HENNIKER - The kids with the Henniker Youth Hockey Association have been excited for months for Monday's practice.
They got to do drills just like the Boston Bruins.
"I got too excited that I couldn't really tell anyone," said Jeffrey Iryzarry, a 9-year-old participant. "I tried to get here as fast as I could to meet the Bruins players."
HYHA was chosen as one of only 10 organizations across New England to have a free clinic sponsored by the NHL team.
"Some edge work, passing, having some fun," said Tommy Soungin, a former Bruin, of the drills.
Fifty boys and girls from the area - all under the age of 12 - were coached trough drills by a staff of special coaches.
"I learned to never give up, never stop skating and always get your passes right," said Iryzarry.
Every kid at the clinic at Lee Clement arena went home with new skills, a special clinic jersey, T-Shirt and puck. Plus, the youth hockey organization got $1,000 that they plan to use toward lowering their program tuition and expand hockey in the area.
