The PEI Major Bantam AAA Hockey League is set to begin another exciting season. The League Opener will be played in O'Leary on Sunday October 14, 2018 at 2:30pm. The opener will feature last year's finalists; Island champs Prince County Warriors and runner-up Central Attack.
Also on Oct 14th in Crapaud the Mid-isle Matrix will host Eastern Express at 4:30pm.
This year, the Prince County Warriors aim to have yet another successful season, under the guidance and leadership of their leader Cody McCormack. As a returnee from last year's Provincial Champion team, the Warriors will look to Cody to lead the younger core and teach them the importance of getting better every day. 

With a big and strong defensive group, the Warriors hope to get a balance attack from the forward group up front, which is made up of a mixture of first and second year Bantam players - all of which can play fast and aggressive. 

Lastly, in net - first year Kiefer Thompson and second year Nylan Hustler will look to guard the gate; two new faces to the PEI Major Bantam League. These two will work under the eyes of new goalie coach Luke Oliver, a recent draft pick of the Summerside Capitals and current goalie for the Western Red Wings Jr B club.
The Central Attack Major Bantam AAA team is approaching the season with high expectations. The team will be returning eight players from last year's team including goalie Jack Howatt who will be sharing the goaltending duties with Sherwood first year stand out Shannon Macdonald. Defensemen Will Morrison, Landon Macdonald and Isaac Vos will anchor the blue line with first year players Nathan Mossey and Luke Coughlin. Returning forwards are Kal White, Jamie Collins, Colby Huggan, and Tyler Worth.
Four players from the Central Attack Bantam AA team including Bates Ling, Damien Boyle, Chris Keoughan and Keegan Callaghan have graduated to the next level for the upcoming season.
Rounding out the line up are Pee Wee AAA players from last year's Provincial Champion Charlottetown Abbies. These include Brett Arsenault, Cam Squires, Max Sentner, and Jonah Macdonald.
The Attack will have a well balanced line up and should provide and exciting brand of hockey to watch. They have moved their home games to the CARI Centre at 1:40 PM on Saturday afternoons.
Express will be looking for a lot of energy and enthusiasm from a very young roster. Forward group is lead by veterans Holden Bradley and Avery Brown while the defence is anchored by stalwart Sam Worth. They will be looking for solid goaltending from duo of Nathan Bailey and Ethan Smith.
The Mid-Isle Matrix has thirteen fresh faces on the roster so the coaching staff will rely heavily on the six returning players for their leadership on and off the ice.  Work ethic will be key in the team's success this season as there is a good mixture of size and skill throughout the lineup.
The Teams will be battling for the provincial Championship and to represent PEI at the Atlantic championships being held this year April 4th to 7th in Nova Scotia.

We encourage hockey fans to get out and see some of the most competitive hockey on PEI.
