I've dug through the Spectrum Archives to bring a new page to the Spectrum THC site. Under each picture will be a brief history to set the picture up, I hope you all enjoy!

The Kauf in the Free Press
This picture was taken from the front page of the Winnipeg Free Press sports section after game 2 of the B. Div. Finals 1999, when Spectrum won it's first title.
The picture is of then Pivot, Chris Kaufmann scoring on a crucial Penalty shot, and was taken at Lipsett Hall vs. (reigning Champions) The Crusaders, who took Spectrum to 3 games. The headline read "Up & comers win Title! Spectrum is the new Champs!
The Kauf from the wing!
On a one man power-play, Kaufmann (#15-green), who had just slid from pivot to wing gets pass on his off wing and elects to shoot a patented "Kaufmann Head Shot" , & scores what many call "The goal heard around the world!" to put Spectrum up by two with 1 minute remaining in the Final game of the '99 WTHL B Div. Championships, sealing the win for the second year team.
Kaufmann had 5 goals that game and was named Playoff MVP and 1 team All-star(pivot)!
