[QUOTE=northeastern;6867732]per Jeff Cox, NU commit Gunnarwolfe Fontaine makes U.S. Junior Select team for the Junior A Challenge (Canada), this December. One of thee New Englanders/QUOTE]
The fact that only three New Englanders were chosen speaks volumes about the lamentable (and accelerating) decline of hockey in general and the woeful state of elite player development in a region that has historically been a bastion of hockey interest in North America. (Anybody notice that Matignon High School--once a perennial MA hockey power--won't even have a team this year?) Many reasons contributing to the alarming decline that none of the administrators now in charge seem to want to talk about. Maybe Cox or someone like him can write about it before there's nothing left to write about.
BTW, another NU commit (Stanley Cooley) selected to the Canada West team.
