Boys Player Development



Welcome to the Massachusetts Hockey Boys Player Development Page!

Massachusetts Hockey is excited to use this platform to provide resources for all players, their parents and coaches.

Over the past few years, the CCM High Performance program has provided opportunities for players like Charlie Coyle, Jack Eichel, Noah Hannifan, Frank Vatrano and Jimmy Vesey.

Our program is designed to:

  • Improve the quality of the hockey experience for high-end players in Massachusetts by utilizing the vast resources of the state and USA Hockey
  • Increase the resources available to goalies, their parents and coaches
  • Identify and develop the best male and female players in Massachusetts
  • Provide an opportunity to develop and play with and against the best players in Massachusetts and the United States
  • Create educational opportunities for players to have instruction with highly respected and skilled instructors

Our Massachusetts Hockey’s CCM Hockey High Performance boys program will be led by Paul Pearl, Harvard Men’s Ice Hockey Associate Head Coach.

Brian Robinson, USA Hockey and Massachusetts Hockey Goalie Development Coordinator and Amy Zappan, BU Goaltending Coach, will oversee the goalie portion of the program.

Please review the flow chart below to follow the process, dates and locations for the program.
