The Whalers are proud to announce the signing of Jared Fisher from Fort Wayne, IN to their 18U team. The 2000, 5’9”-170 lb forward spent the last two seasons with the Skipjacks Hockey Club  16U team in the USPHL.

Whalers 18U Head Coach and Director of Recruiting, Anthony Matarazzo, had the following to say about Fisher:

"Getting a player of his caliber was a priority for us heading into the off season this year. He not only brings speed and size to our forward group but also makes players better around him. After watching him in the National Boys Select 17 camp, and seeing him this past weekend in the USPHL Showcase, were excited for training camp."

America’s Future: USPHL Transforms, Provides New Opportunities for Fifth Season in 2017-18

March 3, 2017

By Joshua Boyd

Pop quiz: What do Jack Eichel, Charlie Coyle and Jimmy Vesey have in common?

We’ll give you a hint, it’s the same thing they have in common with Ryan Donato, Robert Carpenter and Danny Tirone.

Come to think of it, those six share the same thing in common with Brady Fleurent, Tommy Besinger and Ross Olsson.

The first trio of players are young NHL standouts. The second group include two high scorers and a top goalie in the NCAA Division 1 ranks. The third group are players who are among the top scorers of NCAA Division 3 hockey this season, including the nation’s scoring leader Fleurent.

Jersey Shore Whalers announce revamp for 2017-2018

By Whaler's Staff

BRICK, NJ - February 15, 2017 The Jersey Shore Whalers, members of the United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL) are proud to announce that the USP3 Junior team will move up to the Premier Division for the 2017-2018 season.

“We are very glad to be able to announce our acceptance in the Premier Division”, stated Jay Lampiasi, President and GM of the Whalers. "The Whalers staff and players have worked very hard to get us to this point. It also shows that the league recognizes our accomplishments and the way that the Whalers have represented the league.  The move to the Premier Division will change the dynamics of the organization. We realized that in order to be able to grow and provide our players with the best opportunities, it was imperative for the junior team to compete at a higher level.  It will now give our players a clear path of progression within our organization from Midget to Junior.  The Premier Division will provide a way for us to funnel our higher skilled players to affiliate teams in the NCDC.  In addition of being able to recruit some of the best talent in the New Jersey area, the organization will now attract interest from players at all our levels throughout the country as well as internationally.” 

The Whalers Junior team has competed in the USP3 (previously the Empire) division for the past three years with great success. The team posted 30+ wins in each of their first two years in the league and advanced to the USP3 Championships in 2016.  The Whalers will make their third straight playoff appearance this season.  In the short time, two of their former alumni went on to play NCAA hockey at the DII and DIII level.  Several others are playing at high levels of ACHA collegiate hockey.  In 2016, the USPHL awarded the Whalers Midget teams at the 18U, 16U and 16U-Futures.  

The Jersey Shore Whalers will field USPHL teams at Junior (Premier), along with Midget 18U, 16U, and 16U-Futures for the 2017-2018 season.  The Whalers will be announcing a set of events shortly to include a “Meet the Coaches” night where players and parents can meet and talk with the Whalers’ Coaches and staff, Pre-Tryout Camps and Tryouts for both Midget and Junior level players.

Whalers 16U go 3-1 in Phillly

01/31/2017, 10:15pm EST
By Charlie Mylod

It was civil war hockey down in Philly this past weekend for the U16 whalers as they faced off against 4 teams from the north in the USPHL Philly Showcase. 

They dropped their first battle to CP Dynamo as the boys never got going and lost 4-0. They beat the 2nd place Rochester Monarchs in the night game as Nick Swain won it in OT from a nice helper from Sean Mylod, winning 3-2. Cam Conrad was stellar between pipes. 

The 16's then downed the Syracuse Stars 5-3 as 5 different whalers tallied goals, Swain, Hunter Bello, Ryan Burns, Stan Vyrich and Paul Keyes. Andrew Slobiski got the win in net.  In the finale the boys topped the Hartford Wolfpack 2-1 as Ryan Dineen and Burns scored and Conrad solidified the W in the crease. In the end the 16's left with a 3-1 record. Well done boys !!!
