BOSTON — On Monday and Tuesday, some of the best 2008-born players from around the world battled at Harvard's Crimson Combine.
Both days were filled with practices, seminars and Q&As designed to help players navigate their next few years.
There were five natives of the New York/New Jersey area who earned a spot on this list.
Two games were played at the end of each day, which is the action that I watched. Players born in 2010 were doing a separate Crimson Combine. Later this week on Thursday and Friday, the '09s and the '11s will arrive on campus for their Crimson Combine experiences.
A separate story will be done on defensemen and goaltenders. Here are 10 standout forwards from the two games.
