Everyone knew the scouts were there for the big senior defensemen. Maybe the best defensemen in high school hockey at the time. And to see the assistant coach get named something like 'Assitant Coach of the Decade' made me laugh. Guy has taken too many pucks to the head.
Next step is either junior or prep hockey, not just prep.
I beleive it....too many pucks to the head!
The Hingham coaches are **** clowns. They would rather have a kid's skill diminish playing JV as a Freshman vs. a good full season club team. Morons hurting their own talent pool.
Then don’t fall for it. Play where a kid develops vs with the high school heros
Unless the kid's goal isn't to play college hockey. Stay at the high school (unless the team is terrible or the coaches are jerks) and enjoy. Develop if the goal is to keep going!
You just described 95% if HS’s
"Junior scouts from the USHL arent going to Reading or south shore team games."
They do when there is a kid or two they're interested in or as a favor to someone. I remember one high school game I was at and there were 3-4 USHL guys there to see the kid of a hockey east assistant coach. The kid kind of blew but they were there.
