Canes!!! BEAST!!! HABS!

Canes have been in the same conversation at the hot table with the Carolina Hurricanes, but The Montreal Canadiens!.

 

 Hurricanes Coach Jason Dopaco recieved a call today from the ECHL Bramtpon Beast pro hockey team. The Beast are Montreal Canadiens Farm Club team next to St.Johns Ice Caps.  The Beast are looking for our 21 years olds to join the rookie camp in July.  Logan Kerner, Mircea Constantin, Tyler Jansen, Nikita Chekardin & Steve Shapiro are the group that has interest.

 

Coach Dopaco is committed to sending players to the next level. Sending a player to a pro camp that is associated with the Montreal Canadiens shows the Hurricanes management have the right mixture of development in our program to be contacted by a ECH club.

 

The Canes have THE TRENCH starting June 28th running every Wed to Aug 16th. This camp is for Junior / College / Pro players.   This camp is to get you ready for a the next level. There are many spots still available.  Coach mentioned if a 21 year old player wants to start with us and then move to Beast camp, we will arrange that.

 

The canes are also in contact with Knoxville of the Southern Pro Hockey League(SPHL).  

 

To join THE TRENCH you can contact 1-519-573-7223 or email info@tillsonburgjrahockeyclub.ca

Selkirk College Saints Keeping It in the Family

Apr 17 2017
The Selkirk College Saints will rebuild a program that has lost several key players to graduation. The first players to be part of the recruiting class for the upcoming 2017-2018 BCIHL season are Logan Kerner and Brandon Sookro.

The Selkirk College Saints have started the post-graduation rebuilding project and hockey fans will be familiar with the names on the back of the jerseys of two of the newest recruits.

Following in the strides of their older brothers, Brandon Sookro and Logan Kerner will pull on a Saints jersey for the 2017-2018 British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) season.

“I choose Selkirk College to further my hockey career and obtain a post-secondary education,” says Kerner, whose older brother Tyler played three years with the Saints where he was the captain in 2016-2017. “I’ve been watching the Saints play hockey both in person and online, the team chemistry and grittiness of their game is exactly the kind of hockey I want to be a part of. Castlegar provides a great fan base and community feel which helps with the transition of moving to a new place for school and hockey.”

Logan Kerner played his final season for the Tillonsburg Hurricanes in Southern Ontario where he notched 56 points and amassed 175 penalty minutes in 37 games this past winter.

The younger Kerner will be enroled in the Heavy Mechanical Foundation Program on the Silver King Campus in Nelson when he joins the team this coming September. He played Junior A with the Olds Grizzlies (Alberta) and the Tillonsburg Hurricanes (Southern Ontario), finishing his junior career with the latter where he notched 56 points and amassed 175 penalty minutes in 37 games this past winter.

“Logan is a hard-nosed, two-way forward who showed last year by scoring 26 goals that he has a knack for the net,” says Saints head coach Brent Heaven. “Just like his brother, Logan plays with a very large chip on his shoulder and that will be an asset in our line-up for the coming season.”
