Jr. Islanders - Quebec Blog - Feb. 18

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 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.
