The Connecticut Oilers are members the Eastern Hockey League (EHL) for Junior "A".
Oilers teams will interact with one another unlike the typical hockey organization. With an emphasis on development, the organization's teams will provide Oilers coaching staff and outside recruiters an opportunity to view our players within a system, as they grow both physically and mentally as hockey players. Each player within our ranks will have an opportunity to play at the "next level" within the Oilers' organization. As such, our organization will be a true "feeder" system, where players will be groomed to participate at our top EHL level.
What we look for in players at all levels:
The Oiler player must have’s:
Desire: to work hard on and off the ice and do whatever it takes to make the Oilers better as a team
Character: we look for future leaders. One who can lead by example in the class room, locker room, community, on and off the ice.
Hockey IQ: As an Oilier you, a premium is placed on skill, however you need to be able to think the game in order to play the game.
