Lynn Youth Hockey is also in final discussions with Hockey Boucherville in Canada on growing their Cultural Exchange Program to 6 teams this year. This is a program in which the players and parents travel by bus to Boucherville, Quebec Canada and take part in a Challenge Cup. The players will stay with a visiting family and player in understanding their culture and way of life. Hockey Boucherville would return back to Lynn in April of 2010 this year. All the logistics are being worked out ond dates, how many teams, what teams, etc. It was a huge success last year with the kids having the time of their lifes with their northern friends from Canada. Most familes have kept up their communications with parents and players throughout the summer. The players from Lynn who traveled last year to Boucherville were treated to a visit of the Belle Center were the Canadians play along with a first class function on Friday night that had Stephan Quintal former Bruin and Canadian player address both groups of kids. When the Boucherville players traveled to Lynn they were treated with a police escort to a first class event at St. Mary’s High School. Then on Sunday both teams had former Boston Bruins great Rick Middleton come down and run the shootout and take pictures with the teams.
