The Frederick Freeze is thrilled to announce our exciting new partnership with Wolfe Hockey Development, the premier institution for goaltender development in the capital region. Pat St Clair, Freeze Hockey Director, expressed our enthusiasm for this collaboration, stating, "We are absolutely thrilled to join forces with Wolfe Hockey to enhance the instruction and development of our goaltenders. Wolfe Hockey's outstanding track record in goaltender development speaks volumes, and we are delighted to introduce this level of expertise to both the Freeze and our dedicated goaltenders.”
What sets Wolfe apart, beyond their stellar reputation in goaltender development, is the addition of our dedicated instructor, JT Ketzenberger. JT is a homegrown talent and a Freeze alum who began his youth hockey journey with the Fury in Frederick. He also spent his initial year of Juniors in our organization and graduated from Urbana High School, where he played under the guidance of our current Freeze U8 Coach Heusser. Pat St Clair is excited to bring JT back into the organization, saying, "Bringing JT into the fold feels like a full-circle moment, and I'm thrilled to have his homegrown talent contributing to our program. He's a Freeze kid who took his playing career to impressive heights, and now he can pass on his invaluable experience and instruction to our young goalies."
JT's journey continued as he advanced his Junior playing career with the Hampton Roads Whalers in the USPHL before transitioning to college play with the D-1 ACHA University of Rhode Island. For the past five years, he has been a dedicated instructor with Wolfe Hockey, further honing his skills and knowledge in goaltender development.
As part of this newly established partnership with Wolfe Hockey, our Frederick Freeze goaltenders can look forward to receiving weekly instruction during team practices throughout the season. Additionally, they will have access to specialized goalie clinics and mini-camps. This marks an exciting and promising time for all our Frederick Freeze goaltenders.
