Skating around the ice at Cyclones Arena in Hudson on Wednesday night, feeling fulfilled in only the way a championship can fulfill you, Connecticut Oilers defenseman Cam Cundy couldn’t help but think back to another title team he played on nine years ago.
“It was just an unreal feeling,” said Cundy, a 20-year-old Portsmouth native. “We worked for six, seven months to do what we did. It was probably one of my best moments ever.”
The Oilers won a deciding Game 5 in their Eastern Hockey League championship series against the Hudson-based Northern Cyclones. It’s the first title for a junior hockey program that’s only in its third year and is coached by former University of New Hampshire defenseman Eric Lind.
Asked if it marked his greatest accomplishment in team sports, Cundy mulled the query for a couple beats.
“Close,” he finally said. “It brought back memories of the Little League World Series. The feeling was similar.”
