Several BJR teams hit the ice over Columbus Day Weekend. Here is quick recap from this weekend's action:
- The 2010E team went to Concord to take on the Patriots on Sunday. They emerged victorious with a 7-5 win and move to 2-0-1 in the young season. They will go to Seacoast next weekend to take on the 2-0-1 Spartans.
- The 09E's go to 2-0-0 on the season with a 10-4 win against the 95 Giants in Attleboro. The young Rangers lead the division in goals scored with 18, and goal differential (+9). They will take on the Seahawks (2-0-1) next weekend in Hyannis.

- The 05E's were in Tewksbury Saturday for a tilt with the Patriots that resulted in a 4-4 draw. There was a quick turn around that had the Rangers going to Rhode Island on Sunday for a matchup against the Saints that ultimately saw the same result as Saturday's contest, ending in another 4-4 tie. They have allowed the second fewest goals against (11) in the division this season.
- The 04E's competed in the U14 New England Fall Prep Tournament over the weekend. They won their first two games and advanced to the Semi-Finals Monday morning, but came up just short of making the Finals falling to the South Shore Kings.
A new season is about to begin. In a few weeks, players will be back on the ice to kick off the 2018-2019 campaign. We will be welcoming back many familiar faces after the busiest summer BIC has had since opening in 2008.
The Claddagh Fund hosted it's 3rd Annual Charity Hockey Tournament in May. The Claddagh Fund partners with many charitable organizations that range from pediatric cancer research to support for wounded Veterans and their families. This year's tournament featured two divisions, along with appearances from Ken Casey of the Dropkick Murphys and Legendary Boston Bruins Defenseman Bobby Orr.
BIC also proudly hosted the 3rd annual Cross-Check Cancer Women's Hockey Tournament. Thanks to many generous raffle & silent auction donations, and the hard work from several dedicated volunteers, over $10,000 was raised for Dana Farber Cancer Prevention research. The tournament itself grew from years past, as 15 teams competed throughout two divisions.
We welcomed back several skills programs this summer, including Elite Skills, High End Hockey, and Hill Hockey clinics. Goodrich Hockey School (run by North Shore Vipers Director Seth Goodrich) enjoyed growth from last summer, and had an excellent turn out for the Girl's Prep and College Exposure Showcases. GHS also held bi-weekly skates for 2 hours every Tuesday and Thursday night that allowed Vipers as well as players from other programs to continue their development throughout the summer months.
The Boston Jr. Rangers and Breakaway Total Hockey Training enjoy a successful summer with their Total Hockey Development program. With over thirty fully enrolled players, the program made great strides this summer. The program included a forty five minute workout followed by a 60 minute station based practice two times per week for 8 weeks. The program was run by Boston Jr. Rangers Head of Hockey Development Ryan Blair with assistance from professional, college and junior hockey players from the area. The high energy and detailed instruction proved to be very beneficial for players of all ages and abilities. Breakaway Total Hockey Training also ran a few different programs for small groups that saw athletes take a big step forward in their development.
We have made some improvements to our facility. The sinks in the men's restroom were replaced with a cleaner looking counter style setup (Women's room to be done in near future). Rink 1 was taken out for two weeks to replace and repaint the ice, and features a new logo at center ice. Player gates have been repaired and new game nets have been delivered. We are also preparing to begin a renovation of the restrooms and showers between locker rooms 1-4. The renovation will include brand new shower stalls, valves, etc. 2 new hot water tanks, and brand new insulated piping to feed the water into the team restrooms.
We are excited for this upcoming season. Thank you to everyone who participated in any clinics, tournaments, practices, etc. held at BIC over the past several months. Stay tuned for a new article soon previewing the upcoming seasons for the Boston Jr. Rangers and North Shore Vipers.
Tewksbury, MA: The North Shore Vipers are proud to share that U13 standout Julia Pellerin has announced her commitment to play hockey at Boston College (Class of 2027).
Coming off a strong regular season, the U13's earned an at-large bid to play in the National Tournament. With dozens of D-1 scouts in attendance throughout the course of the weekend, Pellerin shined. She produced 9 points in 6 games, including 2 goals in the Vipers 4-2 National Championship victory. Shortly after Nationals, Pellerin and fellow Vipers Mia Langlois and Devon Galizio won the 2018 U15 World Selects Invitational in Italy playing for the East Coast Selects.
Pellerin's performance on the big stage put the 13 year old in a position most girls her age can only dream of, an offer to play for one of the best Women's Hockey programs in the Country. The Future Eagle still has a few years to wait until hitting the ice at Kelly Rink, and will be back with the U13's this upcoming season to help defend their National Title.
Pellerin is the first Viper to commit to a Division 1 program since Olivia Bryant (Sacred Heart), and Veronica Alois (Brown) in 2015. Bryant, a Sophmore Defenseman was the top scoring blue-liner for Sacred Heart this season with 21 points (9-12-21). Alois, a Sophmore Forward played in all but one contest this season, and earned her fourth career multi-point performance (1-1-2) at the Agganis Arena against BU this past November.
Congratulations to Julia and her family on this outstanding achievement!
