The 8th annual King of The Wheels is coming up and emails were sent out to team captains.  The deadline for registration and payment is November 21st.  It will be held at Skate Safe in Old Bethpage from December 5th to December 16th.  Each team will play one day the 1st week (round robin) and one day the 2nd week (playoffs).  All teams will play 3 games the first day and at least 2 games the second day.

Forms can be found here: Flyer and Registration Form
The round robin will be played from December 5th to December 9th.  Please list in order what days are best for your house on the registration form.  Please indicate any days that don't work for your house that week on your registration form as well.  We are planning on using Wednesday December 7th, Thursday December 8th and Friday December 9th for the round robin.  If the rink schedule changes or we have an increase in teams from last year then we will use different or additional days. Once the schedule is made it can't be changed.

Please check on any house functions, boys night outs, weddings, ice hockey schedule and anything else that might cause a conflict. The playoffs will be held December 12th to December 16th and the day you play will be determined by how your team does in the round robin.

Playoffs could be any day the week of December 12th.  It is looking like Thursday December 15th and Friday December 16th but these dates could change due to the rinks schedule.  An additional day may be added if needed to accommodate more teams.

The rink is under new management so some things have changed and we might need to adjust to the new management.  That is why I'm uncertain of some of the days.  They need to see what rink time on what days they need for kids clinics and classes they offer every day.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT GAMES COULD START AT 8AM THIS YEAR FOR BOTH ROUND ROBIN AND PLAYOFFS
We are doing a pre-order for T-shirts again this year.  We are taking Pre-orders to help reduce the price and over ordering.  The form for this years shirts will be sent out shortly as we are still working on the design of the shirt.  Any pre-orderd shirts will be $10 except for xxl which is $12.  Any shirt purchased at the rink will be $15 ($17 for xxl).
Please mail your pre-order shirt form with the registration form as pre-orders are due by November 21st as well.  T-shirts and registration payment can be on one check or two seperate.  However you want to handle it.  The shirts will be 50/50 blend.

Forms can be found here: Flyer and Registration Form

Thank you fans and supporters...

Thank you fans and supporters...
Another season has come and gone.  The FDNY Hockey Team would like to take this opportunity to thank all our fans and supporters for making our season such a success. With your help we were able to make a donation to FDNY Fire Family Transport Foundation (http://www.firefamilytransport.org/) to purchase a new van for their fleet. The central focus of the Foundation is assisting the families of firefighters in their times of greatest need, in transporting firefighters, family members and department personnel to and from medical institutions both for care and family support.
 
After the closing of the Nassau Coliseum, we had to move the game back to New York City to Madison Square Garden for the 43rd Annual FDNY-NYPD Charity Hockey Game. This year’s game saw a sold out crowd of almost 17,000 fans. The FDNY Team fell behind a couple goals early in the first period. Joe Sanger made it 3-1 with 5:57 to go in the first period. Anthony Antenucci and Tom Reno scored in the second period. The NYPD led 6-3 at the beginning of the third period. Chris Princiotta scored halfway through the third to make it 6-4. The FDNY had a 5 on 3 power play with 10:22 left on the clock. Chris Princiotta scored again with 2:22 on remaining in the game. FDNY hit the post with under a minute to play but were unable to tie it up. Even though we outshot the NYPD 51-37 we came up a little short in the 6-5 loss. Chris Princiotta was the FDNY MVP of the game with 2 goals and 1 assist.  A special thanks goes out to our scorekeeper Larry ‘Redlight’ Feilich and team photographer Dennis Whittam. Photos of the game and previous games can be seen at http://www.nyfirephotos.com.
 
The King of the Ice Tournament (www.FDNYkingoftheice.com) moved to Northwell Skating Center at Eisenhower Park. We were able to have 2 rinks going this year and cut the tournament down to 8 days. Thank you to all FDNY members that participated. Congratulations to E-14/E-65 on winning the 21st Annual King of the Ice. The King of the Wheels Tournament was another success heading into its 7th year. Thank you to everyone that came out for it.
 
Over the past months we have received many emails for purchasing team merchandise. We would like to announce that we have partnered up with Sideline Swap (https://sidelineswap.com/FDNYHockey) to sell our team merchandise. We will be selling t-shirts for men, women and kids, sweatshirts, hats and jerseys.
 
Again, the FDNY Hockey Team would like to thank all our fans and supporters. Without you we wouldn’t be able to make the charitable donations that we do. See you again next year.
 
Tom Reno – General Manager
Derek Kern – Manager
Frank Heal - Secretary

FDNY....5 In A Row

Th FDNY and NYPD squared off on Sunday, April 14th for the 40th Annual Hockey Game at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.  The NYPD took a 1-0 lead one minute into the first period with a goal by Collis (Sessa, Venticinque).  The FDNY tied it up at 7:50 in with a goal from Jim Becker (Mullan).  Later on in the period NYPD's Ryan (Sessa) scored at 13:44 to make the game 2-1.
Wes Cookingham scored 3:43 into the 2nd period from the point off a pass from Eddie Bohan.  Four minutes later Kurt Bruckbauer scored from the point from a pass from Jim Becker.  That would do it for the scoring for the second period.  NYPD had three power play opportunities and FDNY had one but no one was able to score on them.NYPD started off the 3rd period on a power play but FDNY was able to kill it off.  No more scoring for the entire 3rd period.  NYPD had its final chance at 19:39 and pulling their goalie for a 6 on 4 power play but the excellent penalty killing and strong play of goalie Shawn Mullan lead to a 3-2 FDNY victory.
This was the 5th year in a row the FDNY has won the annual hockey game bringing there final record to 23 wins, 15 losses and 2 ties. 
FDNY Goalie Shawn Mullan was the teams MVP stopping 25 shots and assisting on a goal.
