Haha, typical douceboardy response. If only it was so.
Where will BJE and Terriers fit in? Also behind Kings, Rats, SPA?
Which AYHL team is Huskies goalie moving to? My money would be on NJA, otherwise why make the move? It’s within driving distance from CT, will be one of the better U14 teams around, plays a national schedule, will likely advance to nationals from NJ/Eastern Penn District where they don’t have to go through MFF in New England District, etc. No doubt one more year of club hockey before he goes prep the following year.
A number of BJE moving to Rats with Islanders. BJE will still have a team, but unclear what it will look like. May have spots.
BJT has players moving to SSK, prep, HS, etc., and goalie is going U16. May have spots.
In FS U14, SSK and Rats likely to be top dogs in Mass, MFF and SPA in New England, Buffalo Sabres and NJA in NY/NJ. Some top 04 going U16.
What other AYHL team makes sense? If not NJ Avs, why leave Huskies for much further league games? Only makes sense to go for more national, T1EHL type schedule with a strong team. I’m sure someone in the know will chime in. Players from NJ and LI commute to MFF, and one used to commute from Boston. Goalies don’t have to go to every practice, most important for games, so easier for goalies to be on teams further away. In outlying areas compared to greater Boston, traveling long distances is much more common. Even though I did minor in geography, i’m not any good at it.
Last season the rats goalie was from Long Island and came up for games. Not a big deal. Good luck to the kid.
With what has gone on up there this past year, I would not rely much on what anyone is committed to. The program has been littered with empty promises and falling flat on commitments...
Late April, most programs completely set by now and solid players already committed.
BJE putting together a pretty strong HS team with some who played U14 last season, coached by Rivers coach
BJE U14 SS getting IHC forward going prep. They should be getting most of the local 04 going prep/HS, so should be a solid team.
IS it better to be a 3rd liner on a U16 team or a 1st liner on a U14 team?
Asking for a friend....
Heard another Top Forward going to BJE
Where did he play last season?
Heard the same thing in Chicago last week
So... 2 BJE U14, 1 BJE Goalie, 2 Caps, 1 Islanders, 1 new mystery... who else
You guys are just dying to name names. Is 14 old enough to just post the d@mn roster? Seacoast seems to think so. All of the national-bound teams' rosters must be set by now, so it should no longer be rumor.
And no goalie
SPA has a goalie, although don’t know anything about him. Many good teams this past season did not have strong goalies. There were some not so strong teams with really good goalies.
SPA has a team with a full roster. TG does not and is still reaching out to players. Maybe TG can get some players from their half season or Tier 1 team? Oh crap they don't have a half season or Tier 1 team.
I'm sure the Govs Academy AD will be thrilled to hear that the new coach hired to turn around the worst ISL hockey program is "all in" on a FS U14 team at TG. BTW I am so sorry your kid plays for Top Gun.
