NESHL in a Nutshell

 The NESHL is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 2005 as a means for regional Sled Hockey teams to engage in competitive, sportsmanlike hockey. We are the first-ever organized, multi-state, adult sled hockey league in the U.S, with Teams from Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Western Mass, Maryland, Vermont, and Pennsylvania currently in our league.

Sled hockey, also known as sledge hockey, is the fast, exciting, rough-and-tumble version of ice hockey played primarily by people with lower limb mobility impairments. The game is essentially the same as “stand-up” ice hockey, the major difference being that the players use a sled with two hockey skate blades mounted under a seat.

Oct 24, 2010---PA vs NH and PA vs NY

 PA Center-Pedes (1) broke a "wrung" against NH Wildcats (5)

 

The Taylor Chase (4 points) show was co-hosted by ex-Bug Josh Moran (4 points). Luis Aguinaldo stared between the pipes (stopping 10 of 11) while Zach Jackson stopped 15 of 20 for PA. PA's lone goal was scored by blue liner DJ Wilson with a little help from Mike McDevitt.

 

 

 

PA Center-Pedes (5) BUG the NY Rangers (3)

 

PA's balanced attack proved too much for the NY Rangers. Lubin, the McDevitt's and Wilson provided all the scoring necessary for the win. Chris Meigil scored all three goals for NY; assisted by Santos (2) and Pauls (1). Tough to see the NY contingent packing for home; they'll be back.

Oct 24, 2010---Pack gets fleas from Bugz (4-1)

Game 2 of the CT Wolf Packs NESHL season was much improved from the game of the previous night even though it still didn’t go in Connecticut favor. The game started out in old time hockey fashion with big hits from both teams including one featuring PA Centerpede brothers Danny and Mike McDevitt and The Wolf packs Tyler Konvent that set the pace for the rest of the game.

 

CT was much more focused against the Bugz and they showed it.  Center Ryan Pelletier opening up the game early with the Wolfpacks first goal. Defense was also the Packs key to the first two periods. They only allowed 5 shots on goal in the first and 4 in the second. PA was able to get a 2 -1 lead in the first but could not extend that lead in the second.

 

The third period was a different story though.  The Pack seemed to have a bit of a collapse in communication and discipline with their defensive line. CT winger turned defensemen for the weekend Tyler Konvent took a roughing penalty in the 3rd that allowed PA to get a power play goal and make the score 3 to 1. The troubles didn’t stop there. Bobby Jenner of the Pack took two penalties in the 3rd allowing another power play goal.

 

Period three wasn’t bad for all of the Wolf Pack though.  Veteran goalie Karen Smith was CTs backbone in the third and for most of the game stopping an incredible 20 out of 24 shots on goal. 13 of those stops coming in the third period alone.

 

The final score was PA 4 and the Wolf pack 1 but if this game was any indication of what CT is capable of its going to be a long hard fought season for all the teams.

Oct 24, 2010---PA Center-Pedes (4) climb the ladder past CT Wolfpack (1)

CT started out the scoring with Ryan Pelletier finishing a breakaway opportunity against Zach Jackson (PA netminder). PA recovered during the first period with tallies by old-timer Doyle and "spark plug" Lubin. Although CT was held to two shots CT forwards did have puck possession.

 

PA speed and determination kept the CT threats by Jenner, Kunz and Buglione minimized. Blaine and Dan McDevitt rounded out the scoring with both goals assisted by Mike McDevitt. Karen Smith kept it close by stopping all but four of PA's shots.

Oct 24, 2010---PA Center-Pedes (7) provide Nepeta cataria to VT Sled Cats (0)

As expected PA defeated VT. PA's schedule had them moving up hill as the weekend progressed. The new PA coach (Scott)worked his squad through the paces required to battle against CT, NH and NY the following day. Although PA outshot VT 26-4, the Bugs couldn't match the Sled Cats enthusiasm.

 

Patrick Standen (VT netminder) had plenty of opportunities to break in his new trapper. Zach Jackson and Kevin Blaine (PA netminders) got to practice an "on-the-fly" goaltender switch!!! Vermont's deep bench was a combination of upcoming seasoned players AND many spirited newcomers. It is tough for a squad to be defeated so surely - the Vermontonians seem to know they are improving each game. Veterans Eric Gissendanner, Sandy Craig and John McArdle help sophomores Bryan Bathalon and Anna Wormer execute. It was not difficult to see that the entire VT team was having fun.
