Newburyport hockey in good hands

(Continued)

“When he got in the shootout of the Bank Classic and scored that goal, that was probably the thing I’ll never forget,” he said.

Wile said that the way the team responded after falling into a 1-4 hole early in the season was nothing short of remarkable, and that the team deserves a lot of credit for silencing their doubters during their inaugural Division I season. The same goes for the way the team played against Winchester, a team he said a lot of people felt Newburyport had no business competing against.

Now that his family’s time with the program is over, Wile said it’s bittersweet knowing he won’t get to see his sons don the Newburyport colors anymore, but he’s thankful for everything the program has done for them and glad that more kids will continue to benefit from Newburyport hockey in the years to come.

“I’m really going to miss this hockey program,” he said. “And especially those fantastic coaches.”
