Guilford, Conn., - Our very own Elite Hockey Program 15U & 16U levels had a strong performance this weekend in Hingham, Massachusetts at the ECEL Winter Classic Showcase. After a strong weekend both of the teams have locked in first place in the ECEL standings. 

The 16U and 15U teams have put themselves in a great position for the ECEL playoffs in February and are determined to win the ECEL Championship which will be held Feb 8-10 in Boston, Mass.

Our 15U team went (3-0): Wins over West Coast Renegades, Boston Advantage, New Jersey Titans. Top Performers from the tournament include 

  • Logan Nickerson (F), Sawyer Paul (D), D’Mar McCoy (G)
  • Head Coach Peter Gintoli states: “We definitely won the right way this weekend. No one cheated. Maybe a little against advantage but they snapped out of it. We scored a total of 11 goals and had 10 different goal scores. That says a lot about our team”

Our 16U team went (3-1): Wins over Boston Advantage, New Jersey Titans, West Coast Renegades, and one loss Bishop’s College from Quebec. Top Performers from the tournament include

At the Elite Hockey Program, we want student-athletes to find a college that matches  their academic and athletic interests.   One of the most frequently asked questions in hockey are, “How do I get noticed?” “What do I have to do to get to the next level?” There is no simple answer, but players must make themselves attractive and visible to programs. The Elite Hockey Program takes a unique approach to help players and families better understand what it takes to play at the next level and how to narrow the gap between potential and performance.   CLICK HERE to fill out a recruit questionnaire and your information will be forwarded to our Hockey Operations Staff.
