Moynihan drafted by USHL

We listed a few of our top local hockey stars whom were drafted by the USHL earlier this week, including No. 6 pick overall, Brian Pinho, of North Andover, who starred at St. John’s Prep.

Well, we left a pretty good one out: Windham’s Connor Moynihan. He was selected in the 26th round, 378th overall.

Only 15, the Windham High frosh was one of the youngest players picked in the draft by the Des Moines Buccanneers. The 6-3, 200-pound foward, who is leading the Windham High baseball team with a .600 batting average, made the transition from defenseman to forward this past season with the Islanders of the U.S. Elite Hockey League.

Moynihan is projected to be a high draft pick in the June QMJHL draft (Quebec Major Junior Hockey League).

COACH Cavanaugh gives kudos

New University of Connecticut head hockey coach, Mike Cavanaugh had a busy few days holding press as he leaves Boston College, where he was for 18 seasons. He helped recruit talent that won four national titles.

But Cavanaugh went out of his way to give props to his hometown, of North Andover, where he played hockey almost as soon as he could walk.

”[Boston College] will always be a special place in my heart, but it will be no more special than Bowdoin College was to me when I went there as an undergrad or North Andover High School was and the town of North Andover that I grew up in,” said Cavanaugh. “They’re all special to me. I think that it’s important to always remember your roots.”

Fantasy Camp is back

The One Day Fantasy Camp for pro wrestling will be held Saturday, June 15 at the New England Pro Wrestling Academy at 100 Belmont Street in North Andover.

The cost of the camp is $79.
