NA3HL Northeast Generals Player Profile: Caiden Hess

Caiden Hess is making his mark on Junior Hockey this year and has a high celing. He is being asked to step into a big role for an NA3HL team that had a lot of its Fraser Cup group move on to higher levels. Hess is a speedy forward with the capacity to put up points in bunches, and plays a strong defensive game in his own end. If he can help the NA3HL group get back in that realm, then a lot of options at the NAHL level could rise.

As Head Coach of the NAHL group Bryan Erikson said of Hess’s game ” Caiden Hess has NA potential. He could push for a spot at some point this year (a game or a few) and a potential full time role next year. But he needs to continue to improve away from the puck. My favorite part of his game is his fearlessness. He hits everything that moves even though he is an undersized forward. He takes pucks to the net very well and he can rip it. I like his speed a lot but would like him to continue to lengthen his stride.”
