Devin Valeri, Hollydell Hurricanes Gold
A big presence in front, Valeri has been a top producer for the Hurricanes so far this season. A threat in the blue paint, Valeri causes plenty of havoc in front and gets rewarded for taking the abuse in front of the net.
James Smack, Maryland Jr. Black Bears White
With 16 goals in five AHF games, it’s safe to say that Smack has plenty of offensive upside to his game. A natural in scoring, Smack has hat-tricks in four of his five games played for the Jr. Black Bears.
Nicholas Calandra, Jersey Shore Wildcats Red
In only eight games, Calandra has posted 21 goals for Jersey Shore; far eclipsing his 12 goals in 18 games last season in U16 A. While he did have better than a point-per-game last season in U16 A, Calandra has used that season as a huge jumping off point heading into this season.
Aidan Rozell, Brick Hockey Club
In only nine games, Rozell has matched his output from last season in U16 A with six goals and 13 points in half as many games last year. With a solid showing in the August Showcase, Rozell is looking to take control on the bigger stage once again.
Ryan Jarvie, Atlantic City Sharks
In his first year with Atlantic City, Jarvie has made quite an impression with 10 points in his first six games. Jarvie has great vision of the ice and solid decision making when it comes to handling the puck.
Patrick Shearn, Grundy Senators
With a balanced attack, Shearn provides a dual threat in the offense for the Senators. While he does have a solid goal scoring touch, his ability to dish the puck to his teammates around him keeps the defense guessing on what he’ll do when he has the puck.
Ethan Bui, Hollydell Hurricanes Gold
While he might not be the biggest on the team, Bui’s heart and speed make up for that. A vicious back-checker, Bui won’t back down from the competition and will give as good as he gets. Many feel that he’s one of the top defensive forwards in the division.
Tony Brandl, Jersey Shore Wildcats Black
Brandl leads his squad with 10 goals this season, which is a huge feat for the blue-liner. A solid puck moving defenseman, Brandl not only adds offense; but he makes sure to be as responsible in his own end to help out his goalies.
Tyler Peterson, North Jersey Aspen Kings Grey
A solid puck-moving defenseman, Peterson leads all defenders across the division with eight assists on the season so far. The right-handed shot defenseman has solid vision of the ice in order to find his teammates for prime scoring chances.
Gavin Nace, Hollydell Hurricanes White
Even though he’s one of the more undersized defenders, Nace has put up a 2.25 points-per-game mark in AHF play this season. You’d never know that Nace is in his first season of U16 A hockey, but uses his solid skating talent to close any gap there may have been coming into the year.
Cody Arnold and Lucas Vellequette, New Jersey Jets
Arnold and Vellequette sport the lowest goals-against in the division with only two goals against given up between the two. Arnold has three shutouts on the season and Vellequette has one in a combined 255 minutes of AHF game time.
Owen El-Attar, Delaware Ducks
Having only let up three goals in four games, El-Attar has been solid for Delaware this season. With a 0.75 GAA and .950 save percentage, El-Attar has been one of the top goalies in the division.
Shane Brannick, Atlantic City Sharks
Brannick has played over 300 minutes this season and has a 2.17 GAA and .910 save percentage. In his six games this season, Brannick has only allowed more than one goal twice on the season.
