2013 World U-17 Tournament and Power Edge Pro Trained Players


The best young 1996 and 1997 born players in Canada, United States and key hockey countries in Europe (Finland, Sweden, Germany, Slovakia, and Russia) compete every year in the World Under 17 T0urnament, hosted in different Canadian cites and organized by Hockey Canada.

This year there will be a significant representation of players who have experienced various exposure to Power Edge Pro training. Follow the tournament and watch these players lead the way for their teams and be key players in the tournament.

Team Ontario features offensive star Connor McDavid with the Erir Otters, a 1997 born, and 1996 born players Josh Ho-Sang, Windsor Spitfires, Dante Salituro, Ottawa 67’s, and  Damian Bourne. Mississauga Steelheads.

All were OHL 2012 1st round selections.

All trained with Joe Quinn and Power Edge Pro since they were 10-11 years old!

Team Atlantic has 1997 born player Nathan Noel, playing at Shattuck-St. Mary’s, Kameron Kielly with Gatineau Olympiques,  Cody Donaghey with Rouyn Noranda, Kyle Tibbo and Liam Hynes with The Hill Academy. All were drafted by QMJHL teams in 2012.

All have attended Power Edge Pro camps in Atlantic Canada with Don MacAdam.

Team USA U-17 team feature the Power Edge Pro system as part of their regular training program.  And, PEP is the official skills development partner with the US Development Program.

Top young hockey players are finding success at elite levels as they grow their game with Power Edge Pro training. PEP training is quickly becoming a preferred training system for players who want to perform at the top of their game and at the top levels of competition.

Canada’s 2013 World Junior Team Features Several Power Edge Pro Players

There were 36 of the best junior age players in the country invited to Canada’s 2013 team training camp. Eight have experiences training with Power Edge Pro–the ultimate on ice training system.

Some have been training for a number of years now, others for the past season, and the only two NHL undrafted players 17 year olds had a taste of PEP training with their major junior team this fall.

That is close to one quarter of the entire camp.


Here is the impressive list of players who have PEP exposure, and their teams:

Daniel Catenacci (Owen Sound, OHL),

Boone Jenner (Oshawa Generals, OHL)

Ryan Murphy (Kitchener Rangers, OHL)

Jonathan Huberdeau (Saint John Sea Dogs, QMJHL)

Malcolm Subban (Belleville Bulls, OHL)

Jordan Binnington (Owen Sound, OHL)

Nathan MacKinnon (Halifax Mooseheads, QMJHL)

Jonathan Drouin (Halifax Mooseheads, QMJHL)


Two of the three goalies selected for the team, Subban and Binnington, have been on the ice for sessions where they got the benefit of the fact that skaters have pucks, and shots are incorporated into virtually every drill in PEP training.

Catenacci, Jenner, and Murphy have been training with Joe Quinn in the Toronto area for some time now.

Jonathan Huberdeau, a Florida Panthers 1st round pick, was part of the Saint John Sea Dogs Memorial Cup championship team and trained with coaches Mike Kelly and Gerard Gallant, winning the Q league championship the past two seasons. Check out the video of a Sea Dogs training session on the site.

Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin, both eligible for the NHL draft in June, 2013, both were part of a Mooseheads team training session in early December, 2012. They are the only 17 year olds, other than Sidney Crosby, to ever make the team.

World class players using Power Edge Pro—even this level of player and their organizations see PEP as a way to develop.

Go Canada Go!

Marcus Cuomo-Another Power Edge Pro Trained Player Making His Mark in the “Q”

Here is a story of another Power Edge Pro trained player who is making his mark in the QMJHL. Marcus has trained with PEP over the last two summers at camps in his hometown of St. John’s , NL. Great kid, exceptional work ethic, who is now thriving in a positive environment with tremendous coaching.




24 OCT 2012 09:44PM

SAINT JOHN, NB – With his mane of long hair resting on his shoulders, Marcus Cuomo would look right at home playing for the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1970s.

The hard-nosed Newfoundlander would be a ferocious forechecker while playing helmetless with the likes of Bobby Clarke, Reggie Leach, Bill Barber, Don Saleski and other long-haired heroes with the Broad Street Bullies. Or maybe a ’70s version of Cuomo would play on a line with the Big Bad Bruins, digging the disc out of the corners and feeding Phil Esposito in the slot. Playing with a helmet and visor, however, makes him resemble a young Claude Lemieux or Peter Zezel. And now that Brent Sopel is playing in Russia, Cuomo could compete for the best hockey hair in North America.

But the 5-foot-9, 210-pound forward is not about style – just results. Whether it’s playing back-to-back games or two in three nights, Cuomo’s contributions are a big part of Saint John’s grit level.“I think I’m here in more of a defensive kind of role, especially as a rookie,” the 17-year-old said. “You have to take care of your own end first and then worry about offence later. I try to bring a strong work ethic and a high intensity level.”…

“We’re really happy with Marcus,” Saint John head coach and general manager Mike Kelly said. “He consistently brings energy to the rink and his game doesn’t change. He’s physical and he skates. There are aspects of his game that he needs to focus on, but he never cheats you with a lack of effort.”

