Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League: Event-heavy schedule will highlight Year 4

Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League: Event-heavy schedule will highlight Year 4

The Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League will feature an event-heavy schedule in 2015-16, its fourth year.

The season will include around 2,000 league games in regular season play and a 27-event schedule. Commissioner Henry Lazar and his staff have decided on 27 events to maximize exposure and competition that is different from a team’s local league.

The EJEPL will be home to 68 organizations, with 250 teams in 15 states. The event list includes playoffs at all levels, all-star jamborees and organization-hosted showcase events for all levels.

The new division set-up includes Diamond Level 1 for top teams, Diamond Level 2 for above average teams, Futures for average teams and either Futures 2 or MADD for weaker teams.

The levels of competition are critical for the teams to enjoy competition at their own realistic level. The 2015-16 season will begin with huge showcases in both Philadelphia, Pa., and Brewster, N.Y., on the Aug. 28-30 weekend.

The Philly 10-11-12-13-14U showcase will be run on 12 rinks at Aston, Pa., The Pond in Delaware, the Igloo Ice Center in Mt. Laurel, N.J., Hollydell Rink in Sewell, N.J., Revolution Ice Gardens in Warwick, Pa., and Old York Road Rink.

The teams will play four league games each in the 140-team event. The Brewster Bulldogs will host their showcase at the Brewster Ice Arena and the Danbury (Conn.) Arena. There will be many playoff venues and three all-star jamboree venues, including Brown University for the 15-16-18U Diamond levels.

“This is a very ambitious schedule of events, complete with EJEPL supervisors at each event,” said vice commissioner Larry Nastasi.

The league is currently working on the Girls Conference (12U, 14U and 16/19U) and the 16U and 18U split-season divisions. Webmaster Nastasi is working hard on the website EJEPL.com, with an expected July 1 completion date. Included on the improved site will be all the divisions 21 in all, an online store and college information for student-athletes and parents, as well as many other features.

The EJEPL is looking into a broader competition plan for 2016-17 which would include a Canadian and European team “Super Showcase Jamboree” and a “Full Season” (35-game) option for Independent USA Hockey youth and midget programs. EJEPL officials will be meeting with foreign league officials shortly.

The Brown University All-Star 15-16U and 18U Jamboree, scheduled for Jan. 24, 2016, will again include Division 1 college coaches’ seminars before their games.

The fully USA Hockey-sanctioned EJEPL also follow all adult screening policies and safe Sport adult requirements. The EJEPL is proud to work with 68 organizations in 15 states with 250 teams.

Organizations in North Carolina, Texas, Utah, Michigan and Illinois have already inquired about 2016-17. The entire EJEPL staff will be working extremely hard on the “professional” aspect of the entire operation.

The EJEPL prides itself on a non-political and 100 percent fair and honest operation. The EJEPL will remain “First Class” from top to bottom. The EJEPL app is available for free from Apple’s App Store. Just click the logo on the home page of the EJEPL website.

Future plans also call for the EJEPL “Family College Advisory” service, which will begin in 2016-17. The EJEPL staff will advise on the college process, including transcripts, college visits, the Clearinghouse, Academic Index for Ivy League schools, financial aid aspects, the right “fit”, resumes, contact letters, DVD’s, how to interview, and many more aspects, all at a very reasonable price.

Boston Bandits sweep 16U, 18U divisions for twin titles

Boston Bandits: Organization celebrates 18U, 16U championships

Boston Bandits: Organization celebrates 18U, 16U championships

The Boston Bandits finished in first place in the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League’s 18U division, so they were already the favorite heading into the playoffs.

Never being wont to disappoint anyone (except their opponents), the Bandits finished the EJEPL 18U playoffs the same way – champions.
On the same Feb. 6-8 weekend, the Bandits’ 16U team, which finished third in the North and West conference of that EJEPL division, also hoisted the league championship.

The Boston Bandits 18U team celebrates its EJEPL 2014-15 championship.

For the 18U team, which had a 43-14-7 record that included EJEPL, East Coast Elite League and non-league games, it was a true culmination.

