We are excited to announce that the Everett Community Ice Rink at Angel Of The Winds Arena is in the process of readying the building for a planned re-opening date in mid-July. The re-opening date is in coordination with Governor Inslee’s Washington Safe Start program and Snohomish County’s plan to apply for Phase 3 during early July. The re-opening means that EYH will be returning to the ice too. EYH plans to open registration for the 2020-2021 season on Wednesday July 1, 2020. The health and safety of all players, coaches, families and arena staff are of the utmost importance to EYH and the Angel Of The Winds Arena. EYH is making plans to start the 2020-2021 season as early as possible to maximize the ice time opportunities for all registered players under the current COVID-19 regulations and requirements. EYH will start the 2020-2021 season as soon as the rink re-opens. EYH will invite registered players to participate in scheduled ice times during July through mid-August to allow everyone the opportunity to learn and understand the new procedures and behaviors while inside the arena both on and off the ice. EYH encourages players/families to register as soon as possible for the 2020-2021 season as there will be a limited number of players per ice time able to participate during these early pre-season sessions. Players and Coaches must be registered with USA Hockey for the 2020-2021 season (link) to successfully register for the EYH 2020-2021 season. EYH and the Angel Of The Winds Arena have “Return to the Rink” plans in place. The plans will be shared through the EYH website after the 2020-2021 registration is open. In addition, EYH will host virtual meetings to review these plans and address questions and concerns. There will be a meeting for coaches and a meeting for parents/families prior to the return to the ice.
EYH 16U-B Jr. Silvertips
The EYH 16U-B Jr. Silvertips won the 2019 Winthrop 16U-B Outdoor Tournament. The team was undefeated posting a 4-0 record. The EYH 16U-B Jr. Silvertips defeated the TJHA 16U-B Jr. Rockets 7-3 to capture the championship.
The 10U Jr Silvertips attended the Fall Frenzy in Wenatchee over the weekend. The team had the opportunity to face teams from Tacoma, Spokane, Wenatchee and Sno-King. The team went 2-2 in pool play with wins coming against Wenatchee and Spokane! A late goal by Aidan Rajcic in the third against Spokane with 1:38 left propelled the Jr. Tips to a 3-2 victory, which was critical in the Jr. Tips advancing to the championship game. The team faced the Jr. Thunderbirds from Sno-King in the championship game. The Jr. Tips battled throughout the entire game, but came up short against a very strong team from Sno-King. The team did an amazing job over the weekend and finished in second place! Way to go Tips!
Skating is critical at every level, from 8U all the way to the NHL. But how do we separate the merely adequate from the excellent? And how do we put skaters as young as 10U on a path for excellence?

Congratulations to EYH 18U Moses Lake 2019 Winter Classic Tournament Champions!
The EYH 18U-C Bruins were undefeated (4-0) during their run to capturing the 2019 Moses Lake Winter Classic tournament. On their way to victory the Bruins defeated a very strong Castlegar team and the SJHA's 17U Development team in the finals.
The EYH Bruins outscored their opponents by a combined total of 21-1 over the four games. Goalie Jack Tombs posted 3 shutouts in the final 3 games. His stonewalling efforts started in game one by shutting out their opposition for the last 2 periods on his way to recording 11 straight shut-out periods. It was truly a team effort resulting in outstanding hockey. The EYH 18U-C Bruins are currently battling the other MHL 18U-C teams for a top playoff position. Their next home game is Saturday 2/9/2019 @ 3:30pm on the Community Rink.
