Although high school hockey in Massachusetts is not what it used to be, there are still a handful of underclassmen in the MIAA with the potential to play college hockey down the road.
Just last month, Albany Academy PG Andrius Kulbis-Marino committed to Sacred Heart after playing four seasons at Lowell Catholic. The Methuen, Mass., native is an exceptional skater who helped the Crusaders to the MIAA Division 2 State Championship in 2017.
Just last season, three underclassmen committed to playing for Hockey East teams after playing two seasons in the MIAA: St. John’s Prep’s Brian Carrabes (Boston University), Malden Catholic’s Riley Duran (Providence), and St. John’s Prep’s David Sacco (New Hampshire).
There don’t appear to be any players the caliber of Carrabes, Duran or Sacco in the MIAA this season, but there are a few underclassmen who could certainly end up playing in Hockey East someday.
