This Monday 20 students learned the basics of skating, stick-handling and shooting from Hurricanes Asst. Coach Randy Ladacoueur, TV Analysts Tripp Tracy and Hurricanes players Sean Hill, Nolan Pratt, pictured guiding a student at beating the goalie and Byron Ritchie.
The on-ice session of this three day course ended with competitive relay races and a player Q&A and autograph session. Tonight, Tuesday, students will meet with Hurricanes TV Play-by-play announcer, John Forslund, and the radio voice of the Hurricanes Chuck Kaiton to learn the rules & regulations that govern the sport. Guest speaker Skip Cunningham, Hurricanes Equipment Manager, will be on hand to do a short equipment demonstration and explain the technologies that go into today’s protective equipment.
