The Springfield Jr. Blues are entering our 27th season of providing high caliber junior hockey to the Springfield area. In those 27 years we have seen nearly a thousand players come through the doors of The Nelson Center and represent the Jr. Blues in the community and beyond. Of those players, 145 have gone on to play professional hockey either in the USA or in Europe. Over 350+ players have moved on to NCAA hockey, either at the Division I level or at the Division III level. We are proud to have been the home to all of our Alumni whether it was for multiple seasons or a few months, thank you for all that you did for the organization and for the community.
