​WCHL players, families, and volunteers,

As you may have heard on the news this evening, Canfield Arena is closed until further notice. Jason Drapinski has been in close contact with Karl, our contact at Canfield, in order to figure out what that means for our league for the rest of the season and for the future. At this point, arrangements have been made for us to finish this season at Taylor SportsPlex on Telegraph Road. Karl is having all of our equipment moved there this week so we will be ready to play our games on May 21st.

The Hornets and Cobras will be playing at Noon and the Seals and Wolf Pack will be playing at 1:30pm. It is extremely important for us to begin the games on time or they may be cut short due to the possibility of overtime and the very busy schedule at SportsPlex. The first game will start no later than 12:05pm and players in the second game need to be ready to play at 1:35pm. Please do not be the reason your team has to forfeit a playoff game.
Please check your email, social media, and watch for texts this week in case we need to get further information out to everyone. Let's finish this season strong and positive. Our family can handle this bump in the road.

The WCHL has finally hit the middle of the season, the first game of 2017 featured a rematch of last year's WCHL's finals. The Hornets (3-1-1) took on the Seals (3-2). Both teams held leads in the back and forth tilt, but strong efforts from Zeljko Srecovic in net (whoever thought we'd be writing that?) held the Hornets in tight enough to take a lead in the second. Once the Hornets took the lead, Kevin Konfara controlled the pace of the game. The Seals scored a goal with 15 seconds left after pulling their goalie, but it would not be enough as the Hornets held on 13-12. The Hornets are now 4-1-1 in first place, while the Seals fall to an even 3-3.
The second game saw the Cobras (1-4) looking for their first win in awhile as they squared off against the Wolf Pack (2-2-1). The game was low scoring for awhile, with both teams struggling to generate any offense. Halfway through the second the Cobras began to pepper shots on Wolf Pack goaltender Trei Cools. Cools stayed just that, as he continued his amazing season in bid for a goaltender of the year award, and maybe even the league MVP? The Wolf Pack would pull away in the third winning the game 4-2. The Cobras now fall to 1-5 and the Wolf Pack jump to second place at (3-2-1).

Action resumes on the 22nd, the Cobras (1-5) take on the Hornets (4-1-1) and the Seals (3-3) take on the Wolf Pack (3-2-1). Don't miss all the fun!

​Game one saw the Seals (2-2) take on the Cobras (1-3). The Cobras were without their captain Clay Martin and forced to find offense elsewhere. Wolf Pack captain Jeff Fleshner subbed for Martin, chipping in two goals. Seals forward Tristan Parent ran wild. Parent posted 6 goals of his own. The Seals got additional support from their defenseman/forward Katie Frayer who netted her second goal of the season. The Seals ended up holding out for the victory, winning 7-4. 
​Game two was as action packed as ever. The Hornets (3-1) took on the Wolf Pack (2-2). Both goaltenders, Trei Cools of the Wolf Pack, and Ezra Zabawa of the Hornets, were looked at as key players coming into the game, but the two offenses exploded for 30 total goals. This is just two off the WCHL record. Hornets captain Kevin Konfara continued his torrid pace, sniping 13 goals in the contest. One would think this would be enough, however nothing is stopping the Come Back Pack these days. The Wolf Pack scored 3 goals in the remaining two minutes to pull things even and earn a draw. The game finished with a score of 15-15.

​The WCHL now goes on a bit of a mid-season holiday break. Action resumes on January 8th. The Seals (3-2) will take on the Hornets (3-1-1) in game one, and the Wolf Pack (2-2-1) do battle with the Cobras (1-4) in game two.

The first game was an absolute classic. The Wolf Pack (1-2) took on the Seals (2-1) in a rematch of the first game of the season. The Seals controlled the pace early on with strong efforts from forward Tristan Parent and goalie Brendan Nienhaus. However, like their last game, the Wolf Pack never gave up. With 9 seconds to go in the third period, Wolf Pack forward Anthony Theuer sniped a shot top corner to take the lead. The Wolf Pack would add another goal from rookie forward Piotr Pasik with just one second remaining. The Wolf Pack are building a bit of a reputation for late game heroics. Perhaps the Come Back Pack? The Seals now sit at 2-2, along with the Wolf Pack who are also now 2-2.
Top players Clay Martin and Kevin Konfara squared off in the second game between the Cobras (1-2) and Hornets (2-1). As per usual between the two teams, the game was close, but an absolute shootout. Between the two teams there were a total of 29 goals, 11 of which occurred in the third period. Konfara got the better end of Martin's Cobras scoring a massive 12 goal in the contest. The Hornets now sit alone in first place at 3-1, meanwhile the Cobras fall to the bottom of the barrel at 1-3.

