Hockey east and NHL littered with kids that played youth hockey in EHF.
"FYI most of the junior kids did not play in the FED look at the rosters."
What a lot of parents of younger kids don't understand is most local players that are now playing juniors did in fact play in the EHF at one time. My oldest boy played who is now playing college hockey has played for numerous teams over the years (BJT, BSB, SSK, BA) as well as fill-in for various tournament teams over the years. My guess is +95% of the local boys who are now playing juniors or college hockey at this time have played in the EHF at least for one season...it might be 100%. That's why it is pretty funny to see parents hate-on various programs and only to one day have their kids play for them. Like all of the Bandits haters, they do have a pretty good Jr. program or BA should your kid ever be good enough to play for their full season teams or SSK junior program or . . . .relax on the hate, it's a long road.
If your kid plays for a horrible coach but plays "elite" than it doesn't matter if it's EHF or E9. Having someone that is not a good influence on your kid coach him is outrageous. Parents do it for the wrong reasons
Boston Junior Rangers have good coaches
If a kid plays one year in the fed in all of his youth hockey years and it goes up on the Fed website. Keep writing those checks fellas, you're kids got a chance!
