Shamrocks U16 JWHL Squad Starts Regular Season 2-3-0

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

By James Murphy

The Shamrocks Under 16 team kicked their regular season off this past weekend, hosting a JWHL showcase at Ristuccia Arena. The Shamrocks played five games and finished the weekend 2-3-0. Boston fell 8-0 to Little Caesars in the opener Friday but then bounced right back later that night with a 6-3 win over the Washington Pride. On Saturday, the Shamrocks went 1-1 again beating Newbridge Academy 2-1 and then losing to North American Hockey Academy 1-0. On Sunday they lost a hard-fought battle to the Chicago Young Americans 2-1. 

"The weekend started out with a tough opponent and a tough loss but the girls got better as the weekend went on," head coach Molly Corl said. "It was definitely very encouraging."  One thing that really stood out to Corl was the scoring balance the girls established in these opening games.  "A lot of players got their first point of the season this weekend so it was overall positive step that we took this weekend," Corl said. "The effort was better and the girls were able to put the puck in the net. Getting the first JWHL win of the season under our belt was definitely a confidence booster for the girls."

The Shamrocks U16 team will be back in action October 27-28 as they play two games at Warrior Ice Arena in Brighton, Mass. and another at Allied Veteran's Arena in Everett, Mass. 

 

Boston Shamrocks Founder, Owner & GM Bob Rotondo Named One of New England Hockey's 100 Most Influential People

Saturday, September 2, 2017


in-flu-ence noun | 1. the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect itself.

New England Hockey Journal's 100 Most Influential People in New England Hockey are movers and shakers. They are head honchos and power players. They are team owners and college coaches and Stanley Cup champions.  They are — in a word — influential.

The people chosen by New England Hockey Journal are the people who shape hockey in New England — the players who are looked up to and emulated, the executives who decide the fates of teams and organizations, the coaches and trainers who mold young players, the writers and commentators who inform and analyze, the businessmen who chart the future of hockey, and even a miracle worker.

These are the 100 most influential people in New England hockey.  NEHJ really tried to get at the heart and meaning of the word influence. Who in New England has the capacity to impact hockey in our back yard the most? And NEHJ attempted to examine their influence right now, in today's game.  They solicited opinions, researched candidates, interviewed experts, debated (over and over) the criteria and the people and now they unveil their list in NEHJ's September 2017 issue.

Boston Shamrocks founder, owner & GM Bob Rotondo was chosen as one of  the 100 Most Influential People In New England Hockey.  According to NEHJ, he is a New England hockey pioneer.  "Rotondo is a jack-of-all-trades in the region's hockey scene, but his roles as general manager of the Boston Shamrocks and founder of the Northeast Women's Hockey League have made him a longtime pioneer for the women's game. He also serves as a goaltending instructor and manages Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, Mass., where the Boston Bruins held practice sessions for nearly three decades before the new Warrior Ice Arena opened last year."
