The Waywayseecappo Wolverines are excited to announce the hiring of MJHL alumni,
as their new General Manager/Head coach
Arnie, who is originally from Manitoba, had a 10-year career playing goal in the MJHL, WHL, and at the university level with the Acadia University Varsity Axemen, where he obtained his masters degree in Sociology. After graduation, Arnie played in the U.S. Southern Hockey League for the Daytona Beach Breakers and Lakeland Prowlers.
Arnie has coached at various levels including his most recent 2-year stint with Portage College in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference, where he led the Voyageurs to a 21-point improvement in his first season.
Arnie has developed a strong network of contacts through his experience of recruiting players to the northern Alberta college and managed all aspects of the Voyageurs’ operations. Prior to his move to Alberta, Arnie spent 2 seasons in Winnipeg, coaching at the AAA midget level and the 2012/2013 season as General Manager/Head Coach of the Lundar Falcons of the Keystone Junior Hockey League.
Arnie has great knowledge of the game and tremendous enthusiasm and passion. We believe that Arnie’s work ethic, attention to detail and administrative organization capability will be exactly what the Wolverines require as we re-brand and reorganize team structure for future success!
Arnie’s first tasks will be contacting our players and preparing for the MJHL Bantam Draft and scheduling meetings that will be held in conjunction with the MJHL Annual General Meeting. After that, we anticipate working on securing support staff and preparing an organizational process and structure for the upcoming season.
Arnie will be moving to the area immediately, with his family re-locating upon completion of the school year.
Former Wayway Wolverine Cody McLeod has a chance to sip from the Stanley Cup as his Nashville Predators face defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins.
McLeod, who hails from Binscarth, played as an “AP” for the MJHL Waywayseecappo Wolverines for five games in the 1999/2000 season. The following 2000/01 season, Cody played 59 games as a 16-year-old with Wayway, recording 56 points (27 goals, 29 assists) before heading to the WHL Portland Winterhawks to finish his Junior career.
McLeod, who turns 33 in June, started his tenth NHL consecutive season with the Colorado Avalanche. Cody was given an opportunity to play for a play-off contender when he was respectfully traded to Nashville in January 2017. Based on Cody’s work ethic, commitment and longevity to the game, it is no wonder that the 8th seeded Nashville Predators from the Western Conference are now facing 2nd seeded Pittsburg Penguins in the Stanley Cup final.
Congratulations Cody and best of luck in the Stanley Cup finals!

Thank you to long time Wolverine fan, Marcel Fouillard for bringing this to our attention, and to Reid Cutler for providing the correct player stats and information.
The Waywayseecappo Wolverines hosted a very successful spring camp this past Easter Weekend.
A total of 88 players registered comprised of 13 Wolverine list players, 14 prospects and 54 bantam age players that are eligible for the MJHL bantam draft to be held in June.
Guest on ice coach and evaluator, Brandon Nolan, assisted by Mike Heffering did a great job in engaging the players during the on-ice information and testing sessions. Brandon Nolan has an extensive hockey bio and pedigree that added professionalism and credibility to the spring camp. The evaluation games were fast paced and very entertaining for the spectators who came out to watch.
The weekend was organized and coordinated by Wolverines Office Administrator, Jackie Barteaux and along with a tremendous group of volunteers and evaluators, the Wolverines Spring Camp was a very successful first step in the player recruiting process for the 2017/18 MJHL hockey season.
