Excited to announce - new varsity Assistant Coach

I am excited to share that we have a new varsity assistant coach - Kris Tountas! Kris grew up playing hockey in the Chicago area for the Falcons and Chargers. After midgets, he left to play junior hockey in the WSHL. After 3 seasons in the WSHL, he made the USHL training camp in Green Bay and teams from the ECHL and SPHL expressed serious interest. Unfortunately injuries kept him from pursuing hockey any further. Kris is going to be a great fit for varsity and a great fit for the organization. If you see Kris around the rink, please make him feel welcome. 

Excited to Announce New JV Coach - Anthony Petersen

Anthony has been coaching hockey for over ten years from mites through high school. His most recent stop was as the Varsity/JV Coach at Naperville Central High School. Outside of hockey Anthony is a Dean of Students at a middle school in Elmhurst. His education background can also be seen within his coaching philosophy as has believes in teamwork, which is obtained through skill, discipline, hard work and continuity within the team.  While teaching the skills necessary to be victorious in hockey, his players also learn valuable life lessons such as goal setting, teamwork, dedication and discipline. Anthony is excited to be a part of the BG/H/W family. Please welcome him when you see him at the rink.  

Congratulations to Anthony DaSilva - 2022/23 All State!

The 2021 Alumni game was a huge success! Thank you to the 30+ alumni that were there. It was great seeing you on the ice and catching up with you. Hopefully we'll see everyone back next year and a few more that were unable to make it this time. 

Charity Skate was a HUGE success!!!

The Veterans Shelter reached out to offer their gratitude and appreciation for being chosen by BGHW Stampede for the charity skate. They found the donation to be especially meaningful during this Thanksgiving season. The donation of $3,700 will support housing and job programs for veterans in northern Illinois. The hundreds of donation items will stock their outreach van and Freedom Commissary for the winter season. A shirt and basket of Stewart’s Stampede Coffee was also donated to the staff at the shelter.
Big thanks to all the players and families that contributed their time to make it happen.
