Twenty of the best 11 and 12-year-old hockey players from Long Island are participating in the 54th Annual Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament from Feb. 13-24. About 2,300 young hockey players from 16 countries come to Quebec to participate in the “World Championships of Pee-Wee Hockey.”

With the support from Islanders management and staff, the Junior Islanders are considered an important part of the Islanders family. Check this blog for updates about the team on and off the ice in Quebec City.

Today is our last day together with a game against Halifax. We were able to end the journey with a win, with the final score being 5-4. Our players skated and worked hard. They scored their last goal to win the game with 14 seconds left on the clock in the third. Everyone travels home tomorrow to get some rest before all these boys rejoin their teams to finish up their seasons.

We did not get the results in the tournament that the team was wishing for but the experiences and friendships will never be forgotten. Everyone had an amazing time and some players are trying to figure out how they can come next year. All the memories are unforgettable.

Yesterday we played team Detroit Red Wings and lost 5 to 0. Hustle lacked until the third when every single person skated their butts off.

Today was another sad moment when the Islanders lost to Team Maryland, 3-0. The effort was there early on but we just couldn’t seem to catch a break. The game was played in a mall with a roller coaster spinning around above our heads. Anyone could watch the game while they were shopping. Tomorrow we play our last game as a team against Hallifax. Hopefully we can pull it off and achieve a win.

We played at 3 pm against the Detroit Red Wings. If we lost the game, we would be knocked out of the tournament games and only have exhibition games the rest of the trip. Right away Detroit scored on us. Three in the first, one in the second, and one in the third made the final score 5-0. Our boys had hustle and were trying but just couldn’t get the puck in the back of the net. At this time the coaches had to go upstairs to schedule the rest of the exhibition games. Most of the team decided to make their way to the Ice hotel, which is famous in Quebec. Over 100 people stay there every night for the experience.

The day started bright and early with an 8:50 am game against the Nickel City Sons from Ontario. This game stayed scoreless for two periods and most of the third. Nickel City then scored with five minutes left in the third and once again to win 2-0. Everyone had a couple hours to eat and head to the hockey warehouse. We were surprised to pull up to the warehouse seeing something very familiar:

They were told to report to practice for 2 pm. Players practiced for about a half hour, until we invited all the dads and siblings to come skate with the kids in a pick up game. Teams were split up evenly and we had one of our players as the announcer. The Islanders vs. the Benders.

Everyone then got ready for the Quebec Remparts Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game. The boys were given their second batch of pins to trade. The atmosphere of the Colisee was electric. Everyone had a great time chanting and screaming. This is what Quebec lives for during Hockey season.

At the end of this game everyone was told to sleep in, and eat pasta the next day because we have our second tournament game.

Today was our first official tournament game at the former home of the Quebec Nordiques, the Colisee. The players were pumped and ready to play. We took our official team picture and signed player game cards. The Finland Selects scored first, but we fought right back in the second and tallied our first goal. We scored again to take the lead but Finland rallied to take control of the game. The game ended 8-3. This automatically puts us in the loser bracket to play on Wednesday at 3pm. Not the results we hoped for, but the boys looked ready to take another team on.

After the game we went to the snow park with all the families. On the bus ride over, the coaches and players discussed what happened during the previous games and what was needed to improve in the future. Once we arrived, everyone was told to act as if they were 12 years old, even the parents. That is exactly what they did. Everyone had a blast, fought their fears of heights and bonded as a team.

Day 3:
Today we had another Winter Classic. The team played much better than they did yesterday! They all had their eye black on and were ready to play! The final result was a 5-5 tie. Now the kids have the day with their billet families to go snowshoeing and some other fun activities.

Day 2:
Today was a great day but a little rough at the same time. We had a Winter Classic game this morning. They love penalty shots up here. We had about six in one game but unfortunately lost 4-2 to the Flyers. Luckily it was only an exhibition game.

The rink was amazing. It overlooked the mountains and they skated from the locker room to the bench. Then we scheduled a game at 2 p.m. against the Connecticut Yankees, but lost 6-2. We were not playing so hot.

At night the boys spent time with their billet families and saw the carnival and parade. They got to see the ice sculptures and ride on a toboggan. Tomorrow we have another Winter Classic at 10:30 a.m.

Day 1:
We all got to Quebec City today without any problems, arriving at the arena around 9:00 a.m.

During the first two minutes of our 11:00 game, we were awarded a penalty shot. We didn’t score but the game quickly escalated in our favor and we had a 2-1 lead at the end of the first period. Our team ended up winning the game 5-1.

We all headed to Colisee Pepsi to register as a team and check in. I swear our boys were more worried about the pins and the girls than anything else. They tell me they are at the age where they like girls! They continued to trade pins and a couple hours later we went to dinner with all of the billet families and New York families before splitting up. It was a really great bonding moment.

Tomorrow we have our first Winter Classic at 10:30 a.m. against the Flyers!
