Appleby College is an international independent school (Grades 7-12) located in Oakville, Ontario, founded in 1922 by John Guest, a former headmaster of the Preparatory School at Upper Canada College. Guest dreamed of establishing a small boarding school in the country, and did so with the support and financial assistance of Sir Byron Edmund Walker, a prominent Canadian businessman and patron of the arts. Today, Appleby is a co-educational day and boarding university preparatory school with a curriculum based around the liberal arts. It is situated on Lake Ontario in Oakville, Ontario, roughly 50 kilometres west of Toronto. Students are drawn primarily from Oakville, Burlington and Mississauga, but boarding students come from other parts of Canada and throughout all continents of the world. Appleby is a member of the G20, the International Round Square Organization and the Canadian Independent Schools Athletic Association.
Head Coach Dan Poliziani brings 25 years of coaching experience to this program in addition to seven years of playing experience at the OHL, NCAA and professional hockey level. Highlighting Dan’s career is his rich nine-year history with NCAA college hockey while at Yale University, an Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference member. Poliziani’s most recent involvement with the Canadian Hockey Association’s Under 17 Program is also one of his more noteworthy accomplishments. Dan spent two years with the program, acting both as an assistant coach with the silver medal team at the world Challenge Cup and as the head coach in 2000 in Nova Scotia where they brought home the bronze medal. Dan is a mentor/master coach at the minor hockey level while maintaining an ongoing influence on the development of coaches and athletes alike in the sport of hockey. Dan is a graduate of Yale University. He left Yale in 1982 as the all-time scoring leader and captained the Bulldogs in his senior year. Also helping behind the bench are a team of dedicated assistant coaches that include Mike Moores and Wayne Murray.
The Double Blue return with many players from last year, including a tandem of goaltenders who have now shared the net for three years. A strong blue line is led by assistant captain Daniel Poliziani who is joined by Steven Murray, Steve MacInnis, Aidan Board and newcomers Travis Blinkhorn and Brenton Chilton. Returning forwards to watch remain top liners, assistant captain Mitch McMullin, captain Matt Rubinoff and Liam Board. The Double Blue play a puck-possession game and are fun to watch.
The Kents Hill School boys varsity hockey team opens the season with many new faces in the program. After graduating 13 players from the 2009 team, the varsity squad welcomes 16 newcomers to the program. The team is captained this year by Patrick Huard of St. Arthor, New Brunswick, and the assistant captain is Tim Sullivan of Rye, New Hampshire. Key returners also include Ethan Pelletier, Ryan Dorso, Bryan Gillentine and Brandon Bourgeois. Adding to the senior ranks include PG’s Matt Dalton and Matt Gibson. The core of the team is made up of young players rising up from the ranks of the junior varsity program or who are new to the program. Key young players include sophomores Logan Day, Mark Dufour, Ben Harwood, Louis Gagne, Jared Cockrell and Caleb Fizer and juniors Ryan Caswell, Jacob Friedman, Travis St. Pierre and Carson Johnstone. David Bakin and Cole Godfrey are newcomers to the program and are expected to make a positive impact on the program. In goal, junior Nick Devine will see the majority of the games as he will be backed up by Kyle Porter and Dakota Jankovich.
Also new in the program for 2011 is Assistant Coach Stan Moore. Coach Moore comes to the program with 25 years of Division I coaching experience. He has coached at Providence College, Colgate University, Union College and Brown University and was twice selected the ECAC Coach of the Year in 1996 and 2003 while at Union. Coach Moore is also highly involved with USA Hockey where he has served as a National Festival coach from 2002 to 2009 and was also selected to coach the USA Under 17 Team in the 2005 Five Nations Tournament in Switzerland, where the US team won the gold medal.
Assistant Coach Jeff DeHaven enters his fifth year with the varsity program and has been involved with the Kents Hill hockey program at all levels for the past for 20 years. Prior to joining the varsity program Coach DeHaven was the head coach for the Boys Varsity “B” team.
Starting his seventh season as the head coach for the varsity program is Larry Cockrell. In his time at Kents Hill the program has qualified for the New England Prep playoffs twice, and in 2008 won the New England Prep School Division II Championship. Prior to arriving at Kents Hill, Coach Cockrell was an assistant at North Yarmouth Academy for three seasons.
The Northwood School boys hockey program fields three teams: Junior A, Midget AAA and High School. The girls hockey program competes at the prep level. Hockey at Northwood has a tradition of outstanding achievement; both players and coaches have gone on to renowned careers at collegiate and professional levels. Northwood graduates have gone on to attend such schools as Colorado College, Denver, Ohio State, UNH, Mercyhurst, Brown, Harvard, Michigan, Clarkson, Boston University, Boston College, Williams, Oswego State, Notre Dame, Plattsburgh State, Middlebury, Wisconsin and Providence. Fourteen alumni have played in the National Hockey League. Northwood proudly acknowledges its graduates who have gone on to become Olympians: Tom Mellor '68, Tony Granato '83, David Tretowicz '87, Jim Campbell '91, Chris Therien '90, Mike Richter '85, Andrea Kilbourne-Hill '98, and Craig Conroy '90.
