Oakhurst is once again teaming up with the UMaine Black Bears and UNH Wildcats Men’s Hockey teams to offer a unique experience for young hockey players across the two states. It’s an exciting program we started last year called The Oakie’s Corner Experience. What is it and how can your young player participate?
Here’s How The Oakie’s Corner Experience Works
Oakhurst will select a youth team to be its guest at seven (7) UNH and seven (7) UMaine Hockey home games (see below schedule for games). Each youth team will receive 20 free tickets, special Oakie’s Corner seating in each of the arenas, a visit from Oakie, an opportunity to engage with the University hockey teams, special recognition and gifts the night of the game. Sounds fun, right?
It’s Easy to Become the Oakie’s Corner Experience Team
- Enter at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Tell us the name of your team, your town, age and provide a person to contact (email and phone)
- List the top 2 games your team would like to attend
- Winning teams selected on a first-come first serve basis and notified at the beginning of the University hockey season
- Eligible teams must not have players in 8th grade or above, therefore we are looking for teams in Mite, Squirt and Peewee age groups ONLY
Transportation to and from the game is not provided. Any souvenirs or food items purchased at the arenas will be the responsibility of the teams.

Refuel with Oakhurst Lowfat Chocolate Milk After Exercise
Aspire. Most kids who hit the ice every week or participate in any other sport want to achieve a certain goal
Perspire. And they work hard trying to achieve their goals
Restore. We want coaches, parents and all the athletes out there to take care of their bodies during their sports seasons. One simple way is to drink 16 ounces of low-fat chocolate milk within one hour of training and games in order to refuel.
Research suggests low-fat chocolate milk is superior to drinks like Gatorade for muscle recovery after tough training sessions, workouts and games because it has the right mix of proteins and carbohydrates, which have been shown to refuel and rebuild exhausted muscles, better after heavy exercise. And chocolate milk is great for rehydrating – it’s a delicious, nutrient-laden liquid that will help replace lost fluids after exercise due to sweating.
