2006-2007 Nashoba Youth Hockey Squirt 1 Team Featuring MVP Jack Eichel & Special Guest Reggie Lemelin
The Valley Hockey League has not only created opportunities for thousands of youth to play hockey, but it has also been a breeding ground for the best hockey players in the world.

This past week, the 2015 NHL Draft Central Scouting Service midterm rankings were released and the top name on that list was Jack Eichel. The North Chelmsford product is rated as a top prospect, who is expected to be the top pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

He is currently a star player for Boston University and is coming off a stellar performance at last month’s World Junior Championship where he served as team captain.

Noah Hanifin is another local star projected to be drafted third overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Hanifin grew up in Norwood and went on to thrive both in youth circles, in high school and as part of a two-time Massachusetts State Champion Valley Junior Warriors team.
