Filler All Star Midget Teams Announced

The 17th annual Filler All-Star game featuring a format similar to last year with current Midget A players combining with both present and former SYHA coaches for a spirited contest. The Filler All-Star game was initiated by Andy Filler (former SYHA President) as a fundraiser game to help stock the shelves of the Simsbury Food Pantry.  Last year, we collected over 27 turkeys, $175 cash and over 1000 non-perishable items to help our fellow Simsbury citizens during the Holiday period.   

This year, the team that donates the most items will receive a $100 gift Certificate to Little City Pizza.  Please bring your contribution to the rink (clearly marked box(s) on Sunday or make arrangements with Paul Simeon, 33 West Mountain Road to drop off by Saturday.  Paul’s cell is 860-888-2930 or Holly Simeon 860-559-6274. 

Sunday Evening Team Captains Michael Gauthier and Tim Kratzer met with the Filler All Star Committee to draft the 2017 teams. Tim and Michael are very optimistic about their teams each claiming success and having the better team to prevail in the contest.  The Teams are:
