“It’s been extremely fulfilling to witness the growth of the Anaheim Ducks High School Hockey League over the last three years,” said Vice President – THE RINKS Art Trottier. “The expansion from one team in 2008, up to our 11 current teams, is a great example of the roots we are continuing to build here in Southern California.”
The 2010-11 ADHSHL season culminated with a championship match on Feb. 28 between junior varsity clubs JSerra Catholic High and Servite High. Over 3,000 fans attended the game held at Honda Center, as Servite skated to a 5-1 victory and first-ever ADHSHL title. In addition, the varsity squad from Santa Margarita Catholic High served as California’s sole representative at the USA Hockey High School Varsity National Championships from Mar. 23-27, 2011 in Bensenville, IL.
The Ducks launched the Anaheim Ducks High School Hockey League on July 1, 2008 with JSerra Catholic High School (San Juan Capistrano) as its charter member. Santa Margarita Catholic High (Santa Margarita) joined in 2009. The league then swelled to seven clubs for the 2010-11 season, with the addition of five teams and three new schools: Servite High School (Anaheim), Damien High School (La Verne) and Lutheran High School of Orange County (Orange). All league games are played on Saturdays at THE RINKS - Anaheim ICE. As the league continues to grow, the Anaheim Ducks will continue to provide financial support for each team involved in the program.
