The rematch of last year's finals featured a very different look than the series back in May as the Seals (1-1) took on the Hornets (2-0). With the Seals missing goalie Dean Olivas Jr. and the Hornets missing elite scorer Kevin Konfara, both team required other players to step up. The Seals got strong goaltending out of back-up Brendan Nienhaus. Meanwhile Wolf Pack forward Anthony Theuer subbed for the Hornets posting three goals. Ultimately, the Seals proved triumphant defeating their foes in a lopsided 10-3 victory. Both teams now sit at 2-1.
The second game was one to remember between the Cobras (1-1) and Wolf Pack (0-2). A back and forth scoring game through and through. Both teams have a very balanced scoring approach and this showed in the game. Wolf Pack captain Jeff Fleshner, and Cobras forward Jordan Zmich each registered 5 goals in the contest. The Cobras at one point had a string of 5 consecutive goals. However, the Wolf Pack never gave up. Goaltender Trei Cools kept calm to keep them close. With just over a minute to go Wolf Pack forward Anthony Theuer rifled one past Cobras goalie Jamie Porter to give them the lead. The final score ended at 9-8 with the Wolf Pack being victorious for the first time this season. Each team now has a 1-2 record.
This season is shaping up to be yet another close one as all 4 teams have earned victories at this point. Join us at the next game on November 20th at Canfield Arena in Dearborn. The Seals take on the Wolf Pack, and the Hornets take on the Cobras.

​In the first game of hockey, the Hornets took on the Wolf Pack in a back and forth contest. Kevin Konfara continued his pace from last week scoring 10 goals. Wolf Pack forward Anthony Theuer also picked up his 200th career point in the match.

The WCHL's two rookies showed off their skills as well. Wolf Pack forward Piotr Pasik recorded his first two goals, and Hornets forward Torrance Johnson Jr. tallied his first career points, earning three assists in the game. Congrats to both players on this accomplishment.

The Wolf Pack were ultimately done in by late penalties for an illegal line change violation. The Hornets won the game 11-9 moving their early season record to 2-0.
​The second game featured a much lower scoring affair than the first. Former Seal, now Cobra, Jordan Zmich got the better end of her former team picking up three goals in the game.

With minutes left in the game, Seals captain Dean Olivas pulled from the net recorded a goal to draw things closer. Ultimately the Cobras were able to hold on to win 5-3. Both team's records now sit at 1-1. Cobras coach Greg Martin becomes the first coach in WCHL history to earn a win.

Join us at the next game on November 6th at Canfield Arena in Dearborn. The Seals take on the Hornets in a rematch of last years finals, and the Wolf Pack will look to earn their first win of the season as they take on the Cobras.

​Week one of the 2016-17 season is officially in the books!
In the first game the Hornets defeated the Cobras 12-8. Kevin Konfara picked up where he left off last year in his record breaking season with 10 goals in the contest.

The second game featured a back and forth tilt between the Wolf Pack and Seals. The Seals were able to take the lead late in the third and never looked back. Tristan Parent registered all 7 goals for the Seals.

Thank you to all of our new and returning volunteers this week. Without you we would not be able to put on the games at such a competitive level. We're very thankful!

Join us in two weeks when the action returns! Trei Cools and the Wolf Pack open the action up against his former team the Hornets. Also, now members of the Cobras - Jason Drapinski and Jordan Zmich look to take down their former Seals teammates.

​​This year the WCHL will say goodbye to one of the most dominating and consistent players in our league history. After 17 seasons, #25 Marty Witberg will be hanging up his jersey for one last time. That jersey is a Wolf Pack jersey.
 
For 17 years Witberg is the only WCHL player to remain with the same team for their entire career.
 
142 Regular Season Games
388 Goals
143 Assists
531 Points
116 Penalty Minutes
 
Offensive Player of the Year
All-Star MVP
2x Goals Title
2x Assists Title
2x Best Duo
Playoff MVP
 
Marty has led the Wolf Pack to two Wheelers Cups and has helped the Michigan Mustangs win 2 US Championship and 2 North American Silver Medals.
 
Witberg was a constant scoring threat during his entire career and was a core member of the WCHL and a building block of the Michigan Mustangs, representing Michigan at 10 tournaments. To have a player as reliable and as consistent as Marty was a real luxury to have when building teams both locally and nationally.
 
He's been teammate, opponent and friend and we will all be sad to see him go.
 
Both the Wolf Pack and Michigan Mustangs will proudly retire #25.
