The NJ Renegades Affiliate with The Philadelphia Hockey Club (EHL)

The Philadelphia Hockey Club, proud members of the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), is pleased to announce an affiliation with the New Jersey Renegades of the Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP). The announcement was made jointly with PHC’s Head Coach and General Manager Adam Bartholomay and his Renegades counterpart Cliff Graziano.

“I am thrilled to announce that PHC has decided to have an affiliate relationship with the Renegades” stated Bartholomay. We believe there are a lot of strong players in the Renegades program and this is a logical path to the next level from the EHLP to the EHL and then ultimately procuring an NCAA commitment.”

“With a strong working relationship with the Renegades, the objective is to identify and advance players from their program to PHC. It will prove to be a great pipeline for a Renegades player to get into our PHC program. The Renegades have a strong owner in Cliff Graziano, and today he has shown his commitment and care of advancing players to a proven program in PHC by entering into this affiliation relationship” added Bartholomay.

"I'm excited to affiliate with The Philadelphia Hockey Club's EHL Team and Head Coach Adam Bartholomay” said Graziano. “Bart and I share the same philosophy towards the development of players and we will be assisting each other in scouting for each other's programs as well. I look forward to working with him in a collective effort for our teams and all our players" concluded Graziano.

The PHC EHL team just finished its second year in the league. During that time, PHC has advanced eight players onto NCAA college commitments.  PHC plays its home games at the Hollydell Ice Arena in Sewell, NJ.

The Renegades just finished their seventh season in the EHLP, and have been a junior team going into their 17th season starting off in the old Met League since 2008-2009. The Renegades play their home games at the SportsCare Arena in Randolph, NJ.

Rens Mourn the loss of our hall of fame coach & friend

Our brother and fellow Renegades Alumni Coach Chris Ceransky passed away on Friday March 4th, 2022. It is a sad, sad day! The last 24 hours have been heartbreaking for all of us concerned for Chris and his family.

To his wife Sam Ceransky & Chris’s parents and extended family, we are all here for you. Please reach out if you need anything!

Topher Ceransky was like a little brother to me. He started coaching in our youth program then on to our Renegades Jr team. We coached together for many, many years with the Renegades, Turcotte Stickhandling, Team MD, and many other clinics, camps and lessons. He exemplified everything we wanted in a Renegades coach, but more importantly he was a true friend.

I, along with the many players he coached, coaches he coached with, and parents that reached out in the last 24 hours was an amazing support of our hockey family that Chris helped us build. He will be missed by everyone that knew him. I love you brother. He is and always will be a Renegade, and part of of our family.

Cliff Graziano Jr.

BILLET FAMILIES NEEDED

What is a Renegades Billet family?  

It's a host family that takes in a Jr player in the age range of 16-20 years old, that needs a place to live for the 6 month Jr team season.  

Billeted players assist with chores around the house, help your kids with their homework and their sports endeavors!

Any family that billets will get discounts on lessons, clinics, etc... please make sure to ask Coach Graz!

We ask for "Billet Families" to provide a clean, safe, family-friendly environment for our players, and in return, billet families receive a monthly stipend to cover food expenses for the players.

If you are interested in learning more about being one of our Billet Families, please reach out to Cliff Graziano at cgraz16@ptd.net as soon as possible!

We are in need of a few more "billet," families for the upcoming season so if you are interested please let us know ASAP!

Thank you for your consideration to help further our players' futures and to build these life long relationships!
