The Super Team
Nick Cummings, Waltham
|When Hawks coach John Maguire needed a boost, the solution was simple. Put Cummings on the ice. The blue liner wasn't necessarily the biggest player on the ice (5-9, 165), but he played an intelligent, controlled style. He was a four-year player and three-time Greater Boston League All-Star. Waltham finished 20-4-1 this winter.|
Mike DiMare, Malden Catholic
|DiMare has made a name for himself in the Catholic Conference, having earned an MVP award, two scoring titles, and three times getting named all-conference. The speedy right wing fired on all cylinders for the Lancers this year, finishing with 28 goals and 22 assists as Malden Catholic earned a berth in the Super 8 tournament.|
Kevin Fairweather, Woburn
|Tanners coach Jim Duran often wondered where his team would be without the unflappable netminder, who had five shutouts this season and finished with a 1.44 goals-against. A three-time Middlesex League all-star, finished his career with 14 shutouts and a 1.54 GAA. He's narrowed his college search to Connecticut, Stonehill, or Trinity.|
Ross Gaudet, Austin Prep
|Cougars coach Louis Finocchiaro calls the two-time All-Scholastic among the "top one, two or three players in the state." Gaudet had 24 goals and 20 assists this season in leading AP to the Super 8 semifinals and finished his career with a Catholic Central League MVP honor and 150 points. He plans on playing junior hockey.|
Pat Kiley, Reading
|Kiley's first three seasons at Reading are laid out neatly on his stat sheet. Freshman year: 25 points. Sophomore year: 42 points. Junior year: 30 goals and 73 points and a spot on the All-Middlesex League team. Led by Kiley, Reading won the Middlesex League title and competed in the Super 8 tournament.|
Mike Vasilchuk, BC High
|Vasilchuk hardly ever wavers in his confident assertions and positive approach. In four years at BC High (twice as a Globe Super Team member), he did little wrong. In his final two years, the 6-2 Stoneham resident was the key blue-liner in BC High's first ever back-to-back Super 8 titles and added 3 goals and 15 assists this year.|
Doug Carr, Hanover
|Hanover coach Jim Sylvia called Carr "the greatest goalie in my 30 years of coaching." In 24 games en route to a state championship, Carr produced 13 shutouts, a 0.75 goals-against average and a .975 save percentage in his first year of high school hockey.|
Ryan Casey, Austin Prep
|Casey led AP to the Super 8 semifinals, after helping secure a Catholic Central League title. The Pelham, N.H., resident finished with an AP-record 40 career wins, along with a miniscule 1.82 GAA. He'll play junior hockey next year.|
Colin Donohue, Scituate
|The 5-6 center did it all for the Sailors, scoring five game-winning goals, 8 shorthanded tallies, 61 points, and MVP honors in the Bourne Canalmen Classic and Division 3 HNIB tournaments. Donohue finished his career with 145 points.|
John Heffernan, BC High
|Committed to a Hockey East program (Merrimack) as a junior, Heffernan showed this year why he'll move from one elite conference (Catholic) to another. The Scituate native had 32 points, helping the Eagles to back-to-back Super 8 titles.|
Bobby Holland, Woburn
|Playing in the deep Middlesex League, Holland had to work hard to make a name for himself, and he did, finishing with 53 points this season and 112 for his career. The left wing helped bring the Tanners to a pair of Division 1 final appearances.|
Paul Jaskot, Central Catholic
|Jaskot took home MVC/DCL Division 1 Player of the Year honors after scoring 37 goals and adding 32 assists. He finished second all-time in Central Catholic scoring (148 points). The honor roll student is headed for prep school in the fall.|
Tim King, Weymouth
|King, a forceful center, tallied 24 goals and 20 assists this year for the Wildcats and was the team's offensive sparkplug during its unexpected run to the Super 8 championship game. He'll likely play junior hockey next year.|
Bryan Rosata, Catholic Memorial
|Rosata's exploits date to 2003, when as a freshman he helped CM to the first of two straight Super 8 titles. The three-time Catholic Conference all-star, who's headed for Bowdoin next fall, had 16 goals and 23 assists in his final season.|
Collin Tracy, Medford
|The senior continued to add footnotes to one of the finest careers in Medford hockey history. A three-time Greater Boston League all-star, Tracy had a 1.50 GAA with six shutouts in earning All-Scholastic honors for the second straight year.|
Mike Tuplin, Weymouth
|Alongside 13 senior teammates, Tuplin was able to stand out. Not surprising, considering he's 6-2, 200 and works just as hard off the ice (National Honor Society). Tuplin's commanding presence helped propel the Wildcats into the Super 8 final.|
Coaches of the Year
Bob Donovan, Weymouth
|As the stakes grew higher and the improbable wins piled up, one could sense the reserved, modest Donovan was opening up. The veteran coach, in his final year behind the Wildcats bench, had no choice. He led Weymouth to a 23-2 record and the Super 8 final, just the second time in the tournament's 17-year history that a public school finished second (Medford in 1993).|
John Blake, Duxbury
|Blake is only 32 years old, but has quickly built an impressive resume. He has spent the past four years at Duxbury and in that time, has won two Division 1 championships and appeared in two Super 8 tournaments. That includes a Division 1 title this year, when the team went 16-7-3. Of the seven losses, four came against teams that made the Super 8 final four.|
James Sylvia, Hanover
|Sylvia's slate is as clean as ever. That's what happens when the numbers were as gaudy as they were this year for the Boston State College graduate. Thirty years coaching. More than 400 wins. A 24-1-1 record that ended with a Division 2 state championship. "[They] were very focused to get the job done, which they did," Sylvia said of his team, which included All-Scholastic goalie Doug Carr.|
Linc Cornell, Weston
|Cornell knows how to motivate. More importantly, he does it fast. In just the second year of varsity play after Weston resurrected a program that was disbanded in the late 1980s, the team advanced to the Division 3 North final. The Dual County League Coach of the Year has excelled at every level, including Natick Mites, Squirts, and Pee Wees, and Weston girls.|
