    Hockey in America

    Of the 50 United States, guess which state is #14 on most players?

    This is how to do it.

    Post the link, save.

    Then edit the link and remove " rel= and everything that follows that they tack on for some God unknown reason.

    Ridiculous that northern states like VT NH Maine and IL don't have as much participation as they should.

    I googled it and found it that way.

    Florida at #14. And they weren't one of the faster growing states so they were ranked similarly last year I assume.

    Chick hockey grew by 2.33%. Red will be pleased :)

    I'd like to see these numbers adjusted for population and see where they rank. That would be more indicative to me of how popular the sport is in each particular state.

    Nice to see such a big uptick in ND, but it's always bugged me that their playing population is so low. I know it's a low population state, but one would think they'd still have more players than that.

    That's why I wonder what the rankings would look like adjusted for population. Hockey players per capita type of thing.  ND would move up quite a bit I bet.

    Massachusetts Hockey!  Fruits of the strength of the program will be seen in next year's draft; Jack Eichel (Chelmsford), Noah Hanifin (Norwood) & Colin White (Hanover) potentially in the top-5 of the 2015 draft.

    Not real happy the US left Hanifan off the Junior evaluation camp. Don't know if that had to do with him accelerating his courses at BC or not. Anthony Florentino from West Roxbury was invited along with Eichel. 


     


    PS. Nobody from Florida invited...just sayin.

    Who is the last Mass kid to go in the top-5?  I looked quickly, Ryan Whitney in 2002?  Sounds like Eichel and Hanifin are expected in the top-3 and White within the next few picks.

    There are only 13 states that have more USA Hockey enrollments.  I wasn't aware that people needed to make the NHL in order to be hockey players.

    Definitely due for a bumper crop from Mass next year.  Maybe the next Tkachuk, Amonte, Roenick, Leetch group...tired of clinging to those guys.

    players.html

     

    A little update on the last Florida hockey prospect discussion.

     

    "Malcolm Lyles left for Massachusetts when he was 13, rooming with his brother. Malcolm ended

    up spending two seasons at Boston College after prep school, but left there because of a lack

    of playing time and development. He moved even further from home, spending last season with the

    Vernon Vipers of the British Columbia Hockey League. He'll finish his collegiate career at

    UMass-Lowell."

     

    Malcolm Lyles Miami Gardens, FL - 21 games with Pensacola of the SPHL 23 years young.

     

    "Andrew Yogan became the first Florida born-and-raised player to be drafted by the NHL last

    summer, taken in the fourth round by the New York Rangers. Yogan moved from South Florida to be

    noticed by scouts and he was, drafted by the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League. From

    there, all of his games were watched by NHL scouts."

     

    Andrew Yogan Coral Springs, FL - 16 games with Greenville of the ECHL 22 years old.

     

    “It wasn't easy but it was better hockey, better exposure for him to play division I college

    hockey,'' said Joe Casacci, whose son Nick moved to play hockey at a prep school in Kent,

    Connecticut, after his sophomore year at St. Thomas Aquinas High."


    Nick Casacci Ft. Lauderdale - last seen playing 13 games with Suny-Potsdam.

     

    "Suellentrop went to Detroit where he played Tier 1 hockey for the powerhouse Compuware

    program. Like Yogan, Suellentrop ended up in the OHL. Yogan and Suellentrop may have been the

    rare Florida kid on a Canadian junior team, but there are more coming."

     

    Colin Suellentrop Plantation, FL - 67 games with Oshawa 23 points at 21.

     

    "And then there is defenseman Malcolm Lyles. Lyles grew up in Miami Gardens and would have

    attended Carol City or American high schools had he stayed in South Florida. “Neither of those

    schools even have a hockey team,'' he said. Lyles and his brother Milton both played for the

    Junior Wolves travel hockey team out of Pembroke Pines but left to attend school in the Boston

    area."

     

    Malcolm Lyles Miami Gardens, FL - 21 games with Pensacola of the SPHL 23 years young.

     

    "Nathan Glass, who left Aquinas last year, was recently drafted by the Otters and is draft-

    eligible next summer."

     

    Nathan Glass Weston, Fl. Last played in the OHL/QMJHL 38 games with 9 points at 20 years old.

     

    Hot bed!

    Re: Hockey in America

    I don't understand your approach, Sandog.  The stat was about number of people who play, not number of people who have gone on to play professionally.  Everyone always says no one follows hockey here.  Well, considering these stats, I'd say people do!

    I don't know how many natives of Florida follow the game, but I have met plenty of people who are diehard fans from many different places.  Sadly, most are from NY/PHI/PITT, but a hockey fan of a hated team is much better than an NBA fan.
