Local hockey product Kai Kantola signed an amateur tryout contract with the Norfolk Admirals last week, after finishing his career at Bowling Green State University.   The forward played a total of 135 games for BGSU over his four year career and tallied 28 goals, 26 assists, and had 13 powerplay goals.

Kantola is a Raleigh native and is a product of the area's youth hockey leagues.

The Hurricanes invited him to their prospect conditioning camp this past summer and we had a chance to speak with him.  It seems like his career is headed in the direction he was hoping for.  

Perhaps the Charlotte Checkers would be interested in offering him a pro tryout next fall?

Best of luck to Kantola.  We will be watching.
