NEEDHAM, Mass. — New York Hockey Journal attended multiple prep hockey holiday showcases during the weekend, including the Mutch Cup Hockey Tournament hosted by St. Sebastian’s School from Dec. 17-19.
Northwood defeated Brunswick in a shootout, 3-2, to win the finals. The Huskies received strong performances from New York forwards Brady Hildreth (Lockport, N.Y.) and Bryan Jones (Potsdam, N.Y.).
Hildreth provided Northwood with steady two-way efforts and good playmaking ability. Jones used his size and strength to win puck battles and his deceptive speed to drive pucks to the net.
Here is more analysis on Hildreth, Jones, and eight other players from the Tri-State area – New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut – who stood out.
