Hawaii’s Zach Pamaylaon Is Part Of Danbury Hat Tricks’ FPHL Professional Hockey Championship


Aiea’s Zach Pamaylaon has played a bunch of hockey on many rinks in Hawaii, whether it’s the Ice Palace or the Kapolei Inline Hockey Arenas or at the outdoor venues in Mililani and Hawaii Kai.

Now he’s on top of the hockey world, so to speak, having helped the Danbury Hat Tricks to the Commissioner’s Cup championship of the Federal Prospects Hockey League. The FPHL is a Single-A minor professional league.

On Sunday, the Hat Tricks — who are based in Connecticut — clinched the title by winning a five-game series over the Carolina Thunderbirds with a 3-2 overtime victory. Interestingly enough, the Hat Tricks trailed in that series 2-0 before winning three straight.

On Saturday, in a 4-3 win over Carolina that tied the series at 2-2, Pamaylaon scored with 8:06 left in the game to give Danbury a 4-2 lead, and that goal was the eventual game-winner.

During the regular season, the Hat Tricks won the league’s Empire Division with a 44-7-5 record.

Of those 56 games, Pamaylaon, who is a 27-year-old forward, played in 46, scoring eight goals with 17 assists for 25 points. He also tied for second on the team with a plus-28 in plus-minus. That stat is the differential of goals scored by his team vs. the opponents while he was on the ice in even-strength situations.

In nine playoff games, Pamaylaon scored one goal with one assist.

A year ago, Pamaylaon finished his college career as the MVP of the Colonial States Hockey Conference while playing for Bryn Athyn (Pennsylvania), an American Collegiate Hockey Association Division II team.

Another Hawaii player, Lance Hamilton, recently finished his first season season in the FPHL with the Elmira Mammoth in New York. He scored a goal with five assists for six points in 20 games.
