Nadav Emenecker, Igloo Jaguars
Emenecker just needed three games to hit double-digits in points. With nine goals and six assists on the weekend, Emenecker helped the Jaguars to a solid three-win weekend in their first slate of games in the AHF.
Anthony Kulp, Team Philadelphia Orange
With four multi-points games, Kulp made his presence known at the Showcase with six goals and five assists in four games. With his balanced attack and knowing when to shoot and when to pass, Kulp helped the Orange Team Philadelphia to a perfect weekend.
Logan Doyle, Grundy Senators
With seven points in four games, Doyle was a key part in the Senators’ undefeated weekend. Scoring four goals on Friday to set the tone, Doyle finished with six goals and an assist during the Showcase.
Jason Sassano, Jersey Shore Wildcats Black
In only three games, Sassano was able to pot three goals and register eight points for the Wildcats during the Showcase. His stickhandling ability and vision to set-up his teammates helped the Wildcats take two of three on the weekend.
Nicholas Denadai, Team Philadelphia White
Denadai had six goals in only four games for Team Philadelphia and led the way during their three win weekend. Denadai didn’t hold back when it came to the shooting aspect of the game, while also registering a hat-trick on Sunday’s morning match-up.
Sean Stevenson, Team Philadelphia Black
While he registered five points (1g, 4a) in his last two games of the Showcase, Stevenson helped lead the Philadelphia defense to a defensive showcase. Stevenson and the rest of Team Philadelphia’s defense held the opposition to two goals in four games and only 52 shots on goals in all four games (13 shots against per game).
Jake Chromcik, North Jersey Bandits
With four goals and five points in this Showcase, Chromcik stood out offensively– and not just from his 6’2 frame. The left-handed shot defender not only was stellar with the puck, but was able to use his size to keep the opposition to the outside and limiting key chances against the Bandits.
Aidan Holycross, St. James (Showcase)
In two games of action, Holycross faced 47 total shots and only let two behind him. With a GAA of 1.00 and a save percentage of .957, Holycross helped St. James with two of their three wins of the Showcase.
Shane Brannick, Atlantic City Sharks
Brannick faced plenty of pucks this weekend, stopping 112 of 118 shots in just over three games this weekend with a stat line of 1.80 GAA and a .949 save percentage. Helping the Sharks to three wins on the weekend, Brannick also assisted on the game-winning goal in the team’s last game of the Showcase.
North Jersey Aspen Kings Grey: Being in the top-three of the standings, North Jersey showed plenty of teamwork with 10 players having at least a point this season. Landon Brookes (17g, 2a), Dylan Branigan (8g, 7a), and Brady Shetler (6g, 6a) are all in double-digits for points, while goalie Jackson Maloney has six wins on the season in his seven starts. With a balanced attack and everyone on the team contributing, the Aspen Kings Grey squad should be prepared for a solid showing this weekend.
Montgomery Youth Hockey Blue: With three straight wins in AHF play, Montgomery is riding a solid wave of success. While Jacob Guzman and Eric Myers have produced goals up-front, John Jacobs and Larry Du have provided just as much from the blue line. All four have four or more goals this season, while also helping limit the shots on net in their defensive end. In this three-game win streak, Montgomery has outpaced their opponents by a score of 15-4, which should help them going into the Showcase weekend.
North Jersey Bandits Red: The Bandits Red team offers a good look at variety in their team. While only playing four games, 13 players have scored at least one goal, and 10 players have scored multiple goals. Conor Madigan and Raffaele Macchiavello lead the way with five goals a piece, as goalie Matt Cook has a 2.75 GAA in his four games. The Bandits should give teams fits with their ability to produce offense up and down the bench, as well as be responsible in their own end to keep the puck out.
Tomorrow’s Ice North Stars White: With five straight wins, the North Stars White crew come into the showcase with plenty of confidence. Connor Derenick leads the way with 17 goals, but the team has been able to spread out the scoring with 10 other players having a goal in the team’s six games of AHF competition. Lukas Elek and Tomas Ancinec have been swapping roles in goal to success, while also being able to skate out when they aren’t suited up between the pipes.
Philadelphia Blazers: Undefeated in AHF play, the Blazers have plenty of scoring to go around in their line-up with two players– Kayden Wetherell (18) and Johnny Stokes (16)– in the teens for goals. But it’s not all offense, as their defense has taken care of business as well. Allowing only ten shots on goal a game, it has allowed Quinn Donofry to have a 1.43 GAA after seven games this season.
When a team outscores its opponents 79-18 in just ten games, it’s definitely a team to keep an eye on. The Ashburn Xtreme boasts the most lethal offense in U10 AA. The team has five players who average at least a point per game and two who average a goal a game. The Xtreme is led by Cohen Polley, the U10 AA leader in goals (25) and points (33) who has already recorded six hat tricks on the season with four of those being in four-goal games.
North Jersey Bandits
Being undefeated through eight games is an easy way to prove you belong on a teams to watch list. The Bandits’ +36 goal differential is the third-best differential in U10 AA, outscoring its opponents 53-17. Owen Mitchell leads the way offensively with 20 points and has received great defense and goaltending so far this season.
The Devils’ 58 total goals rank second amongst total goals scored by a team in U10 AA and have the second-best goal differential in the league with a +46. Boasting eight players averaging a point per game or higher, the team’s offense complements its defense very well and makes them a team to look out for heading into the weekend.
North Jersey Aspen Kings Blue
The Kings enter the showcase 4-0-0 and have been spectacular on both sides of the ice. Outscoring its opponents 32-2 in those four games, the team is well round and boasts a deadly offense and a shutdown defense. Mark Dybas has been lights out this season, turning aside 73 of the 75 shots he has faced this season.
The Haverford Hawks enter this weekend winning three of its last four games. This streak has vaulted them into the top ten in U10AA. Led by Connor Kraus and his six goals, the team looks to continue its winning ways with a strong defense and good puck-moving offense.
