Since 2012 the New England Wolves have been developing aspiring players for college hockey and beyond. Starting in Waterville Valley, with just one team, and winning multiple Academy East Hockey League championships before joining the Eastern Hockey League, and moving the operation to Laconia, the Wolves have always prioritized player development and experience to drive the program forward.
Since moving to Laconia the Wolves have won several youth championships in the NEPHL, and an EHLP championship in 2018-19. Using a simple "one team at each level" philosophy, the Wolves have stressed quality program offerings and coaching, to provide a complete player experience.
More importantly, they have sent nearly 100 athletes to college during their time in Laconia, including moving players onto higher levels of Jr and even Pro hockey. Following both the 2017-18 & 2018-19 seasons the Wolves were awarded the EHL's "Humanitarians of the Year" award. Additionally, they were awarded a "Spirit of NH" award in November 2018 for their outstanding volunteer and community service efforts.
