Joe grew up in Plymouth, Minnesota, playing youth hockey for the Osseo-Maple Grove Hockey Association. His Peewee A team was the state champion in 1994-1995, and his Bantam A team took state in 1996-1997 before finishing runner-up to Compuware at nationals in Boston, Massachusetts.
Joe played for the Minnesota Blades AAA team in the summers and later played junior hockey for the Sioux Falls Stampede in the USHL. There, he was co-captain with future NHL All-Star Thomas Vanek and made the USHL All-Star Game and Viking Cup team. After juniors, Joe attended St. Cloud State University, where he was a three-time All-Academic Team winner for the Huskies. He earned a degree in marketing before turning pro.
After being drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins, Joe signed a two-year deal. During his first year pro he was named to the All-Star Game in the ECHL and won the Fastest Skater Award. He was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes halfway through his second year, where he played six games with the Hurricanes — scoring a game-winning goal in his third game. Later, he moved overseas and played for the Brunico Wolves in the Italian Serie A and led the league in goals before ending his career in England. He was a coach for the Eden Prairie Bantam AA team during the 2013-2014 season and the 2003 Minnesota Blades. He has a passion for coaching, training and mentoring hockey players in the area.
Billy grew up in Circle Pines, Minnesota, and played youth hockey for Centennial. His 1996 Bantam team was the first Centennial team at any level to earn a berth in a state tournament. He went on to attend Academy of Holy Angels from 1997-2000, where he remains the all-time leading goal scorer with 106 career goals. His 1999 Holy Angels team was the first from the school to play in the AA State tournament.
After high school, Billy played for the Lincoln Stars teams of 2000-2002 that claimed back-to-back USHL Anderson Cup Championships. Collegiately, Billy played with Joe Jensen at St. Cloud State University from 2002-2006 and they created a formidable line that led SCSU to 22 wins in 2006 and a Final Five championship appearance. After college, Billy joined the Holy Angels Boys Varsity staff as an assistant from 2006-2011.
Billy also served as head coach for the Holy Angels boys hockey team, Eden Prairie Bantam AA, and the 2003 Minnesota Blades. He has a passion for teaching scoring concepts, using video as a tool for young players, and being on the ice with the boys.
Director of Girls Hockey Paige Jahnke joined Gentry Academy in December 2018. Born and raised in Maplewood, Minnesota, Paige began her hockey career playing for Roseville High School. From 2008 to 2011, the teams Paige played on compiled a 76-11 record, winning the 2009 Minnesota State Championship along the way. Additionally, Paige played for the Minnesota Junior Whitecaps during the summer club seasons of 2010 and 2011, and played fall hockey for the Upper Midwest Fall Elite League, where she guided her team to the 2010 league championship and was a finalist for USA Hockey Advanced 15, 16, and 17.

Amanda, a Kingston, Ontario, native, is excited to share her passion for the game of hockey with the Galaxy association. Amanda currently plays professionally for the Buffalo Beauts of the National Women's Hockey League, the reigning Isobel Cup Champions!
Amanda played five consecutive years in AAA Boys hockey from 2006-2010, including the Minor Midget Showcase year in 2009-2010. In the years prior, she was affiliated to the older Greater Kingston AAA teams (Minor Bantam, Major Bantam, Minor Midget and Major Midget).
Amanda was invited to three Junior A Prospect Camps (men 16-21). She accepted the invitation from the Nepean Raiders of the Canadian Junior Hockey League, and was the first woman to participate in a Raiders Prospect camp. There, she didn’t allow a goal in six appearances. She was awarded an invitation to the Raiders Main Camp even though she had already committed to Luke Richardson to play in Ottawa with his Lady Senators team in The Provincial Women's Hockey League (PWHL). Leveille participated in the Main Camp and only allowed a goal after eight appearances.
In high school, Amanda was named the top goaltender at the 2011 Canadian National Under-18 Championship, where she was also named the MVP of the championship game after leading her team to the national title.
Amanda went on to star at the University of Minnesota, where she helped the Golden Gophers to win NCAA Tournament Championships in 2013, 2015 and 2016. In her 116 games with the U of M, she had a fantastic .947 save percentage and a 1.18 goals allowed average. She earned All-USCHO Second Team honors, was named to the WCHA All-Academic Team, was an Academic All-Big Ten honoree, and was named to the NCAA Frozen Four All-Tournament Team.
When Meaghan Pezon was growing up, the only way she could have spent more time on the ice is if she had lived on it. As it was, her backyard was already a rink. By high school, Meaghan's prowess on the ice was solidified — as a senior at Eden Prairie High School, she led her team to an undefeated season, and its first state championship.
She played with the St. Cloud State University Huskies for four years, where her decisive skating and dominant delivery as forward helped the fledgling program develop into a serious division contender. During her senior year, the Huskies were third in the WCHA, which was the first time a team other than the University of Minnesota, University of Wisconsin or University of Minnesota-Duluth finished that high in the standings. Additionally, Meaghan was named the Offensive Player of the Week by US College Hockey Online in both 2006 and 2007.
Meaghan was a member of the 2011 Minnesota Whitecaps WWHL championship team and continues to play professional hockey with them.
