Duffy's Tavern Honors WHYH

 

Duffy's Tavern

It’s that time of the year again! For those of you who don’t know, every year we dedicate our St. Patrick’s Day button to something or someone close to our hearts.

For our 36th year, we honor our roots. West Haven Hockey has been a staple in our community for decades, so it’s only fitting that we recognize and honor the 50th anniversary of West Haven Youth Hockey along with its incredibly dedicated and loyal coaching staff that have guided and mentored our children throughout the years.

No matter the ups and downs, West Haven is and will always be a hockey town! How many great memories do we have at Bennett rink watching our children or peers mature and develop into competitive athletes? How many dramatic games watched from the stands? How many heartbreaking losses and how many exhilarating victories? How many all-state performances and how many tournament wins? It all stems from the hard work and dedication of the West Haven Youth Hockey program.

We’re proud to call the many coaches and administrative staff our personal friends, and we will always welcome them into our home as they have so graciously welcomed us into theirs.


Cheers to 50 years West Haven Youth Hockey!

Keep making us proud!!


These buttons are available now compliments of Duffy’s Tavern.

Get ‘em while they last. Slainte!

Junior Ranger Kids Day at the New York Rangers

 


On Sunday, March 3rd “Junior Ranger Kids Day” at the New York Rangers vs Washington Capitals game one of our own WHYH players was able to participate in a once in a lifetime, unforgettable on ice experience. He was on the ice for the starting lineups and National Anthem with the Rangers players.

Congratulations to Mickey Dowd from our Peewee A team on representing WHYH in the World's Most Famous Arena, and on national TV while the game was being broadcast on NBC!

Thank you to the New York Rangers and the Junior Rangers Program for including our league in the day's event.

Learn to Play @ Bridgeport Sound Tigers...

 

 

Our Learn to Play program took the ice at the Bridgeport Sound Tigers game on Sunday during the second intermission for a quick inter squad scrimmage.

They played in front of thousands of people at the Webster Bank Arena during the “Play for Pam” Day, where the Sound Tigers raised $5,000 for the Pam Gardner Scholarship Fund! Pam was the principal of West Haven High School and her kids are a part of WHYH. She passed away after a hard battle with Cancer this past fall.

Thanks to the Sound Tigers for some great hospitality and for having our LTP Program back again this season!

WHYH 2018-19 Sportsmanship Award Winner



WHYH 2018-19 Sportsmanship Award Winner

Joey Honcz


Joey Honcz has been in WHYH for only 2 seasons, but it feels like he’s been here in West Haven for his entirety Joey Is a hard worker, who never gives up in practice and works hard to learn new skills. As one of the only returning full year bantams , Joey serves as a great role model to the first year kids, leading by example both on and off the ice. He also volunteers his time with the Mite B team. He comes to their practices and works with the kids running stations also working 1 on 1 with them. All of the Mite kids truly look up him.

Joey has also overcome some huge obstacles in his personal life. During his second year of squirts, he was diagnosed with cancer. He went through 6 rounds of chemotherapy and missed most of 5th grade. During his battle Joey received support from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, NY Rangers as well as NHL Players Jeremy Roenick and Marty St. Louis. Since his remission, Joey has been a camper at Camp Rising Sun, and raises money every year for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. He returned to hockey as a peewee and came here to WHYH for his first year of bantams.  In the two years of Joey being a part of WHYH, he has influenced the members of his team, his coaches and the young players of our league.

We at West Haven Youth Hockey are proud Joey and his family are part of ours!
