When you look at the NA3HL Northeast Generals, they made it to the Fraser Cup through having a well rounded team. When they were at their best this season, their defense exerted their will, and threw the body checks to make big plays and get the puck going the other direction.
Head Coach Darryl Locke just got a player that will start his season with the NA3HL group who brings that energy to the team.
Cedric Savoie is a Laval, Quebec native who brings his 6 fooy,2 inches tall frame to the group. He is a defensive defenseman that will make a lot of plays not readily apperant when looking at the box score, unless it has a spot for blocked shots, and key stick checks to stop offense from the other team.
As NAHL Head Coach, Bryan Erikson said of Cedric, and his background:
“Cedric brings a strong defensive game for the NA3HL team looking to get back to the Fraser Cup. He is a big strong kid that will be a physical presence for Darryl next season. Really looking forward to developing our relationship with Ulysse Académie which is a high end prep school that develops great young men and hockey player.”
Going forward, Erikson added
“He could potentially get a look at the NAHL. But having not played games this year because of the Pandemic he needs game reps to get back in the swing. But I am very excited about him joining the team.”
For the Generals to invest time in helping Cedric develop after not seeing him play at all this season shows what they value on their team, at the NA3HL and NAHL level, consistent players looking to get better and work for their ice. Cedric will have plenty of opportunities in Attleboro to do all of that next season, and showcase his skills to college scouts.
