Ice hockey has a long and proud tradition at Kents Hill School. The game has been played here since the early 1900’s and over the past 100 years the program has seen its share of great players, coaches, and teams, come through its outstanding facilities. Standout players include: · Amo Bessone - US Hockey Hall of Fame; Michigan State Hall of Fame · George Balestri – University of Michigan · Robert Irving · Hans “Whitey” Ohlin · Logan Day – Division III NCAA All-American, Joe Concannon finalist with Endicott College, Division I National Championship Providence College, Bakersfield Condors (AHL) · Brad Richard – Division III All-ECAC Brad Richard, Kelley Cup Champion (ECHL, Alaska Aces), Iowa Wild (AHL) · Casey Tuttle – Division III NCAA All-American goalie, Elmira College · Brain Fleming – NEPSIHA All New England Selection (Goalie) · Jared Cockrell – Brooks Bandits (AJHL) Rookie of the Year, Colgate University (ECAC Division I) · Mark Dufour – Union College (ECAC Division I) · Dan Tuttle – Clarkson University (ECAC Division I) In 2001 the hockey program began playing in the Alfond Athletic Center, a 7-million-dollar athletic facility on campus that features a 85’ x 200’ ice rink, pro-style locker rooms, fitness center and gymnasium. The 2008 boys’ hockey team was the first athletic program in school history to capture a New England championship when they won the Division II title that year. In 2009, the boys’ hockey program took another step in its advancement by becoming a Division I prep program. In the 2011-2012 season, the team qualified for the New England Prep School Ice Hockey Association playoffs and in 2013 were runners up for the Larry Piatelli Trophy in the Small School New England Championships. The vision of the Kents Hill hockey program is threefold: to develop individuals who are motivated to improve as people, students, and players, while representing themselves and Kents Hill School with the highest degree of sportsmanship, effort and respect; to advance our players to the next level of hockey, and to compete for the NEPSIHA playoffs and ultimately, win a championship.
