I agree with you Gleason is awesome and is my pick for Mr Hockey.
Not to get too picky, but Andover had 5 skaters in Elite League.
I think there depth goes beyond the (your) usual suspects....LOL

Does anyone have any insight as to what's behind Benilde's problems? As I recall Karl had them ranked No. 1 - or very close to it - at the start of the season. Has any team in recent memory fallen from the top, to not even being ranked, by Christmas :?:
Maybe the Red Knights finding their legs just a bit as they had a convincing 6-2 win over Lakeville South, Karl's No. 6 team this week.

MG65...Oh, I agree. They have nice depth to go along with about 6-8 marquee players 👍 I just tend to sheaf a bit when posters suggest one team rolls 4 lines (like an equal playing time youth hockey association edict) when in reality they simply DON’T. As both my sons varsity coach would say at our initial parents, players, coaches meeting following tryouts “Ice time will be fair, but it won’t be equal” And I’m pretty sure 99% of varsity HS coaches say some variation of this at the start of each season too☝️

Sometimes the problem is to many marquee players.

FWIW I believe Gleason,Kaiser and Biondi are the front runners at this point.
