Forward: Marc L’Heureux, Northern Cyclones
L’Heureux (‘02/Manchester, N.H.) had all kinds of fun in New Jersey at the Mid-Atlantic Showcase. He posted five goals (with a pair of two-goal games) and added three assists as the Cyclones went 3-1, losing only to the 14-1 Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights. L’Heureux is a second-year Cyclone and Captain of the Elite squad.
Defense: Shaun Caffrey, Bridgewater Bandits
Caffrey (‘03/Old Hickory, Tenn.) helped the Bandits go 3-1, like the Cyclones taking their only loss to Wilkes-Barre while in New Jersey. Caffrey assisted on Sean Heritage’s game-winner in their very first game of the weekend against the Jersey Hitmen.
Goaltender: Cameron Schermerhorn, Boston Junior Bruins
The Junior Bruins were the first team in New Jersey to eke out a point against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights, dragging them into a shootout which the Knights eventually won 5-4. Second-year Elite Junior Bruin Schermerhorn (‘04/Milford, Mass.) made 47 saves on 51 shots in full team play. He also had a win against the Jersey Whalers to go 1-0-0-1 at the Mid-Atlantic Showcase.
Forward: Blake Hasenauer, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights
Hasenauer (‘03/Hamburg, Pa.) played in just two of the four Elite games at the Mid-Atlantic Showcase, as he also earned a call-up to the Premier squad - and scored a goal against Buffalo in his second Premier game of the year! Overall, for the Elite Knights, Hasenauer finished with two goals and three assists for five points.
Defense: Austin Bailey, Jersey Hitmen
Bailey scored the only (and, thus, the game-winning) goal in the Hitmen’s 1-0 win against the Boston Junior Bruins to close out the Mid-Atlantic Showcase. The ‘04 from Towaco, N.J. - a second year Hitman - also registered an assist on the opening goal in a 3-1 win over Springfield.
Goaltender: Matthew Carter, Jersey Hitmen
The ‘04 from Florham Park, N.J., has gotten along perfectly well in the Elite Division, picking up wins over the weekend against Springfield (21 saves) and the Junior Bruins (18-save shutout).
