Wolf Pack name scholarship recipients for 2023

It has been 15 years since the Wolf Pack first entered the Pacific Junior Hockey League. Over that span, the team has won championships, set milestones, and etched its name in the record books. While winning titles on the ice is undoubtedly important, the team’s players succeeding in school also is too.


This season, the organization is proud to name three players as scholarship recipients for 2023. Alex Binette (02’), Matthew Carniel (03’), and Trevor Baron (03’) have all received scholarships to help relieve some of the financial stress that is present when receiving postsecondary education. These scholarships not only help cover costs associated with schooling they also serve as gratification from the team for the hard work, time, effort, and sacrifices made by these individuals when playing with the Wolf Pack.


Binette’s career with the Wolf Pack spanned four seasons, totaling 39 goals and 48 assists for 87 points. Alex Binette’s final game with the Wolf Pack was game 100 in the PJHL. Binette is the second player in team history to serve as the team captain for over a year and the 13th captain in franchise history. He has played his final junior hockey game.


“He’s a solid kid and an outstanding hockey player. He will be missed, and we wish him the best of luck.”

Each year Matthew Carniel shows why he is the real deal on the ice, and now that he has been awarded a scholarship, his title can also follow him in the classroom. Carniel’s career with the Wolf Pack has spanned 78 games; in that time, he has managed to put up 28 goals and 41 assists for 69 points. 


I want to thank the North Van Wolf Pack for the opportunity to play hockey while furthering my education. It’s a great place to play, and I am excited for next season!

Trevor Baron is the final player earning a scholarship in 2023 and the most recent to join the team of the three recipients. Baron began his PJHL career with the Aldergrove Kodiaks during the 2019-20 season and would play there until midway through this past season when he was dealt to North Vancouver. Baron has played 23 games with the Wolf Pack, locking up six goals and 14 assists for 20 points.


“I’m honoured to be recognized for the scholarship program from the North Van Wolf Pack of the PJHL, As it helps me to excel as a student when I’m off the ice.”

On behalf of the organization and its fans, we would like to once again congratulate these three individuals on this incredible achievement. We look forward to another year of exciting junior hockey as we get set to go on the hunt and can’t wait to follow along with their journeys.
