2012/13 Recap.

The Whitecourt Wolverines name was founded in the Summer of 2007 as the Wolverines would join the NWJHL (North West Junior Hockey League). The “Junior B Wolverines” would stand tall for 2007-2012 before folding in their “Claws” for something bigger.

The Whitecourt Wolverines (Junior A franchise) started to be established on March 29th 2012which would have the St. Albert Steel relocate to Whitecourt.

When Whitecourt Wolverines General Manager / Head Coach Joey Bouchard set out revamping the last-place Steel roster in the summer, he knew he couldn’t simply stick with scouting traditional AJHL hot-spots.

Instead, Bouchard looked east and recruited Mathieu Guertin and Jerome Raymond, two 20-year-old Quebecois players looking for a change of scenery from the QMJHL.

“They wanted to experience living in the west and learn the English language. It was a good fit.” Joey Bouchard

The Wolverines put together a remarkable and memorable inaugural year finishing the season with a 31-21-8 record which was good enough for 3rd place in the North Division, It was by far an improvement from the St. Albert Steel team the year before who finished the season with a 9-48-3 record.

The 2012/13 seen Raymond and Guertin be named to the All Star steam in the North Division as well as Guertin capturing the Ernie Love Trophy for leading the AJHL in scoring.

The season also included players moving onto the Canadian Hockey League including.
Jared Rathjen – Vancouver Giants
Jason Trott – Vancouver Giants
Zach Paterson – Portland Winterhawks
Steven Alldridge – Portland Winterhawks
Brandon Ralph – Edmonton Oil Kings
Mathieu Gagnon – Shawinigan Cataractes

At seasons end Linden Penner after coming off a remarkable rookie campaign received an invite to the Calgary Flames rookie camp.

Players advancing to the CIS level were:
Mathieu Guertin – University of Ottawa
Anthony Terenzio – St. Mary’s University  &
Charles Inglis – University of Saskatchewan.
