Nassau Lions and NJ Rockets Honor the Memory of Nico Mallozzi
The Nassau County U10 Lions and New Jersey Rockets held a moment of silence prior to their recent game at Cantiague Park in Hicksville to honor the memory of 10-year-old Nico Mallozzi, who tragically passed away last weekend due to complications from the Flu Strain B. Players and coaches held up Nico’s number seven to honor his memory. The local hockey community has rallied around the Mallozzi family, with a GoFundMe page that has raised in excess of $165,000 to date for the Nico Mallozzi Memorial Fund.
CT Travel Player Passes Away After Contracting the Flu
Health officials have confirmed that 10-year-old Nico Mallozzi, a player with the 2007 Connecticut Rough Riders travel hockey program participating this past weekend in a tournament in Buffalo, died after contracting a dangerous strain of the flu, Flu Strain B, developing complications from pneumonia that led to sepsis and Nico’s death. Flu Strain B, a more mild form of the Flu Strain A, is characterized by symptoms including an upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. It can also lead to breathing complications which could result in pneumonia and fluid accumulation in the lungs, as well as Encephalitis or swelling of the brain.
A player from Suffolk PAL program has also tested positive for the Flu Strain B, and another PAL player grew sick with a stomach bug that could be the start of the flu. It is being strongly cautioned that if your child is showing any signs or symptoms similar in nature, please bring them to your physician immediately.
Through hockey and at the rink, our children and players come into contact with many teams and families from all over the East Coast, thus leading to the potential spread of all types of illness and various strains of the flu.
In an effort to curtail the spread any type of flu or sickness, please use the following precautions:
Do not attend practices or games if you know you are sick. Wait until you have been without a fever for at least 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication).
Frequent and thorough hand washing is a must. Wash your hands frequently using antibacterial soap or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
There should be no sharing of water bottles during practices or games. Each player should furnish their own water bottles and drinks.
Gloves should remain on at the end of games on the handshake line.
Please contact your physician and coach should your child exhibit any of the above symptoms.

Three Nassau County Teams Capture Titles Over MLK Weekend
The Nassau County Lions’ trophy case at Cantiague Park will become a bit more crowded after this weekend, as three of the program’s teams hit the road for the Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend and were crowned champions.
The U10 Squirt Majors (pictured above) had a successful weekend in West Chester, Pa., capturing the Gold Medal by defeating the Jersey Shore Wolves in the finals of the 2018 Liberty Cup, 4-1. The trip to the finals was not an easy road, as the Lions rebounded from a 2-0 deficit in the semifinals to defeat the Ridgefield Lions, a team the Lions had lost to 6-2 in the preliminary round.
Up in Stamford, Conn., the Nassau U11 Lions (pictured above) enjoyed a very successful run at the 2018 MLK Weekend Winter Showdown, going a perfect 5-0 over the three day weekend en route to capturing the championship over the Providence Junior Friars. The Lions dominated the field, outscoring the opposition 43-0 over the five-game span, led by the goaltending tandem of Cameron Sher and TJ Ulmschneider who split five shutouts.
Also in West Chester, Pa. at the Liberty Cup, the Nassau County U13 Lions (pictured above) captured the championship in their division, defeating the West Chester Quakers 2-1 in the finals. In the preliminary round, the Lions played the Quakers to a 1-1 tie. In the finals, with the score knotted up at 1-1 going into the third period, Robbie Franscisi snapped the deadlock with just over four minutes remaining, as goaltender Michael Sykora stopped a breakaway two minutes remaining to seal the victory for the Lions and give them the championship.
