New England Prep Hockey Rankings

Rank Record The Skinny
1 ...16-2-0 (1) ...
2 ...8-0-5 (2) ...
7 Dexter x-x-x(10) Dexter, with a solid group of d-men and Derek Mullahy behind them, has the best team GAA in prep hockey. However, like DA, LA, and NMH, scoring has been scarce. But John Farinacci is back and his presence will be felt up and down the lineup. Dexter has a 5-game win streak and its best hockey may be yet to come. LAST WEEK: Beat Andover 4-0, beat Thayer 2-1, beat Brooks 3-0. THIS WEEK: vs. St. George's (Wed.), @ LA (Sat.)
8 Exeter x-x-x
9 Gunnery x-x-x(4) Senior F Robert Cronin has been kept off the scoresheet only 2 times this season, and is the #3 scorer in prep hockey. He's been especially hot since the New Year. In his last 8 games, Cronin has a 2-14-16 line. Also in 8 games, junior Alex Jefferies has as 5-9-14 line. Gunnery is the 5th highest-scoring team in prep hockey thus far. LAST WEEK: Beat T-P 3-1, lost to Millbrook 5-4. THIS WEEK: vs. Salisbury (Wed.), vs. Hill (Sat.)
10 Westminster x-x-x(N/R) Quietly sneaking up. Started the season 1-3-1. Have gone 6-1-1 since, including back-to-back shutouts of Loomis (Sat.) and Avon (Mon.) by junior G Ian Shane. The California native has to be good, because the team in front of him is pretty average offensively (25th in the league). LAST WEEK: Beat Canterbury 4-1, beat Loomis 1-0, beat Avon 3-0. THIS WEEK: @ Deerfield (Wed.), @ Kent (Sat.)
