18 AA PLAYER, ANTHONY SPINA, HONORED BY NJ DEVILS!

Prudential Center, Newark, NJ- The New Jersey Devils honored Anthony Spina of the New Jersey Colonials as part of Walmart Youth Hockey Community Playmaker Award at their game against Tampa Bay, Tuesday evening, October 17, 2017.  If you have not heard his story by now and his tremendous work as an EMT, here it is: 

Anthony and his team, the Colonials 18 AA White, recently played the 18 AA Jaguar Black team, at the Igloo, in Mt. Laurel, NJ.  The game proceeded normally, until the clock hit 5:14 in the 3rd.  That is the time when the Jaguar goalie, Luke Martini, collapsed on the ice, in net.  To say it was scary was an understatement!  The Jaguars took the situation very seriously, knowing their goalie had a prior health issue.  911 was called.  The player's parents, coaches, one of his teammates, who is a volunteer fire fighter, and the manager attended to him on the ice.  

 

As the manager looked up, one of the Colonial players was skating towards the net.  It was Anthony Spina, who quietly and respectfully informed the group that he was an EMT.  He immediately got involved and helped tend to Jaguar goalie, Luke, until the ambulance arrived.  

 

The New Jersey Devils would like to honor more NJ youth hockey players who are doing great work in the community. They deserve to be recognized in-game and on social media!  If you know of a player or team going above and beyond, please contact the New Jersey Devil’s Senior Manager of and Amateur Hockey Operations Kevin Fox at:  , 973.757.6186

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.
Over the past three seasons, these eight Bantam Major Level Players have earned the right to garner these accolades:

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

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

Zach Aston-Reese, Pittsburg Penguins
Patrick Harper, Boston University, World Juniors Team
 Ken Agostino, St. Louis Blues, NHL 
 Kevin Lebanc, San Jose Sharks, NHL

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!”
