The 2018-19 hockey season is well underway in New England with fall midget hockey in high gear and the USPHL NCDC dropping the puck last weekend.
College coaches have been out in full force looking to stockpile their future rosters. Over the past month or so, college coaches in New England have viewed many of the region’s prospects at the Beantown Summer Classic, River Rats Jamboree, EHF Selects Preseason Showcase, Tier 1 Labor Day Face Off, ECC Labor Day Cup and the HPHL vs. Beast Series Showcase. These events have given coaches ample opportunity to look for uncommitted players who could fit into their programs in years to come.
With the advent of young recruiting, many of New England’s top 2001-born prospects have been committed for some time. However, that leaves the door ajar for programs who still have scholarship room available to jump on some late bloomers or players who might not have popped previously. There are several players in the region who fit that bill.
