Stouffville Star Power on Ice
Submitted By Nathan Tratnik on Monday, October 3, 2011
Who da thunk it?

The power and strength of an NHL alumni teamed up with the 4'11" grace and beauty of a figure skating prima ballerina?  Well, the Battles of the Blades producers did, and have come up with a winning combination to the delight of Canadians from both ice camps.

Stouffville's own Brad May has turned his hockey blades in for figure skates in this season's contest, paired with Canadian Olympic pairs figure skater, Annabelle Langlois.

Brad and Annabelle tore up the ice with style, speed and grace as the last pair to close the evening on Sunday, October 2nd.  Special guest judge, Theo Fleury gave credit to the pair's passion and grace, while Jeremy Roenick commented that Brad didn't look nearly as graceful in the NHL.  The couple is second in the rankings, within striking distance of Tessa Bonhomme (Canadian women's hockey Olympic Team and gold medalist) and David Pelletier (also Olympic Gold medalist in the Pelletier-Sale figure skating pairs).  Many Clipper jerseys were spotted through the evening, waving MAY DAY signs, and Brad sported a dashing grin and waved to his special fan section as he and Annabelle warmed up.

The crowd was also charmed by the star power of Kurt Browning and Ron McLean who graciously signed autographs before the show and rev'd up the crowd with their antics on the ice.
