Skills Nights with New England Training Systems (“N.E.T.S.”)

The Whalers Board of Directors is pleased to announce the engagement of New England Training Systems (“N.E.T.S.”) to run our Skills Nights for all age levels through the remainder of the season. These sessions will be lead by Dannel Malloy and Ryan Hatch with the assistance of our coaches. The BOD is excited to offer this benefit to the development of our young players in the organization and would like to thank, Bob Crawford, for making this arrangement possible.

Dannel has over 15 years of coaching experience at various age groups and levels. Dannel played for the Division 1 Rochester Institute of Technology Men’s Ice Hockey Team, as well as the Single A Danbury Whalers.  Dannel earned MVP team honors in high school for both ice hockey and cross country, along with being selected as an All-State Division 1 First Team Selection in CT for ice hockey.

Ryan attended Mount St. Charles Academy in Woonsocket, RI where he was a 3 year Varsity player.  Upon graduating from high school, Ryan played for the Lone Star Cavalry in the North American Hockey League (NAHL). After playing 2 years of Junior hockey Ryan attended Canisius College, then transferred to Salem State where he held the starting goaltending position for 3 years. With opportunities to go play Minor pro, Ryan decided that it was time to hang up the pads and follow his passion for coaching.

Uniform and Dress Code Requirements

Whaler Parents,

In follow up to our earlier communication in May, this is a quick reminder that effective January 1st, 2018 the revised uniform and dress code will be in effect.   

The organization requires all players to have a complete uniform which includes the following below. 

  • Jerseys (both black & white)
  • Socks (no large rips or tears)
  • Pant Shell
  • Tracksuit
  • Black Helmet

The above items are available for purchase through Cheshire Sports.  We would also like to remind all parents and coaches to please check the expiration dates on the helmets to ensure all dates are valid.  If the helmet sticker is worn off or has been peeled off it is considered expired and the helmet must be replaced.

Cheshire Sports has helmets, but you are not required to buy them from Cheshire Sports.  If you need any helmet stickers please reach out to your Team Manager.
