Re: High School/Catholic/Prep Tryouts

Could be right that it was only forwards but there seemed to be a lot of frosh pulled up this year. Usually it’s 1-2, not 4-5. They took no new sophomores and I think only 2-3 off last year’s JV team. Anyway, whoever the kids are who did not make it as a freshman, just train hard over the next year and try out again (or you could stop playing I guess but that’s no fun!)

Re: High School/Catholic/Prep Tryouts

The freshmen that made it ALL PLAYED for coach on Cyclones. TOTALLY WRONG!!!!!!!! Somebody say something. Ancient AD at the Prep won't care.

Re: High School/Catholic/Prep Tryouts

Easier to hide a kid on the third forth line as a wing than a defensemen.

By chance, does anyone know the birth year of the freshman that made it from the Cyclones coach?

Re: High School/Catholic/Prep Tryouts

I hope you’re not under the illusion that SJP hockey (especially Freshman & Varsity) is merit-based. (And no, my kid didn’t get cut). Dir Player development for Wings is SJP asst coach so Wings kids get taken as freshman (along w/SJP middle school kids). Same w/Cyclones coach. And a ton of people keep kids back so there may actually be an ‘01 as a freshman. Crazy, but every year there’s a freshman W/ a driver’s license and full beard. Meanwhile there’s a sophomore who was clearly slated to go V but got sent back to JV to accommodate freshman (again, NOT my kid).

Re: High School/Catholic/Prep Tryouts

There were 6 freshmen at SJP that made varsity. 3 forwards, 2 defenseman and 1 goalie. 5 of those kids played for the Cyclones. The son of assistant coach of the Cyclones is the goalie and he is an "04. SJP lost a bunch of kids so it looks like they went young to fill those spots.

All six freshmen are 2004s. No repeaters.

Didn't realize there were any high end 04's on the Cyclones. Where do they play out of

Re: High School/Catholic/Prep Tryouts

Stop it. Coach of the Cyclones is HC of New Hampton School. Others just helped out.

Re: High School/Catholic/Prep Tryouts

Looking at my hockey rankings for what it's worth. Cyclones were 3rd in New England (sans Mass) behind MFR and SPA. If they were in MA, they'd be 5th behind SSK, RR, ECW and BA. They beat RR 2 out of 3 and lost to both SPA and BA. Saw them win the prep cup with three shutouts games in the playoffs. Some kids can play...looks like SJP got a few of them.

Re: High School/Catholic/Prep Tryouts

Head Coach of New Hampton used to be involved with Avalanche but his kids are out of youth hockey now and so is he.

Correct. Now he is Split Season Director for the Cyclones organization and put together a pretty decent U14 team.

Re: High School/Catholic/Prep Tryouts

You are incorrect.

Assistant Cyclones Coach is Assistant SJP coach (goalie and Brother in law to another Assistant coach) took his goalie son and his friends, a couple of sophomores equal or better (and no my kid did not get cut).

Varsity players are angry and Frosh coach is angry. So yes it matters, how did it work out for them playing Hingham today-laughable. Two of the frosh forwards have stone feet....
5 freshman players from one team, guess players should not go to SJP with any thought of a fair tryout.

Re: High School/Catholic/Prep Tryouts

Look at the bright side...

You're spending $25K for a great education at SJP. Your kids are just not going to play hockey there. Sorry, but friends and family is alive and well at the high school level too!
