Jr Hurricanes 18U State Champs!!
by posted 03/08/2018



The U18 Jr. Canes entered the CAHA tourney as the #1 seed.  Game 1’s opponent was the Wilmington Ice Hawks, coached by last year’s U18 coach Rich Brouwer, and featuring 2 players from last year’s national championship team.  Although the younger, smaller, Ice Hawks battled gamely and took a 3-2 lead in the 2nd, the Canes responded with 4 unanswered tallies and prevailed 6-3.  Gavin Brackman had 2 of those goals, and Brighton Boshart potted a hustling short-handed goal to seal the deal. 


The #1 seed scheduling did the Canes no favors, as they had to play Game 2 later that day versus the host Charlotte Rush, who had yet to play a game.  Although the Canes dominated the action, outshooting Charlotte 35-18, they fell 3-2 despite 11 Rush penalties and 3 misconducts.


Game 3 was versus the Carolina Eagles, and the Canes dominated the action in the second period, scoring 3 goals on 21 shots, and emerged with a 5-2 win.  The Hurricanes got points from 11 different players, with only Alex Good getting more than 1 (2 assists).  Jackson Shulmistra made 24 saves.


To advance to the championship, the 2-1 record Canes needed to at the least advance to overtime, versus their opponent, the #2 seed NC Force.  The aggressive Force jumped to an early 2-0 lead. The Canes then ran off 4 unanswered goals.  The Force battled back to a 4-4 tie, but a goal by Craig Woomer, set up by Ryan Tempke, proved the winner, and an empty netter by Gavin Brackman sealed the 6-4 win.  Defenseman Daniel Jones had a goal and 2 assists for Canes.


The championship was a rematch against the #2 seed Force.  Again, the Canes allowed the underdog the first goal, but the momentum of the game steadily swung in the Canes favor, and they entered the 3rd period with a 4-1 lead.  The 3rd period saw the Canes control the action and protect their lead.  Jackson Shulmistra was stout in the net with 32 saves. 



As a result, the U18AA Canes, after becoming the first RYHA team in history to win a USA Hockey National Championship, will now be the first to return to defend their title, April 5-9, in Green Bay WI.  Coach Rich Shulmistra’s team brings an incredibly balanced swarming attack to the table, with 11 players with 8 or more goals, yet none with more than 13.  The offense continues with the defense (35 goals), and both goalies, Shulmistra and Graham Emmett, have been consistently strong.

12U Wins NHL Youth Cup in a Shootout vs. Columbus
by posted 10/09/2017


Congratulations to the 12U AAA PeeWee Major team for winning the NHL Youth Cup in an exciting overtime shootout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 at PNC Arena. The Canes won a rematch vs. the Blue Jackets after dropping the opening game to them 2-0. They then went on to beat Nashville 7-1, won 6-1 over the Islanders and a 4-0 must win over the Penguins to secure a spot in the final.

The Blue Jackets jumped to an early lead and scored with just 10 seconds into the opening period. Coach Steve Rice said “going down by a goal that quickly into the game could have been devastating, but the boys kept their composure and battled back. 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!
