Pee Wee Minor 04s win Tier 1 Elite showcase

The Los Angeles Jr. Kings’ Pee Wee AAA 04 team won its division at last weekend’s Tier 1 Elite Hockey League showcase, which was contested at The Rinks-Lakewood Ice.

The Jr. Kings put together a 2-2-1 record at the event, including victories over the San Jose Jr. Sharks (4-2) and Anaheim Jr. Ducks (3-2 in a shootout).

The club earned its tie against the Phoenix Jr. Coyotes (1-1).

“We had to dig deep the entire weekend, but ultimately the kids proved successful,” said Jr. Kings head coach Igor Nikulin. “Overall it’s been a rewarding season for us, and it's nice to see how much this group has evolved since September.”
