Esmark Training Camp Success!!

 

Many thanks to ALL who made the Esmark Training camp a success.  

The coaches put in many hours and the players worked hard!!

TeamEffort that's what it's all about!!

 

Esmark Hockey

We are Family!!


Honoring Toni Dezort

On June 30, 2020, we tragically lost a member of our Esmark Stars AAA Hockey family.  Antoinette "Toni" Dezort, mother of Dominic Dezort, who is a member of our U18 Esmark Stars AAA Hockey team, passed following a long and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.  

The Dezorts have been part of the Stars family for three seasons ... 2018-19 at U16; 2019-2020 at U18 and this current season, 2020-2021 also at U18.

All who knew Toni will tell you she was a lady who exuded class and would always put anyone else ahead of herself ... even while fighting the disease that eventually claimed her.

Please keep Frank, Dominic and their family in your thoughts and prayers!!!

To honor her memory, all Esmark teams (U12, U15, U16 and U18) will be wearing a helmet sticker, that was designed by her husband Frank and her son Dominic, for the upcoming 2020-2021 season. 


Recent U16 AAA Esmark Stars News

Vogt, Yakovich and Amaranto Recognized

The North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) has announced its Apex Learning Virtual School Peak Performers for the month of January.

The players were selected based upon their performance during all NAPHL games played in January, including the NAPHL Central Division pod event in Indianapolis, IN, as well as head-to-head games at team sites.

Esmark U16's Sebastian Vogt was selected 16U Apex Peak Performer (Defenseman) for January.   Vogt, 16, (5’8/140 lbs.) helped Esmark to a 2-2-0-0 record at the event in Indianapolis with four points in four games played, including three assists in an 8-3 win over the Jr. Fuel.  In 20 NAPHL games played this season, the native of Bradenton, FL, has 10 points.

Esmark U15's Aiden Yakovich was selected 15U Apex Peak Performer (Defenseman) for January.  Yakovich, 15, (5’7/145 lbs.) had his best weekend of the season in Indianapolis, putting up three points in four games played. The native of Moon, PA, had a point in three of the four games played.

Esmark U15's Ian Amaranto was selected 15U Apex Peak Performer (Goaltender) for January.  Amaranto, 16, picked up a pair of wins in goal at the event in Indianapolis. The 5’11/155 lbs. native of Johnstown, PA, stopped 15 of 16 shots in a 3-1 win over Meijer and had a 13-save shutout in a 1-0 win over the Tri State Spartans.

Congratulations Sebastian, Aiden and Ian!
