Canton, MA - The Boston Junior Whalers 2008 Elite and U16 Elite teams pieced together two perfect records this past weekend at the Blue Chip Invite, compiling unblemished 6-0 records en route to capturing the 2018 Blue Chip Invite Championships.

The BJW 2008 Elite Team kicked off the weekend with a dominant performance, defeating Northstar Elite (NJ) by a score of 8-1 on Friday morning.  The boys kept the momentum rolling into Friday evening, getting the best of the Tropics in a scrappy 4-1 win to finish the day at 2-0 and at the top of the standings.  Saturday proved to be more of the same, as the 08's bested the Mass Edge 67's by a score of 4-1, before capping off Round Robin with a 9-0 routing for the Connecticut Jr. Rangers; which was good enough to earn them a bye past the Quarter-Final Round, and secure the #1 Seed in the semi-finals.  On Playoff Sunday, the 08's grinned out a 2-1 win over the North Jersey Invasion before defeating a strong TT Super Hockey team from Westchester in the Championship Game 3-0!

The BJW U16 Elite Team began the weekend with a pair of convincing wins on Friday afternoon.  The U16's skated past CC Hockey Group and the Blue Chip Selects, with scored of 5-0 and 5-1 respectively.  On Saturday, the boys began the day in a battle with a relentless Tropics team which saw them break away win a 5-3 win, before concluding Round Robin with an 11-0 win over Elite Hockey (CT).  On Playoff Sunday, the U16's had a rematch with the Tropics, and ended up emerging victorious with a 4-2 win, and earning a spot in the Championship Game against CC Hockey Group who seemed to have immensely strengthened over the course of the weekend.  After jumping out to an early 2-0 lead, the U16's found themselves deadlocked at 3-3 heading into the final five minutes.  It took nearly the entirety of regulation, but the team netted the game winner with 0:19 on the clock, and broke away as Champions at the 2018 Blue Chip Invite by a score of 4-3!

We are proud of all of our players and coaches on a great weekend, and congratulations to all of our 2018 Blue Chip Invite Champions!
