Re: Walpole

Yup. Rumor has it he's going to top junior program next year as the starting goalie.

What do mean top? Like local Jr Bruins? Islanders? Will be a big jump! I am sure after he adjusts he will do fine. These spots are not easy to get as he will be competing with many goalies who have been playing at a much higher level.

Much higher level? It's Tier III, checkbook please!

So the IHC Premiere team started out with three goalies; 1 committed d1, another d3 and the third one was All New England the prior year at Loomis Chaffee, and he did not last. Jr Bruins have two former stand out prep goalies. One commited as a prefered walk on at Notre Dame and the other commited to Brown with another year of jr eligibility left. SS Kings have a former Avon old farms goalie who spent part of the season in the USHL and is a D1 commit. Sure the Walpole kid will do well but not really sure how much of a guarantee he will have at a Tier 3 club, nevermind a top league.