All four teams are incredibly tight,there's no telling how the standings could flip going forward. The Seals are currently struggling to find goal scoring from anyone but Tristan Parent. The Wolf Pack are beginning to heat up winning two in a row. The Hornets look as good as ever so long as Kevin Konfara is there. And the Cobras have lost two tough ones in a row. Join us at the next game on December 4th at Canfield Arena in Dearborn. The Hornets (3-1) take on the Wolf Pack (2-2), and the Seals (2-2) take on the Cobras (1-3).

The rematch of last year's finals featured a very different look than the series back in May as the Seals (1-1) took on the Hornets (2-0). With the Seals missing goalie Dean Olivas Jr. and the Hornets missing elite scorer Kevin Konfara, both team required other players to step up. The Seals got strong goaltending out of back-up Brendan Nienhaus. Meanwhile Wolf Pack forward Anthony Theuer subbed for the Hornets posting three goals. Ultimately, the Seals proved triumphant defeating their foes in a lopsided 10-3 victory. Both teams now sit at 2-1.
The second game was one to remember between the Cobras (1-1) and Wolf Pack (0-2). A back and forth scoring game through and through. Both teams have a very balanced scoring approach and this showed in the game. Wolf Pack captain Jeff Fleshner, and Cobras forward Jordan Zmich each registered 5 goals in the contest. The Cobras at one point had a string of 5 consecutive goals. However, the Wolf Pack never gave up. Goaltender Trei Cools kept calm to keep them close. With just over a minute to go Wolf Pack forward Anthony Theuer rifled one past Cobras goalie Jamie Porter to give them the lead. The final score ended at 9-8 with the Wolf Pack being victorious for the first time this season. Each team now has a 1-2 record.
This season is shaping up to be yet another close one as all 4 teams have earned victories at this point. Join us at the next game on November 20th at Canfield Arena in Dearborn. The Seals take on the Wolf Pack, and the Hornets take on the Cobras.

​In the first game of hockey, the Hornets took on the Wolf Pack in a back and forth contest. Kevin Konfara continued his pace from last week scoring 10 goals. Wolf Pack forward Anthony Theuer also picked up his 200th career point in the match.

The WCHL's two rookies showed off their skills as well. Wolf Pack forward Piotr Pasik recorded his first two goals, and Hornets forward Torrance Johnson Jr. tallied his first career points, earning three assists in the game. Congrats to both players on this accomplishment.

The Wolf Pack were ultimately done in by late penalties for an illegal line change violation. The Hornets won the game 11-9 moving their early season record to 2-0.
​The second game featured a much lower scoring affair than the first. Former Seal, now Cobra, Jordan Zmich got the better end of her former team picking up three goals in the game.

With minutes left in the game, Seals captain Dean Olivas pulled from the net recorded a goal to draw things closer. Ultimately the Cobras were able to hold on to win 5-3. Both team's records now sit at 1-1. Cobras coach Greg Martin becomes the first coach in WCHL history to earn a win.

Join us at the next game on November 6th at Canfield Arena in Dearborn. The Seals take on the Hornets in a rematch of last years finals, and the Wolf Pack will look to earn their first win of the season as they take on the Cobras.

​Week one of the 2016-17 season is officially in the books!
In the first game the Hornets defeated the Cobras 12-8. Kevin Konfara picked up where he left off last year in his record breaking season with 10 goals in the contest.

The second game featured a back and forth tilt between the Wolf Pack and Seals. The Seals were able to take the lead late in the third and never looked back. Tristan Parent registered all 7 goals for the Seals.

Thank you to all of our new and returning volunteers this week. Without you we would not be able to put on the games at such a competitive level. We're very thankful!

Join us in two weeks when the action returns! Trei Cools and the Wolf Pack open the action up against his former team the Hornets. Also, now members of the Cobras - Jason Drapinski and Jordan Zmich look to take down their former Seals teammates.
