Â“I knew what type of goaltender Matt could be if he was given the chance,Â” Gibson said. Â“He hasnÂ’t been given the chance in the past. We expected to him to be successful but he has taken his play to a whole new level.Â”
Patterson leads the SEHL in scoring with 117 points. He is third in goals scored (44) and first in assists (73). He is a +27 on the season and has been named SEHLÂ”Player of the WeekÂ” three times this season. He is originally from Wayne, Michigan but has now made his home in Huntsville.

Â“Patterson and Carr are a big part of our offense,Â” Channel Cats head coach, John Gibson said. Â“They helped us get in the position we are in, but they will be the first to spread the recognition around. We look at ourselves as a 16-man team not as individuals.Â”
Defenseman Alex Alepin and forward K.J. Vorhees from Knoxville and defenseman Scott Young from Cape Fear also made the team.
The team was decided by a vote for the leagueÂ’s head coaches, team front office personnel and media representatives from each of the four league cities. Voters could not vote for their own team.
