Miss Hockey? Take in a Warriors Game

NHL labor troubles may help local players gain fans.

While the National Hockey League cancels games because of deadlocked labor contract talks, local fans of the sport are considering other options—such as Watchung Hills Regional varsity hockey.

The team's season begins at 7 p.m. Dec. 1 at The Rock Ice Center in Dunellen, with an anxious team ready to play. They'll take on Hunterdon Central and may find some new fans in the stands.  

"Another friend who is also a big hockey fan mentioned to me he is going to watch high school and college hockey and to hell with the NHL guys this year!" parent Albert LoGiudice said. 

The team's new coach, Billy McCreary, is a third-generation hockey professional, who brings his expertise to Watchung Hills.

"The kids love working for him and I think the opportunity for them to really learn is great," LoGiudice said.

Hockey fans looking at an empty season for the Devils can plan ahead for the Warriors regular season schedule:
