News & Notes
2013 Recruit Andrew Poturalski broke his ankle during a weekend practice session and will be out of the Buffalo Junior Sabres' lineup for 6 to 8 weeks. Poturalski was having an outstanding season leading the Jr. Sabres in points with 12 goals and 17 assists in 21 games. He was tied for 7th in the Ontario Junior Hockey League in assists and tied for 9th in points. The NHL Central Scouting Service had given Poturalski a "C" rating on the "2012 NHL Entry Draft Players to Watch" list, indicating that he has the potential to be drafted in Rounds #6 or #7 in the NHL Entry Draft next summer. The broken ankle is an unfortunate setback for Poturalski who could miss as many as 20 games during the prime time of the season. We wish Poturalski a full and speedy recovery.

Shane Eiserman & the Massachusetts Tier 1 18-Under State Tournament:
~ 2014 UNH Recruit Shane Eiserman and the Greater Boston Junior Bruins advanced to the championship game of the Mass 18-Under State Tournament in Foxboro on Sunday. In a close game, the Jr. Bruins lost to the Cape Cod Whalers 6-4. Pat Bohan of the GB Junior Bruins organization informed me that Eiserman played extremely well scoring 6 goals and 2 assists in the five tournament games. He and his teammates must be disappointed that they will not represent the Massachusetts District in the USA Hockey National Championship Tournament next spring. Eiserman begins his first regular season with Cushing Academy on Dec. 2nd against the Winchendon School.
~ 2012 Recruit Mike Vecchione had his second multi-point game of the season, scoring a goal and assist for the Tri-City Storm against the Lincoln Stars.
~ So far this season, forward Michael McNicholas has seen more playing time with the Muskegon Lumberjacks. He has played in 4 games and registered 4 shots on goal.
~ 2012 Recruit, Kyle Smith, added 2 assists in two games this week with the Junior Bruins and is tied for 5th in assists in the EJHL.
