On top of being the training facility for the ICE, the Centre will also be the home for the CSSHL’s RINK Hockey Academy and will be the temporary home for the MJHL’s Winnipeg Blues.

Mattheos draws into Calder Cup Final

Brandon Wheat Kings forward Stelio Mattheos drew into the lineup for the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers in Game One of the Calder Cup Final against the Chicago Wolves, which the Wolves took 4-3. Mattheos has played in 10 of the Checkers’ 15 playoff games and has two goals and one assist. In 253 WHL Games with the Wheat Kings, Mattheos has 127 goals and 151 assists. As a 1999-born forward, Mattheos is eligible to return to the Wheat Kings next season but it’s very possible he will turn pro in the Carolina Hurricanes organization.
