December 22, 2010 - Trevor Gilman swung his hockey stick connecting it to the puck, scoring the first goal.

"He was very excited because his team has a habit of winning tournaments," said dad, Mark.

It was the lead the 2K Birmingham Rangers Squirt AA Hockey team needed in their game against the Plymouth Stingrays on Dec. 12.

Another goal from the Rangers early in overtime gave them the win in the Detroit Region Silver Sticks Championship in Saint Clair Shores, 2-1.

The Rangers also beat the Rochester Rattlers, the St. Clair Shores Saints and the Farmington Hills Fire to reach the finals against the Stingrays. The Rangers remained undefeated in tournament play.

The win sealed the Rangers trip to Sarnia for International Silver Sticks Finals in Ontario, Jan. 21-23. His team will play some of the best teams from around North America at the tournament.

The ten-year-old Springfield Township resident is the only player from the Clarkston area on the team. Trevor is right wing for the Rangers and is in his fifth year in travel hockey.

Trevor is also a shortstop and catcher for the Oakland Diamondbacks 10U travel baseball team. He goes to Oakland Christian in Auburn Hills and his parents are Mark and Patti.
