    Sleavin’s Squirt Team Sweeps Playoffs to Win NTXHL Championship

    Coach Sleavin’s Penguin Squirt B team proved that peaking at the right time can bring good results. After posting a nice 13-5-2 record in the regular season, the young players went 4-0 over the Semi-Final weekend. In the Finals, they doubled the goal production of their opponent and held their two league leading scorers to only one goal each. The two goalie brothers really upped their game in the Finals, posting an average .89 save percentage. The Penguins swept the best two-out-of-three series Final to win the NTXHL Squirt B Championship. Great job players and coaches!

    Penguin Mite Majors Dominate League and Playoffs for NTXHL Championship


    Coach Paul Fletcher’s team capped a remarkable season, going 20-0 in the regular season and sweeping in the Semi-Finals and Finals to win their second straight NTXHL Mite Major Championship. During the season, the Penguins posted the top 4 point leaders in the league averaging 2 to 3 points per game each. The two goal tenders gave up only 15 goals all season, including 8 shutouts where both ranking at the top in save percentage at .89. The Penguins dominated the Semi-Finals posting 30 goals over the 4 games.   They maintained their scoring prowess in the Finals, again averaging 7 per game while outshooting their rival 51-27 for the series and giving up only 1 goal. Their next stop is the Mite National Tournament in St. Louis. A special year for a special Championship team! 

    Mite Majors Celebrate Undefeated Record in League Play

    The young Mites won the NTXHL Mite Division regular season in convincing fashion going 20-0. With a dominant league high GFA of 8.8 they averaged more than 2 goals per game more than their closest rival.  The young guns posted the top four scorers in the League.  The two Penguin goalies also dominated, combining for a stingy .75 GAA, giving up almost 2 per game less than the number two team.  Nice job Penguins!

    Going 5-0 in the tournament, the young Penguins won the Championship on Labor Day against a persistent Jr. Brahmas team 4-2. The 98’s, many of whom have played together for years showed teamwork beyond their years throughout the tournament. They survived with a shoot-out victory on Sunday to get into the finals. One of the wins was a tight 1-0 victory. Using quick shifts, their consistent play on offense and defense was seen over the entire ice. The offensive lines contributed evenly, providing 34 total goals and dominating in shots 136 to 43 for the opponents. The stingy defense allowed only 5 goals by the opponents. Great play in goal was reflected in the skimpy 1 Goal Against Average and an outstanding .914 save percentage. In addition to the best goalie performance for the tournament, the Penguins produced the tournament scoring champion. And, three of the top five scorers in the tournament came from the veteran group. Good job boys!

    Mite Majors Win Dallas Stars Fall Round-Up Tourney Playing Squirt

    Playing in the Squirt Silver Division, the Mites went 4-0 to win the Dallas Stars Fall Round-Up Tournament over the Thanksgiving weekend.  Playing against big and fast opponents from Colorado Springs, Mexico City, and Tulsa, the Penguins posted 25 goals and gave up only 8.  After getting down 0-2 in goals in the first period of the Championship game against a tough Tulsa Flames squad, the Mites dug deep and scored 5 in the second on the way to a 6-4 victory.  Dallas posted the top three scorers and the best goaltending of the tournament.




    During a holiday weekend designed to give thanks, it was what the 98 AA Penguins didn't give that was most notable; namely goals, power play opportunities, shots on goal, odd man rushes, or loose pucks in front of their net. As a result of their defense first, disciplined style of play, the 98 AA's allowed a total of 3 goals against, including 2 shutouts, and went 4-0 to claim the 2008 Fall Roundup Championship.


    The 98 AA's further established what has become their signature trademark by again being the best passing team in the tournament.  It is also evident that each player is committed to the system employed during practice, which stresses hard work and responsibility.


    Congratulations to both the players and their Coaches! All of your hard work is paying off!

    The Dallas Penguins 97 team enjoyed tremendous success this past weekend capturing the Fall Round-Up Tournament Championship. The Penguins went undefeated, winning all four games they participated in, outscoring their opponents 26-10.  The goaltending was stellar and the defense was awesome as their opponents were held to under 20 shots in each of the last three games.  The Penguins had three boys lead the Pee Wee Platinum Division in points and two lead in goals, while Anthony D’Aloisio had top honors for the goalies.  The boys meshed together nicely as they skated their way to victory using teamwork as their top initiative.  Congratulations to all the boys as all their hard work is paying off!!!

    Dallas Penguins Midget Major AA Advance to NTXHL Championship

    A season to remember for the Midget Major AA players will come to an end this weekend with the culmination of The North Texas Hockey League's Championship series versus a extremely tough Texas Brahmas team. The series will be the best of 3 games beginning with game 1 at 1:30 PM on Saturday. Games 2 and 3 (if necessary) will be played Saturday night at 7:00 PM and Sunday Morning at 10:00 AM respectively.  All games will be played at StarCenter Farmers Branch.

