Hall named to elite hockey squad

16 years ago
    Hodgdon High School junior and hockey standout Morgan Hall, son of Perry and Kim Hall, recently earned a spot on the Super Elite Maine Moose junior hockey team.

    Hall, who has played on the Houlton-Hodgdon Black Hawks for the last three years, is looking to lengthen his regular hockey season and gain on-ice experience by adding an extra 40 games to his usual high school season.
Hall will be traveling to the Kennebec Ice Arena in Hallowell for practices and home games to play with some of the top tier players in the state of Maine. The Moose play a schedule that includes teams from all over New England, as well as a few international teams.
“The competition is a lot different than high school. Its definitely higher skilled and faster paced,” explained Hall.
In addition to the 40-game season, Hall will be playing in three to four showcase tournaments, will have 200 hours of on-ice training, and will receive academic guidance and college application assistance. He is looking to use this opportunity with the Moose to gain knowledge and experience that will help him at the next level after he graduates from Hodgdon High School in 2009.
Hall, who has grown up playing hockey in the Southern Aroostook Minor Hockey Association (SAMHA) recreational system, is used to playing against tough, international competition and should have no problem adapting to the faster-paced game at the junior level.
The Maine Moose program prides itself on developing and maximizing exposure of hockey players who are looking to play college hockey. They have recently ended their 2007-2008 season after making the playoffs in the International Junior Hockey League.
