Boys Varsity Ice HOCKEY

Ice hockey has a long and proud tradition at Kents Hill School. The game has been played here since the early 1900’s and over the past 100 years the program has seen its share of great players, coaches, teams and advances in facilities. Legendary players such as Amo Bessone (US Hockey Hall of Fame as well as Michigan State Hall of Fame), George Balestri, Robert Irving, Hans “Whitey” Ohlin, NCAA All-American goalie Casey Tuttle, All-ECAC defenseman Brad Richard, and All New England goalie Brian Fleming are just a few of the great players who have come through the program. In 2001 the hockey program began play in the Alfond Athletic Center, a 7 million dollar athletic facility on campus that features pro style locker rooms and hockey rink. The 2008 boys’ hockey team was the first ice hockey program in school history to capture a New England championship when they won the Division II title that year.  In 2009 the boys’ hockey program took another step in its advancement by becoming a Division I prep program and in the 2011-2012 season qualified for the New Prep School Ice Hockey Association playoffs.

The vision of the Kents Hill hockey program is threefold; to develop individuals who are motivated to improve as people, students, and players, while representing themselves and Kents Hill School with the highest degree of sportsmanship, effort and respect, to advance our players to the next level of hockey, and to compete for the NEPSIHA playoffs and ultimately, win a championship.

Head Coach Doug Friedman begins his tenure with the 2014-15 season. A former stand-out at Boston University and NHL player, he also serves as the School's Athletics Director. To contact Coach Friedman, call 207-685-1667 or dfriedman@kentshill.org.

A NEPSAC Victory!

     The Boys Varsity hockey team beat Holderness 3-2 Friday night for Husky’s Coach Doug Friedman’s first NEPSIHA win.  The Bulls opened the scoring and held a 1-0 lead going into the first intermission.  

Less than one minute into the second period Mark Snyder scored the first of his two goals when two great passes from Will Lafford and Ian Semon left Snyder alone on the left post where he easily beat Holderness goalie Logan Batchman. Later in the second Dom Breton-Veillette gave the Huskies the lead when he scored with assists going to Conor Cassidy and Matt Gulack.  Several minutes later Evan McCutcheon came within a millimeter of stuffing in a rebound, but Batchman made a great save.  The second ended with the Huskies leading 2-1.  

With about 5 minutes to go in the third period Holderness scored when Henry Sheffield got behind the Husky defense and scored on a stretch pass from Elliot McGuire.  However, Kents Hill kept the pressure on.  At the four minute mark Kevin Rodgers walked in from the right point and beat Batchman cleanly on the top glove side, but the puck clanked off the post and bounced harmlessly into the corner. Again though, the Huskies pressed and Snyder scored the game winner, unassisted, with just under 3 minutes to go. Sebastian Hogye had 11 saves for Kents Hill.