    With many of the Penguins facing the end of their Hockey careers last
    weekend, they answered with emotional and courageous performances.
    In Game One the Penguins faced their championship series opponents, the Texas Brahmas. The Brahmas are a very skilled team that possess
    great speed and tenacity. In the end the Penguins prevailed 2-1 behind
    the excellent goaltending performance of Tony Girard. Adam Singer and
    Sean Heidrick both registered Coast to Coast tallies as the Penguin
    defense supplied the offense.
    Game 2 was an incredible match up with the Texas Aces. A team that
    always brings a strong effort combined with an arsenal of goal scorers
    that are very talented. Sam Turner put the Pens up early only to see
    Ryan Holloway tie it 2 minutes later for the Aces. Devin Davis
    supplied all of the second period scoring putting the Aces up 2-1
    after 2. The Penguins came just as if they were playing for their
    playoff, and career lives. They put up three goals in 6 minutes to
    give DJ the 4-2 victory. Justin McDowell added a goal, Sam Turner was
    the man on the spot to clinch the game with an empty netter. But, the
    spectacular game winner came from Chase Bunning as he busted behind the Ace's defense with an incredible breakaway goal.
    Game 3 matched the Penguins against the hardest working, and hardest hitting team of the tournament, Tulsa Flames. The Penguins edged out a tough physical 3-2 victory over a fiercely determined opponent.  Chris Murray scored 2 goals, including a phenomenal short-handed goal that will never be forgotten. Sam Turner lit the red light in the third with the game winner. Tony Girard was again strong in net saving 31 of 33 shots.
    Game 4 lined the Penguins up against the Alliance Bulldogs. It was a
    must to capture at least a tie to advance to the Championship series.
    The talented Bulldogs came full force with two quick goals from Brett
    Jacobson and Michael James to open up the first period. Coach Kowal
    considered the timeout to get his team in order.  He commented " These
    kids find a way each and every week. I just had to let them play
    themselves out of this situation."  The team didn't disappoint as they
    fought back from deficits four times to send the game into overtime.
    Sean Heidrick led the Pens with 2 goals.  Taylor Clymer and Grant
    Willis added goals to send this match into a scoreless overtime
    period. Chris Murray and Justin McDowell converted in the Shootout,
    while Tony Girard came up with 2 big saves on the Alliance shooters to
    capture the victory.
    I urge all DJ'ers to make their way to cheer these incredible kids on
    as many of them put the skates on for the final time. All season long
    they have never quit, this weekend will not be any different. You can
    figure these guys will make it very entertaining if this whole season
    is any indication!

    The Penguins competed in the Nashville President’s Cup Tournament that had 8 other Bantam A teams competing. In round robin play, the Penguins tied the Affton Americans 1-1, and defeated the Charlotte Jr. Checkers and Winston-Salem Ice Hawks 2-0 and 4-2 respectively. The Penguins went into the Semi finals as the second seeded team and played the, Kirkwood Stars, from St. Louis and dominated them in a 10-0 victory. The finals were against the Charlotte Flames who were the #1 seeded team after winning all of their games in the tournament.

    The boys were determined to not let this Championship slip away after losing the last Championship game in their previous tournament. They came out skating hard and were the first to score in the first period. The Penguins scored again in the middle of the third period. Charlotte answered back after pulling their goalie with less than two minutes to play in the game. The Penguins held on for the rest of the game to win the Championship game 2 – 1 against the Charlotte Flames.
    Overall it was a great weekend for the Penguins. The boys played hard and got better as the weekend progressed. Most importantly, they had fun. Congratulations boys!

    Mite Majors Win NTXHL Championship

    Capping a highly successful season, the number 1 seed Penguin Mite Majors won the league championship tournament in a convincing style, winning two straight in the best of three finals series.  The youngsters outscored the gritty cross town rival Brahmas team 10-1 over the two games on Saturday.  The Brahmas came out strong, scoring with only 1:48 gone in the first period of game one.  But the Penguins tied it up 15 seconds later and never looked back, winning 5-1.  Game two was much the same, and five different Penguins scored in the 5-0 win.  The Brahmas defense held the Penguins to only 19 shots in game two, but the Pens defense was even stingier allowing only 9 Brahmas shots.  The two Penguin goal tenders teamed up all tournament long to shut down their opponents. 

    Clearly the Brahmas played with a lot of heart and had great support from their parents and fans.  Visible with their unselfish play, the Penguins showed once again how the coaches’ focus on skill development plus team play gave them the edge they needed throughout the season. 

    All year the Mites had great coaching and great support from the parents which when combined with their hard work yielded a perfect league record (20-0) and playoff run (6-0).  They won 5 of the 7 tournaments they entered including the Chicago Pre-Season Mite AA and the Fifty-First International Silver Sticks Mite Championship.  Overall, they finished 39-2-0, outscoring their opponents 310 to 54 (a 7.56 vs. 1.32 GPGA) and produced the league’s scoring and goalie champions.  It proved to be a very special team all around.  Congratulations Mites!

    Squirt AA NTXHL Champions Roll Perfect 6-0 in Playoff's to Cap Off 2008-2009

    First off, the Dallas Penguins 98 AA’s Coaching Staff and families tip their collective hat to the Dallas Scots 98 AA’s for their effort, fan enthusiasm and well played final round!

