EXETER, N.H. — Many of the region’s top 2006-born prospects as well as some from outside of the region converged on the Rinks at Exeter from June 10-12 for the Eastern Exposure Hockey Group All-Star Weekend.
NHL scouts and college and prep coaches were on the bench for the two games each team competed in, plus helped with drills and small-area practices during the three-day event. Ryan Breen (New Jersey Devils), Josh Ciocco (Merrimack), Jared DeMichiel (UMass), John Gardner (Avon Old Farms), Connor Gorman (New Hampton), Tyler Helton (UConn), Jerry Keefe (Northeastern), Mike Levine (Vegas Golden Knights), Jon Lounsbury (Holy Cross), James Marcou (Harvard), Paul Pearl (Boston University) and Jason Smith (Brown) were the coaches for this age group.
The event was well-attended with a myriad of NHLPA agents scouring the rinks for tomorrow’s stars. Eastern Exposure Hockey Group, led by Matt Miles, did a great job of bringing together some top 2006 birth-year players for the viewing of agents, coaches and scouts.
