Girls Update
North River Minor Hockey Association logo

Just wanted to provide you with a quick update on the status of the girls A teams. We have been compiling the lists from registration, and have updated several times through AAA try-outs, new to hockey programs, and numbers/updates from other associations. We are close to knowing numbers of teams/division, but will need to wait for AA try-outs to be completed to have final numbers in each division, so this will likely be mid-end week next week.

As soon as we have the final numbers and know the number of teams/ice times, I will send out an email and post on the North River web-site. In the interim, ice times will start on Sat, Oct 20th. The following is the schedule for the first 2 ice times only - at the APM. We will post the regular weekly schedule once everything is finalized.

  • Sat, October 20, 12:40pm - 1:40pm: Novice / Atom Girls
  • Sat, October 20, 4:10pm - 5:10pm: PW / Bantam Girls
  • Mon, October 22, 7:30pm - 8:30pm: Midget Girls
  • Thu, October 25, 6:20pm - 7:20pm: Midget Girls
  • Fri, October 26, 4pm - 5pm: Novice / Atom Girls
  • Fri, October 26, 6:20pm - 7:20pm: PW / Bantam Girls

NHL Defenceman Adam Mcquaid Donates Hockey Gear To NRMHA
North River Minor Hockey Association logo

Twenty-five sets of hockey gear has been donated making the sport more accessible for all Cornwall, PE: Hockey players in North River will now have even more access to the sport they love as New York Rangers Defenceman and Cornwall native Adam McQuaid has donated twenty-five sets of brand new hockey gear to the organization. This "All Can Play Fund" removes financial strain from any children and their parents who may not otherwise been able to play without the gear.

To receive a set, all parents have to do is contact NRMHA and fill out a form as it is on a needs basis. Sets will also be given to new hockey players who do not want to fully invest in a set of gear until they are committed to playing. The gear does not include a pair of skates or a helmet, so those must be provided by the player beforehand. The gear is then to be returned at the end of the season.

Adam McQuaid played all of his minor hockey years with North River Minor Hockey Association, including two years with the Cornwall Thunder Major Midget AAA team, prior to moving to Sudbury, Ontario to play Major Junior with the Sudbury Wolves of the OHL. As for the reason for his donation, McQuaid wanted to create a way for children to enjoy hockey and remove any barriers. He wanted to give back to his community and to the association that he grew up playing in.

The NRMHA Board are thrilled with this donation and would like to express gratitude to Adam for his continuous support of the organization.

2018 - 19 Novice Hockey Structure
Hockey PEI logoNorth River Minor Hockey Association logo

Novice hockey will have a new seasonal structure in PEI this coming season.

The entirety of 2018-2019 Novice season will use a half-ice game model that will encourage and promote development for players of all skill level. The half-ice model was introduced last year but only for the first half of the 2017-2018 season. The change to a full season of half-ice games will improve and assist with the development of Novice players by getting them more involved with the game through increased puck touches, shots, passes and transitions.

At the Hockey Canada Spring Congress in May 2017, the Hockey Canada board passed a motion starting for the 2019-2020 season it will be mandatory that all games played at the Novice age level be cross or half-ice games. The same motion was also passed as a recommendation for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 seasons.

With this change Hockey PEI is aligned with many other branches in the country who have decided to introduce modified half-ice full time for the upcoming season, including Hockey Nova Scotia and Hockey Newfoundland and Labrador in the Atlantic region.

"Hockey PEI is committed to continuing to improve the delivery of minor hockey within our communities to ensure every player is getting the best possible experience they can," said Jeremy Pierce, Chair of Hockey PEI Development Council. "These changes are about developing players in a positive way and creating a fun and positive atmosphere for kids in this age category".

From the beginning of the minor hockey season to November 15, 2018, Novice teams will focus solely on skill development through their team practices.

Between November 15, 2018 and March 15, 2019, Novice teams will play half-ice games only. All Novice tournaments or jamborees will be played using the half-ice game model.

Hockey PEI has developed a Novice Hockey Guide for parents and Minor Hockey Associations to assist with this transition. The guide further outlines specific details, rationale and the benefits of the Novice hockey program for the upcoming season.