Head coach Scott Drevitch, who led the Bandits to a Metropolitan Junior League championship in 2014, had four players join him on the 18U squad this year. These players were, all ’96’s, Cody Braga (Middleboro, Mass.), Derek Clancy (Freetown, Mass.), Mike Taormina (Plymouth, Mass.) and Erik Hajdu (Kosice, Slovakia).

“These four players brought with them a championship attitude from last year and that just carried over to the other team members this year,” said Drevitch, who will coach the 18U team again next year, as well as the Bandits’ new EHL Elite team. “The team worked really hard and all the players developed and improved their game. They got rewarded for their hard work.”

Looking at all 62 games, the clear offensive leader was Merrimack College recruit Logan Drevitch, a ’98 from Middleboro, Mass. He put up 51 goals and 104 points.

Other offensive leaders were Latvian Eduards Tralmaks (77 points), Taormina (70), Hajdu (63) and Braga (59).

“I felt we were a good puck possession team,” said Drevitch. “The players really bought into the systems, which helped produce another successful season. Helping players advance and winning championships, I cannot ask for anything else.”

The Boston Bandits 16U team celebrates with its EJEPL championship banner in Clifton Park, N.Y.

At the 16U level, the team was buoyed to a 14-6 record in the EJEPL by Cooper Jones, who scored 37 points in 19 games to place fourth in the league. Justin Bofshever placed just outside of the top 10 at 32 points in 19 games.

“It was great,” said coach Mark Jones. “We were the sixth seed going in, we got into a tough bracket in the round robin. We won the first game in OT, the second in the third period and the third game with three seconds left. Then we rolled in the semis and finals.

“The first game was the most disciplined game we played all year, and I thought we had something special then,” Jones added.

In the playoffs though, the Bandits exploded offensively. Bofshever had 20 points in his five games. Chad Merrell played in five games and had 11 points, and Jones and Tyler Viera both finished with eight points to give the Bandits all four of the top four scoring positions in the league.

Bofshever had games of four and five points, as well as one seven-point game against the Greater New York Stars.

“He just went off the hook,” said Jones. “They wanted us to pick an MVP if we won the final. It was between him and some other guys. Then he scored five in the final.”

Norman Blake led the way in goal for most of the playoffs, going 4-0 and registering a goals against average of 1.71 and a save percentage of .947. He shut out the Maryland Selects, making 26 saves for the championship-clinching 6-0 victory.

“The three kids who carried us were Bofshever, Blake and Cooper Jones,” added Coach Jones.

Bandits welcome back Pothier: The Boston Bandits are excited that former NHL player Brian Pothier will return as the Director of Skills and Skating.

Pothier will join Todd Stirling, Scott Drevitch, Cullen Lundholm and Robbie Donahue in a star-studded cast of professional skill and skating instructors.

EHL, MET updates: The Eastern Hockey League team finished the season with an 18-20-2-4 record to earn a playoff spot. However, they were eliminated in the first round by the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights, two games to one.

The team had several commitments in February – Nick Pezza to Johnson and Wales, Brandon Seal to Salem (Mass.) State University, Matt Michalke to Babson College and Jordan Court to UMass-Dartmouth.

In the Bandits’ final season in the MET, the team finished 8-30-0-5. They missed the MET playoffs, which took the top 16 teams.

Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League: Boston Bandits sweep 16U, 18U divisions for twin titles

The Boston Bandits’ bus with both Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League™ championship teams aboard had a fun-filled trip back to Boston from Albany, N.Y., in the snow on Feb. 8 with two very happy teams and their coaches whooping it up.

The Bandits’ 16U team entered the playoffs as the sixth seed of eight teams and was in a very difficult group of teams.

“Coach Mark Jones does a great job, so it was no surprise how well the 16U Bandits played,” said commissioner Henry Lazar.

The Boston Bandits 16U team celebrates with its EJEPL championship banner in Clifton Park, N.Y.

In the 16U round robin, the Phil Coleman bracket consisted of the Maryland Selects, Richmond Generals, Red Bank Generals and GNY Stars. Maryland and GNY came out of that bracket to face the Bandits and Northern Cyclones from the Gary Dineen bracket. That bracket also included the New York Apple Core and CP Dynamo.

