SARATOGA SPRINGS — On May 24-30, the Albany Capitals, a team of 12-year-old hockey players, embarked on a journey representing the United States at the EuroChem Cup in Novomoskovsk, Tula, Russia.

"This is the first time a U.S. team has participated in the tournaments’ eight-year history. A great honor and experience for the kids, the team and families of the Capital District and Central New York area,” the press release said.

The EuroChem Cup is one of the largest children’s hockey tournaments in Europe with teams from eight different nations competing this year. Participating teams included this year: Belgium, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Russia, Switzerland, and the United States of America.

“For each country participating in the tournament, middle schools in Novomoskovsk will be assigned a country.  The students then learn about the country (and city), paint themselves in its colors and become their fans for the duration of the tournament,” according to the website.

The teams roster includes: Emmit Porter, Hunter Bridges, Santino Pedulla, Liam Chartrand, Gavin Parks, Nathaniel Poole, Karter Kenniston, Logan Wood, Ben Dalton, Jonah Vormwald, Noah Chen, Andrew Coston, and Matthew Bradley.

The team is coached by Brad Chartrand, who is a former ice hockey right winger with a fiveyear career in the NHL playing for the Los Angeles Kings. He played 215 regular season games, scoring 25 goals and assists for 50 points, picking up 122 penalty minutes. Chartrand now resides in Saratoga Springs. The Albany Capitals ranked number 10 out of 12 in the EuroChem Cup 2018.
