There is some exciting hockey news in the NEZ and for the Northstars. As some of you may have seen or heard, the Braves had made the decision to separate from the Northstars and run their program independently. The Northstars do not feel that this is in the best interest for the hockey program within the NEZ. As they always say strength is in the numbers. There are not enough players registered in all of NEZ for organizations to be working independently. Therefore, the NEZ Eagles and the Northstars will be working together to form teams this season. Both organizations feel that this will promote stronger development as well as form stronger competitive teams. Please watch the your email for future updates. Members of both organization are hard at work this summer and busy working through the logistics.
