Annual Patrick Cup

The Quest for the Cup

Northford, CT

Every Sunday morning since early October our Mite Development teams have been competing against each other with one goal in mind, to raise “The Patrick Cup”.  For those of you that don’t know the history of our program, the “Patrick Cup” is named after the founders of our league, Lynn and Lester Patrick back in 1946.  Every Sunday morning the enthusiasm and excitement from the stands is overwhelming as the fans all cheer for their favorite player and team with each goal scored and each save made.  Every Sunday morning the intensity level of the game increases with hard fought battles for puck possession and many scoring opportunities, but with strong defense and outstanding goaltending, the games are always close.    

So which team will raise the “Cup” this year?  Will it be the defending champions, the Blades, with a strong offensive attack or the Tomahawks, with their outstanding defense and strong goaltending.  The Eagles, the first team to win the Cup are not to be taken lightly with their physical style of play nor are the Nighthawks who present a relentless fore-check system.  It’s late in the season and it’s still difficult to call, but each coach has confidence in his team and all have a positive attitude towards team success and that is to raise the “Cup”.

We are inviting all Warrior players and families and of course to all former Blades players and coaches, last year’s defending champion, to attend this exciting season ending event.  To all of our Clinic parents and players, this is a great opportunity to witness just where your child may be playing next season.   Semi-final games will be on Saturday, February 25, at 8:10 am, Blue Rink,  Patrick Cup Championship game and runner up game will be on Sunday, February 26 at 2:00 White Rink.   (Please note: all start times are subject to change)  Wear your Warrior jersey and come cheer for your favorite player and team as we celebrate the future stars of the Greater New Haven Shoreline “Warriors” Youth Hockey Program!!

Director of Player Development
