ALICE NOBLE ICE ARENA 20th ANNIVERSARY

Sunday, September 25, 2022, Alice Noble Ice Arena will mark its 20th anniversary. There will be a celebration to thank patrons for their support and to recognize this gift to the community. There will be a Public Skate from 2:00-4:00 PM.  Admission and skate rental are FREE of charge. Refreshments will also be provided courtesy of the Noble Foundation. 

Please don’t just mark your calendars. Set this time aside to celebrate ANIA. Nearly 3 years ago, we faced the almost certain loss of the ice rink and the displacement of players, teams, families. However, our community rallied together to showcase the value of the facility and the character of our ice culture. Consider your attendance an opportunity to demonstrate your continued gratitude to the Noble Foundation and your continued love for the facility itself. 

Nothing would make a greater impression on the Noble Foundation than to see the ANIA packed with patrons more than it has ever been. Please set aside the date and time. WYHA, as a whole, should plan on attending and celebrating.

16U Team Celebrates

16U Team Celebrates

Congratulations to the Wooster High School Oilers 16U team, which combined players from among both the American and National Division teams to form an eligible roster for The Show Tournament's Wooster Blowout event hosted by Alice Noble Ice Arena over President's Day Weekend. 

The 16U's went 4-1 over 3 days, including an overtime win in the championship game after trailing 3-1 halfway through the 3rd period. 

Highlights: 
Three players paced the attack for the Oilers and compiled ridiculous stat lines along the way: 
Sam Robinson (10 Goals, 8 assists) 
LuiG Cañas (8 Goals, 8 Assists) 
Avi Arora (3 Goals, 10 assists) 
21 Goals, 26 assists in 5 games. 
Fittingly, the trio combined on the title winning goal by Robinson.

Team defense also played outstanding at both ends of the ice--led by Carson Merryweather, Connor Reich, and Jake Allen. All three defenseman scored in the tournament, including Allen, who opened the scoring in the final game with a shorthanded goal to provide early momentum. 

Finally, excellent goaltending by Kyle Lesiw and Josie Zimmerman provided the backbone of the team. Lesiw demonstrated poise and consistency in his 3 starts--all wins. Zimmerman had a shutout in pool play and provided calm in the championship game during a rocky second period. Congrats to all the players, coaches, and parents.

Squirt Team's Banner Season
Congratulations are also in order for our squirt team, who won the CSHL Squirt A3 Division Banner with an impressive 11-1 record. 

Highlights:
Micah Robinson leads the team with 47 goals. 
Keagan Smith paces all skaters with 24 assists. 
Seva Raev proved to be the division's toughest goalie throughout the season. 

Thanks to these players and coaches, WYHA will be able to hang another banner in the rink and inspire the next group of young hockey players. 

Coach Bryan Smith credits his team with being one of the strongest backchecking teams he's ever seen and worked hard to gel together a group of players with varying levels of playing experience.

For the entire season, team defense was outstanding, impressive, and consistent as the team only yielded 17 goals in 12 games.

The 10U group has one more tournament remaining to conclude their season.

Thank You
To all Wooster Oilers Junior Hockey players who helped out at WYHA practices throughout the season, from the 8U level to the high school level. These young men provided leadership, great examples, and individual instruction. 

WYHA players have inherited great passion for the game from these young men, who always seemed willing to help. 

You will all be missed!

Wadsworth Veterinary Hospital Donation

Thanks to a generous donation from the Wadsworth Veterinary Hospital, WYHA will offer one free skate-sharpening at Alice Noble Ice Arena for WYHA 8U rostered players. Vouchers for each player will be distributed to team managers for the Mite 1 and Mite 2 teams next week. The idea for this program came directly from Wadsworth Veterinary Hospital. Their continued support has had a great impact throughout the 21-22 season, starting with the October Team Boxes, and we cannot thank them enough for all they have given and done.

President's Membership Update

100 days ago, WYHA elected a new president and two new trustees. Firstly, I’d like to thank you for your support and patience as we, as an entire WYHA board, have sought to improve upon the already strong foundation of our club...
