To All

What a perfect day for New York State  High School Hockey.

 The NYSHSHCA inducted the following players and teams at the Hall of Fame in the 1980 Arena in Lake Placid. Thanks for Butch Martin for getting the Hall in Order and looking very impressive for the following inductees.

 The 1998-99 D 1 Saratoga Springs Blue Streaks and the D 2 Aquinas "Little Irish".

 Between 75 and 100 people started gathering at the Hall looking at the amazing amount of teams, players and coaches that have been honored over the past 20 years.

Yes it was 20 years ago that the NYSHSHCA was founded in Lake Placid with its mission to honor the players, coaches and supporters of NYS HS Hockey.

 The event began with Bill Plante outlining the days activities. He then presented a plaque to John Nuccitelli, the coach of the Aquinas team that won the states in 98-99.

John drove 5 and1/2 hours for the ceremony, had lunch and drove back to Rochester for his grand daughter's graduation.

 Bill then introduced Jeff Sova and Bob Santamoor

the coaches of Saratoga Springs. Mark Morris, Chadd Cassidy and Chris Aldous[Chris joined us later], the players that were inducted were then introduced.

 Each gave brief comments as they looked at their plaques which were on the wall.

 Cameras were blazing away and it amazing to see all those who attended looking at all the plaques and pointing out who played with whom and who they knew from other teams. A very moving hour or so.

 Tim Cook, the Salmon River Coach and Mike Trimboli, the Massena coach joined the festivities as well as the former Lake Placid HS coach Rick Cassidy.

 Many were then off to eat lunch and play golf or both.

 At 730 PM dinner was held at The Crown Plaza. Families joined the inductees to witness the new members of Hall of Fame receive their plaques.

 Each followed with a short speech that recalled their playing or coaching days with a lot of back and forth between rivals and now friends.


 All the amazing profiles of these great men will be up on the web site shortly.

 All who attended felt that this was a fitting tribute to these men and we all hope that many more will attend next year..

 Yours in Hockey
