The fitting date is Thursday, May 17 at our home rink (Haverhill Veterans Memorial, high school rink). CCM apparel and equipment will be offered at a 25% discounted rate (At the fitting only).


All NEP players are required to have WHITE helmetsNAVY gloves NAVY pants/shell. The program will provide each NEP player with a team issued CCM Skate Suit.  This requires a proper fitting so participation is 100% required. 


The fitting schedule will be as follows for the selected birth years: 


6:00pm - 7:00pm: All 2007’s & 2009’s

All new players are required to purchase their own uniforms to keep.  If you played for the Predators last season, and your uniform still fits, you do not need to purchase new jerseys.  Parents who do not bring a check or cash will not have their order placed until payment has been received. This is a one-time fee that will allow players to keep their jersey for multiple years. Each uniform comes with the player’s last name on the back, preferred jersey number (first come first serve, top 3 picks) and ties in the front. 


Players who need jerseys will be required to bring the following:

If players who need jerseys do not attend the jersey package will be $220.00, due to an individual jersey order upcharge. If you cannot make your scheduled hour please notify us and let us know which hour you will be attending.  Again this is 100% mandatory

 Looking forward to seeing everyone in May!

ANNOUNCEMENT - New Skills and Power Skating Coach
by martha crowther posted 02/07/2018

The New England Predators are excited to announce the addition of our new Skills and Power Skating Coach Jon Hutcheon!

Coach Hutcheon: Director of Player Development:
Jon started High End Hockey in 2010 with a small skills group and one summer tournament team. Since then, High End Hockey has grown and now trains over 500 players each summer among skills, 3-on-3 leagues, and tournament teams. Jon works with players of all levels: NHL, AHL, ECHL, SPHL, SM-Liga, SEL, DEL, NCAA D1/D3, Junior A, Midget, Prep School, and even Learn to Play. Jon also is a skills instructor for the NHL's St. Louis Blues at their yearly Prospects Camp in July. Jon has run skills clinics for the past 10 years and has become well-known in the hockey community for the fast-paced, high-tempo programs he develops. His teaching is second to none as he is able to quickly identify players’ deficiencies and work with each player to correct them. Having spent three years as a family advisor, Jon has helped players earn spots at prep schools, junior teams, and NCAA Hockey programs. Under his guidance, players have gone on to play at every level in North America. As a player, Jon had a successful career that included four (4) years playing professionally. He spent time in the Central Hockey League, Southern Pro Hockey League, and the All American Hockey League. Jon spent seven (7) seasons as a coach (four as head coach) with the Neponset Valley River Rats 18U team with whom he won a USA Hockey Tier 1 National Championship (2012-13), a Massachusetts State Championship, and three straight Mass Select League titles. He is the youngest coach in USA Hockey history to coach a National Championship team. His River Rats team compiled a 85-24-5 record over his four (4) seasons as head coach. From there, he spent three seasons with the Boston Jr Rangers 18U Tier 1 team. Currently, Jon is back with the NV River Rats 16U and 18U teams. Jon is also the New England Region scout for the Youngstown Phantoms of the USHL.

“Being in the market for a new Director of Player Development, we couldn’t be happier than landing Jon. His skills instruction is top shelf, as seen by the number of current NHL players like Connor Sheary (Pittsburgh, NHL), Brian Dumoulin (Pittsburgh, NHL) and Bobby Farnham (Springfield, AHL), who seek him out to help them get them ready for their professional season during the summer months.We are thrilled to have Jon be a key piece for our player’s developmental paths”
