Three young members of the Sudbury Wolves Perkins Cub Club had the opportunity to dine with some of their heroes recently.

Ethan O'Hara, 9, Caitlin Diclemente, 5, and Sebastien Zaher, 6, were winners in the Cub Club's most recent contest. As their prize, they ate dinner at Perkins with Wolves captain Kevin Raine, Jeff Corbett and Nathan Pancel.

A $40 membership into the Cub Club earns each member a T-shirt, eight free tickets to Wolves games and access to exclusive contests and draws throughout the season.

Ethan, who plays right-wing for the Rayside Balfour Tiger Cats atom team, was excited to get to talk with all three members of the team. He attends just about every Wolves home game, and his favourite players are Nicholas Baptiste and Danny Desrochers.

The youth keeps a letter he received from the left-winger from when he was going through a tough time. His family moved from Chelmsford to Sudbury, which meant leaving behind his school and friends.

“In his letter, he told me about how he had to do the same thing when he came to play for the Sudbury Wolves,” Ethan said.

Although Ethan is now back in his old school in Chelmsford, that letter he received from Desroshers is kept in a special place.

Raine said he and his team mates take every opportunity they can to participate in events like this.

“The biggest thing for us is the fans, and we want to give back to the fans,” Raine said. “Especially the kids. If there were no fans in the stands, it would be a completely different game.”
