Jr Canes Bantam A Hemby Cup Champions


Jr. Hurricanes Bantam A team went undefeated in the Hemby Cup Winter Classic in Charlotte, winning their first tournament championship of the season.

 

It started with the Atlanta Fire Bantam A1 which the Jr. Canes dispatched 4-1 to start the tournament. The winning continued, beating the Charlotte Rush 8-1 on Saturday, December 2nd.  That evening, another Atlanta team, the Atlanta Fire Bantam A2 was beaten by the Jr. Hurricanes 5-1 earning them a spot in the championship game.

 

The final versus the Atlanta Fire Bantam A1 was much closer than the first, tied at 0-0 after one period.  The Jr. Canes got goals from Nathan Guenard and Kyle Rogers late in the game. The defense and goaltending were solid throughout and didn’t allow a single goal. The final was 2-0.

 

In four games, the Jr. Canes scored 19 goals, while giving up only 3, behind excellent goalie play from the tandem of Connor Schuh and Owen Kesler. It was a strong defensive showing by the team.

 

The Jr. Hurricanes Bantam A leave the tournament with a 13-3-3 record and a stellar start to the season.  Go Canes!

12U Wins NHL Youth Cup in a Shootout vs. Columbus

 

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.

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!
