournament before winning a one goal game in the championship final. Overage goaltender Kelly Guard was named the tournament MVP for allowing three goals in four games.
"I just wanted to have a strong tournament and give the guys a chance to win. I believe together as a team we have done that", a soft spoken Guard said after the game.
