I laugh about the clamoring for prep hockey. Go for the school, not the hockey.

A defensemen on my son's public D-I team would dominate in Bantam & Midget tournaments against prep players and few even noticed. Conversely another kid on the team h.s. team who was god awful, surprised they even let him play and he moved onto prep and was on the first pairing defensively. On average it might be better but each player has their own limitations. Prep isn't all that.



Actually, it is much, much better but I agree with you many of the players are interchangable


So How would these teams
1 Boston College HS 20-5-3 95.51 2.07 93.44
2 Malden Catholic HS 19-6-1 94.92 1.42 93.50
3 Arlington HS 24-2-2 94.82 2.57 92.25
4 Pope Francis HS 15-5-1 94.77 1.95 92.81
5 Catholic Memorial HS 15-6-2 94.41 1.13 93.28
6 Austin Prep 17-4-4 94.41 2.24 92.17
7 St Johns Prep 11-9-1 94.27 0.95 93.32
8 Hingham HS 14-9-1 94.12 0.54 93.58
9 Walpole HS 22-2-1 94.07 3.24 90.83
10 Central Catholic HS 16-6-3 93.96 1.56 92.40

DO against these teams:
1 Kimball Union Academy 32-5-2 98.55 2.46 96.09
2 Dexter School 25-4-3 98.11 2.06 96.05
3 Avon Old Farms 19-6-3 98.08 1.46 96.62
4 Rivers School 25-6-1 97.97 2.34 95.63
5 Phillips Academy Exeter 24-7-1 97.97 2.03 95.94
6 Salisbury School 20-8-2 97.91 1.60 96.31
7 Loomis Chaffee 15-9-1 97.89 1.32 96.57
8 Thayer Academy 20-10-0 97.89 1.40 96.49
9 Lawrence Academy 21-5-1 97.73 1.59 96.14
10 Winchendon School 17-11-2 97.55 1.63 95.91

Would it be close in a 3 game series or No? Which hockey is stronger?


Trade the goalies and play just the top two lines and there would be no difference. Problem is the preps take the better goalies and have more depth, that's all. But thanks for all of the absolutely worthless stats.





You are delusional. The top 10 MIAA teams would get spanked by 5+ goals vs any of the prep teams you listed. The best CC players leave for prep. Case in point a stud CC left his school last year where he tore up the CC and averaged 2.35pts per game to a prep where he went on to average 1.06pts per game a year older. The jump is immense.

It is a good jump for sure and it is certainly better hockey but outside of the top half of prep is not that big of a jump.

Look at how Delbarton did against Prep Schools and then against CC. Yes, even the lower preps are deeper and may have a stud but there is not that much difference. This coming from a huge Prep School fan

Trade goalies? Top 2 lines vs each other? Seriously? You need to come watch some prep hockey before you make stupid statements like that..If you have to trade goalies to make it competitive then Prep is obviously better, CC/D1 schools would have a better chance with 3rd and 4th lines against each other, not top 2.

Not a single D1 commit in all of MIAA hockey this past season. Most higher-end Prep teams had at least one, many had several.

Re: Discovered at PrePrep Showcase

I'm not a Mensa Association guy but my guess is it's because the top MIAA kids either do a P.G. year at a prep or move on to a junior team. And the minute they commit the discussion from the college coaches is moving along...for all of them.
