Weekend Success for Both the Knights and Everblades

The Niagara Jr. Knights joined the Jr. Everblades this past weekend for a total of 12 games spread across 3 divisions, 10U, 12U and 14U, as well as three “mash-up” games. This event has been in the making over the last several years after meeting Jr. Knights GM Michael Agrette during one of his few yearly vacation trips down to the North Naples area. His two boys came on the ice to join us during training sessions and that is where the conversations started. 

It was a very successful weekend for both programs and the games were split right down the middle across the 3 divisions. I look forward to hosting the Jr. Knights for years to come.  We are anticipating our matchup next year and planning on how to improve a great weekend of hockey.  In addition, I’m excited to take a team or two up to Niagara in the near future!
