53 Former Prep Players in NHL

In December, we tallied up the number of former prep players in the NHL. We counted 40. 

Now, with the 2016-17 regular season concluded, we went through all the players who apeared in at least one NHL game this season and found 13 more former prep players, bringing the total to 53. Fifty are from NEPSAC schools and three from NEPSAC affiliates Nichols (2) and Stanstead (1).

Fifty-one of the 53 players played at least some college hockey -- and the majority graduated. Zach Bogosian (OHL) and Keith Yandle (QMJHL) are the only two former prep players who didn't play college hockey.

We've only included NEPSAC players. We could probably make an equally good list of former Minnesota high schoolers currently playing in the NHL. And then there are programs like Shattuck-St. Mary's (Jonathan Toews, Patrick Eaves, Zach Parise, Sidney Crosby, Drew Stafford, Jack Johnson, Kyle Okposo, Emerson Etem, et al) and Culver (Ryan Suter, John-Michael Liles, Nic Dowd, Ryan Suter et al).

Please note that 12 of the 53 NEPSAC players listed below weren't even drafted, something current prep or college players should keep in mind. Play hard, keep improving, and don't worry about things you can't control.

While we're at it, we want to give a shout out to Mike Vecchione, of Malden Catholic and Union College. Vecchione, one of the three Hobey Baker finalists, played the final two games of the Philadelphia Flyers' season. He, too, was undrafted.

‘03s and ‘04s at the TPE Spring Showcase

 
The Second Annual Total Pro Evaluation Spring Showcase, held the first weekend in April at Merrimack College, featured a strong group of ‘03s, ‘04s, and ‘05s.

The tournament, run by Boston Bruins amateur scout Scott Fitzgerald, added six teams in total this year, with two teams added at the oldest (’03) level, one team at the ’04 level, and three at the ’05 level.

Just like last year, the pace of the games was high, and the play was brisk, with a minimum of penalties called. Just good, clean hockey played by many of the country’s top young players.

Also, like last year, each team had one pro scout and one prep coach behind the bench.

We were there for two of the three days, and have worked up a list of the top ‘03s and ‘04s. We spent the bulk of our time watching the ‘03s, checked in a little more casually with the ’04 level, and didn’t watch the ‘05s except in passing. Just too young. We’ll catch them next year. Our evaluations are a hybrid, with weight given to both how the players performed in the tournament, and, given variations in physical development, their future potential.

           


’03 FORWARDS:

A+

Ryan St. Louis
, #9 Red Wings, Mid-Fairfield Jr. Rangers – Powerful, strong skater who can gain separation quickly. Excellent puck skills. Strong sense of game. Leading scorer here (5g,2a). Son of former UVM and NHL star Martin St. Louis. Will be going to Brunswick.

Jack Hughes, #8 Red Wings, Eagles Elite – Tall, skinny, excellent skater, excellent vision and hockey sense. When he gets stronger, he could be a force. Played on a line with Ryan St. Louis. Had a 1-4-5 scoring line. Brother, Riley Hughes, is at St. Seb’s. Father is agent and Junior Eagles U16 coach Kent Hughes. 

Anthony Agostinelli, #14 Flyers, Rochester Monarchs – Excellent combination of size and stick skills, skating and hockey sense. A real standout.

A

Paul Davey, #8 Canadiens, Mid-Fairfield Jr. Rangers – Has size, skill, and a good long stride. Not as dominant as he was at last year’s tournament, but has plenty of upside.

Colby Saganiuk, #15 Red Wings, Chicago Mission – Played on the line with Hughes and St. Louis and they all complemented each other. Saganiuk was the motor – really good energy, and physical. Had 2 goals and 2 assists.

Dylan Duke, #8 Flyers, Belle Tire – The Flyers had plenty of skill, and Duke was their best forward after Agostinelli, his linemate (along with Jackson Morehouse). His younger brother, Tyler, a defenseman, also on Belle Tire, was his teammate here. Both were very good. A package deal.

Matt McGroarty, #8 Rangers, Mid-Fairfield Jr. Rangers – Big, skilled, works hard, and can get around the ice. McGroarty centered a productive line that also featured PJ Neal and Michael Hurst.

Cully Wilson, #9 Rangers, Boston Advantage – Good size. Good skill. Good skater. Works hard.

JP Turner, #16 Rangers, Boston Jr. Terriers – Power forward. Good size. A little raw.

Jackson Morehouse, #10 Flyers, Jr. Penguins Elite – Tall, a bit of a physically undeveloped beanpole. Has a long stride. Always around the net. A productive player. Had a 2-2-4 scoring line. His father is president of the Pittsburgh Penguins. 

B+

Kenny Connors, #11 Blackhawks, Team VirtuaForechecks, backchecks, competes hard, and is always around the puck. A 200-foot player.

Jeremy Wilmer, #12 Blackhawks, LI Gulls -- Tiny. Couldn’t weight more than 100 lbs. But he has skill, sense, and a high hockey IQ. And he can scoot.

 

B

Shawn O’Donnell, #15 Rangers, Junior Penguins – 200-foot forward. Makes plays, works hard, has good hands, and the hockey sense to match.

Liam Gilmartin, #11 Red Wings, Washington Little Caps – Huge, strong, but has good stick skills and agility.

David Chen, #9 Canadiens, NJ Colonials – Small playmaker with speed. 

Tim Delay, #10 Blackhawks, Eagles Elite – Excellent speed. Good size. Son of former Hingham High and BC forward Tim Delay.

