The West Haven Youth Hockey program honored alumnus and former NHL player Eric Boguniecki with a jersey and banner ceremony this past Sunday, November 12, 2017. Boguniecki is currently an assistant coach with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
 

Boguniecki played 13 years of professional hockey, appearing in 739 games between Europe, the ECHL, IHL, AHL, and NHL. He accumulated 601 career points with 273 goals and 328 assists, along with 1,013 penalty minutes. He had 76 points in 178 games of his NHL career.
 

After scoring 17 goals and adding 28 assists in his first season with the Worcester Icecats of the AHL, Boguniecki went on to have an MVP season the following year in 2001-2002, scoring 38 goals and adding 46 assists for 84 points and a league most valuable player honor. Boguniecki was just the second American born player ever to win that award since Eddie Olson (1952-1953).
 

He was a three-time AHL All-star (2000, 2001, 2002), and AHL first All-star team selection in 2002. In 2000, Boguniecki played for Team USA at the World Championships in St. Petersburgh, Russia, and he also had the privilege of representing his country playing for the Select 16 and 17 teams while growing up.

Welcome to the 2017-18 West Haven Youth Hockey Season

 

On behalf the entire Board of Directors, I am pleased to extend to you a warm welcome to the 2017-18 West Haven Youth Hockey season.  I hope everyone had an enjoyable and relaxing summer, but now it is time to lace up the skates and get ready for another great year of youth hockey here in West Haven.

Thinking back on last season, a great deal of work and commitment went into improving our program and the product we deliver to our players and their families.  We asked for, received and thank you for your feedback. While much has been accomplished, we pledge to continue working to make West Haven Youth Hockey the premier youth hockey program in the state of Connecticut.

So what can you look forward to this season?  We will open with our first annual Opening Faceoff Weekend on September 8, 9 and 10 featuring games against Hamden Youth Hockey, a cook-out, tailgating and complimentary player t-shirts.  We will honor retired NHL and AHL player Eric Boguniecki, a WHYH alumnus and current Assistant Coach of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, on October 22 at Webster Arena and at Bennett Rink on November 12.  In addition you can expect:

  •   A Competitive, Educational and Fun atmosphere designed to develop hockey skills, sportsmanship, team-building and character
     
  •  Weekly Specialty and Goalie Clinics conducted by knowledgeable and experienced coaches
     
  •  Strong commitment to following USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM) with onsite clinics conducted by USA Hockey staff
     
  •  Free Skills and Drills on-ice sessions and optional dry land training
     
  •  Programs to help defray your costs such as Multi-player Family Discounts, Tuition Reduction Sponsorships and other Fundraising initiatives
     
  •  For beginning players a Learn to Play Program that will continue to work in conjunction with the Rink’s  Learn to Skate Program to draw new players to the sport of ice hockey
     
  •  An information filled Website, Live Barn viewing of games and competitive Tournaments
     

So I hope you share in my excitement and anticipation over what I believe will be a fun and successful year of youth hockey here in West Haven.  Good luck to everyone and I look forward to seeing you at the rink soon.

All the best,

Kyle

Kyle Bensen

President, West Haven Youth Hockey
