The Kings continue to battle and face adversity. The main thing is the attitude of the players and the culture. This team continues to show up and give their best every time they hit the ice. They played their best game of the year despite losing 2-0 to Genesis HC. Rylan Coccia made 30 saves for the Kings to keep them in the game. “Even though we are still chasing our first win, the team has performed well during the recent games played, says Coach Keegan.” “Rather than looking at the final score, our staff has been encouraging the players to cheer individual moments during the game and rewarding players with recognition of those efforts post-game. The result has been one of the hardest played games during the ‘My Hockey Tournament’ consolation game.” Some of the players that have received Player of the Game Awards are Rylan Coccia, Reese Steimel, Tyler McGowan, Noah Daddario and Jaxon Wentzel. Keegan went on to say: “Part of the practice work has included guest coaches. Matt Reid from the Pennsylvania Huntsmen Junior Team has been helping the team with skating and competition drills. Also, Bantam AA Coach Tom Engle has been spending time at practice and games. Our sights are now set on putting that first ‘W’ on the board. We will first have to work through a tough upcoming weekend where we play the Bears, but we will have a chance to put what we have been practicing to use against the Chester County Cougars, concluded Keegan.”

The 10U A team went 2-1 in round robin play but lost in the semifinals. The 12U A American team went 1-1-1 and qualified for the finals but came up just short. There was so much to this trip outside of the tournament. Both teams got a private tour of Niagara University’s (Division I Hockey) locker room, and then got to watch Niagara take on Robert Morris University. It was a great weekend, and the teams got the chance to bond and build memories.

The 12U A Team travelled to Pittsburgh for the Veterans Cup. They won their final game 4-3 against the Oshawa Generals. The team also had a great time sightseeing and team bonding while on the trip.
