NHL, Commitments, and More!

The Tier 1 Elite Hockey league continues to demonstrate why it is the best amateur hockey league in the country, as seen by the impressive number of players who have been recruited to higher levels of the game, and the continued success of our alumni.

 

Four alums recently made it to the Show; former Phoenix Jr. Coyotes player Henrik Samuelsson being signed by the NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes, former Milwaukee Jr. Admiral Troy Grosenick being signed by the San Jose Sharks. Michael Houser from the Pittsburgh Pens Elite being taken by Florida Panthers, and Nick Shore from the Colorado Thunderbirds being snatched up by the LA Kings.

 

Victory Honda alum Tony Calderone was recently named to the USHL All Rookie team for the 2012-2013 season. 

 

All told, this season over 230 current players and alumni were drafted to continue playing hockey at all levels of the sport.  Congratulations to all of the following and continue to make us proud!
