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.
Perhaps the Charlotte Checkers would be interested in offering him a pro tryout next fall?
Best of luck to Kantola. We will be watching.
