Maine Nordiques’ (NAHL) forward Timothy Kent has committed to Curry College.
“Kent is a speedy forward who was able to create offense off the rush,” said our scouts. “He demonstrated the ability to move pucks early on the zone entry which resulted in sustained pressure. Kent added a goal and had several shots on net.”
Kent, 20, just completed his first season playing in the NAHL in 2019-20. Florida native finished third in team scoring this past season with 11 goals and 37 assists, good for 48 points in 37 games.
“Timmy is an unbelievable competitor, and that is what I respected the most from him,” said Nordiques head coach Nolan Howe. “He demanded the best from himself and his teammates, and he backed up his words with his actions. Coming back to juniors from college was a big decision for him, one that I am happy he made. He was a force for us from Day 1 as he established himself as a premier player in our league. His speed and creativity really put opponents on their heels, and it was fun to watch the other areas of his game Improve as the season went along as well. I know that he is going to do great things in life and the next step on his journey will be a great one at Curry College, where I know he will have a terrific experience on and off the ice.”
Despite smaller size (5-foot-9) our scouts, in another viewing, again praised his speed.
“Smaller forward was all over the ice,” they said. “Timmy is athletic and has quick feet and above average strait-line speed. Works hard in all zones and is relentless on the forecheck and on back-pressure. Handles the puck well at top speed and has the ability to make defenders miss in space. Is tough to stop once he gets moving. Is limited by his size around the net but does a good job of playing off of contact.”
