NM Ice Wolves seek host families

July 21, 2019

The New Mexico Ice Wolves are looking for a number of families to help host the junior hockey players that will be joining the team this coming school year.

The players aged 16-20 will be coming from across the country, Canada and even Europe to play for the amateur Ice Wolves, an expansion team in the North American Hockey League. Players in the league are looking to strengthen their chances of earning a college hockey scholarship.

“In junior hockey host families are perhaps the single most important factor in a team’s success both on and off the ice and this is an area where we really need the support of our hockey families,” said Ice Wolves coach and general manager Phil Fox. “As a former player in the junior hockey leagues, I know how vital host families can be as a support system for players who are away from their homes and families. To this day I remain in contact with all of my host families and know how important and rewarding it is for families to open up their homes and hearts to the hockey players that will be moving to Albuquerque this summer.”
