Ice Hockey - Boys Prep Team

Overview

Sem earned its second Mid-Atlantic Hockey League Championship (MAHL) in the last five years in 2018. The Blue Knights finished with a 4-3-1 league record and 10-16-3 overall. Defenseman Michael Anthony Deslauriers ‘18 of Montreal, QC and goalie Armand Charland ’19 of Phoenix, AZ were named league all-stars.

Dustin Good ‘04, who previously served as the team's associate head coach, takes over as head coach for the 2018-2019 season.

Wyoming Seminary's hockey program is dedicated to developing student-athletes to their full potential, on the ice and in the classroom. Designed around the academic calendar, Sem’s hockey schedule exposes our student-athletes to the best competition while maintaining the academic integrity of the school.

Sem's hockey program played its first competitive season in 1992-93. The prep team now plays an approximately 35 game schedule with 4-5 tournaments/showcases per season against prep schools from across the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and New England. Some of the tournaments the program has participated in include: Middlesex/St. Mark's William Barber Memorial Tournament, Northwood Holiday Tournament in Lake Placid, Albany Academy Rider Cup, Trinity-Pawling Empire Cup, Phillips Exeter Invitational, Shady Side Academy Thanksgiving Classic and the St. Francis Tournament in Buffalo.

Seminary student-athletes have gone on to play in the NHL, AHL, ECHL, OHL, QMJHL, USHL, NAHL, USPHL NCDC, BCHL, OJHL, CCHL, and various professional leagues across Europe and Asia as well as Division I, Division III, CIS and ACHA programs including, but not limited to, Boston University, Bentley, Harvard, Alaska (Anchorage), American International, Norwich, Hamilton, Skidmore, New England College, St. Michaels, Hobart, Lebanon Valley, Elmira, Southern New Hampshire University, SUNY Fredonia, SUNY Cortland, SUNY Geneseo, Worcester State, Neumann, Penn State, Arizona, Drexel, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, Castleton State, Curry College, University of New Hampshire, Quinnipiac University, Sacred Heart University, University of Vermont and Middlebury College.
