On January 26, 2020 the New Hampshire Amateur Hockey Association held its tryouts for the Future Development Camp at the Tilton School in Tilton, NH. Thomas Edgerly and Kasey Siering were selected for the 12U New England District Futures Development Camp. Both Edgerly and Siering are defenseman for the 2008 Pee Wee Minor team under the supervision of Coach Ray Terrell. Terrell stated, “I am very proud of both Kasey and Thomas. It’s good to see they are being rewarded for their hard work and dedication to a sport they are passionate about.”
The New Hampshire team will participate in on and off ice training sessions, skill development, and full games at a 3-day event on March 27th – 29th in Burlington, VT. The training sessions will be led by USA Hockey national office personnel. This camp will be the player’s first introduction to the USA Hockey National Development process, which begins at 14U. They will participate with teams from Maine, Vermont, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
Goaltender Ethan Cosker and forward West Vaillant (GSW alternate) were selected for the 13U New England District Futures Development Camp. Both Cosker and Vaillant are on the 2007 Pee Wee Major team under the supervision of Coach Adam Kozlowski. Kozlowski stated, “Ethan is a great representative from our organization. He has committed himself to being a great teammate and to his own development.” Kozlowski also commented about Vaillant. He stated “West was selected as one of the top nine forwards in the state. West is a hard working player and a great teammate.”

On November 24th, 2019 the Maine Amateur Hockey Association held its tryouts for the 14U, 15U, 16U and 17U New England Development Camp. The New England District is made up of 5 states – CT, ME, NH, RI and VT. Forward Jack Kenney was selected to the boys 16U team and Defenseman Benjamin Thyng was selected to the boys 14U team. Both are current players for the Granite State Wild.
Kenney and Thyng will be able to attend the New England Festival tournament camp, which allows the athletes an opportunity to compete at their highest level. It is not a true tournament but, rather, a grueling few days of training and competition meant to showcase players. Winning is not the focus. The top priority is for the players to experience a camp of development, on and off ice knowledge and tough competition with a range of coaches from New England’s prep schools and colleges. Those who are selected to move on will then participate in the summer USA Hockey National Player Development Camps for boys and girls aged 15-17.
Congratulations to all! GO WILD!!!
