Whitby was, at that time, one of the smallest, if not the smallest, AAA centres in Ontario. But with Liam Reddox, Steven Seedhouse and Brandon Davis returning to their own age group after a year of minor novice AA, plus (our son) Mike and others moving up from the Select 7s, Coach John Velacich’s team was competitive with most of the teams they faced. A big part of the reason was Liam Reddox, who if he wasn’t the most dominant eight-year-old in southern Ontario was awfully close to it. Everything Liam did was at a higher level than everyone else. He was a very strong skater, extremely athletic, and his puck-handling skills, his shot and his competitive instincts were off the charts. It was difficult to imagine Liam not growing up to be a professional hockey player and that is, in fact, what he is. A fourth-round pick of the Edmonton Oilers in 2004, Liam scored his first NHL goal for the Oilers on Nov. 15, 2008. Unlike some of the stories you hear about kids who dominate when they’re very young and are never heard of by the time they get to peewee, well, that’s not Liam.
