Enormous, 6-foot-5 12-year-old faced with unique struggles in Canadian Peewee hockey league
 
Yet Lavallee isn't an NHL player. In fact, he's not even a college player or a high school player. Rather, Lavallee is the biggest 12-year-old hockey player you or anyone else has ever seen. A native of Sudbury, Ontario, about five hours from Toronto, Lavallee plays for AAA Peewee Nickel City Sons, who stand third in the competitive Ontario Peewee league.
As reported in a terrific feature in the Toronto Star, Lavallee is the top scorer for the Nickel City Sons, which may not come as a surprise given the fact that he's a full foot taller than most other kids on the ice. What is surprising is that while players his size are almost always defenders by trade, Lavallee has insisted on becoming a forward.
As one might expect, Lavallee is expected to be a physical presence on the ice as well. That presents a rather unique problem, since any hits to the head in the minimal contact Ontario league draw a mandatory two-minute penalty.

Brooklyn? No way! Dang right that's big, Nassau Coliseum is a barn and it's gotta' be easier to catch the trains to Brooklyn vs Long Island. They should rename them the 'Brooklyn Bombers', the 'Brooklyn Dodgers' or something like that.

Man! When this lockout is over, I'm taking a roadtrip to NY and watching them play in the new arena ... bet. :mrgreen:
