The Northeast Generals NA3HL team looks to build off of their strong 2016-2017 season.
After making the playoffs in their first year in the NA3HL the Northeast Generals have reloaded for the 2017-2018 season. A monster draft saw the Generals take twin East Boston Forwards, Kenny and John Lockhead, South Carolina forward Chris Wracker, Newton North D man Curtis Judd, standout d man Steve Tettoni, stud Dallas D man Dawson Plott and exciting Russian forward Fedor Lopaev.
The draft adds to some returning veterans in Captain Alex O’Dowd (smart skilled center that brings a ton of leadership and intangibles), Tommy Bellow (forechecking machine on the wing that flies up and down the ice hitting everything in site) and Dylan Figueroa (undersized center that led the NA3HL in blocks last year and won over 68% of his faceoffs).
In addition to our draft picks and returners the Generals have also signed some great talent over the past few weeks. Below is a small snapshot:
Kyle Wagner: 1999, Quick goalie that moves well laterally, local RI product.
Lucas Souza: 1998, Standout goalie at Somerset-Berkeley in 2016-17, very polished.
David Piela: 1999, Durfee High School, calm under pressure with a hint of nasty to his game David has been on the Generals radar for 2 years.
Alex LePage: 1998, Somerset-Berkeley High School towering D man that is very physical with a heavy shot.
Davis Kisielis: 1997, 6’5” D man from Latvia that brings an extremely physical presence to the Generals blue line along with Junior experience.
Dylan Sacks: 1999, another big d man (6’2”) that comes to us after playing in the T1EHL and AYHL in PA. Skilled puck moving D man.
Jacob Kelly: Standout forward at King Phillip High School (12 goals 11 assists as a Senior) who brings speed and toughness to the position.
Cam Tesorio: Fast left shot forward from Rhode Island that has great hands and vision. Competes hard every shift.
Josh Miller: California kid that has junior experience and has a ton of skill. Buzzes around the ice hitting everything that moves. Will be a huge impact player.
Billy Hartnett: Weymouth player that is young but has the size and strength to compete at the U20 level. Has a tremendous upside and we look for him to grow as a player as season goes on.
Jacob Fischer: 6’3” forward that clogs the lane and will park himself in front of the net to help create space for his line mates. Great kid that works hard.
Bransen MacKey: quick forward that gets to the net and has the ability to finish at a high level. Comes from a great Jr. Flyers U18 program.
