Congrats to 2006 forward, Ava Thomas, on advancing to the USA Hockey U18 Women’s National Festival this August in Buffalo, NY.
Thomas is one of 18 Forwards selected for the festival, which consists of the top 2007, 2006, & 2005 players in the country. Players were evaluated at the U18 Select Camp this past week in St. Cloud, MN - going from 78 to 32 players total.
Jr. Flyers Alumnus, Kenny Connor, was drafted by the LA Kings in the 2022 NHL Draft.
Kenny played with the Dubuque Fighting Saints in the USHL this past season and recorded 56 points in 61 games played.
No matter if it’s on the penalty kill, five on five defensively and offensively, and even on the powerplay, Kenny’s best aspect— and by far— is how much he loves to steal pucks using his stick.
I think a lot of that steal success using interceptions with the stick is a big thanks to his defensive read that he has in opponents.
Kenny played for the Jr Flyers at the Bantam and Midget age levels before moving on to other teams such as USNTDP, US National U17 Team, and USHL with the Dubuque Fighting Saints.
Catching up with Kenny this weekend he had this to say about his time playing for the Jr Flyers.
“The Jr. Flyers were an instrumental program in my development as a player coming up through youth hockey. I can’t thank the coaches and trainers enough for the help and guidance they have provided in my journey to this stage in my hockey career.”
The Jr Flyers organization wish nothing but future success to a great young man and very good hockey player we hope to someday follow his career in the NHL.
The Philadelphia Jr. Flyers Hockey Club and IceLine hockey community congratulate and wish best of luck to Gavin and Liam Clark (Downingtown, PA), who will be competing for Team Pennsylvania in the 2022 Brick Invitational Hockey Tournament July 4th-8th at the West Edmonton Mall in Alberta, Canada.

The Brick Invitational started in 1990 and quickly became one of the preeminent minor hockey tournaments around the world, with hundreds of players who have played in the Tournament going on to play in the junior, university and professional ranks. Organized by a team of dedicated volunteers, the Tournament is the brainchild of Bill Comrie who, in the winter of 1990, met with executives at The Brick Warehouse Corporation and expressed his desire to create a tournament to showcase the best 9- and 10-year-old hockey players in North America. Now over 30 years later, Craig Styles, along with Andy Wigston, Executive Director and their incredible committee and team of volunteers, have created what has become an experience of a lifetime for many minor hockey players and their families.