That’s due in large part to Cuomo’s idol while growing up, fellow Newfoundland native and Buffalo Sabres forward Luke Adam, whose QMJHL career started with the St. John’s Fog Devils. Cuomo’s father coached Adam prior to that and the future NHLer always had time for kids.“I was always around the rink when he was there, so I admired him,” Cuomo said. “He’s a really nice guy and he’s always willing to help you out, and I think he’s a good role model to follow as an NHLer. We do like our own.”

And the fine folks from ‘The Rock’ are also known for a loyal love of their land… In Cuomo’s case, moving to Saint John didn’t make him miss home. With the Bay of Fundy and Kennebecasis River close by, the son of St. John’s is comfortable in southern New Brunswick.“It’s a good place,” Cuomo said. “It reminds me of Newfoundland – close to the water. It’s nice to be close to home, especially where we don’t have a junior team in Newfoundland.”

Cuomo’s energy on the ice is only matched by his efforts to keep things loose in the locker room. He’s known to quote one-liners from movies, especially those from comedian Will Ferrell. “Come game time, I’m ready to go, but I like to keep the personality there and bring a little Newfie flair to the team,” Cuomo said.

Coming into this season, the Sea Dogs had received a total of 21 games from their seventh-round draft picks. The honour belongs to Scott McDonald, a defenceman from Halifax who played in 2007-08.Then along came Cuomo, a mucker and grinder who’s sure to pass McDonald’s total. And while the former member of the midget AAA St. John’s Privateers was thrilled to be selected in the seventh round last summer by the defending QMJHL champions, he didn’t want to be just another face in training camp. “When you come in as a seventh-round pick, there are not a lot of expectations,” Cuomo said. “There’s not the pressure you have as a first-round pick, so I came in and just worked hard and hoped to turn a few heads. I feel like my work ethic is what got me here and that’s what I’m going to keep using.”

Kelly said that’s the way it has to be. “Everything has to start with a strong work ethic and a strong competitive fire,” the coach said. “After that, you add layers to your game.”

Power Edge Pro Ambassador Connor McDavid in Select Company–Already

Here are excerpts from an article on the TSN.ca site for Wednesday, October 11, 2012 made by Craig Button, TSN scout. He mentions Power Edge Pro Ambassador Connor McDavid in the same company as this years to NHL draft picks Nathan MacKinnon, Seth Jones, and Aleksander Barkov. High praise for McDavid, to say the least.

It certainly looks like the years of training using the Power Edge Pro on ice training system has paid dividends for Connor McDavid.

As mentioned on That’s Hockey on Wednesday…

Halifax Mooseheads centre Nathan MacKinnon and Portland Winterhawks defenceman Seth Jones have been battling it out for the top spot in the 2013 NHL Draft so far this season, but there’s another great young talent to watch out for as well from the Finnish Elite League.

Aleksander Barkov is tearing it up overseas and deserves to be in the conversation regarding the No. 1 spot for the rest of the season. That’s how good he is. He just turned 17 on Sept. 2 – just a day after MacKinnon turned 17… But what really impresses me about Aleksander Barkov is his ability to do things quickly and take advantage of things that are given to him.

Over on this side of the pond, there’s been a lot of hype over Connor McDavid, who was given exceptional playing status in the OHL with the Erie Otters and is still two-and-a-half years from being eligible for the NHL draft.

And why was he given exceptional status? Because he IS exceptional.

Connor McDavid is already transforming the Erie Otters franchise with his presence and his ability to do so many things. You talk about mind speed and the ability to make those around him better – that’s what Connor McDavid does.

He is a franchise-defining superstar. If there’s a 15-year-old out there that’s as good as Connor McDavid right now and going into that 2015 NHL Draft, we’re going have a situation that I’ve only seen one other time – back in 1971. That’s when Guy Lafleur and Marcel Dionne went first and second overall.

McDavid will only get better as time goes on and he is everything as advertised.

Don MacAdam Award in Hockey at the University of New Brunswick

There are a few things in life that are special beyond the normal use of the word. This scholarship is in this ‘special’ category for me.

2011 was the first year for the award and a young defenseman  from Edmonton, Alberta, Bretton Stamler, was the winner. I was at the first game Bretton played for UNB and my thought then watching him play was that he was going to be special. I am happy to say that is exactly what Bretton has become to the program.

Here is part of the award description…The successful recipient must possess a high level of physical fitness, have an outstanding work ethic, be community-minded and a team leader on and off the ice. The recipient must have demonstrated successful academic performance (minimum 2.5 scholarship grade point average)…awarded on the recommendation of the Athletic Director in consultation with the UNB hockey coach.

Donor: Alumni of the 1983-84 UNB men’s hockey team.

The 1983-84 UNB players fall into that same ‘special’ category for me. I have never coached a finer group of players who are even better people.

Below is 2011-12 winner Bretton Stamler.

The PowerEdgePro Training System

After two weeks and four camps with elite level players, I have firsthand experience with the PowerEdgePro Training system—it works big time!

Joe Quinn, the inventor of Power Edge, spent time at all camps and I worked directly with him as we trained players. The camps were on Prince Edward Island and in St. John’s, Newfoundland with players from all over Atlantic Canada.

Players from this area are known to be hard workers, The Power Edge Pro pushed them physically every day—and they met the challenge. Part of the reason was the challenge of the on ice training; part was the desire to get better. And a big part was the fact that it was fun for the players.

Check the system out at www.poweredgepro.com

This really is the ‘big next thing’ and it works—big time!
