Our Success Stories

downloadThe Waterloo Wolves extend their congratulations to all alumni as they progress from our major midget program to higher levels of hockey.

Over the years it has been very exciting to see our players move on the compete in all levels of Junior hockey, college/university play, European league and NHL.

In just 13 seasons, we have seen:

  • 3 of our players make it to the NHL
  • 15 players graduate to Junior A
  • Over 60 players graduate to Junior B
  • Over 25 players graduate to Junior C

We have many alumni playing hockey at universities and colleges in Canada and the US, as well as players in Europe.  We even have an alum officiating in the NHL and another in the AHL!

We are very proud of all of these young men’s accomplishments. Once a Wolf, always a Wolf.


Congratulations, Paul!
