Quebec Peewee Tournament Recap To Date
Submitted By Jennifer Buttar on Saturday, February 22, 2020
The 2007 Peewee (U13) Wolves arrived in Quebec City on Tuesday February 11th to participate in the 61st edition of the renowned Quebec International Peewee Hockey Tournament. 

After settling in at their base camp in Stoneham, Quebec, the Wolves hit the ice the next day for an exhibition game against the Cyclones, a local team from Quebec City. Showing no signs of road rust, the Wolves won 7-0. The next day the kids kicked off official tournament play with a game against the Montreal based Lac-St-Louis Grenadiers in the 18,000 seat Videotron Center. The Grenadiers rallied to tie the game up late in the third and won it in overtime 2-1. A tough way to start, but things would get better, eventually.

Friday February 14th , the team took to the ice for their second exhibition contest versus the Pittsburgh Penguins Elite. Unfortunately for the Wolves, their American neighbours showed them no love on this Valentine’s Day, prevailing 4-0. 


The kids took advantage of the off-day on Saturday to regroup and prepare for a return to tournament play on Sunday. Their next opponent would be the Slovakia Stars who had journeyed over 4000 miles to participate in the tournament. The Wolves were excited to play against their first European team, and were in good form this Sunday evening, earning a 3-1 victory and a spot in the sweet sixteen.

With their next tourney game a full four days away, the team spent their week mingling and trading pins with players from all over the world including Japan and Australia. In between the pin haggling, the Quebec Winter Carnival visits, the skiing, the snowboarding and a special backstage tour of the “Hometown Hockey” trailer and meeting Ron MacLean, the Wolves managed to stay sharp and win three exhibition games: 2-0 versus the Adirondack Jr. Stars (New York State), 5-0 against the Zurich Lions (Switzerland) and 4-1 versus Detroit Compuware. 


Finally on Friday, February 21st , the Wolves faced their stiffest test yet when they faced off against the Burnaby Winter Club Bruins.  After a hard-fought battle, the Bruins scored with two minutes left in the third period to take a 2-1 lead and put the Wolves tournament hopes on life support. Not ones to be easily discouraged, the Wolves rallied to tie the game with thirty seconds to play, and then won it 3-2 in 3-on-3 overtime to vanquish the Bruins and join the Elite Eight.

The next game for the U13 Peewee Central Ontario Wolves is Saturday, February 22nd at 10:00am, versus the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers. 

Vivent les Peewees and Go Wolves!
