Outlaws Storm Hyannis for 16u Playoffs!

It was a busy week of playoff prep for two Outlaw teams
The Outlaws will be fighting for a pair of MPDHL championships this weekend!
 
The U16 Elite Black team has been one of the division's top 4 teams all season.  With only two teams from the division making the playoffs Chris Murphy's team knew it would have to win both games last weekend to qualify.
 
The Outlaws played the Dual State Riverhawks on Friday night in Hopedale. The Riverhawks scored first, but had battled back from early deficits all season long.  This game was no different, the with the Outlaws squeezing out a 3-2 victory.
 
On Saturday the team traveled to West Warwick for a challenging matchup against the RI Hitmen, the team with the lowest goals against average in the league.  The Outlaws struck early with a pair of quick goals and never looked back in a 5-1 win.  The Outlaws finished the season at 10-2-2, outscoring opponents 80-47.
 
Now comes the real challenge.  On Saturday the Outlaws face the GBL Bruins in Hyannis.  A win puts them in the championship game.  However the weekend turns out the team will continue playing having qualified for the State Tournament in Marlboro the following weekend.
 
When the U16 Selects opened the season with a 10-0 loss to the Express there weren't many people thinking the team would be playing in November.  Coach Michael Bolton's team has rebounded from an 0-7 start to put together a terrific run that saw them finish fourth in the U16 Select Division.
 
The Outlaws are back in action Saturday afternoon for a 1:30 semifinal face-off against the South Shore Kings.  The winners play Sunday in the championship.  Last time they met, the Kings squeaked out a 3-1 win over the Outlaws.  The Black and Orange will be looking for revenge in Hyannis.
 
In its first year of play in the tough MPDHL, the Outlaws are proud to have two teams competing in Midget tournament play.  Good luck in Hyannis!

Get back to basics with Monday Skills

The Outlaws have a new look, but the same commitment to player development!

Monday isn't everyone's favorite day of the week.  We put a fun weekend behind us and go back to work or back to school.

For Outlaws hockey players, Monday nights are when we get back to basics.  That's when we hit the ice for our weekly skill sessions.

This season, the Outlaws will be using Peter Belisle to run these weekly sessions.  Peter has been the Head Coach at the University of Massachusetts-Boston for nine seasons, and is part of New England’s premier hockey coaching family.

Belisle is a two-time ECAC Coach of the Year, and is the winningest coach in the history of the program with 100 wins and seven straight seasons with 10 or more victories – including a 17-6-4 record in 2013-14 and a first-ever ranking in the national Division 3 polls.

As a player, Belisle was a four-year letter winner at the University of Connecticut, winning the Huskies’ 7th Player Award in 1994.  Prior to going to Storrs, Belisle was a member of a National High School championship team at Mt. St. Charles, where he played for his father – legendary Mt. St. Charles coach Bill Belisle. 

Peter has coached at the USA Hockey Team New England Select 14 and Select 15 Player Development Camp and has served as head instructor at Bill Belisle’s Hockey School, the Mount Saint Charles Instructional Hockey Program, and the Connecticut Hockey Experience. 

Joining Peter on the ice for our skills sessions will be UMass-Boston assistant coaches Ryan Weston and Shawn Walsh.

For the second-straight year, the Outlaws will feature goaltending skills from Bertagna Goalie Schools.  All goaltender programs will be held under the supervision of former USA Olympic and Boston Bruins goalie coach Joe Bertagna, currently commissioner of the Hockey East Association.  Goalies at all levels of the Outlaws program will have unprecedented access to Bergtagna Goaltending coaches, Instructional DVDs, and one-on-one dialogue with one of the nation’s top goaltending coaches.

“We believe the combination of Peter Belisle and Joe Bertagna gives us the best skills instruction any program is offering in the state,” said Outlaws Director Tom Caron.  “USA Hockey has made it clear that our players need to get back to the roots of the game – individual skill instruction, small-side games, and an environment that promotes development, passion for the game, and character.  Peter and Joe have made careers instilling those traits in players and we’re thrilled to have them doing it for the Outlaws.  Bringing this level of skill instruction to all of our teams – from House to Premier – will help our boys and girls develop into the hockey players they are meant to be.”

This season, all skill sessions will be held at the Blackstone Valley Ice Arena in Hopedale, MA, the home of the Outlaws.  Players should check their individual team schedules to find out when their skill sessions take place this season.
