Congratulations to T1EHL alum and former Colorado Thunderbirds player, Josiah Didier, and the Charlotte Checkers for winning the Calder Cup Championship.

The Checkers, minor league affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes, defeated the Wolves in Game 5. This was the first championship for the Checkers in nine AHL seasons.

Didier played for the Colorado Thunderbirds from 2007 to 2010. Following his time with T1EHL, he moved on to play college hockey at DU before being drafted 97th overall in the 2011 NHL Draft by the Montreal Canadiens.