The Bandits beat the Cyclones with three seconds remaining in the game, on a goal by Justin Bofshever.

After easily getting past the GNY Stars, the Bandits faced the Maryland Selects, who won a tough game 3-2 over the Cyclones.

“Maryland coach Bud Buonato did a great job coaching his players and getting them to play very disciplined hockey,” said vice commissioner Larry Nastasi. “The Cyclones’ Frank O’Connor is an excellent coach, and his day will come.”

The Bandits shut out Maryland in the final, 6-0, and Bofshever was named MVP for the 16U playoffs, scoring 20 points in five games.

The 18U Bandits team, however, was the favorite and dominated all weekend. Coach Scott Drevitch’s team went 5-0, easily winning the Championship. The Bandits 18U team is loaded with outstanding players and was the No. 1 seed in the Jim Prior bracket with the CP Dynamo, Northwood School and Cleveland Lumberjacks. The Bandits went 3-0 and Northwood went 2-1 to advance.

The Northwood School, coached by Lem Randall, kept getting better all year and was one of the teams that could have knocked off the Bandits.

The Cyclones 18U team went 3-0 in the round robin, beating out the San Diego Gulls, Igloo Jaguars and Connecticut Oilers in the Dan Esdale bracket.

The Boston Bandits 18U team celebrates its EJEPL 2014-15 championship.

In the semifinals, the Bandits beat the Oilers 3-2 and Northwood beat the Cyclones, 4-1.

After defeating Northwood 3-1 in the round robin, the Bandits beat Northwood 6-0 in the championship final. Merrimack College commit Logan Drevitch was named MVP for scoring seven goals and adding an assist for eight points.

Bandits general manager Todd Stirling said the twin banners will hang in the lobby of Bridgewater (Mass.) Ice Arena for all to see.

The EJEPL thanks all the volunteers at Clifton Park and CP Dynamo for their work at the 16U/18U playoffs.

The playoffs were hosted by the CP Dynamo and owner Scott Babrow. It snowed all weekend, but nothing the City of Albany or the rink couldn’t handle.

The 12U-13-14U playoffs will be held Feb. 20-22 in Aston, Pa., home of the Philly Little Flyers.

Philadelphia Revolution: Corey Primeau named director of player personnel

Philadelphia Revolution: Corey Primeau named director of player personnel

The Philadelphia Revolution is proud to announce Corey Primeau as their new assistant general manager and director of player personnel.

Primeau has spent the past three seasons coaching at the Tier 1 and Tier 2 levels with Team Comcast in Pennsauken, N.J.

This season, Corey has been the assistant coach with the Revolution U14 Elite team. General manager Chris Kanaly believes that Primeau will be a valuable resource for the Revolution program as it builds its youth teams.

“Corey brings a wealth of experience from the youth level and will be able to actively recruit and retain the Philadelphia region’s top young talent that will eventually become the lifeblood of our system here in Philadelphia,” said Kanaly.

Corey comes from a hockey family. His father Keith Primeau played 15 seasons in the NHL, as did both of his uncles, Wayne Primeau and Derrick Smith.

Additionally, Corey has worked within the hockey business for the Durham Hockey Institute as both a scout and coach after his college days.

“The Revolution program has been carefully adding the right people at all levels,” added Kanaly. “From the youth staff, on up through our junior programs, we have been organically growing our teams into a first class organization that will compete and win at all levels.”

“This is a dream come true,” said Corey. “It is a huge step for me in a direction that I want to be going. I don’t know too many organizations that treat you like the Revolution has treated me, and so I am grateful for that. Being able to work with Chris [Kanaly] is a great opportunity and I am looking forward to building the program at all levels and the challenges that come with it.”

The Philadelphia Revolution will field teams at the U12, U14, U16 and U18 Elite levels and Junior A and B for the 2015-2016 season. The Revolution are proud members of the Eastern Hockey League, Metropolitan Junior Hockey League, Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League and the East Coast Elite League.
