Weeks Majors

The Pictou County Weeks Majors, pictured after their U-18 Atlantic Championships title win, had a successful year with a trip to nationals in Quebec. Despite finishing the national tournament with a 1-4 record, the team made history winning its first game at the national level.

Although they didn’t come away with the record they hoped for at nationals, the Pictou County Weeks Majors are looking back at a very successful hockey season.

Boasting a 27-6-2 record, good for first place in the Nova Scotia U-18 Major Hockey League, the Weeks Majors went 9-3 in the playoffs to take the league title and Nova Scotia crown, then defeated the Moncton Flyers 2-1 in overtime at the Atlantic Championships to earn their way to Saint-Hyacinthe, Que., for the Canada’s Men’s U-18 National Club Championship from April 24 to 30.
