Cape Cod Cubs To Host High School All-Star Game
By: Dan Crowley
Everybody celebrates in their own way, and the Cape Cod Cubs have come up with a very unique way to celebrate their 2009-10 International Junior Hockey League championship.
The Cubs, who put up a league-best 37-4-4 regular season record before defeating the Hackettstown Harleys for the IJHL title in action in Exeter, New Hampshire, have decided the best way to celebrate their successful inaugural season is by putting on a high school hockey all-star game at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center on Saturday, March 27, at 7:30 PM.
The all-star contest will showcase senior hockey players from all of the Cape’s high schools. In announcing the game, Cubs’ General Manager Scott McPherson noted, “The Cubs want to be part of the hockey community here on the Cape. Hopefully, the kids playing in this game and kids who might play in this game in the future will consider improving their hockey skills by playing junior hockey.”
When McPherson first announced the formation of the Cubs and the intentions to play in Hyannis, he was quick to point out one of the goals of the team and the IJHL was to provide its players with a way to use hockey as a means to a better education.
“We’ve had a number of our players contacted by colleges and prep schools,” McPherson said. “We provide an elite hockey program that not only helps our players improve their games but also gives college and prep school representatives a chance to scout these players and then hopefully make them part of their educational and athletic programs.”
McPherson is also hoping that the more local high school players know about junior hockey, the better it can be for not only the players, but also for the Cubs.
Tickets will be $10 at the door, with children under 10 years old admitted for free.
