Lovell Hockey would like to congratulate both Jack and Nick Ring on their commitment to the University of New Hampshire. Jack, a late 2000 Forward, has really developed over the last few years. Jack had played defense for the Boston Advantage U16 and U18 teams over the last 3 years and made the transition for Forward this year. It immediately paid huge dividends. The 6’3 180 pound forward took some time to figure out the new position but has now shown that he is an elite forward in the New England area.
“Jack has pro potential with his size and speed and has really made himself a better player through the work he has put in at Lovell Hockey during the Spring and Summer’s over the last 5 years. He will need to add some weight and strength over the next year in order to become that impact forward that we expect him to be.” Said Tim Lovell Boston Advantage U18 Head Coach.
Nick Ring is a late 2003 Forward that has been with Lovell Hockey and Boston Advantage for 9 years. Nick grew up at Advantage playing for legendary coaches Joe Nagle and Matt Glennon. Nick was always on the smaller side as a player in the 2003 age group and always a good player but never the best. Over the last 2 years we have seen dramatic growth with Nick and his game. Nick was a member of the very talented U16 Boston Advantage Full Season team this year and developed very well. He has put in the time over his career and it is proving it’s worth. Now at 5’9 and 160 pounds he isn’t so small anymore out on the ice. Nick is a very cerebral hockey player who is great in traffic with the puck and makes guys around him better.
Tim Lovell said about Nick “If Nick gets half the size his brother has you are going to have a very high end prospect in the future. Nick has worked hard to overcome adversity being small in stature but that has helped him to become the player that he is now. I’m really happy for Nick. He had a lot of suitors and I’m happy he’s going to Mike Souza and the UNH staff . They are getting two great ones!”
