The East Coast Elite League (ECEL) has announced that the Boston Jr. Rangers have been accepted as new member of the ECEL 18U Division for the 2016-17 season.

The Jr. Rangers have been very successful competing in some of the top leagues in New England. This program produces high quality teams at all levels and matches well with the ECEL line-up of teams for the 2016-17 season.

“The Boston Jr. Rangers organization is one that we are very proud to welcome to the ECEL.  This program has a very strong reputation for producing talented and competitive hockey teams. The Jr. Rangers are notorious for moving players on to the next level, and now adding the ECEL to their plate will make the organization even harder to stay away from,” said Program Director, Peter Alden.

"The Rangers organization is thrilled to be joining the ECEL for the 2016-17 season.  The ECEL has proven to be a top league in the country with the best exposure possible.  With first class facilities and staff this is going to be a great move for us," said Rangers Director, John Hutcheon.

The Boston Jr. Rangers organization, which is located just outside of Boston, Massachusetts, is an icon for Massachusetts hockey.  Along with the 18U Midget Tier I team that will compete in the ECEL, the Jr. Ranges have a very strong youth program.  The ECEL will enable the Jr. Rangers to compete against some of the best teams from the East Coast, as well as, the West Coast ( California Wildcats & Colorado RoughRiders)  and Canada (Hill Academy).
