Lockport Express to Hold Rookie Camp

With the 2015-2016 hockey season barely over, it's time to think about the 2016-2017 season in Lockport for the Lockport Express.  The Express will be holding a Rookie Camp on April 9 and 10, at the Cornerstone Ice Arena.

Each day will consist of two sessions, off-ice training and on-ice training. Off-ice for both days will take place at 1:30pm, while on-ice activities will  begin at 3pm. The cost is $40 per player, and players should attend both sessions.

The Lockport Express is a Junior A hockey team playing in the NA3HL. The goal of the league is to develop student athletes so that they are prepared to move on to the next level of hockey, whether that be NAHL, USHL, or at the collegiate level.

In two years of playing in Lockport, the Express has had three players make commitments to ACHA D1 hockey schools. Jacob Burford committed to playing at Rochester College in Michigan, while Frank Vecchio II and Christopher Gasiewicz both committed to Niagara University.

Any questions should be directed to Head Coach, Brian Becker, or General Manager Frank Vecchio.
