EHL All-Star Weekend

By Neil Ravin - Director of Communications 07/12/2018, 9:00am EDT

Top Talent Set to Take on Plymouth State and UMass Boston

BOSTON, MA -- The Eastern Hockey League (EHL) is pleased to announce that this year's All-Star festivities have doubled in size. Last season, Team EHL took on the Umass Boston Beacons in the first ever meeting between the league and an NCAA program. Led by a combined 56 saves from Nolan Egbert (Boston Jr. Rangers) and Michael Paglucca (New Hampshire Avalanche), the group of EHL All-Stars represented the league tremendously well in a 3-2 exhibition loss. This year, the EHL will be facing-off with UMass Boston once again, but that will be the day following a matchup with the Plymouth State University.

  • Exhibition Game #1 - Team EHL vs. Plymouth State - October 19th (6:00PM)
  • Exhibition Game #2 - Team EHL vs. UMass Boston - October 20th (4:00PM)

"This is going to be a great weekend for our league," said Mark Kumpel, the EHL's Director of Hockey Operations. "Coach Russell [Plymouth State] spoke to us very shortly after we played UMass Boston last season, and he made it very clear that he wanted to set up a similar exhibition. By increasing the number of games, we are going to invite more players to participate. We will have at least 1 player from all 19 teams, and the experience from the weekend is going to be second-to-none for our league."
