Huntingdon Huskies are champions at home

The Huntingdon Huskies M-13 A (peewee) hockey team skated away with the league championship and President’s Cup on April 21, defeating the Île-Perrot Riverains by a score of 3-0 on home ice.

The tournament, which capped the 2021-22 season for the 30 Ouest hockey league, took place at the Huntingdon Regional Arena over the weekend of April 21-22, with at least 10 final matches played before crowded stands of appreciative fans. These were the first finals for the league since 2019 due to the pandemic.

“People were happy after two years to be able to see a final,” says Erick Faubert, the president of the Huntingdon Minor Hockey Association. “There were a lot of people in the arena,” he adds, noting a section of the stands was taken up by classmates of the Huskies goalie, Anthony Roy, who helped his team to victory with a shut-out performance.

“There was a lot of support from his fellow students and I who came to see him play,” says Tara Leggo, a Grade 5 teacher at Heritage Elementary School, who says she was especially pleased to see Roy’s classmates cheering him on.

“We would have liked to see other teams in the finals, but we are very proud of all our teams,” says Faubert, of the 14 Huskies teams that took part in the season. He admits this year was difficult to manage logistically with the pandemic enforced stoppages to team sports, but says it was worth it in the end.

“We are hoping for a return to normal for next year,” he says, adding the future looks bright for hockey in Huntingdon.
