The Warriors competed well and showcased their skills in front of scores of collegiate coaches and professional scouts.
“It was a great weekend and I was pleased with how we competed,” said Andy Heinze, the general manager/head coach of the VJW Junior A squad. “The Spring Showcase is always a place where we can take a look at our players and get a sense for what to expect next season.”
After winning two games and losing just one, Heinze must be pleased. The Warriors are coming off another strong season where they advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2012 EJHL Gary Dineen Cup Playoffs. In addition, the program took home three end-of-the-year EJHL awards – the most by any league program. Heinze was named Coach of the Year - for the third time in his career - while Fabian Sivnert and Conor Riley were named Goaltender and Defensive Players of the Year, respectively.
