Holyoke, MA – The Bay State Bobcats Junior A Hockey Club’s off-season has been busy, even with everything going on in the world with COVID-19. The Club has secured over half its squad (already) for the upcoming 2020-2021 season. Players from all over the world have signed to play with the Club and management couldn’t be more excited to see the team hit the ice, come September.
“We have a lot of new faces coming into Training Camp,” Director of Scouting and Assistant Coach Trevor Simonson was quoted saying. “Last year, we lacked goal scoring. That’s what we have heavily gone after for the 2020-2021 season. The majority of our games were close 1 or 2 goal games. We are hoping the new faces we are bringing in can contribute right away to the offensive front. It’s going to be a very competitive East division next season, and we are excited to see how far we can go to compete for a National Championship. One thing is for certain, though, although we will have a new team name, be in a new location, and have new colors, we will continue our Tradition of Winning to Holyoke, Massachusetts for the 2020-2021 season.”
“I couldn’t be more excited to see the great group of guys we are assembling for the upcoming season,” Head Coach and General Manager Anthony Langevin said. “It’s going to be a team who’s going to have to compete day in and day out to see end results in a very competitive East Division next year, but I know we will have the right guys to do exactly that.”
Starting June 1st, the Club will be running “Bay State Bobcats Monthly.” The monthly articles will be posted the 1st of each month (June 1st, July 1st, August 1st, and September 1st) up until the start of the season (around September 2). Then, they will be running Weekly articles to recap the prior weekend of games and look forward to the upcoming weekend of games.
The Club will also start announcing players who have signed for the upcoming season, on Monday, June 15th. They will be announcing 2 players a week, up to the start of Training Camp in the beginning of September.
