14U AA Bantam Major Skate with Triangle Special Hockey

 

The 14U AA Bantam Major team took to the ice in the spirit of giving this holiday season. Players participated in a scrimmage with the Triangle Special Hockey Association (TSHA) Cat5Canes team. TSHA was founded 10 years ago by J.V. Cotterell to allow special needs players of all ages the opportunity to play hockey. The Bantam kids, referred to as mentors, scrimmaged with the Cat5Canes players. “Their participation provided a wonderful opportunity to share the passion of skating and playing hockey,” said Head Coach Sue Mitran. “The Junior Hurricanes demonstrated their ability to gently guide our players when they needed help and also encouraged them to be confident, energetic and play together as a team unit.” Cotterell added that when the Cat5Canes players see the mentors skate it really ups their skills and believes the mentors benefit just as much. “This program is not just for special needs players. It’s a chance to build character and awareness for the mentors too.” This is the 2nd year in a row that this group of bantam boys have worked with TSHA and they have also been working with the Miracle League of the Triangle. "It is not just about playing hockey at this age, it is about teaching these boys how to become responsible young men and giving back to the community", said Head Coach Thomas Morris.

PW AAA Minor Wins CCM Chicago Tourney

The Peewee AAA Minors stormed into the CCM tournament in Chicago and came away winning the championship by beating the New Jersey Avalanche 6-4.  Led by stellar goaltending from both Mikayla “Boom” Williams and Jack Foy, great team defense and timely goal scoring, this was a true team effort.  The first game against the local Chicago Bulldogs was a back and forth affair ending in a 4-4 tie as the Jr. Hurricanes were just getting their legs going.  They followed that up with an offensive explosion and great goaltending performance by “Boom” against another local team, the Chicago Bruins, winning 7-1. On Saturday, games started to tighten up quite a bit, but the Jr. Hurricanes were a determined team.  They pulled off a thrilling 5-3 victory against HC Dallas to start the day.  That win sent the team to the Sweet 16 against the Anaheim Jr. Ducks where the Jr. Canes set the tone early, scoring just 17 seconds in…they had to work hard for this one, killing off a lengthy 6 on 3 with 2 minutes left in the 3rd.  In the end, they came away with a 3-1 win.  In the Elite 8, the Highland Park Falcons scored 3 in the first but the Jr. Hurricanes answered with 2 of their own…and then 2 more in the 2nd sealing the 4-3 win. The semi-final against Fox Motors was a defensive battle but Jack Foy shut the door on everything thrown his way, earning the 1-0 shutout.  The finals against the North Jersey Avalanche was another back and forth game but timely goals from Josh Smith and Cam Stehle sealed the 6-4 championship win.  Aiden Barbee was solid offensively and defensively throughout this tournament, earning him MVP Honors! 

 

Congratulations once again to the Players, Coaches and Parents!

Coach Bill Peters Drops Puck for NHL Youth Cup Championship Game

 

Bill Peters, the head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes, was on hand at PNC Monday to participate in the ceremonial puck drop for the 2007 birth-year NHL Youth Cup Championship game featuring the Carolina Junior Hurricanes and NY Junior Islanders. The Hurricanes practiced right before the Youth Cup game so both youth teams were able to watch the Hurricanes practice under the NHL Youth Cup score board and banners. Coach Peters decided to stay and watch the game and had some very positive post game comments about how well the young players from both teams played.

PW Lower A Win Palmetto State Fall Classic Championship

Jr. Hurricanes Pee Wee Lower A team staged a thrilling overtime win in the championship game, to cap a perfect 4-0 weekend at the Palmetto State Fall Classic in Charleston, SC. Faced with an early 2-0 hole in the final, the Jr. Canes cut the deficit to 2-1 midway through the 2nd period. After pulling the goalie in the waning minutes, the Jr. Canes tied the score in dramatic fashion, to stun Atlanta Fire Squirt AA and force overtime.

It didn't take long to seize on their momentum. Just 30 seconds into overtime, the Jr. Canes struck again with the final tally, to complete the comeback and take home the gold in sudden death.

The tournament started with a convincing 10-2 victory over the Carolina Stars, followed by a closely contested 3-0 shutout of the Atlanta Fire. After a 4-1 win over Chilled Ponds (VA), the stage was set for a rematch with the Fire, and the Jr. Canes were equal to the task in their first tournament of the season.

Peewee Lower A now enjoys a bye week, before heading to Montgomery, MD for a three game set vs. the Blue Devils. After earning their first gold medal of the young season, the team's record now stands at 8-3-1.

 

Congratulations from the Junior Hurricanes organization for a great weekend!

They also killed several crucial penalties and overcame adversity throughout the game.”

Kaden Wolitski won the tournament MVP finishing with 7 goals and one assist.

Congratulations again to all of the players and coaches!
