More than 40 teams traveled to New England over the weekend to enjoy some holiday hockey with fireworks both on and off the ice at Lobsterfest. This annual event regularly marks the end of the summer season for LGS Hockey, as many players across North America shift their focus towards the end of summer and the quickly approaching ‘19-20 winter season. With seven different divisions, we take a look at all of our weekend champions and how they got the gold at Lobsterfest.
In the ‘05 Division, Champions Hockey went a perfect 6-0-0 in the tournament by posting back-to-back shutouts on Sunday to take the title. The “Champions” scored five-or-more goals in five of the six games over the weekend.
The Montreal Royals survived the Ice Kings Rebels 1-0 in the ‘06 Division finale; the Royals’ closest contest of the weekend in which they went undefeated 6-0-0 in the tournament.
The ‘07 Division went to Atlantic Hockey, thanks to a stingy defensive effort. In their final four games of the tournament, Atlantic allowed just one goal against — a first-period strike in the championship in which they won 3-1 over CDM.
A 4-1 decision in the ‘08 finale was the closest game of the weekend for champion NJ Invasion. Outscoring opponents 37-to-9 led the Invasion to a dominant 6-0-0 record over the seven-team ‘08 Division.
The Griffons won four of their six games in the ‘09 Division by just one goal, including three in a row to win the championship. A 3-2 win in the semifinals of SHD Mid-Atlantic and a 2-1 decision over Blue Chip Futures in the final capped off a thrilling weekend for the Griffons.
No team in the tournament scored more goals than SHD Mid-Atlantic – Davino in the ‘10 Division. With 44 goals scored in six games, SHD cruised to a 6-0 win in the championship and was never held to less than four goals scored during the weekend.
In the ‘11 Division, it was SHD Mid-Atlantic – Kelly claiming the championship in a different fashion. Through five tournament games, SHD allowed just three goals against — two of which came in the final — finishing the weekend with a 9-2 victory over the Nordiques Hockey Club.
The end of the weekend marks the conclusion of the summer tournament season for LGS Hockey, as we — along with players, parents, families and coaches — shift our attention to the upcoming winter season. In a four-month span, we hosted more than 650 teams at 10 different tournaments in eight different locations in North America. Looking for the next stop in your legacy?
