The Pursuit if Excellence 18U team will be returning 4 players from last years team as the rest have graduated to higher levels. With a strong recruiting class of young players the team will have a good mix of size and speed up front and on the backend. Returning goaltender Jordan Wilde and newcomer Joel Hofer will handle the netminding duties and should be a solid tandem. The 18U team will no doubt be one of the youngest in the league but we are looking forward to the excellent competition the NAPHL provides for our players in terms of development and a professional environment. Our 16U team is looking forward to returning the league as well. With a few returnees and solid recruiting class the team is looking forward to competing against the great competition the league provides. The Pursuit of Excellence is proud to be entering into another season in the NAPHL as it has provided our players with the needed high-end competition to help achieve their goals of moving on in hockey o the highest level possible.
