The Bay State Breakers are a Tier III junior ice hockey organization in the United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL). The organization plays home games at The Bog Ice Arena in Kingston, Massachusetts.

The Breakers organization currently fields a team in the USPHL's Elite Division, as well as boys' and girls' youth teams at all different levels.

History[edit]

The Bay State Breakers formerly had a team in the USPHL Premier Division. The Premier team was originally a Tier III Junior A team in the Eastern Junior Hockey League (EJHL) where it played from 1999 until the league's dissolution in 2013. The EJHL Breakers qualified for the 2007 USA Hockey Tier III Junior A National Championships for being the runner-up in the 2006–07 season. They would eventually lose in the Championship game to the EJHL Champions, New Hampshire Junior Monarchs.[1]

While in the EJHL, the Breakers' organization also fielded Junior B teams in the Empire Junior Hockey League (EmJHL) and the Eastern States Hockey League (ESHL) which joined the USPHL in the Empire and Elite Divisions, respectively. In 2015, the Premier team was sold to the ownership of the Syracuse Stars organization.[2] The Breakers would also drop their Empire Division team and now only field one Tier III team in the USPHL Elite Division.