    Ultimately, it’s the one intangible that you’ll never see a statistic for what lead to the Penguin championship…Composure. “You can’t teach that” Commented Head Coach Kevin O’Brien, “but you can definitely nurture it” The nurturing process this year came from the boys playing the finals in 3 of 5 tournaments. They learned hard work and team execution is essential to being a champion.  
    Having to comeback from one goal deficits 4 times in 2 games, the Penguins played with a sense of urgency and never gave up a lead once they had it.
    Game One:
    Cole Watson pulled the Penguins even at 1 late in the first period off great passes from Nick Griebenow and Josh Kim.
    Down 2-1 in the second, Nick Alexander tied it up at 2-2, and Nick Mueller pulled the Pens even again to end the second period 3-3.
    In what became their strongest period all season, the Pen’s pulled away in the third, with the Game Winner coming from Mitch McCoy, and an insurance goal from Alexander, whose top shelf back hander came off a clean face off win from Johnny Sadowski deep in the Scot zone. The Defensive trio; Jake Sobieksi, Niko Ala-Kokko and Matthew O’Brien stood strong supporting goalie Kevin Graves in holding the Scots to 3 goals as the Penguin offense pumped 33 shots at the Scots.
    Game Two:
    Nick Mueller took a feed from Boone Hoenshell and Griebenow tying it at 1 on the power play.
    In the second period Watson put the Pen’s ahead with a nice assist from Kyler Paredes and Kim. Mueller gave the Pen’s a two goal lead they would not relinquish weaving down low beating 2 Scots before cashing in the power play Game winner. Kevin Graves and a full Defense with Matthew Butler held down the fort in the third with a strong back check from all the forwards for his sixth playoff win.  
    Game, Season, Champions!
    Season Recap:
    Texas Shootout Champions
    Fall Round Champions
    Silver Stick Regional Champions
    NTXHL Regular Season Champions
    NTXHL Squirt AA Playoff Champions
    Coach O’Brien and staff are very proud of the boys, and want to congratulate them again for their effort and attitude!
    Coach would also like to acknowledge and thank the parents for their commitment and support in making this season such a great success!


    Dallas Penguins Squirt A Team Wins NTXHL Championship

    Lefebvre Dallas Penguins Squirt A team, completed an outstanding season by capturing the NTXHL 2008-2009 Championship in a 2 game sweep against the vastly improved Grapevine Wolves.

    Lefebvre Dallas Penguins went 19-0-1 in regular season play to win the NTXHL Regular Season Championship, which brought tremendous momentum to the playoffs. Winning 3 of 4 games in the semi-finals and only allowing 5 goals, thanks to the defensive play of Nicolas Samadian, Neil Moisan, William Laird, Seiler Burr, and Goaltender Jared Stahel, the Penguins earned top spot going into the Championship series.
    The first game went scoreless virtually the entire 1st period when with 3:06 left on the clock Nicolas Samadian and Ryan Dupre assisted Lane Haught in putting one of many Penguin goals past the Wolves goalie and into the net. Two more goals came shortly after when Conner Simpson scored on a penalty shot and Zach Riley scored ending the first period 3-0.  Within the first minute of the 2nd period Grapevine scored back to back goals to quiet the Penguins fans, but that would be the only Grapevine Wolves goals of the game. Jared Stahel and the Penguins defense dominated the remainder of the game to win with a final score of 7-2.
    The second game was a nail-biter. Zach Riley was the first to score on an assist from Nicolas Samadian; however the Wolves would answer back just seconds later. Play went back and forth with each team scoring 2 more goals. Just as everybody watching thought it was going to overtime, with only 1:42 left in the tied game Lane Haught scored on an assist from Joseph Crump.  Now it was all up to the Penguins defense to keep the Wolves out of the zone and win the game. With a final score of 4-3 the Penguins Squirt A team wins the NTXHL Championship in back-to-back wins over a tough Grapevine Wolves team.
    Eight different Penguin players had points during the final 2 games; it was a testament to the passing, communication and teamwork evident throughout the entire season.
    Thanks to all of the Coaches, parents and players for making this a great season.
    CONGRATULATIONS Penguins Squirt 98 A team on winning both the NTXHL Regular Season and NTXHL Tournament Championships!!!!

    championship decidedly 6-3. The team dedicated the tournament to 

    Coach Anthony Abdou who passed away just 2 days before the 

    tournament. The team played with emotion and intensity and "Anthony" 

    was the cheer in every team huddle. Coach Anthony, this one's for you!


    Anthony Abdou

    It is with heavy sorrow that we acknowledge the passing of Anthony Abdou. Anthony was active in Dallas Hockey circles for the past 12 years.  As a volunteer coach with Dallas Junior Hockey Association Anthony enjoyed his two favorite things in life, Hockey and Kids.

     Anthony exemplified the term “Volunteer Coach.”  He loved being on the ice with kids more than anything.  His efforts were rewarding to him not from compensation, but the smiles he received from his team.

    The rink will be a quiet and empty place without him.  DJHA appreciates all the efforts Anthony gave to our organization.  We will all miss him very much.
