Congratulations to Carmel native and Jr Fuel 18U AAA alum JJ Grainda on scoring two goals in his first NAHL game! Grainda made his junior hockey debut last night for the Chippewa Steel against the Kenai River Brown Bears in the Steel home opener. The NAHL rookie added an assist to make it a three point night and earn 1st Star of the Game  in the Steel’s 5-1 victory. 

JJ played the 2020-2021 season for the IYHA Jr Fuel 18U AAA and was tendered by the Steel midway through his final season of youth hockey. 

Congrats to JJ and the Grainda family on a tremendous start to your junior hockey career!