Tyler Boucher, #10 Canadiens, Team Virtua – Good skater with good stick skills.
Son of former Mount St. Charles and NHL goaltender Brian Boucher.

Sam Lipkin, #8 Blackhawks, Team Virtua – Smart player with good skills. Had 2 goals and 2 assists on the weekend.

PJ Neal, #10 Rangers, Mid-Fairfield Jr. Rangers -- Strong skater.

Brendan Gorman, #11 Rangers, Wizards --  Another good-sized power forward in the making. Attends St. Seb’s. Younger brother of Arrows’ Liam Gorman. Son of former Matignon and Princeton D Sean Gorman.

Noah Laba, #9 Bruins, Belle Tire – Strong skater; solid in all facets of the game.

Anthony Cafarelli, #15 Blackhawks, Valley Jr. Warriors -- Good combination of skill, strength, and toughness. 


Nick McSorley, #11 Flyers, Islanders Hockey Club – Tall, skinny. Led his regular season team in scoring. 1-3-4 here.

Dante Palombo, #15 Canadiens, Westchester Express – Skilled little guy.

Riley Fitzgerald, #17 Flyers, Islanders Hockey Club – Quite small, but has a good stick, can make a play, clever in small areas and along wall, and has a head for the game. Going to Belmont Hill.

Greg Spitznagel, #10 Bruins, NJ Colonials – Big right-shot wing. Power forward.

Bill Norcross, #14 Bruins, Islanders Hockey Club – Hard worker. Plays the full 200 feet.

Matt Brille, #9 Blackhawks, Team Maryland – Solid north-south power forward.

Will Conway, #12 Bruins, Valley Jr. Warriors – Big, heavy kid with skill and sense. His feet will get better as he grows into body.

Drew Blackwell, #12 Flyers, Valley Jr. Warriors – Powerful skater. Strong, with good puck skills. His dad coaches Methuen (Mass.) High School.

Danny Minnehan, #12 Red Wings, LA Jr. Kings – Tall and lanky skill forward with good skating ability. Skilled with puck, but gets unnecessarily cute with it at times.


’03 DEFENSEMEN:

A+


Dylan Gratton, #5 Blackhawks, North Jersey Avalanche – Can skate with the puck, can shoot it, passes are on the money, sees the ice, makes plays, and has size. Well-rounded player with plenty of upside. He was our top-ranked ’03 D here last year as well.

Aiden Hreschuck, #6 Flyers, LA Jr. Kings – From LA, but has family here. Interested in NCAA route, and if he keeps at it, he’ll get there. He can skate and make plays. Equally good at both end of the ice. Consistently noticeable.

 

A

Carter Schade, #2 Bruins, Junior Penguins Elite – Really good two-way D makes a great first pass. Has a strong sense of the game. Defends smartly with his stick. Very efficient.

Tyler Procious, #5 Flyers, Rochester Monarchs – He has size, skating ability, skill, patience, and a sense of the game. The Flyers, by the way, had a great group of d-men. At least we thought so: all six made this list.

Drew Tsakounis, #2 Rangers, NJ Colonials – Strong, solid defenseman. Good skater, good shot.

Will Killoran, #4 Flyers, Islanders Hockey Club – Big, strong, physical prototypical defensive d-man.

Michael Rubin, #3 Blackhawks, NJ Colonials --- Well-rounded two-way defenseman. Very poised.

Brendan Fitzgerald, #2 Flyers, Islanders Hockey Club  -- Not as much of a standout as he was last year, but offensive d-man has top-notch stick skills. Quick and highly mobile. A high risk/high reward type. Son of Tommy Fitzgerald, former Providence College and NHL forward; brother of Ryan and Casey.

Nick Wallace, #5 Rangers, NJ Colonials – Excellent skater.

Sam Volturo, #2 Red Wings, Palm Beach Blackhawks – Moving up to Michigan to play for Compuware. Excellent puck mover.


B

Tyler Duke, #7 Flyers, Belle Tire – He’s actually an ’04 playing up, but if he were with his own age group he'd probably be an A or even an A+. Duke competed hard, was physical, and didn’t back down to anyone. Can lug the puck. A Torey Krug type.

Therien Thiesing, #3 Bruins, Chicago Mission – Nashville native living in Chicago and playing for the Mission. Tall, lanky, and physical.

Davis Kinne, #2 Canadiens, Islanders Hockey Club -- Big and strong, with a shot.

Nick Peters, #5 Bruins, U14 Flames – Defensive d-man. Has good size and skating ability.

Will Elias, #3 Canadiens, Eagles Elite – Very good skater with size.

Nick Roukounakis, #5 Red Wings, Eagles Elite – Nominally a forward, but looked quite at home on the blue line. He's strong, physical, and he can skate.

Chase Ramsey, #3 Flyers, Westchester Express – Solid two-way defenseman.

Ryan Ufko, #6 Canadiens, Mid-Fairfield Elite – Short and stocky, average skater, but has excellent hands and can move the puck smartly.


’03 GOALTENDERS:

1. Thomas Heaney, #30 Blackhawks, NJ Colonials – Shut the Bruins down in Saturday’s game. Good size.

2. Brett Cleaves, #30 Flyers, NJ Devils – Didn’t have a great weekend, but is a highly-regarded ’03 goalie. Has size. We had him as our #1 goalie at last April’s TPE Tournament.

3. Alex Mickanin, #30 Red Wings, South Shore Kings – Biggest goalie here. Was excellent against strong Flyers team.

4. Connor Callaghan, #31 Bruins, Mid-Fairfield Jr. Rangers – He’s got the size everyone is looking for these days.
