Western Junior Colonials Welcome new hockey director!

The Western Junior Colonials are pleased to announce and welcome Bill McCreary as Hockey and Coaching Director!

The Western Jr Colonials (www.jrcolonialshockey.net) out of Danbury CT and Danbury Ice Arena are happy to announce Bill McCreary as our incoming Hockey Director.  His vast hockey experience as a player, coach, scout and administrator are a great asset to the organization.  Please welcome him to our team when you see him at the rink! Please note we are not saying goodbye to Coach Bob Stearns, only refining roles as Bob remains an integral part of Western and our skating foundation. Bob will continue to work primarily with our youngest skaters as well as run our summer skating and skills clinics and will continue to impart his wisdom on different levels throughout the season.

Coach McCreary, hails from Southampton, Ontario, is a former professional ice hockey player and coach.  Bill coached midget and bantam teams this past season and is familiar with the Major/Minor format currently running at Western as most recently he was the boys Tier 1 Director at the NJ Colonials Youth Organization out of Florham Park, NJ. He traveled to Quinnipiac University in Hamden Connecticut this past February along with five NJ Colonial players where he was a coach on the 16U White team bench in the 2019 AYHL All-Star games.  In 1 year with the NJ Colonials Bill won AYHL Championships with PeeWee Major and Bantam Minor and 1 District Championship at PeeWee Major. Previously he was the American Scout for the Victoriaville Tigres in the Quebec Major Junior League (QMJHL).

At the youth level, Bill won National, State and International Championships.  He played for Shattuck-St. Mary’s Prep in Minnesota where he was line mates with current Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise.  He played junior hockey for the Texas Tornado (NAHL) and amassed 45 goals and 71 assists in 98 games. He was named to the All-Rookie team and First Team All-Star.

McCreary then played college hockey for the Providence College Friars and Curry College Colonels both in the NCAA. His professional play includes time with the Huntsville Havoc (SPHL), the New Mexico Scorpions (CHL) and Trenton Titans (ECHL).  McCreary won the SPHL Championship, as an assistant captain with the Huntsville Havoc and then served as a Player/Assistant coach. He retired in 2012 after a championship season with the New Jersey Outlaws (FHL) where Bill was a Player/Assistant Coach

McCreary has a family history of hockey players, coaches, and General Managers.  His Grandfather Bill McCreary Sr., Great Uncle Keith McCreary, Father Bill McCreary Jr. plus Ron and Bob Attwell played in the National Hockey League (NHL).  He is also related to Bill McCreary, a Hall of Fame inductee as an on-ice official in the NHL and his son Mike McCreary who referees minor league hockey.

His coaching career since spans many teams including: Huntsville Havoc (SPHL), Watertown Wolves (FHL), East Coast Selects-Q, Portland Junior Pirates (USPHL), North Jersey Avalanche, Seacoast Spartans and the ISS Kings. Bill will also have a key role with the new Professional Organization coming to Danbury!

Again, please extend a warm welcome to Bill when you see him.  He will officially join Western on April 1st and will be getting to know our coaches early this spring as we plan for our 19-20 winter campaign. He will be in the rink periodically this spring and on the ice weekly with teams come fall. It is our plan to introduce him to families shortly as he begins to work on the short- and long-term goals for each level of play and the Organizational goals as a whole. Again, please offer him a warm Western welcome if you run into him at DIA! Please remember Western is currently enrolling all Spring and Winter 2019-20 programs as tryouts/team placement begins April 1st! Visit us at www.jrcolonialhockey.net today.

The Lady Colonials Welcome Rachael Ade

Lady Colonials Welcome Rachael Ade as Assistant Coach!
 
 
In its inaugural season, the Lady Colonials jumped at the opportunity to add Rachael Ade as an assistant to head coach Josh Branchflower's coaching staff.  Rachael is entering her second season as a defenseman for the NWHL's CT Whale.  She was a recipient of the NWHL Foundation Award, which goes to the players that most actively apply the core values of hockey to their communities. Prior to playing professionally, Rachael played for the University of Vermont, when in her senior season she captained the team as part of the winningest class in UVM history. She ranks second in all-time in program history with 143 games played.  Rachael is originally from Davenport, Florida, and played youth hockey in Pittsburgh and Boston.
 
Our Lady Colonials are lucky to have such an accomplished player as a coach and mentor as Western looks to grow the game of girls hockey!
