We would like to thank our of the players and families for a great hockey season. All of the teams had a good season. The HS team placed second in their division and was very strong in the EVHL playoff championship losing in the final seconds 7-6 but overall a great season. In the JV division HR2 took 1st place in league play and HR1 took the EVHL playoff Championship game.
In the EL division, HR1 and HR2 were neck and neck all season long with HR2 winning the EVHL Playoffs
And the Mite division saw some outstanding improvements all season long with outstanding team play and skill development.
Both Select teams and the MG tournament teams had outstanding seasons against some pretty tough competition, not to mention the Cross Ice Jamboree team which also was very competitive.
Special thanks to all the coaches and team mgr who put in countless hours with our players.
THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR A GREAT SEASON.
We just learned of Gerald's passing. Gerald started his hockey career as a youngster with HRYHA and then moved to travel with the Whalers. Our condolences to the Owen family. Details of the service will be posted when received.
LEICESTER, Mass. -- A Massachusetts college is mourning the death of a student who starred on the men's hockey team even after being diagnosed with cancer.
Becker College announced on Monday that senior Gerald Owen had died at age 25.
- Owen was from Chesapeake, Virginia. He was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2014 while attending Becker. He missed the hockey season to receive treatment but returned a year later and led his team in assists. The cancer returned before his senior year.
Becker athletic director Frank Millerick said Owen inspired his teammates by attending games and practices even as his health deteriorated.
Becker President Robert Johnson gave Owen his diploma at a Boston hospital last week.
The private school of 2,100 students plans to hold a tribute to Owen at a Feb. 9 hockey game.
