The 2018-19 New England Prep School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) hockey season is finally here.
It’s been nearly nine months since Kimball Union was crowned champion of the Stuart/Corkery Elite 8 Tournament for the second consecutive season. The Wildcats lost several key pieces from that team, including Montreal Canadiens draft pick Jordan Harris, who is now at Northeastern, and captain Andranik Armstrong, a UMass Lowell commit.
Salisbury, winners of three titles in a row from 2013 through 2015, is primed for another successful season. The Crimson Knights have 12 NCAA Division I commits on their roster, despite losing numerous committed players to graduation.
Led by Harvard commits and 2019 NHL Draft prospects John Farinacci and Derek Mullahy, another top contender is Dexter. Danny Donato’s team is certainly the team to beat among schools in the Bay State.
