Representing Team France December 14 - 21, 2014 in Rega, Latvia
"It has always been a dream to play and to represent my country. I am really happy and lucky to have this opportunity..."Coming to the U.S. And having the opportunity to play for the Wolf Pack gave me more experience. Here I have more than 60 games a season and 4 practices a week which helps me to develop a lot!
Congratulations to the U18 Wolf Pack team that will be heading to Amherst, NY March 26-29, 2015! Special thanks to all the players, parents, management and the coaches Doug Messier and Scott Robson!
"When a group of talented players commit themselves to the team concept great things can be achieved. The WP U 18 Major Midget team were totally committed on Championship Sunday. They put on an awesome display. There were no passengers. It was a great team effort which rewards them with a chance at the Nationals. Coach Robson and I are delighted with the results and how they were achieved."
- Doug Messier
Coach Robson added after the 6-1 victory over Selects Hockey Academy, “This is a very fun group to coach! They got better and better as the year progressed and their ability to face adversity and push through it was impressive. There is certainly a good amount of talent but what has made them successful is the ability to pull together and feed off each other’s energy. It is a special thing to watch 20 kids from several different schools come together and play as selfless as they did.”
Cromwell, CT - Phillip Kemp - DOB 1999, Height 6'2, Right Shot, Position Defense -- Commits to Brown University!

Wolf Pack Coach, Toot Cahoon said: If Phillip continues to get stronger, he has tools to be good player at the next level, for sure".
Cromwell, CT - Matt Gosiewski, 6’3”, 200 lb. 1998, power forward commits to Harvard University! Gosiewski is a strong skater with soft hands and an excellent shot. Gosiewski's size, vision, patience and deceptive plays in the o-zone, highlight his offensive talents.

Cromwell, CT: 1998 Eric Esposito has committed to the University of New Hampshire. Esposito, a West Haven, CT native has played for the Bobcats/Wolf Pack program since a Pee Wee and has really grown into an elite player.

I got a lot better playing for coaches Alden and Novodor in every part of my game. The Wolf Pack organization is definitely the main reason I am where I am today and really appreciate all they've done for me."
"I really felt at home on my visit at UNH. I was really impressed with their coaching staff and tradition at the school. I think it's the right move for me and couldn't be more excited to get there in a few years!"
