This year’s 4th Annual Pirate Treasure Silent Auction proved to be another success,   raising $3788.00.  I could have not have done it with out the wonderful efforts of all of our teams, local sponsors and families.  I would also like to thank all those that helped set-up, work and take down the silent auction.  I can’t say thank you enough to few people that especially helped me in acquiring donations for the silent auction-Stephanie Symoniak, Tracy Durant and Chris Pietsch.  I also want to thank Jessica Bennett, Rachel Ersbo and Joan Nelson for helping out the day of auction.  I can’t say thank you enough to NMYHA for a very successful silent auction.  I look forward to bigger and better next year.

BANTAM A

The Bantam A's took 3rd place in the Hutchinson tournament the weekend of 2/1-2/2!  They played hard to win their first game against Marshall on Saturday morning.  A tough loss against Westonka happened Saturday night, but the team slept well and rallied to win the 3rd place trophy against St. Louis Park on Sunday in a very tough and competitive game!  What a great way to end tournament season!

 

PEEWEE A

NM Peewee A beats New Prague to win Consolation Championship! They fell to Red Wing in the first game of the Northfield Tournament but came back strong to beat Dodge County and New Prague (in overtime!) to win the consolation!  Way to go, Peewee A Pirates!

Congrats  North Metro Peewee B1 , playing in the Richfield tournament this past weekend and  taking 2nd place trophy. Taking Consolation trophy earlier this season in the Breezy Point tournament Peewee B1 continue to make progress each week and are bonding as a team. Looking forward to 2nd half of the season.

Sunday they played for the Consolation Championship against North East Metro-Red and won 4-1!  Great job!

Jack's Pledge

Please join us in supporting one of our Minnesota Hockey families

 
NMYHA is honored to collaborate with Minneapolis Hockey in honoring “Jacks Pledge: Playing Hockey The Right Way."
 
Endorsed by the Jablonski family, and Jack himself, Jacks Pledge is a player - and coach - driven program designed to emphasize playing hockey the right way by players and coaches pledging to minimize violence and enhance safety in hockey. By taking Jack's Pledge, players and coaches commit to knowing the rules of hockey and playing by a strict interpretation of the rules. Players pledge to do their best to avoid penalties and situations that lead to dangerous play and unsafe situations. Coaches commit to teaching the rules of hockey, promoting strategies that minimize risk to ALL players and emphasizing clean play and a safe environment.
 
Minneapolis Hockey will donate "Jack Jablonski #13 In Our Hearts" helmet stickers to all teams who show their support for playing hockey the right way through Jack's Pledge. We will be receiving these stickers shortly for all NMYHA teams.
 
Chris Magner has graciously donated a banner for NMYHA to display at BPCAC. This will
be present at this weekend’s Pirate Tournament. There will be T-shirts for sale (courtesy
of Dave’s Sports Shop Fridley) and “Jabby13, Stay Strong” bracelets (courtesy of BSM Girls Hockey Team). All proceeds will go directly to the Jack Jablonski fund.
 
Individual NMYHA team managers can contact Kevin “Reggie” Redding at 612-978-1630 to place orders for their team, family and friends.

A note from D3

D3 wants everyone to know they are making a strong effort to reduce head contact (and hopefully the prevalence of concussions).

Hockey is not an end. It is a means to an end. There is nothing inherently good about scoring, forechecking, backchecking, or winning. It is only good if it promotes education and learning. Those that come away with a higher work ethic, honesty, and integrity are the true winners. Hockey does not build character, rather it reveals it. It's these values that do more than anything else we develop that will be the true measure of how successful the NMYHA is.
