EJEPL All-Stars are victorious in MN

Minneapolis, MN...April 19-22.   The 23rd annual Minnesota Meltdown is Minnesota's best AAA hockey tournament of the year with over 18 age levels and the strongest field of teams to date. 

The Lady Islanders selected 5 players to represent the EJEPL women's league at the U14 level. Gia Santorello, Tara Henshaw, Rachel Lohan, Zoe Galanoudis and Danielle Stein played alongside top players selected from the Quakers, So CT Stars, Greenwich Wings, Hanover Wild, NOVA and Maine Gladiators. Together they competed as one All-star team, coached by Mike Hansen and Pete Galanoudis, that went undefeated with 5 wins including 4 shutouts and won the 2018 Minnesota Meltdown. 

Coach Pete said, "What an amazing experience for players, parents, and coaches this past weekend.  I am sure I speak for everyone in saying that the 3-2 Shootout win in the Semi-Finals will be a hockey game etched in many of our minds for a very long time.  What a game that was to bring us to the finals and go on to win the Championship! This was truly a special team of gifted players that defined unselfish play and pure teamwork."

Christian Hubert, EJEPL Director of Women's Hockey noted, "The EJ League would like to congratulate all of you on an amazing victory this past weekend in Minnesota.  Bringing girls from different teams together with all different styles of play to form a new team to attempt to win a championship, very hard. I have to say we are so very proud of how this team came together with only one practice and accomplished a very difficult task of winning the Minnesota Meltdown." 

The EJEPL now has two women's U14 All-Star team championships in the record books! 


Coach Pete, Tara Henshaw, Danielle Stein, Zoe Galanoudis, Gia Santorello & Rachel Lohan.
