The Northeast Generals organization is excited to announce that we have partnered with the Rhode Island Hitmen as our affiliate Beast Series organization. The Hitmen offer Midget Split Season teams for some of the most elite players in New England and play in the prestigious Beast Series.
“This affiliation agreement brings the Generals and the New England Sports Village full circle. We now partner with every top program in the rink from Lovell Hockey, 95 Giants, APT, Rapid Hockey Academy and more. The rink has become a family atmosphere and the more we can do by working together will only benefit all of us. Our relationship with the rink keeps improving and the work that has been done by the programs, most notably the 95 Giants and the Hitmen, has been tremendous.” Said Northeast Generals General Manager and Head Coach Bryan Erikson.
In addition to the affiliation between the Hitmen midget teams and the Northeast Generals, Hitmen Executive Director Chris Jones has been brought on as a Regional Scout for Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.
“Rhode Island is so close to our rink and is a market we haven’t done a great job with. We look forward to Chris helping broaden our footprint into Rhode Island and helping us attract top local talent to both our NAHL and NA3HL teams.” Continued Erikson.
In addition to teams in the NA3HL and NAHL, the Northeast Generals currently field U16 and U18 Full Season Midget teams playing in the NAPHL and ECEL.
