How do higher end high school teams or preps deal with kids who dont produce on the scoreboard? I see alot of games with less than 4 goals scored per game. Are the kids who dont produce on the score sheet typically replaced year to year? I get that teams usually only play only 2 lines but what happens to all the other kids? Son is going into 9th next year and trying to understand the landscape.
It really has nothing to do with higher end HS or prep teams. The teams coach should be playing the players that put the team in the best position to be successful. If your son is fulfilling his role, whatever that may be, he will be valued by his coach. A good team/coach needs goal scorers, penalty killers, defensive Centers, solid D, etc.. good teams need them all.The truth of the matter is that teams don't win because everyone scores 30 goals each, they win because they play as a team.
