The U16 Bruins beat St. Mark’s? Did they play the JV team?
Also, any update on how the Nobles vs Thayer game went
Sounds like someone is realizing Prep hockey ain’t all that any more.
Great coach, but St. Mark’s isn’t a perennial Super 8 program.
Attempted to watch Thayer vs Nobles on YouTube but it made me sad. Amazing how missing the big name players can make the hockey so very bad. Prep is going to stink this year with 90% of the better players staying put where they are in USHL, NAHL, USPHL. They are getting great experience with JR hockey, not locked down on campus and can still do school online. I don’t see a downside other than prep hockey needing to reinvent itself over the next few years. Big name hockey programs like Avon, Salisbury and Cushing will be folding for the year, announcement right after the new year. Not good.
Sucks not being able to afford prep
Its does, but what a waste of money to play lower level hockey
So where are you supposed to play as a 16/17 year old kid? Prep is bad, FS is bad.. those are the options.
At this point it is what it is. If some of these prep schools cancel after the first of the year, the kids that are already affiliated with a JR team will hook on to them but you aren't going to see a mass exodus of more kids leaving. There aren't many more spots to take on decent teams.
My son's coach is confident they are going to be playing games after the 1st of the year - I only hope he is telling the truth!
Its SUPPOSE to be about academics and not hockey, but tell that to the ones that are leaving prep for the USHL, NAHL, BCHL, OHL, NCDC et.
Will be surprised if the better prep players go to FLA...most preps are doing something for a season
Every level and league has become two lines deep if that. It’s everywhere you look.
