In what has become an annual Thanksgiving tradition, more than 40 of the top teams in the region will travel to Haverhill to compete in the 2014 Warrior Thanksgiving Tournament. This year’s event – which will be held on November 28-30 – features five divisions.
Throughout the season, the Valley Jr Warriors will highlight the accomplishments of its alumni who are currently competing at top collegiate programs. This week’s feature is on Jake Kulevich, who plays for 6th-ranked Colgate University.
Three talented Warrior players - Eric Lester, Evan Pennucci and Drew Blackwell of the VJW '03 Elites shown above - were named Elite 9 Hockey League Players of the Week. All three teams - '00 Elites, '03 Elites and the '04 Elites - have been impressive in league play.
Not only are the VJW '03 Selects taking down top elite teams in the Boston Hockey League's American Division this season, the players are also found time this past weekend to be a part of "Bruins Faceoff Live" on Pee Wee Saturday.
