Upcoming Hockey Talents
by The Milton Measure on Friday, February 24th, 2012
In light of last year’s success, both the girls’ and boys’ hockey seasons have been a real struggle, and with the end of the winter season in sight, some have directed their attention to next season’s success. The key element for these teams is young players, who can contribute for seasons to come. Here are some of those top underclassmen to watch out for on the ice next year.
For the Boys Team:
1. Sean Brennan (IV). Sean never ceases to amaze fans and other players with his soft hands and impeccable accuracy. As a freshman, Brennan has made an irreplaceable impact on this year’s team, finding the back of the net on multiple occasions. This left wing has a bright future with Milton Academy hockey.
2. Jeremy Gunn (III). Jeremy’s 2011/2012 season was unfortunately plagued with an early season knee injury. However, as a freshman his tenacious defense and quick feet helped take the team to the New England Championship. Keep an eye out to see Jeremy back on the ice next year as he returns from injury and looks to be a key factor to the team’s success next year.
3. Scotty Majkowski (III). Scotty, a sophomore from Chicago, brings intensity and effort to every practice and has a deep arsenal of tactics to employ on offense, most notably an “electric” wrist shot. Scotty manifested his potential against Exeter, one of this year’s New England powerhouses, contributing a goal in Milton’s 4-2 victory.
For the Girls Team:
1. Maura Noone (III). Maura plays a Bobby Orr style of defense, making her very fun to watch. Her awareness and fluidity on the ice allows her to control the tempo of the game. Maura is also a threat in the offensive zone as she is able to put the puck into the net, it will be fun to see how she matures as a leader of the team.
2. Cameron Park (III). Cameron’s outstanding speed on skates and quick stick work make her a tough mark for defenders. This forward from Robbins House brings energy and intensity to all aspects of the game and her wrist shot leaves goalies in the dust. Look out for Cameron in the final games of the season because she is bound to make an impact.
3. Rosamond Carr (III). Rosamond, who plays forward with Cameron, makes plays with her puck handling, strength, and speed. A threat on breakaways, Rosamond can juke a defender or fire a wrist shot. A hard-working contributor, Rosamond is undoubtedly going be an effective leader in the future.
