2016 NJC AYHL ALL STARS!

Some of the best and most talented players in the Atlantic District, were selected to play at the AYHL All Star Games, this past weekend, February 6th, at High Point Solutions Arena, TD Bank Sports Center at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT. 

Among those talented players were several Colonial Bantam Majors, chosen to represent our club.  Blue Team players included Forwards: Danny Colon, John Gelatt and Defenders: Jack Robilotti and Warren Marshall. The White Team included Forwards:  Alexandros Gaffney and John Farinacci.  Forward Marc Perez did the honors for the Colonials, at the 16 U National Level.  NJC Hockey Director, Noel Rubin, helmed the bench for the Blue Team.

The festivities began on Saturday morning, as the players arrived early for their 12:15 PM game, dressed in their Sunday best of khakis, dress shirts, ties and blazer for this venerable event. Arrangements were made for team pictures to be taken by Carmo Photographers and Fast Hockey broadcast the games via the Internet.

Players were treated to lunch, after their games.  Later in the afternoon, they were invited to participate in a Q & A session with the Quinnipiac Bobcats head men’s ice hockey coach, Rand Pecknold.  Pecknold was instrumental in transitioning Quinnipiac from a D2 to DI program in 1994.  He has since led the Bobcats to 17 consecutive winning seasons!  Parents were able to join the players in this event. The day was topped off with an invitation attend the Colgate v Quinnipiac NCAA D I game, at 7 PM. 

The All Star Game Day was a memorable one for all involved, thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Players, Parents and Coaches, the AYHL and Quinnipiac University!

NJC's Jack Richter Attends Brodeur Youth Goalie Clinic

Jack Richter gets some pointers from Marty Brodeur

Pee Wee AA White goalie, Jack Richter, received a rare opportunity this past weekend.  Jack got to participate in the Martin Brodeur Youth Hockey Clinic, held at the AmeriHealth Pavilion, in the Prudential Center on Saturday, February 6th!  Jack’s “lucky” happenstance occurred when Coach Chris Grimes submitted his name to the contest, for selection to participate in the clinic. NJC Pee Wee level coaches were asked to submitted their goalie's names and a name was drawn, at random. The clinic was all part of the Devil’s kick off tribute to Marty and his #30 jersey retirement!

Not only did Jack have the good fortune to get to work with Marty on the ice, but a number of other former Devils were there to help out, among them, Bruce Driver.  “The players trained on the ice for about an hour, Marty floated around and spent time with each group of kids,” according to Jack’s dad, Matt. “Then there was a great Q&A session run by Chico Resch.  They then escorted us to the luxury suite for lunch and then the game. We got extra spoiled-it went all the way to a shootout!”  Unfortunately, the Devils lost to the Washington Capitals, but fun was had by all!

NJC JOINS HIGH PERFORMANCE HOCKEY LEAGUE'S 2016-17 SEASON

The New Jersey Colonials are pleased to announce our expansion into the High Performance Hockey League (HPHL) for the 2016-2017 Season.

This league opens up a new and exciting chapter for Colonials hockey.  We will be including both 16 U and 18 U Tier I AAA Elite in this new venture.  We look forward to continuing to build elite teams throughout our organization, in the near future.  This new affiliation will provide our players the opportunity to compete at the highest level of youth hockey in North America.

Colonials Coach Jason Franzone will head up the 16 U Tier I AAA Elite team. Jason has scouted for the NAHL, the NTDP and is currently the East Coast scout for the Omaha Lancers in the USHL.  We are happy to announce the acquisition of former NAPHL coach, Gary Golczewski, to helm the 18 U Tier I AAA Elite team.

Both Gary and Jason have a wealth of experience in building and developing youth players, at the highest levels.  Many of their former players have moved onto college DI and DIII programs and other top levels of hockey.

Please feel free to contact us for information regarding the HPHL teams, along with tryout and special event dates and times.  Contact Noel Rubin at:  NRubin3189@aol.com

COLONIALS TAKE SILVER STICK TITLE IN OVERTIME

By Matt Sheehan, The Times Herald, January 10, 2016:

When the New Jersey Colonials need a big goal, they can always count on Greg Spitznagel.

All the forward needed was 16 seconds in overtime to send his team into a frenzy with a championship-winning goal in the Pee Wee AAA International Silver Stick Finals, topping the Toronto Marlboros 3-2.

“It’s unbelievable – it felt amazing,” Spitznagel said of his game-winner that won the Colonials their second-straight Silver Stick title.
