MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Carolina Sled Hockey! We hope you all enjoy this time with family and friends, however you celebrate. We’re looking forward to an exciting 2024!

NHL Sled Classic

Carolina Sled Hockey made their way down to Tampa FL to represent the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2023 NHL Sled Classic this past weekend. Although the team did not bring home the title it was a fun-filled weekend with some hard-fought games. The team welcomed some new faces as well as some old faces from years past. And just like that the 23/24 Hockey Season is on!

#15 Sean Eberle made his Carolina Sled Hockey debut and wasted no time putting his talents on display by getting 3 assists on all 3 goals scored in a 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators. Sean also picked up player of the game honors in the first two games.

#8 Kai Howard got his first taste of action between the pipes getting time against Nashville and LA. His counterpart #26 Odell Lambeth was stellar in net turning away 35 of the 40 shots he faced over the weekend. Everyone hustled and gave it their all.

The team will be headed back to Florida in January for the first SESHL tournament of the 23/24 season in Orlando.

2023 NHL Sled Classic

The Carolina Sled Hockey team will be heading to Tampa Florida soon for the 2023 NHL Sled Classic as the Carolina Hurricanes. During the tournament weekend Carolina will face off against the Edmonton Oilers, Nashville Predators, and the LA Kings.

Carolina will see some familiar faces as they squared off with the LA Kings in April at the Disabled Festival in St. Louis. The match was a very even tilt ending with Carolina winning by 1 goal. Carolina has faced off with the Predators many times in the past in the South East Sled Hockey League. The Edmonton match-up will bring Carolina into uncharted territory as the two teams have never met. The schedule can be found under the calendar tab. There you can follow along with the weekend and see updated scores.

Let’s bring a National Championship back home!!

2023 USA Hockey Disabled Festival

2023 USA Hockey Disabled Festival St. Louis, MO.

After a tough season in SESHL league play Carolina Sled Hockey headed to St. Louis to try their hand at a National Championship. The team came into the tournament with a little confidence boost as Jereme Gilbert joined the team once again for the National Tournament.

The team started the tournament by defeating the Mighty Penguins in the opening game followed by a close matchup with the LA Kings. The 2-0 start gave Carolina the top spot in the 1st round of the playoffs pinning them against the Mighty Penguins once again, with the game ending in the same result moving Carolina to the Semi-Finals to face off against Sioux City. Sioux City proved to be a tough opponent but Carolina held on to secure the victory and move ahead to the National Championship game to face New Mexico. The game was close throughout the first period but from that point on New Mexico pulled away leaving Carolina with the Runner-Up banner.

Runner-Up in a National Tournament is no small feat and the team was very proud of themselves for what they accomplished over the 4 days. The tournament produced first-ever goals for #43 Hunter Parda, #24 Jamie Livengood, and #26 Sherri Valentine.

This will be a tournament to remember. Can’t wait to see what the 2023/2024 season holds.

The 2022/2023 SESHL Championship is Almost Here!

The 2022/2023 SESHL Championship weekend will take place on March 31st – April 2nd in Charleston, SC . Carolina will face the Southern Division for the first time this season as they will play the Orlando Sled Bears, Tampa Bay Lightning, and the Space Coast Blast to finish out the regular season. Unfortunately no matter the outcome of the final three games Carolina can not qualify for the SESHL playoffs.

Carolina has not had the season they had hoped for. The team has yet to play a single game with all of its players and will still not have all of its players for this final SESHL weekend. Regardless Carolina is looking to finish strong as they gear up for the USA Hockey Disabled Festival in April.

Charleston Tournament Shows the Love

Charleston Tournament Shows the Love

The second tournament of the young SESHL season saw Carolina entering with heavy hearts as just a few days prior long-time player Angela “Cash” Mooney shed her sled and skated to heaven. The love and support shown to the team by the Charleston Warriors and Queen City will never be forgotten. Every player at the tournament sported “AM” stickers on their helmets in Angela’s honor. In a very special beautiful moment, all three times came together at center ice to share some kind words and to have a moment of silence. The moment of silence was broken by everyone on the ice chanting at the top of their lungs “1, 2, 3, CASH MOONEY”. Angela’s number will be retired and another player will never wear #11 for Carolina again.

Carolina struggled again this tournament as they lost to Queen City in a one-sided tilt that ended in a 5-0 defeat. Next up was the Charleston Warriors which was a back-and-forth very competitive match-up but ultimately saw Carolina on the wrong side of a 2-0 defeat.

Carolina will be back in action on home turf as they will be hosting a tournament at the Garner Ice House on Saturday, January 14th. Before the games begin there will be an All-Star type skills competition that will have all teams on the ice at the same time

First Divisional Tournament is in the Books

First Divisional Tournament is in the Books

The Carolina Sled Hockey team traveled to Charlotte, NC for their first divisional tournament of the 2022/2023 SESHL season. The team did not have the outcome that they had hoped for losing to both Queen City and the Charleston Warriors. However, it was bittersweet as it was such a huge honor to be a part of Queen City’s first-ever game.

The team is in somewhat of a rebuild after losing 3 key players from the roster from the previous season. Two players went to Queen City and one player was lost to retirement. Some players will definitely need to step up to fill those roles.

Humberto Reyna was the lone goal scorer from the weekend for Carolina Sled Hockey.

The 2022/2023 Season is HERE!!

The 2022/2023 season is finally here. Carolina Sled Hockey hit the ice this past weekend with a couple of hard skating practices. With the first SESHL weekend coming up in less than a month in Charlotte, the team needs to get in all the work they can to be ready to face off against Queen city and the Charleston Warriors. The Warriors are a familiar foe over the past few seasons whereas this will be the inaugural season for Queen City when it comes to league play. But Queen City are no strangers as they will have 3 former Carolina Sled Hockey players in their lineup, (Jereme Gilbert, Brooke Powell, and Cam Gross).

In addition to participating in the South East Sled Hockey League, Carolina Sled Hockey will also be participating in the 2023 USA Hockey Disabled Festival in St. Louis.
