    2019 - 2020
    Head Coach: Timothy Joncas

    Westminster School plays a very competitive varsity ice hockey schedule in arguably the best high school hockey league in the country, known as the Housatonic Conference. The ultra-competitive nature of the league, coupled with the high quality of Westminster’s games and players, attracts coaches from Division I and Division III colleges as well as professional scouts.
     
    Westminster was the Founders League Champion four times, most rccently in 2019 and has advanced to the semifinals and finals of the New England Championship as recently as 2016. Out of 62 New England Prep programs, Westminster is consistently in the top 16 teams that compete for a New England Championship at season’s end.
     
    The Martlets competed for a New England Championship in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1997, 2000, 2001, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2019. In 2011, Westminster was crowned the New England Large School Champion. The team is fortunate to play in the Flood Marr Holiday Tournament and has won the tournament four times since entering it, winning it most recently in 2011 and 2015.
     
    The Westminster hockey program focuses on each of the school’s four core values, with a priority placed on character and character development. Graduates of Westminster have gone on to do wonderful things in numerous fields. Our graduates have distinguished themselves as student-athletes, leaders and above all else, good, responsible citizens.
     
    Head Coach Tim Joncas (14th season) is excited to welcome 13 letter winners back for the 2019-2020 season. Joncas has been head coach of the Martlets since 2007, earning Large School Coach of the Year honors in 2011. Assistant Coach Jay Keough begins his eighth season behind the Martlet bench and brings with him more than 12 years of coaching experience in the NEPSAC. Coach Keough’s primary responsibility will be as the director of recruiting. Paul Kendall, now in his third year on the team’s staff, has been a coach in the Westminster hockey program since 2012.
     
    Graduates from Westminster and the ice hockey program have gone on to play at a variety of top schools such as Yale University, Princeton University, Dartmouth College, the University of New Hampshire, St. Lawrence University, the U.S. Military Academy, the Air Force Academy, Boston College, Boston University, the University of Vermont, Colgate, Holy Cross, Middlebury College, Bowdoin College, Amherst College, Trinity College, Connecticut College, Quinnipiac University and Wesleyan University. Several alumni have been drafted by NHL teams and have gone on to play professionally. In the 2007 NHL draft, a Westminster alumnus was drafted 35th overall by the Boston Bruins, and in the 2008 draft, the Chicago Blackhawks took another former Westminster player.
