East Side High School Hockey Has Amazing Opportunity

During the week of 12/4-12/7, the East Side Varsity, JV, and Girls teams all were given the opportunity to practice on the main arena of the Prudential Center, home of the New Jersey Devils!

The week was capped off with an unexpected JV game game against Colonia/JFK/Woodbridge.

The chance to play in the arena that many of the NHL’s top players skate in is an opportunity the members of the East Side Hockey program will never forget!

“We imagined being watched by thousands and felt like we were a Devil for a day!”
– Captain Gabe Dos Santos, East Side Senior

“Playing a game on the main rink was such a surreal moment. We as a team were able to envision the normal day of a professional hockey player. I was glad to share this moment alongside my teammates and it was a memory we will cherish forever.”
– Matt Atehortua, East Side Junior
