EJEPL Executive of the Year Award Goes to Protec Ducks Patrick Alvin
Uniondale, NY: At the EJEPL annual spring meeting, Protec Ducks Hockey Director Patrick Alvin was presented with the Paul Gilmartin Executive of the Year award. With over 70 teams in the league, this prestigious award was given to the Protec Ducks on behalf of their continuous growth as a program, success in the EJEPL, and organizational excellence. Coach Alvin remarked, “This is a great time for our program and I’m proud of the work that has been done on and off the ice to make the Protec Ducks the successful program it is today.” On the ice, Coach Alvin’s teams have led the charge in the ultra- competitive EJEPL. In the past two seasons, his peewee teams (04, 05) have won the EJEPL league championship and his squirt team (07) lost the finals in overtime. Coach Alvin stated, “There is no doubt that the Protec Ducks have left their mark in the EJ the last few years and I look forward to seeing 7 of our teams compete in the EJ; our largest number of teams ever.” The Protec Ducks continue to grow and demonstrate success as we anticipate our largest program ever next season with approximately 270-275 skaters.
