The North Shore Shamrocks
and Bauer Hockey have entered into an equipment agreement for the coming season
that allows each player access to great equipment at a discounted price.
All new Shamrock
players must purchase a custom Bauer shamrock shell at the fitting,
however returning players may use their shells from prior years. Also
being a member of the program requires you to have a green helmet, which
we will offer at a discounted price at the fitting. The helmet
does not need to be purchased at Ristuccia, but through Bauer you will receive a
discount at the time of the fitting. Each player will receive a Bauer sweatshirt
and winter hat as part of the program tuition and must be sized for these items
during this fitting.
Please be advised that it
is very important to come during your scheduled time on April 7th. We will have
extra staff on duty to allow people to get in and out as soon as possible. Make
sure to bring your hockey pants to ensure the we can fit your shell properly to
the pants that you will be wearing during the season. Checks, credit cards, and
cash will be excepted at the fitting.

Looking to take regional youth hockey development to the next level, the Massachusetts Selects Youth Hockey League (MSYHL), in an unprecedented move, has added six programs from the International Junior Youth Hockey League (IJYHL) to form a 15-member league that will begin play during the 2012-13 season. The expanded (MSYHL) brings together established Tier 1 programs stretching from Rhode Island to Southern New Hampshire and out to Central Massachusetts.
The goal is to put the top programs and top youth players from the region in a single league which will emphasize skills and character development. The combination of so many teams with an abundance of heritage and talent have come together to form what can only be called the new leading AAA youth hockey league in New England.
“This area of the country is a hockey hotbed and our goal is to create a youth development system that is the envy of the rest of the nation,” said IJYHL Commisioner Mike Bonish. “We believe this will be a vital step in fostering the next golden generation of players to come out of southern New England.”
The addition of the IJ programs to the MSYHL is the culmination of discussions that started prior to the start of the current season
“Everyone involved started on the same page in terms of wanting to make a league that delivers the best possible experience for the players and families involved,” said MSYHL President Tim Murray. “The coaching, the facilities, the level of competition, everything will be top shelf. We’re going to be setting a new standard for what constitutes elite hockey. We are excited to embark on this next chapter in the growth of our league.”
The MSYHL will now be home to the following programs: 495 Stars, Boston Jr. Blackhawks, Boston Stars, Central MA Outlaws, Conquistadors, Dover Stars, Manchester Flames, New England Bulldogs, New England Predators, New England Stars, North Suburban Wings, North Shore Raiders, North Shore Shamrocks, Rhode Island Hitmen, and Rhode Island Stars

The Ristuccia Arena is not only the Boston Bruins Practice and Training Center, but as the recently installed sign over the arena entrance indicates, it is also the home of Shamrocks Hockey. Along with the 9 North Shore Shamrock teams of the IJYHL and EHF, the Boston Shamrocks of the JWHL also call Ristuccia Memorial Arena home.
In addition to being the cleanest facility in the region, and because it is the Official Practice Center for the NHL's Boston Bruins, the Ristuccia Arena has one of the best ice surfaces in the Northeast. The arena’s professional staff continually monitors and maintains the ice to keep it up to NHL standards.
