2019 Senior All-Star Doubleheader Results

Exeter, NH – On Sunday March 17th, at the Rinks of Exeter, the New Hampshire Legends of Hockey (“Legends”) hosted both of the boy’s Senior All-Star Classic Hockey games.  The 12:00 pm game was for Division III players only while the 12:15 pm game featured the very best players from Division I and II and two terrific games were played in front of several hundred family and friends.

This Legends event was sponsored by New Hampshire Distributors (NHD) of Concord.  NHD also provided post-game product samples for each player from Bang (potent brain and body fuel) and Sparkling Ice.  Click to open Division III program and Division I/II program.

Participating seniors were selected by the New Hampshire High School Hockey Coaches Association.  At the conclusion of each game, a reception hosted by the Legends took place in the lobby of the Rinks of Exeter for players and their families.  All senior players were announced individually by teams and received a certificate for their selection to the Senior All-Star Classic from John Normand President of the Legends.

In addition, Normand announced the All-State selections as the players came forward.  For the ninth straight year, the Legends provided certificates for each member of the various All-State teams.  In addition, for each division, the Legends awarded certificates to the Player-of-the-Year and Coach-of-the-Year.  Those individuals were selected by the NH High School Hockey Coaches Association and those All-State certificates were mailed out Monday afternoon to the Athletic Directors.
