There will be tons of talent on display this weekend at the Mass. Hockey Festival.
Seventy-seven Massachusetts-born players from the 2006 birth year will battle it out to make the Final 40 players at the New England Sports Center in Marlborough, Mass. Those who make that will fight for spots at USA Hockey's Select 17 Player Development Camp. The number of players to make it past the Final 40 is based on the rankings given to them by the talent evaluators.
While there are lots of great players at this event, these 15 players have a high chance of standing out. Some also have something to prove. It wasn't easy to pick since all of these players are good. They wouldn't be here if they weren't, so all of these players are standout prospects on their respective teams.
But only the best of the best will stand out this weekend.
Here are 15 players to keep an eye on at the festival.
