SQUIRT A1 AVON TOURNEY RUNNER UP

Wolves Nation:

I wanted to share some of our team results from this weekend's Thanksgiving Tournaments. 

Our teams participated in tournaments across the region and brought home some incredible hardware! 

A few highlights:

  • Our Mite B team started it off with a successful showing at the Avon tournament with 3 overall wins and a loss in the finals to Millbrook, 6-4.
  • Our Squirt A team went 2-1 in pool play before losing in the finals to a strong Simsbury squad, 3-0. During their run to the title game, they crushed their rivals from Avon, 7-0.
  • Our Squirt B team rallied from an opening loss to Central to beat up on Wonderland and Simsbury before losing a close rematch game in the finals against Central, 3-1.
  • Our Squirt A1 team (pictured here) also went 2-1 in pool play, including a monster win against a tough Simsbury team, before ultimately falling short in the finals against Avon, 2-0.
  • Our Mite A team squared off against 3 scrappy teams from Avon, Simsbury, and ECHO, going 1-2 in the round robin, losing both games by 1 goal margins, before taking out their aggression on ECHO 16-2 to bring home 3rd place.

I am waiting to hear on results from our U14 and Bantam teams and heard unofficially that our U12 team lost in the finals out on the Cape. Stay tuned for more details from all of these teams, as well as some team pics showcasing our new bling!

For those keeping track at home, that's 5 second place finishes. Additionally, every Squirt team that entered the Avon tourney came home with a runner up trophy. Very impressive.

Congrats to all of our skaters and coaches. West Hartford was very well represented on and off the ice this weekend. I hope all of our other teams had a successful weekend as well and that everyone had a great Thanksgiving Holiday.

ALL STAR HOLIDAY WEEKEND

 

 

For the upcoming Holiday season, WHYHA has decided to expand on our hugely successful inaugural 3 v 3 Wolves Winter Gathering from last season.

This year, we will be introducing the 1st Annual WHYHA Wolves All Star Weekend.

On Friday, December 30th, we will be hosting an All Star Skills competition at Trinity. The event will be open to all skaters, with opportunities for both House and Travel players to participate. Modeled after the NHL All Star Skills competition, there will be several challenges to test speed, accuracy, stick-handling, and teamwork. Skaters will be assigned to teams and each team will include players from every age division. Details about the selection process and specific events is forthcoming, so stay tuned.

Following the Skills competition, there will be an opportunity for our Mite Development skaters to participate in a cross-ice game in front of a cheering crowd of Travel players, Coaches, and families. A chance for some of our youngest skaters to showcase their talents under the lights.

The Mite Development game will be immediately followed by our Annual WHYHA Coaches' Game. Always an entertaining show, Coaches from our House and Travel teams will be assigned to teams and take the ice to square off in an epic battle of skill and stamina. Not to be missed...

And if you haven't had enough after this fun-filled night of hockey, you're in luck...

On Saturday, December 31st, we will be hosting our 2nd Annual Winter Wolves Classic, a 3 v 3 tourney to be held at Veterans Rink. Similar to last year, this shinny-style event will consist of teams in every division taking the ice for some cross-ice pond hockey competition. No goalies, no subs. Winner takes all. 3 hours of pure hockey to fill your morning before heading off to usher in the New Year.

More information about all of these awesome events will be shared over the next 2 weeks. Additionally, there will be details about our Annual Food Drive and an all new CCMC Stuffed Animal Drive.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and good luck to all of our Wolves' teams participating in Holiday tournaments.

President, WHYHA
