Nathan Ciccarelli, North Jersey Aspen Kings Blue
The two-way forward has shown a lot of grit in his game this season. Not afraid to mix it up in the corners, Ciccarelli has been a source of energy for North Jersey, putting up three points in seven divisional games.
Stephen Gresch, Hollydell Hurricanes Red
With 12 points in the teams first 11 games, Gresch is showing his leadership on the scoresheet; but behind the scenes, the respect of his teammates show his leadership off the rink. With plenty of hockey sense and solid hands, Gresch will be a threat for Hollydell this showcase.
Tucker Graham, Team Philadelphia
A proven goal scorer, Graham has seven goals in six AHF match-ups this season, tallying a hat trick in the August Showcase. With a keen nose for the net, Graham will be a big offensive player for Team Philadelphia this coming weekend.
Connor Hall, Montgomery Youth Hockey Blue
In his last two AHF match-ups, Hall has potted three goals and added four assists. Hall has climbed through the Montgomery AA ranks the past three years, but this one he has discovered a scoring touch to compliment his solid passing ability.
Nicholas Marino, New Jersey Bandits
With seven goals in five AHF contests, Marino has been a big bright spot for this Bandits team. Marino is in his second season at the U16 AA level and looks to have found his footing, surpassing his goal total from last year in 13 fewer games.
Landon Street, Ashburn Xtreme
After a strong season last year, Street is continuing that trend this year with nine points in four AHF games this season. Coming off a better than point-per-game season last year at the U16 AA level, Street’s skill and natural playmaking ability continues to mature as he does.
Caden Hall, York Devils
After a year off, Hall hasn’t missed a step with seven points in six AHF match-ups. Hall is able to evenly distribute the puck when needed and uses his hockey sense to know when he needs to shoot the puck.
Tommy Ryerson, North Jersey Aspen Kings Blue
Ryerson has been crucial for the North Jersey offense by being able to hold the blue line and keep possession going for the team. He’s also not afraid of getting physical, using his big frame to his advantage against the opposition.
Hayden Shield, York Devils
With a good first touch, Shield is one of the main components starting up the York offense. With solid footwork and vision, Shield provides a solid option from the blue line, but he’s not afraid to throw the body around against the opponents to stake his claim in his own zone.
Colton Weiss, Igloo Jaguars Black
One of the top scoring defenseman, Weiss has five points in five AHF contests so far. Weiss has come into his own this year offensively, taking more chances with the puck, which as yield solid offensive returns for the Jaguars.
Johans Bars, North Jersey Skyland Kings Navy
A solid puck-moving blueliner, Bars has been a solid on the point for the Skyland Kings. With three goals so far this season, Bars shows that he’s not afraid to take a shot when he’s needed to. He won’t force a shot, however, knowing when to find the open man for a better opportunity.
Dante DeFruscio, Team Philadelphia
With two of his three games in the AHF being shutouts, it’s not hard to see why DeFruscio is one of the top goalies in the U16 AA. Aided by a solid team in front of him, DeFruscio is able to see plenty of pucks coming his way and knows he’ll get plenty of goal support.
John Castle, York Devils
Sporting a 1.50 GAA in six games in the AHF, Castle has helped York go undefeated in those contests. Castle has only let up two goals in his last three starts for York and has been a big part of their success this season.
Zach Carter and Bailen Smargiassi, Hollydell Hurricanes Red
Both Carter and Smargiassi are backbones for the Hurricanes this season. Both have faced an average of 35 shots a game and have made big saves to keep Hollydell in many of their match-ups this season.