As of the first week in December the Northwood Midget team stands at 8-3-1 and will be traveling to New Hampshire for two games as well as the Brook/Pingree Tournament before attending the Stanstead Invitational in early January. Victories have come against the NJ Rockets “B,” CP Dynamo, Académie St-Louis, and Hoosac School thus far.
Returning players are found at every position. Returning in goal this year is tri-captain Chris Cooney (’11) and Erik Powell (’11) and on the blue line is Dan Paolillo (’11) and tri-captain Victor Dzenis (’11). The returning forwards includes Jack Nardiello (’11), Brian Hennessey (’12), and Travis Jeke (’11).
Incoming players on the blue line who have made an immediate impact include defensemen Andrew Nelson (’12), Alex Pfund (’12), and John Regnart (’12). Forwards who have played large roles include tri-captain Fred Linge (’11) and his brother Christian Linge (’12) as well as Olli Viita (’12), Sam Akins (’11), Hayden Town (’13), and Robbie Hennessey (’14).
The 2010-2011 Spartan season outlook can be characterized by essentially one word: change. Former head coach Chris LaPerle has moved on to join the coaching staff at McGill University, while former assistant coach and Coordinator of Hockey Programs James Rioux has been appointed new head coach. Rioux begins his tenth season with the program and eagerly awaits the new challenge. The new coaching staff is rounded out with the addition of former JV coach Jason Corcoran and former player Thomas Perretta ’06, who recently graduated from Franklin Pierce University. Moreover, this year’s team includes a completely different line-up, for last year’s MPHL divisional champions included no fewer than 12 seniors who have since moved on to junior hockey or college. Needless to say, the team will take on a very different look this year but should remain competitive and exciting to watch.
When asked what to expect this year, Rioux said: “I am very excited with the new challenge that awaits us this season. Our new recruits are absolutely phenomenal individuals with tremendous character. We will be slightly younger this season, particularly on defense. However, our new guys bring a mix of grit, speed and humility that should allow us to compete in every game. We also have a good nucleus of veterans returning, as well as sound goaltending. I have every reason to be positive about this group of boys.”
The team includes four veteran forwards in Pietro Antonelli, Swann Boisvert, Raphael Lacerte and captain Maxime Ruel. All four of these boys bring much experience and should be poised for their best seasons ever at the school. Youngsters Carl St-Jean, Lucas Zwaagstra and Elric Boisvert move up from our JV program and bring added depth to our group of forwards. Both Zwaagstra and St- Jean practiced with the team last year and also dressed in a handful of games.
New forward recruits include Dylan Gareau (Richmond, ON), Mark Jankowski (Hamilton, ON), Andrew Leslie (New Canaan, CT), Justin Charbonneau (Bromont, QC), Joey Champigny (East Angus, QC) and Dallas Blacksmith (Waswanipi, QC). In particular, Gareau will be expected to contribute significantly up front, for he joins us from the Kanata Stallions Junior A organization, where he played last season as a 16-year-old. All of these boys bring a myriad of skill, speed and intelligence that will allow us to dress four capable lines every game.
For the second consecutive season the defensive core includes five new defensemen. They are: Kevin Millejours (Welland, ON), Brian Taylor (Kanata, ON), Justin Lafleur (Gatineau, QC), Hayden Chisholm (Sammamish, WA) and Jonas Fredriksson (Ostersund, Sweden). Assistant captain Pierre-Alexandre Aucoin will lead this defensive core. Youngster Spencer Martin will push our top six and provide some added depth on the blue line.
Our goaltending includes two returning players. Both Felix Larrivée and Simon-Pierre Boulos return for their senior years. Larrivée stands out in particular, for he finished last season with some of the best numbers in the entire league. The team also welcomes big man Sebastian Charpentier from Stockholm, Sweden. He joins us after playing for AIK Stockholm. At 6’02” and 200 pounds, Sebastian is an imposing goalie physically and should push both returning players for the starting job.
In our second season in the MPHL, the team looks to build on last year’s success. Our division will be very tight but we are looking forward to the opportunity. We will continue to practice a puck possession game and hopefully be as exciting as ever to watch.
As of December 15, the team’s record stands at 17 wins, 7 losses and 1 tie. Our Midwest Prep Hockey League record stands at 3-5-1. The season highlight was winning the Tilton School Annual Northeast Showcase Tournament by defeating New Hampton School 2-0 in the semi-final and host Tilton 2-1 in the championship final. Stanstead finished 2010 with a strong showing at the Philips Exeter Invitational. The boys earned two wins (New Hampton School 5-4) and (Brewster Academy 9-4) and lost a close one to Wyoming Seminary 3-2. All in all it was a strong team-building weekend allowing the team to finish the first half of the season on a very positive note.
The team is excited to finally be playing at home again. It will be a great weekend for the entire squad but especially for returning seniors and local players. We look forward to the challenge.
