The Ottawa Senators (Original Founded in 1917. Current Founded in 1992.) and Winnipeg Jets (Original Founded in 1979. Current Founded in 2011.) had to get permission to use “Ottawa Senators” and “Winnipeg Jets” as their team name as there were previous teams who used those names which either relocated or left the league.
There was one thing that he always did with his mother , attend a lot of sports games . Either they were her clients or it was just the local recreational sports that even Billy tried out for . Christmas was the best because she would be clean and get them two tickets for a Hockey match . In the spring it was baseball . He actually was going to try out for a Canadian Team and bring his mother with him if he actually got in. He’ll never know , because Neil up and packed him by court order across the country . He was trying out for the Hamilton Bulldogs . (if he stayed he would have been accepted at 17 if he dropped out).
He knows how to skate really well . He’s tall and fast , a bit of body weight on him which makes it easier to actually play when there is a fight going on . Neil knows nothing about this opportunity . Hawkins doesn’t have a team , and he might be too old in his head once he’s a legal adult . He scraped and saved and so did his mother to get him the equipment he has now . He ends up selling it to send the money back to his mom for Christmas . He hopes it will help her get off drugs , and maybe he can go back to California . He would do anything to get away from Neil , Susan , and Max .
He misses his old traditions . His mom was usually clean around Christmas and they would open gifts , sometimes so poor that they would wrap things in their OWN HOUSE in newspaper and gift it to each other . His mother would make the cookie recipe his grandmother left them . Hes holding down a steady job by the time a second christmas rolls around and he doesn’t have the money to go home still . He doesn’t have the money to do anything . , but he gets a card from his mom with one of his old jerseys he left behind and things for that Christmas , alone , feel better than he ever has in the longest time . Things look okay .
