Alex Aracich is coming off a very successful 2017-2018 Season. He was voted MVP at the EJEPL Playoffs and ultimately the team won its first ever championship at 16U Division. This year Alex has picked up right where he left off. Solid performance between the pipes has earned him many accolades from his teammates and opponents.

He was also instrumental in the 4-3 win vs. Philadelphia Revs stopping 36 out of 39 shots. The Revs where at that time, in first place in the Diamond 1 Division and had yet to lose a game. “Alex always gives us a chance to win” says coach Ludeman.
Returning defensemen Nikolai Chernitsky is again catching the eyes of quite a few other teams as well. The hard-hitting speedy defensemen is always on the prowl as he loves to play a physical brand of hockey. Nikolai can also supply timely goals and assists when needed. 6 goals, 7 assists and +12 rating speaks for his all-around production on the team. “Nikolai is one of the hardest working players on and off the ice” says Coach Borner.
