"It's unreal," Anderson said of getting the opportunity to play in the tournament that decides Canada's top major-junior hockey team. "Growing up and watching it on TV every May and dreaming of [playing in it] as a kid, and now I'm here. It's a pretty surreal moment."

Colorado Eagles Soaring To New Heights

The Avalanche American Hockey League affiliate will be just a short trip up the highway next season

by Scott MacDonald / ColoradoAvalanche.com

A new level of pro hockey is coming to Loveland, Colorado, next season, and it's been 15 years in the making.

Since its inception in 2003, the Colorado Eagles have quickly soared through the ranks of professional hockey. Starting in the Central Hockey League, the team immediately found success as the Eagles finished second in the league with a 43-16-5 record in their first season. In their next campaign, the club reached the CHL's pinnacle, winning its first Ray Miron President's Cup as league champions. Two years later, the Eagles added another President's Cup to their trophy case.

"Down here, they have a winning mentality, and it's nice to be a part of that," said Colorado Avalanche prospect and current Eagles goaltender Joe Cannata.

That mindset has fueled 15 outstanding years of hockey in Northern Colorado.
