WHS Favorite Hockey Teams
Going around and getting people's favorite teams and why
by Owen Carey
With the start of the NHL 2022-2023 season, I went around Wethersfield High School and asked students and teachers what their favorite NHL team is and why, here is what they had to say.
I asked Jack Millen, a senior on the WHS hockey team what his favorite hockey team is and why and here's what he said: ”The Tampa Bay Lightning because they won back to back.”
I also came across Anthony Ruck also on the WHS hockey team and he said, ''The [Washington] Capitals because I have to stay loyal to Ovechkin”. Ruck wants to stay loyal to Ovechkin because he is called “The Great 8” because he's second all time with the most goals behind “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky and he's going to pass him in the next few years, and so Anthony Ruck stays loyal because he knows one day Ovechkin will be the best.
Meanwhile, after Ruck I asked Sean O'leary on the WHS hockey team the same question and he said, “The Bruins because they're a good all around team.”
He also loves how they always go to hospitals during the winter. He also said, “Patrice Bergeron is the best player but he said they're not going to win the cup this year.”
In the cafeteria, I saw Athletic Director Mr. Maltese and asked him what his favorite team is. He put a very nice local spin to his answer when he said, ''The Wethersfield Eagles because of all great things on and off the ice for the town. Also how they give good promotion for students to come and watch and how they always do charity games”.
Later in the day I ran into Matt Snieder and Owen Thulen both on the WHS hockey team and Matt said” the Bruins because I watched them all the time growing up”. And OWen said” Penguins- because Fleury is my favorite goalie of all time and he was on that team so I like Pittsburgh and my dad and I grew up watching them”.
