CAROLINA EAGLES JUNIOR TEAMS (PREMIER/ELITE)
ANNOUNCE TRYOUT DATES FOR 2017-2018
The Carolina Eagles Junior Hockey Club is on the move up. This season the Eagles junior program will make an advancement from Elite and USP3HL to the Premier and Elite Levels. The Eagles Owners and Staff are thrilled to be able to now be playing at the top level of Tier 3 Junior hockey in the U.S., stated CEO Jocelyn Langlois. Both teams had tremendous seasons this year, breaking the all-time regular season win mark for the program, at both the Elite Level, with 28 wins and 59 points, and the USP3HL Level, with 32 wins and 65 points. The Elite Team ended up 6th Overall, out of 27 Teams at the Elite Division Nationally, and 3rd in their Division to Secure Home Ice for the first round of the playoffs. The USP3HL Team ended up 4th Overall, out of 27 Teams Nationally, and 3rd in their Division to also secure home ice for the first round of the playoffs.
Eagles General Manager and Elite Coach Lincoln Flagg had this to say about the program and moving up to Premier, “This gives our program an opportunity now to bring in a higher level of talent and gives us a path to placing players into Division 1 College Hockey.” “This is a goal of our program, to play at the highest level we can, to afford the players in this program a chance to play at the top level of NCAA Hockey.”
This season, the Eagles had a very young team, with one third of the team being 1998 and 1999 birth year players who competed day in and out against 20 year old opponents and learned how to win. The Eagles Elite Team, who only had four 20 year old players, will move 5 players to college hockey next year, with three of those playing NCAA Division 2 and 3 hockey and two moving to D1 Club hockey next season. They will also move 7 players into Tier 2 Hockey next season. The Eagles USP3HL Team, mostly comprised of 1999 Birth year Players, were able to move their one 1997 Birth year player to Liberty University and their Club Team.
“We will be looking to reload again this off season to replace all of the guys we are moving up. We will have some players from our USP3HL Team ready to make the jump but we are also looking for the highest caliber combination of talent, character, and academic ilk,” Flagg went on to say.
The Eagles Will Hold their Try-Outs on Saturday April 29, 2017 and Sunday April 30, 2017 at their home facility, Polar Ice at the MVP Sports Factory, 1839 South Main Street, Wake Forest North Carolina. Please click on the link below for registration.
