Elite Hockey Prepares for the East Coast Elite League Holiday Classic

December 8, 2016

The 2016-17 East Coast Elite League (ECEL) season resumes on Friday, December 9th, with its third showcase taking place December 9th, 10th and 11th at Pilgrim Arena in Hingham, Massachusetts.  The weekend will be the final set of games for the ECEL 16U and 18U regular season before the leagues playoffs, January 27-29, 2017 championships in Hooksett, NH.

This weekend also marks the All Star Game events for both 18U and 16U divisions. The ECEL All-Star

 game, which will take place at Harvard University’s Bright Landry Arena, will benefit the United Heroes League.  There will also be a special appearance from NHLPA  member Dominic Moore that will be taking pictures with and meeting the players. prior to the game. 

 

"It's an honor to partner with the ECEL and the big tournament this weekend at Harvard University.  Luke Curadi and the entire staff, as well as the families with kids participating in the tournament, are making a tremendous impact this holiday season for the military families that are serving our great nation.  Thank you to everyone involved, you're making a difference for countless children who are separated from their military parents serving overseas during the holiday season and for that I am truly grateful." United Heroes League Founder Shane Hudella.

Started in 2009, the United Heroes League has helped thousands of military families offset the cost of hockey by collecting equipment and donations to assist its members.  Each of the teams at the 16U and 18U competing in the All Star Game will be named after NHL players who are also major United Heroes Leagues contributors. The East Coast Elite League directors and staff ask that in lieu of an attendance charge, fans and families make a donation of any amount to contribute to the charity.  In addition to the ECEL front desk, there will be a United Heroes League booth and representative with information on the charity along with a donation receptacle.  United Heroes League is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that helps keep military kids healthy & active while their parents are serving our nation.  To find out more please visit www.UnitedHeroesLeague.org."

The 16U game will lead the night off at 6:05PM with the pregame festivities and a 6:30PM puck drop, with Team Krug, coached by Michael Fransen of Team Maryland, Luke Curadi of the Elite Hockey Program and Oliver Fillion of Newbridge Academy.  Krug's opponent, Team Parros, will be led by Dan Borgia of NY Aviators, Sean Teakle from the Hill Academy and Jon Sokolosky of the Boston Shamrocks. There will be a ceremonial puck drop at 6:20PM where New England's United Heroes League Representative, Lieutenant Colonel Michael Moricas, will drop the puck. The 18U game at 8:30PM will be played by Team Burns and its coaching staff of Matt Anthony of Newbridge Academy and the Boston Jr. Rangers head coach John Hutcheon. Team Parise, led by Doug Orr of the Hill Academy and Christopher Ceransky from Team Maryland, will round out the 18U All Star game.

The past two ECEL events has seen the leagues’ players watched by NHL, NCAA, USHL, BCHL NAHL scouts and coaches, and the ECEL Winter Showcase will be no different.  Providing superior exposure and strong competition, the East Coast Elite League, continues to be one of the top showcase leagues in North America.

Elite Hockey Program Adds Luke Curadi to the Coaching Staff!

Luke Curadi Joins Elite Hockey Program at Cheshire Academy Coaching Staff

CHESHIRE, CT — Luke Curadi has been named Associate U16 Head Coach for the Elite Hockey Program (EHP) at Cheshire Academy. Curadi played Division I college hockey at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and professionally with the Adirondack Thunder in the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL).

Peter Alden, General Manager and Director of the EHP comments, "Luke is an up-and-coming hockey coach. He has a reputation for a tireless work ethic and knowledge of the game.  He welcomes the opportunity to share the keys to his success with young student-athletes. Combining Curadi's experience with our current staff, EHP has assembled a team of coaches that knows what it takes to advance our student-athletes to the next level."

Curadi a native of Cheshire, CT, comes from a strong playing background. He played junior hockey in the BCHL and the United States Hockey League (USHL), where he helped his team, the Dubuque Fighting Saints, win a Clark Cup Championship in 2011. The Championship team was coached by Jim Montgomery, the current Head Coach of Denver University. 

Curadi went on to attend Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (ECAC - NCAA DI), where served as an assistant captain during his senior year in 2015 and was a pivotal piece of the RPI defensive core, as a physical, stay-at-home defenseman. Curadi graduated on the Dean’s List in 2015 with a Business and Management degree. "I feel very fortunate and proud to have played Division 1 hockey in the ECAC at RPI for Seth Appert and his staff. Coming from one of the top college hockey programs in the country, I understand what it means to be a student-athlete at a great school and all the responsibilities that come with that," Curadi said. 

Shortly after graduating from RPI, Curadi signed a pro hockey contract with the Adirondack Thunder in the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL).  During his time in the ECHL, Curadi played in 55 games, contributed 8 points and had 88 penalty minutes. "I have learned the valuable lessons in development, recruiting and coaching from Seth Appert at RPI and former Fighting Saints Head Coach, Jim Montgomery currently at Denver University. I owe a great deal of this opportunity to all of my coaches and family for what they have taught me while playing.  I look forward to working with the Elite Hockey Staff and players and helping to grow both the players and the program." Curadi said. 

Elite Hockey is a Tier 1/AAA hockey organization with teams at the youth and midget levels.  EH operates its 16U and 18U program in conjunction with Cheshire Academy, where it provides its student athletes with New England Prep School education and full season Tier 1 hockey experience.  All teams under the EHA umbrella receive professional coaching, access to top leagues and tournaments as well as a dedicated staff that works to develop and advance its players.

About the AYHL

About the AYHL

The Atlantic Youth Hockey League is a Tier I travel league comprised of teams from the Atlantic, Southeast, New York and New England districts. The league has over 100 teams that come from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland and Virginia. It is the league’s mission to develop these young players and move them on to the next phase of their playing careers. The divisions begin at the Squirt level and proceed all the way through the Midgets. The Squirt, PeeWee and Bantam levels all have a Minor and Major component and players typically spend two seasons at a level before moving to the next level. The Major teams are typically the older team, comprised mostly of players playing in their second year at the level. The Midget level is broken up into 16U American, 16U National and 18U.

Tier I Youth teams have a large workload when it comes to their playing commitment. There are more practices, games and tournaments and generally, more traveling done, than with organizations playing at the Tier II or Recreational levels.

At the end of the regular season, all eligible teams will compete for the AYHL Championship at their respective level.
