Players to Watch
Noah Gaudet-Barton (Osahwa Generals): Covers the ice well with a smooth stride and great transitional skating. Couple that with his size and reach, he is a tough opponent to beat off the rush or out of a corner. He can create a lot of turnovers and transitional plays off his ability to knock pucks down and disrupt plays. Gaudet-Barton then can quickly get pucks up ice and follow up the attack creating offense for his team.

Danny Adamo (Niagara North Stars): Has been keeping defenders on their back foot all season. He is a very quick and dynamic player who can attack off the rush well. Defenders will have to respect his speed outside, but also know he has the agility to make quick cuts and dart to open ice. Adamo has good awareness and can then find his teammates with seam passes. Left alone, he has quick hands around the net and can score some timely goals.

U18 AAA Rankings
A strong finish to the regular season keeps the top teams in place.
