Director of Hockey Operations with the Omaha AAA Hockey Club, David Wilkie, added “The Omaha AAA Hockey Club is honored to be a partner with the HPHL on a full-time basis starting next season.  We feel that this is our next step as an organization and we are extremely grateful for this opportunity.”

NJC 14U AAA BOYS GOING STRONG AT USA HOCKEY NATIONALS!

April 9, 2017, Scottsdale, AZ-

The New Jersey Colonials 14U AAA team stormed through their first two matchups at USA Hockey Nationals, this past Thursday, 4/6, (Alaska Oilers W, 9-0) and Friday, 4/7, (Pittsburgh Penguin Elite, W, 7-1) at USA Hockey Nationals.  Saturday's encounter with Shattuck St. Mary's proved to be a bit more mettlesome, as the Colonials battled them to a tie in regulation, only to lose 4-5, in OT.  Not to worry, though, as our intrepid Colonials still made it to the semis, with 7 points, 2.5 points ahead of their nemesis, in Pool Play.  

NJC Players, Nicholas DeSantis and Alexandros Gaffney tied at #2 for over-all point leaders, at the 14U games, with Michael Cameron and Cole Vallese, tied for the #5 position.  Not a bad position to be in, having 4 Colonials as the Top 10 goal scorers in the country and a Top 10 goalie, Collin Berke, at the 14U AAA level!

Our boys will face one of their toughest opponents yet, Sunday, April 9, 10:30 AZ (1:30 PM, EDT) at the Ice Den in Scottsdale, AZ, as they face Little Caesar's.  Good luck, Coach Noel Rubin and the team!

To watch the game, you may subscribe to HockeyTV.  Go to this link:  HockeyTV/USAH Nationals

The New Jersey Colonials Hockey Club is proud to announce that we will be fielding a Tier 2 Bantam A Minor team that will play in a 2004 birth year only division. This will be a separate division in conjunction with the normal NJYHL Bantam A schedule. This new pilot program was introduced by the NJYHL this year and will allow first year Bantam players the opportunity to play against teams that are single birth year only. There will be no advancement to the AAHA district tournament for teams playing in this pilot program. A separate playoff for this division will be at the discretion of the NJYHL. We are excited for the opportunity to compete in this new pilot program!

NEW JERSEY CLUBS TAKE GIRLS TIER I TITLE AT ALL AGE LEVELS

It was this season that Alyssa Wruble decided it was time to move on from playing hockey 
with the boys to finding an all-girls program.

Wruble, a 14-year-old from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, selected the New Jersey Colonials. 
 The choice worked out well for both the Colonials and Wruble.
“I thought this was the best team to go to,” Wruble said.

As they have in past years, the Colonials are sending multiple teams to the 2017 
USA Hockey Girls Tier I National Championships in Rochester/Macomb, Michigan.

Continuing their strong history of placing players in the top echelon of youth, college and professional hockey, the NJ Colonials are recognizing the last three seasons of Colonial players and alumni who have received commitments from Division 1 Colleges to play hockey.

 John Farinacci, Harvard University
 Ryan Siedem, Boston College
Cole Vallese, Providence College
 Alex Gaffney, Harvard University
Chase Bradley, Northeastern University
 Jack DeBoer, Boston University
   Jack Malone, Cornell University

These players join other Colonial alumni who have reached the highest levels of hockey:

Noel Rubin, the National Championship winning Hockey Director of the NJ Colonials said, “We are extremely proud of our players and their successes over the past several years. These boys have all shown what hard work and commitment can bring. These players have not only put themselves in a position to be successful, but they have also lifted our entire program. That is the sign of true leadership. They have made our whole program better for their efforts. No other youth hockey program in the United States can match this success rate, and the work ethic that these guys have shown trickles down throughout the NJ Colonials. Our younger players see how these guys play, and try to model their games after them. Great role models for our program! Thank you, boys, for all that you have done and accomplished and good luck!”

NJC BANTAM MAJORS AYHL PLAYOFF CHAMPIONS

WESTCHESTER, PA-MARCH 4-6, 2017—

The Bantam AAA Major team beat the New Jersey Devils in a hard-fought AYHL Playoff game Monday afternoon at Ice Line Arena, Westchester, PA.

The Devils ended the first period with the lead, having scored the only goal for the period.

But the Colonials were not to remain scoreless for long.  At 7:59 in the second, Alexandros Gaffney erased the goose egg from the Colonials side of the score board, with a goal fed by Michael Cameron. The Devils failed to answer in the second. The period ended in a draw.

At 12:50 into the third, Ben Conrod managed to notch a second Colonials goal, with a feed from Gaffney.  If the team could protect the lead and add an insurance goal, the win was within reach!

A regulation win was not to be, as the Devils scored the tying goal at the buzzer, forcing the game to OT.

The Bantams came back to OT ice, determined to clinch a victory.  They didn’t have to wait long!  At 5:32 into the 4th, the game was theirs, as Michael Cameron put the game winner, unassisted, into the net!

Congratulations to the Bantam Major's on their hard-fought victory against their local rivals!  Now it’s off to Districts, March 18th!

NJC'S BRADLEY COMMITS TO NORTHEASTERN!

Congrats to NJC Bantam Major, Chase Bradley, on his commitment to Northeastern University. 

Chase is the third player from the New Jersey Colonials 02 Bantam Major team to make a college commitment, after Cole Vallese (Providence) and Alex Gaffney (Harvard). 

 

Chase is a power forward who plays a “Full 200-foot game. His toughness and scoring ability enable him to create space for his line mates. His ability to win battles in front of the net and in the corners, make him a true power forward. Chas’s work ethic and uncanny ability to keep pucks alive on the forecheck make him a tremendous asset to the Colonials attack. 

 

"Playing for the NJ Colonials has been one of the best experiences for my hockey career. It gave me the exposure I needed to be seen by Division I schools.  Our high-end schedule and Coach Noel’s contacts helped make my dream of playing D I a reality. I have learned so much this season through his coaching, which has helped me take my game to the next level,” enthused Chase.

Coach Noel was equally as proud of Chase and offered his congratulations on a job well done.  Coach Noel  knows that Chase will keep up the good work and added, “It's been a great season working with Chase!  I look forward to following him in his hockey career!”

True to form was Don Gould’s Tier I 14 U AAA team, who dominated the Philadelphia Jr Flyers with a 6-1 victory taking home the 14 U AAA title for the 9th consecutive season. 
 
The day was capped off by the 16 U AAA win over the Philadelphia Jr Flyers in the finals, with NJC scoring 8 times and shutting out the Flyers, who had advanced to the finals with a shootout win in the semi-final round. 
 
The NJ Colonials girls have secured more AAA MAWHA championship titles in the past 11 years than all of the other league teams combined. The NJC girls arrive well prepared for hard fought competition by all of the clubs at every age group.
