This is what makes hockey such a great sport, Brotherhood! These two Lovell clubs battled it out all season in the ECEL and their respective games outside the league to ultimately meet each other in the ECEL Championship game on Sunday (Feb. 10th). It was a hard fought game by both clubs and harder fought battle by the Giants to be there as they started the playoff round as the #4 seed. However, regardless of the outcome this combined team picture says it all about the sport, the clubs and the organization. Many of these guys have grown up playing together or against each other for years and when the puck drops it is all business but in the end this is what you get to witness as a fan, parent and coach. Thank you guys for being classy players and congrats to our brother club, the Boston Advantage on winning the cup…..#alwaysnextseason #willbeback
January 31st 2019 marks a day in GIANTS history. For the first time in the clubs short history members of the organization have been selected as part of a futures junior hockey draft. The USPHL’s NCDC (National Collegiate Development Conference) division, the top division in the league, conducted their futures draft.
In the draft 3 current U15 GIANTS players were selected to three different clubs in the NCDC, they are:
Owen Drummney – Northern Cyclones
Cam Sullivan – Islanders Hockey Club
Nolan Sauer – New Hampshire Junior Monarchs
These players are selected by these clubs for future reasons and will be invited to partake in the respective clubs camps on future dates.
The GIANTS organization is extremely proud of these hard working players and this great accomplishment at such a young age. We look forward to the ongoing work you will continue to put in as GIANTS and contributions you will be making for years to come.
Congratulations Boys….who’s next????
After a stellar season as the 95 GIANTS U18 backstopper Jacob “Urbie” Urban will be finishing out the 2018-2019 season backstopping for his hometown NAHL Wilkes-Barre Knights.
In Urbie’s second year as a Giant he has helped the team to a 5th place position in the ECEL standings, a bid for the playoffs, part of the GIANTS 36-15-8 team record on the season, a member of the 2018-2019 ECEL All Star team and has been ranked 3rd in ECEL in goaltending with a .896 SP. Urbie is looking to help the team win their first ever ECEL cup when playoffs commence next weekend in Hingham.
At the conclusion of playoffs, Urbie will head south and report to the Knights. The Knights currently sit in 6th place in their division. Urbie is looking to hit the crease and help make an impact in the final stretch of the season with a goal of helping them climb to a playoff bid as the team heads into the final 2 months of the season. If Urbie gets the job done as he as here, we will all see the Knights in the NAHL playoffs.
Congratulations to Jacob and his family on this accomplishment. We look forward to the work and performance you will be putting in as a Knight.
As of right now ALL PRACTICES are 100% still ON for tonight! Once the snow starts, we will play it by ear, but right now we are ON!!
