The Admirals will be playing in the Lightning Cup at Amalie Arena this Sunday February 10th at 8:15pm and will be streamed live on Twitter!

Good Luck Team!!!



On January 27th,  Stanley Cup Winner Dmitry Afanasenkov joined us here at Ellenton Ice to work with our Rec kids.

We had 4 groups at an hour each with over 100 players from our Rec hockey divisions from all levels- Squirts through Bantam. The kids, as well as the parents, were stoked.

The kids gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and skill from the power skating drills and we were all so grateful that he joined us here at Ellenton Ice!

We’re looking forward to having him back March 31 to work with our Rec kids again!!!
