JUNIOR HURRICANES REACH FINAL FOUR IN QUEBEC

Youth squad eliminated from prestigious tournament in winners’ bracket final

RALEIGH, N.C. (Feb. 21, 2005) – The Carolina Hurricanes representative at the Quebec International Hockey Pee Wee Tournament returned to North Carolina on Saturday after completing the most successful tournament run in their history. The Junior Hurricanes, comprised of 18 players between the ages of 11 and 13 from North Carolina and South Carolina, compiled an overall record of 7-1-1 and a 4-1 tournament record in reaching the winners’ bracket final of the prestigious tournament.

The Hurricanes first sent a representative to the Quebec Tournament in 2002 and the Junior Hurricanes won a tournament game for the first time in 2004. The 2005 Junior Hurricanes defeated Papineau (Quebec), Repentigny (Quebec), New Hampshire and Prince Edward Island en route the Class B International winners’ bracket final. The Junior Hurricanes fell to eventual champion Connecticut in the winners’ bracket final in front of nearly 10,000 fans at Colisée Pepsi. The Junior Hurricanes also defeated perennial youth hockey power Littleton (Colorado) 3-1 in an exhibition match in Quebec.

“This really shows how far hockey has come in the Carolinas in a short amount of time,” said Hurricanes Fan Development/Promotions Manager Doug Warf, who served as Assistant Coach and Assistant General Manager for the team. “Four years ago it was a big deal for this team to score a goal in this tournament, let alone win a single game. This year’s team was capable of winning the tournament, and that is our goal from now on.”

Past participants in the Quebec Tournament include National Hockey League greats Ron Francis, Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Eric Lindross. In total, more than 750 players have participated in the tournament and gone on to play in the NHL. During their 12-day stay in Quebec, team members reside with local families, providing a unique way for the players to experience the culture of Quebec.
