My name is Joe Nihill and I am the manager at Pure Hockey in Kingston, MA. My career at Pure Hockey began back in November of 2008 when I was hired as the assistant manager here in Kingston, MA. I held that position until August of 2010, when I was named store manager. I was born and raised in Marshfield, MA and currently reside there today. I graduated from Marshfield High School in 1999 and continued my education by receiving my Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology from Bridgewater State College. Sports of all kinds have always played an instrumental role in my life. Growing up it was first soccer, baseball and football that I excelled at. Hockey was the sport that I always loved the most, but many of my early hockey days took place on the frozen bogs and ponds in the area. I continued my football and baseball playing days through high school and I continue to play baseball in various men’s leagues to this day. It wasn’t until college that my desire and passion for hockey finally took over. Initially I played men’s roller hockey, but in the fall of 2007 my ice hockey playing days officially began again. It was at that time that I got back in the game, and I haven’t looked back since.
