    RAYHA BOARD MEETING

    November 19th at 5:30 p.m in the Raider Room. 

    Former RAYHA player Joey Anderson Scores his 1st NHL Goal

    Joey Anderson scored the first goal of his NHL career in the first period and the Devils made it stand up until Kyle Palmieri gave them some breathing room in a 3-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center. Keith Kinkaid pitched his third shutout of the season and the seventh of his career to earn his seventh career win over the Flyers. 

    “It was a good way to get the game going for us and get us off to the right start,” Anderson said.

    Anderson was selected 73rd overall in the 2016 NHL Draft  Newark, NJ - The New Jersey Devils today signed forward Joey Anderson to a three-year, entry-level contract. The contract will begin with the 2017-18 season. He signed the contract in New Jersey today and will skate with members of the team tomorrow. Anderson was New Jersey's third selection, 73rd overall, in the 2016 NHL Draft. The announcement was made by Devils' Executive Vice President/General Manager Ray Shero.

    Anderson, 19, just finished his sophomore season with the University of Minnesota-Duluth (NCHC) where the Bulldogs won the NCAA Championship. This past season, he scored 11 goals and 16 assists for 27 points and added 20 penalty minutes. During his freshman season, the right-shooting forward finished tied for second on the team with 37 points (12 goals and 25 assists) while registering just eight penalty minutes in 39 games played. That year, he was named to the NCHC All-Rookie Team. That team lost to the University of Denver, and Will Butcher, in the NCAA Frozen Four Final.

    The 5-11, 190lb. native of Roseville, Minnesota has represented the United States at the past two World Junior Championships. In 2018, he captained the team to a bronze medal as he scored four goals and three assists in seven games. In 2017, he registered two assists in seven games and was part of the squad that won the gold medal. Prior to college, Joey played two seasons with the United States National Team Development Program after playing two seasons at Hill-Murray High School. Joey's brother, Michael, was his teammate at UMD this past season as a freshman defenseman, and was a fourth-round pick, 103rd overall of the Los Angeles Kings in the 2017 NHL Draft. They were also teammates on the 2018 World Junior team.

    A Bantams

    On Friday November 9th, the Roseville Bantam A team loaded up their gear and made their way to the Coon Rapids Arena for the 2018 Cardinal Clash Hockey Tournament.  The players appeared relaxed, confident, and perhaps a bit anxious as they listened to a wide range of music including Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash, and other fine artists (most not known to the 46-year-old Driver), on the 35-minute ride to the arena.

    The first game of the tournament slotted the Raiders against the Stormhawks from Chaska Chanhassen.  Both teams were a bit sloppy early, passes were just a bit off as the teams tried to get rid of their early game jitters.  The two teams traded goals in the first period and the score ended 2-2 after the 1st period.  The Raiders were relentless, showering the Stormhawks goalie with one shot after another.  The team showed their depth by pouring in five unanswered goals from five different players.  Overall, ten Roseville players ended up on the scoresheet and the stingy defensemen limited a good CC team to 10 shots.

    Meet the Concession Stand Managers

    Both of these hockey moms have deep backgrounds in food service and hospitality, which is one reason why they are excited about managing concessions, not to mention how great it feels to know that every penny they put in the register goes directly to support our hockey players, to make RAYHA the best program it can be. They are committed to food safety/sanitation AND to always have healthier options available for you and the kids. 

    Jen and Sarah have been working hard at cleaning and organizing the concessions stands and setting up procedures in order to make your shift there enjoyable and to make sure it runs smoothly! There is a lot of work that happens behind the scenes of a concessions stand and volunteers are vital to making it run successfully! Stop by concessions anytime you see them there to introduce yourself and ask questions you have about volunteering at the Goal Tender Cafe (arena concessions) or the Celly Cafe (oval concessions). They are also very open to suggestions and ideas, so feel free to share your opinion while you are volunteering (or send an email to rayhaconcessions@gmail.com).

    24 Tips for Raising Young Hockey Players

    Editor’s Note: The following was adapted from a list created by David By USA Hockey   Lynch, trainer for 8- and 9-year-old soccer players at Stockholm soccer club AIK.

    Here are 24 tips for parents raising young hockey players:

    1. The kids pack and prepare their own hockey bag.
    2. Always be on time for practice.
    3. Make them put their dirty training undergarments in the wash.
    4. Tell them to give 100 percent at practice and games.
    5. The kids carry their own hockey bag in and out of the ice rink. That’s carry, not wheel.
    6. Teach them how to tighten their own skates.
    7. Play hockey with them, where they want and when they want to.
    8. Make them wear their equipment until it’s been outgrown, then buy new equipment.
    9. Buy them new skates when they need them, not when they want them.
    10. Buy second-hand skates and save yourself a fortune.
    11. Teach them not to hate other teams.
    12. Win or lose, remind them to love the game, and the game will love them back.
    13. They will respect teammates, the opposition, the refs, the other team’s coaches. If you don’t teach them this, the coach will have to do it.
    14. Let them dream they can be a Patrick Kane, but don’t give them any expectations.
    15. Blaming teammates, blaming the ref, blaming anything is out. This goes for the players andparents. Set a good example.
    16. Let them play hockey at home with a tennis ball.
    17. Take them to hockey games and let them watch the pros.
    18. Tell them hockey is for fun. Practice is for fun. If it isn’t fun for them, talk to the coach/club or move to another club.
    19. Encourage them to watch hockey training videos on YouTube and let them try and perfect some of the moves.
    20. Encourage them, support them, but never ever shout out instructions from the bleachers.
    21. Don’t car-coach after practices or games. It sucks the fun out of the game. They know if they played well or poorly.
    22. Encourage them to play other sports.
    23. Don’t try to “train” your kid. Take them out, ask what they want to do and let them do it.
    24. Tell your kids that you love watching them play.

    1st Skate 2018 - A Huge Success!

    The 1st Skate program has five goals: as in introduction to RAYHA and the rink, for new skaters to learn to skate without assistance, for children to learn basic skating techniques, for families to become knowledgeable and comfortable with hockey gear and FUN!  

    It's fair to say that all five goals were met - especially the 5th goal! A very special thank you to the RAYHA staff for their time and dedication to this program, to the volunteers for their invaluable assistance, to all who donated gear and to everyone who participated in the 1st Skate program. 

    Who knows... a future NHL player may just have had his or her start right here on our Roseville ice!!
