About The Protec Jr Ducks

Who We Are

Protec Jr Ducks

The Protec Jr Ducks Junior Hockey Club was purchased in 2020 by Pascal Magnollay. The club purchased the pre-existing (EHL) Philadelphia Jr Flyers, whom were league champions in 2017. The program was brought to central New Jersey to provide a home for ambitious hockey players from across the country, with the goal of being successful scholar athletes in college.

The Jr Ducks also field teams at the U18 and U16 levels.
