"Bringing Allan onboard is exciting for our organization. Another local guy who made his way through the ranks, fresh off winning a national championship. He understands what it means to be a part of a team. We're excited for how he can develop our players." - Cody Murphy

Northbrook Bluehawks Welcome Luke Sandler!

The Northbrook Bluehawks have hired Luke Sandler to be head coach of the Bantam AA team for the 2022-23 season, Hockey Director Cody Murphy announced today.

Sandler brings a wealth of knowledge and energy to the Northbrook Bluehawks coaching staff. He has played at some of the highest levels of hockey throughout his career including AAA, NAHL, BCHL, USHL, NCAA Division I, and professionally in the ECHL with the Kalamazoo Wings. 

"I'm excited to begin the season. I want our team to play hard and fast. I had the chance to see a lot of our Bluehawks players at the Battle of the Border tournament this past spring and I'm excited for the potential in the fall," says Head Coach Luke Sandler.

Travel Warm-Up's Now Required for Travel Teams

The organization is now requiring Bluehawks Warm Ups for games and tournaments. As a result, all travel players will need a Bluehawks Warm-Up set from Pure Hockey for the coming season. If you bought a new one last year (Dark Blue Bauer Warm-Ups) from Pure Hockey, you do not need a new one. Many players have the old, light blue warms which are no longer used.

Pure Hockey in Glenview has sizes to try on if you’re not sure what size pants or jacket to order. 
This Pure Hockey Store Link is good until 7/7 and then our team order will be placed. Merchandise will be shipped directly to your house. Order any other items you see but make sure your child has a new set of travel warm-ups for this coming season. They are a mandatory purchase if you don’t have a new set. 
Please email Chris Walsh with any questions.´╗┐
