Sneak Peek: Boys Ice Hockey Preview

After watching one scrimmage game at the beginning of the Amity football season, I predicted that they would have a great season. And, well, I was right.

Friday night I sat in on the Amity Boys Hockey team’s practice session in West Haven to see if I could make some sort of prediction about their future this season.

Nobody was in uniform, so I haven’t a clue who anyone is yet, but I am pleased to say that the 23 boys on the 2018-19 team show a load of potential and I am very optimistic about this season.

It looks like we’ve got some real talent in the pool of three goalies and as far as the rest of the team – they’re fast with some sharp moves I do believe we will have three or four stand-out players as we have in the past few years.

Head Coach Michael “Scooter” Richetelli brought the Spartans all the way to the state championship game in 2014, after a stellar season. That team, which included notable members, Goalie Brian Mosher, Kevin Ryan, Adam Shea, and Brett McNeil, played their hearts out against Daniel Hand, which ended in a loss after Hand broke a 4-4 tie.

Out on the ice, Richetelli commands the boys’ attention and has a strong, yet kind approach to getting them to execute the plays he lays out. The assistant coaching staff has a new face this year, as longtime coach Brian Gonsalves has moved on to Daniel Hand. His replacement, John (I think) is older and has a long ice hockey history. He played at Fairfield Prep, then more recently coached at Masuk.

I’m excited about this year’s boys’ team and I can’t wait to see them in action at next Wednesday’s HOME scrimmage game.

There’s a lot happening with this team in December.

Today, the boys are in Westfield, Mass for a scrimmage game, then, on Wednesday, the 5th, they are HOME in West Haven for a scrimmage against Masuk at 7 p.m. followed by the West Haven Jamboree at 6 p.m. on Friday.
