The New York Apple Core is a Junior A ice hockey team from Brewster, New York playing in the Eastern Hockey League. The team plays home games at the Brewster Ice Arena. The Apple Core spent many years in Long Island before re-locating to Brewster at the start of the 2011-12 season.

The Apple Core organization also fields a team in the Metropolitan Junior Hockey League, as well as youth hockey select teams at the Bantam, Peewee, and Squirt and other various levels.

History[edit]

The franchise was a full-time member of the Eastern Junior Hockey League (EJHL) from 1998 - 2013. The team was originally formed in 1993 in the Jr. B Metro League. In 1997-98 it played a handful of games against the EJHL, and became a full-time member a year later. In 2003 Apple Core won the Triple Crown EJHL Championship, finishing as regular season and post-season champions. In 2013, the various junior hockey leagues in the north east went through a re-organization, which included the Apple Core joining the Atlantic Junior Hockey League. The Atlantic Junior Hockey League then re-branded itself as the Eastern Hockey League.

Alumni[edit]

Apple Core has produced a number of alumni playing in higher levels of junior hockey, NCAA Division I and Division III, and ACHA college programs, and professional hockey, including:

In 2005, the Apple Core became the first junior team to be represented by all four competing schools in the Beanpot hockey tournament. Representing Apple Core were Kevin Schaeffer and Jekabs Redlihs of Boston University, Mike Brennan of Boston College, Jon Pelle and Bill Keenan of Harvard University, and Louie Liotti and Steve Birnstill of Northeastern University.
