Congratulations to Waterloo U16 alum Steven Lorentz who will make his NHL debut tonight for the Carolina Hurricanes vs. Tampa Bay Lightning. Steve is a true example of staying focused on his goals and being committed to the process. He is a true professional in every sense of the matter and it was a pleasure to coach him as well as have him stay in touch with myself and our program as he is always here and gives back. I wish Steven the best of luck tonight and with all future goals as many success stories will continue to come. A very special moment for him tonight and enjoy every second of it. I know I will be watching and will be excited for you.
