    Pee Wee 1 Team Wins 2016 TD Bank-Boston Bruins Mini 1 on 1 Tournament

    Members of the NH East Eagles Pee Wee 1 Hockey Team captured the Boston Bruins – TD Garden Mini 1 on 1 Tournament on December 3, 2016 at the TD Garden in Boston, MA. The tournament features 3 on 3 mini-games with a goalie that last 3 minutes each. If the teams remain tied after regulation, the game goes to a sudden death shoot-out to determine a winner. The Eagles eliminated Westfield MA in the first round 1-0, advancing to a quarterfinal shoot-out win over the Maine Moose. NH East then went on to defeat the Manchester NH Flames in a semi-final shoot-out win, and edging Duxbury MA in the finals in yet another shoot-out win! Team members that took part in the victory run include Henry Fraser, Keegan Knight, Ty Robinson and Shauna Vadeboncoeur. The Eagles will have their hockey program and team name engraved on the Boston Bruins – TD Bank Mini 1 on 1 Cup; the team will attend an upcoming Bruins game with a player meet and greet; and then be featured during an intermission of a future Bruins game. Congratulations Eagles!

    Off to a good start

    By Coach Paul 09/29/2014, 9:15am EDT

    Off to a good start

    We are six games in to our eight game parity round in Valley League, with just two more to go. After that, we'll get slotted into our conference. Based on what I see, I expect we'll be in the top conference up against some stiff competition. Overall, the team looks to be in pretty good shape. As you may have noted, we've been moving the lines around a bit trying to find some good chemistry. What we've found is that all the kids gel well together no matter where we put them…a coach’s dream for sure.  Next weekend we’ll see our first GSL game at PEA.  Remember, we’ll need somebody to keep score for us.  If anyone would like to volunteer, please feel free to get some practice during Tuesday or Thursday nights practice.  This week’s practice we will focus on endurance…as we always do, and how to take a low shot…which seems somewhat challenging for some of the kids.
