Interesting to see which schools/programs have kids going to national camp from Mass:
Belmont hill 1
St. Marks 1
Jr. Bruins 1
I suppose you could say the 2 Cushing kids should be under jr. bruins since they moved their for the season due to covid.
Some new names from u15 camp, overall looks like these schools/programs do a good job developing talent.
7 out of 12 are U16 Junior Eagles, 1 U16 junior Bruins, 2 Springfield Rifles, 2 U15 River Rats
Belmont Hill 1
Milton Academy 1
Pope Francis 2
BC High 1
Common thread is 8 of the 12 played up an age group last year.
The one public school kid is going to prep next year.
Several kids are former CC transfers info prep.
You mean the u14 / 06 kid? He will be u15 next season. OP wrote about 04, response was about 05.
Simple list of who played where, not who is best.
Not completely surprised at the selections. Some of the “ names” we have been hearing about since Mites just simply have not proven themselves. Some found themselves in spots where they had to earn a spot at a new school or team and were not able to earn it based on what they did in mites. Not surprising
Still don’t understand the back door deals comment. 04 list looks legit, not sure who would replace selected kids. Congrats to all of them.
Educate us please.
A “back door deal” is what happened when a dad believes with all his heart that his bendy should be on the team even though he got cut, or perhaps never even got a look. Player selections have nothing to do with talent when your kid doesn’t make the team.
So if I believe my kid should be selected for natty camp but he’s not good enough to make it how do I get a group college coaches and NHL scouts to pick him? Just bring them wheelbarrows of cash? Take them each to a nice steakhouse, round of golf?
Sponsor a coach's team in a scramble or something more memorable than just one round of golf.
USA Hockey at large bids went out. Few more Mass kids to add to the list.
Where’s the list?
At least 2 goalies were given USA hockey bids. Cushing and BK
