It's been a busy week for the men's hockey team at Holland College. The Holland College Junior Hurricanes announced on Tuesday that they would be hosting the Island Junior Hockey League Entry Draft at their Centre for Community Engagement later this month and on Wednesday the club announced that the Simmons Sport Centre would be the clubs new home arena. The Hurricanes have played out of the Charlottetown Civic Centre for the past three seasons.

With the move of the professional basketball team, the Summerside Storm, to Charlottetown, the available ice time for the Hurricanes has gone down significantly at the Civic Centre. It was a move the Hurricanes had to make.

"The Charlottetown Civic Centre has been a fantastic home for us over the past three seasons and we're grateful for everything their staff has been able to do for us over the previous years. We're excited to make the move to the Simmons Sport Centre, the atmosphere is sure to be different", said the team's general manager, Daniel Cudmore.

"When you take a crowd that we would get for a game in an arena that holds 3,700 people and move that crowd into a rink that holds 1,000 people, the atmosphere is sure to be much different. That's the part we're most excited about, having more of a buzz at our games. That was the only downfall we felt playing out of the Civic Centre, the size of the building made it tough to create any energy".

The team's highest single game attendance last season was 526.

The Island Junior Hockey League regular season will begin in early October.

The IJHL Entry Draft will take place on Thursday, July 25th at 7:30 PM at the Holland College Centre for Community Engagement gymnasium located at 323 Grafton Street in Charlottetown. The public are invited to attend as the five league teams draft 56 players from PEI's Midget teams. Prize draws will take place for anyone in attendance that is drafted compliments of Island Flow Clothing. Live updates will be posted at, You can also watch the draft live via
