NT Green beat Providence Friday night in front of a record breaking crowd of 11,192 people with a score of 4-2.
It was a remarkable season for Green who won the Nike Bauer Invitational Tournament, the Chicago Showcase, the Loyola Thanksgiving Tournament, the Hoosier Cup, the SHL President's Cup and finally the State Championship.
"With a 67-9 overall record and no losses to any Illinois team, this will go down as one of the best seasons ever for an Illinois hockey team." - Brad Burton, team manager.
Last Sunday, March 19th, the New Trier Boys and Girls Hockey Clubs hosted an inaugural exhibition sled hockey game at the North Shore Ice Arena to raise awareness and funds for the Great Lakes Adaptive Sport Association (GLASA). New Trier Hockey’s seniors and the GLASA Falcons players entertained the fans with their spirited play and athleticism. After the game, many New Trier players talked about how much fun it was to play sled hockey, and how hard it was compared to their more familiar game. Those in attendance were impressed with GLASA’s mission and the wide-ranging programs it offers for disabled athletes. (Please visit www.glasa.org for more information about this incredible organization.) The family-oriented fundraiser, which included Blackhawk Alumni, Chuck-A-Puck contest, Silent Auction, Raffle & Bake Sale, raised more than $7,000 for GLASA and created lasting memories for all participants.
The success of this event would have been possible without the enthusiastic attendance of our fans and families, the help of our many volunteers, and the support of our generous sponsors: Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Blackhawk Alumni, Chicago Bulls, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Wilmette Bike Shop, @properties, Lou Malnati’s, Stormy’s Tavern and Grille, The Grand Foods, Spynergy Cycling Studio, Creative Promotional Products, Smith Design Co., Eggemeyer and Graham Orthodontics, Oak Technical Sales, Face Forward Medical Spa, and the Baillos, Graves, Marshall, Melgard, Mulhern, Pavlopoulos, Peter Raith, Snow, Solberg, Talbot, Tragos and Womsley families. Thank you!
Thank you also to the staff at GLASA, and the GLASA Falcons players, for making this event possible and showcasing the amazing sport of sled hockey!

In what has become a Homecoming weekend tradition, New Trier hockey players once again joined forces with the local communities in the fight against pediatric cancer. On Saturday, October 15th, players from the boys’ and girls’ teams spread out in Winnetka, Glencoe, Wilmette and Northfield to collect donations for the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation. Established in 1992 and named in memory of eight-year-old Barrett "Bear" Krupa, who died after a courageous five and a half year battle with Wilms Tumor, the Foundation’s mission is to eliminate pediatric cancer and to provide hope and support to those who are touched by it. Through its “Bear Discoveries” and “Bear Hugs” programs, the Foundation funds cutting-edge research and provides for the immediate needs of the children and families battling the disease.
New Trier Hockey’s efforts on October 15th, combined with an online challenge (won by the Blue Team!), raised a remarkable total of $16,500, which easily surpassed last year’s record total. One hundred percent of the money collected went directly to Bear Necessities and will be used to brighten the lives of Chicago area pediatric cancer patients and to provide essential support for their families.
As in prior years, the success of this year’s fundraising event would not have been possible without the generous support of residents in the New Trier communities, players’ families and friends, and the following local businesses where players collected donations on October 15th: Dunkin Donuts in Glencoe, the Wilmette French Market, the Grand Food Centers in Winnetka and Glencoe, No Man’s Land Pizza & Grill in Wilmette, Once Upon a Bagel, Panera Bread in Wilmette, Ridgeview Grill, Starbucks in Winnetka, Glencoe and Wilmette, Three Tarts Bakery and Café, and Walker Bros. Original Pancake House in Wilmette. Please remember to support those who support the Club and its philanthropic activities!
