- NOTICE TO INTERESTED OVER 50 PLAYERS SATURDAY AFTERNOON SKATE  -
click here for details

August 1, 2014

Dear Skaters,

    Let me begin by recapping the 2013-14 season.  In the East Division congratulations are in order for the effort put forth by the Turtles in the 2014 playoffs. The Turtles finished the season six points out of first place and seven points from last place and with a record of 14wins 13 loses and 3 ties, they represent the commissioners objective of parity. After a surprise overtime upset over the revised Catamounts in the quarterfinals, the hard working Turtles took down the Big Red whom most considered to have a lock on the championship. The well balanced Turtles easily handled the Blackbears in the finals with their tenacity and solid goaltending by Lloyd Ternes.  The high scoring duo of Nazzaro & Brazis (combining for sixteen points in three playoff games) proved too much for the last place Blackbears.  The scoring race was dominated by rookie sensation Dan Muse of the Wildcats who won despite missing a month from an undisclosed upper body injury late in the season. Veteran goaltender Joe Bertagna carried the Wildcats to one of their best seasons dominating the league for most of the season despite losing everyone’s favorite mercenary in a late trade with the Catamounts.

  The West Division saw the Eagles take an early command of the league backboned by the stingy goaltending of a young Sean Silverman and the high scoring John Spano.  Conversely the Panthers, even with three of the leagues top ten scorers spent most of the season in the cellar. Challenged by many medical issues the entire west division was continually in a state of flux causing constant juggling to provide parity in the league. The highlight of the playoffs was in the semifinals as the Eagles won a hard fought 3 -2 game with the Tigers by holding the high scoring Craig Bergeron to only one goal, after which the Huskies squeaked out a victory in overtime as the eighty-three year old Lenny Guimond scored his first goal of the season to send them to the big dance. The Eagles got two goals in the finals by the legendary former turtle, Wally Macleod, to be the first team to go wire to wire and claim bragging rights for the summer.

The plans for the 2014-15 season are currently similar to the last couple of years. The format for the seventeenth season will ultimately be determined by the number and ability of the players who sign up. Parity is the ultimate goal and the commissioner will use all the tools available to accomplish that goal.  All current players in the league who sign up by Aug 31, 2014 will be guaranteed a position and then new and former players will be added on a first come first serve basis. Opening day will be Tuesday Sept. 9, 2014.  Please list on your application which league you would like to play in as well as any personal requests and I will do my best to accommodate, keeping parity in mind. 

          The over sixty league will continue on Sunday afternoons and will begin on   October 5, 2014  The format will depend on the enrollment.  The league will be open to all skaters sixty or older and to players that are 57 or older and have never been classified as an “A” player in the over 50 league.

     Applications for all of the above are available upon request at Hockeytown’s main office. 781-233-3666. Anyone who knows of an interested skater for any of the above programs should call or e-mail htusainc@aol.com  the rink for an application. All applications can also be downloaded from Hockeytown’s website at www.hockeytownsaugus.com

 

Larry Abbott  Commissioner  Hockeytown USA

“Use it or lose it”

Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul.
- Douglas MacArthur      

“As athletes age they realize that not only does it take longer to recover from a workout but also from an injury. As a physical therapist I treat many athletes and non-athletes alike for all types of injuries. The healing potential in younger cells is much greater. However, active people heal much more effectively than inactive or unhealthy people. I have seen 60-year- old athletes heal as fast as teenagers. So, for those who are getting older and staying active, keep it up! Training throughout the life span is very beneficial. If you don’t use it you’ll lose it…even faster.”   Tom Labisch
