It was an exciting 2014 NHL Draft weekend, not only for three young men from North Carolina but also for the RYHA Junior Hurricanes program. Josh Wesley was selected by the Carolina Hurricanes in the fourth round, 96th overall. It was great to hear as a former Canes player and now employee, that Wesley grew up wearing Canes gear as kid, then wearing the sweater in our Jr. Hurricanes travel program and now at the top level on draft day.
Other top local players and former Junior Hurricanes, while not drafted, also have a bright future. Bryan Moore is heading straight to the New York Rangers prospect camp on a free agent try-out and Logan Halladay is preparing for another season in USHL Bloomington Thunder organization before heading to Minnesota on a scholarship in the near future. The success of these young men not only shows the hard work and dedication they have put in on the ice, but also highlights the dedication to development the RYHA has put into the Triangle over the past 26 years.
The RYHA’s continued passion to develop and grow our young talent is unprecedented here in North Carolina and will continue to succeed for many years to come! By utilizing the USA Hockey age specific model and having dedicated coaches and staff, the RYHA Junior. Hurricanes program is and will continue to be a model for success. The Carolina Hurricanes will continue to support the local youth hockey community and strive to unify the area from year to year. You can find more about these three great players in the links below!
