Joey Cipollone (Loomis, 5’11/165, 7/12/1999) – Had a very strong weekend and was consistently the best player on the ice. Plays a complete game at the prep level. Stronger player that skates well using long powerful strides. Has the speed to beat defenders wide, and plays more of a finesse game. Finds seams with ease and on numerous occasions split the defense through the neutral zone for break-a-way chances. Has a heavy shot with a quick release. Smart player who thinks the game well and uses his teammates to his advantage. Also not afraid to be physical and is relentless on the forecheck. College: Vermont. Weekend grade: A
