The 2011-2012 season took a turn-around as the Blue Jays finished the year with a final record of 5W-4L in the MDCHA making a berth to the playoffs. Unfortunately, the Blue-Jays playoffs dreams were cut short as they lost against a team that they had swept during the regular season - the Wesley College Wolverines. Stay tuned as the website is under new management and will be updated in the upcoming weeks. If you have any questions feel free to contact me - Hesam

The 2010 - 2011 season will begin at the end of September for the Hopkins hockey team and we are always looking for new members. This season brings with it 14 games (see schedule section) and we are hoping to make a deep run in the MDCHA play-offs. For more information about the team, you can e-mail hopkinshockey@jhu.edu, and be sure to check out our table at the student activities fair on September 3rd. - Frank

We will probably not be able to have as many practices as we would like this year. Start (if you haven't already) getting into condition. You should be able to run 2 continuous miles now, and 5 miles by the beginning of school. Also, work on shoulder strength. It helps with preventing injuries and leading yourself down the ice. Working on your leg strength is important; with greater push and stronger ankles you can make many more quick and deceiving moves. - Coach

Head coach Kent Roddy has just announced today that Dan Kunath will assume the role of assistant coach. As a recent alumnus of the team we look to his experience in leadership, recruiting, and player development. During his tenure with the team Dan was the starting goalie.

Also announced today was Paul Frank as team captain for the 2009 - 2010 season. During his inaugural season Paul was named assistant captain and garnered MDCHA All-Conference honors. We look forward to the leadership and guidance offered by Dan and Paul for the upcoming season.

As the semester draws to a close we would like to thank the class of 2009 for their contributions to the club. From left to right, Peter Sobel, Dan Kunath, Sam Alexander, Jane O'Connor, Ryan McLelland, Taig Rajpal, and Bill Dwyer. This class carried a lot of leadership including the man who made it all possible in the modern era by coordinating the re-establishment of the team in 1985, Bill Dwyer. It was a rare treat to have you back as a late season addition. With the exception of interim coach Sam Alexander, the rest of the leadership roles were taken by members of the class of 2009 including our team president and captain, Ryan McLelland, the vice-president Taig Rajpal, treasurer Peter Sobel, and manager Jane O'Connor. Your tireless dedication has allowed this club to run smoothly.

We wish the class of 2009 the best in their future endeavors! The torch has been passed and the club looks to continue this amazing legacy for many seasons to come.

Congratulations on a great season guys! Many thanks to Coach Kent Roddy for his efforts throughout the season as well as the outgoing administrative officers whose tireless work has allowed the club to thrive: Ryan "Fuzz" McLelland (President/Captain), Taig Rajpal (VP), Peter Sobel (Treasurer), and Jane O'Connor (Manager). Also, the team has selected Ryan McLelland and Taig Rajpal as co-MVPs, Wyatt Roscoe as rookie of the year, and Paul Frank as unsung hero.

As we turn a new leaf, please join me in welcoming our new officers: Taig Rajpal (President), Frank Sweeney (VP), and Joe Leanza (Treasurer). I, Nam Pho, am taking over web hosting duties so feel free to contact me with any issues.
