The dawn of the 2019-20 New England Prep School Athletic Counsel (NEPSAC) hockey season means it’s time for New England Hockey Journal’s preseason awards and All-Star teams.
Unlike the official NEPSAC year-end All-Star teams, I don’t break it down into east and west. Below will be my Preseason Player of the Year, Preseason Rookie of the Year, Preseason All-Prep first and second teams and a Preseason Prep All-Rookie Team.
Please note in formulating these preseason accolades, I have taken this season into the utmost consideration.
I’ve tried to narrow this down to what players I believe will perform best this season, as opposed to many of my lists that look to project future potential.
