Northeast Generals Thanksgiving Week in Review

This week, before thanksgiving the Generals had three games in their organization.

The NAHL group went 1-1 on the road in Maine against the Nordiques. Head Coach Bryan Erikson said of the two games, of which he was proud of his team’s play in. “I actually thought we played pretty well on Tuesday but we just didn’t get the bounces and Maine deserved to win. I thought todays game was a great rebound game. It was great to see a few players such as David Tolan get his first goal. The kid has elite skill and showed it this week. And Joey McGraw the youngest player in the year took a huge step forward this week. Really great to see with both of them. Our leaders also stepped up both on and off the ice. Hopefully the boys get to enjoy a few days off with family and then we get right back to work against the first place Black Bears.”

The NA3HL group remained undefeated putting home three shorthanded goals in a 5-0 win over Norwich. Head Coach Daryl Locke said of the effort “ The boys were ready today. The locker room was an electric atmosphere. Don’t know if it was because of the Thanksgiving break or the winning streak but they were ready. We put ourselves in a hole early with some undisciplined penalties. Payton Felix was a force on the penalty kill with 2 shorthanded goals. Matt Nuzzolilo added a shorthanded goal also. I don’t remember the last time we had three consecutive shorthanded goals maybe never in Generals history. I thought Tyler Ramm was our best player tonight. He was a physical force for us all game. He controlled the game with his size and reach. He played with a mean streak I haven’t seen since his U16 year. He had a nice goal cutting across the blue line shooting across his body. He has one of the quickest releases I’ve seen for his age group. Mason Joseph had another solid game with another shutout. He made some timely saves when called upon. I said it before and I’ll say it again. We have the best goalie tandem in the league. Mason and D’Mar have been lights out for us. Overall, a good start to the first quarter of the season. Now the boys can gather with their families for Thanksgiving and enjoy some much needed rest.”

A Perfect Northeast Generals Week in Review

Photo Credit: Kelsey Lee-Violet Turtle Photography

For the first time in a while, the NAHL and NA3HL teams each won two games on the weekend. For the NAHL group, it was four points keeping them in the heart of a playoff battle in a tense east division. For the NA3HL group it was four more points to remain perfect on the season and further cement their hold on the division.

NAHL Week in Review

On their series opener, Erikson was quite pleased with his team’s 5-2 win over the Jamestown Rebels. He said “ I thought Friday was as close as we have come to playing a full 60 minutes. Still a lot to clean up but it was a great start to get back to being hard to play against. We forechecked well, we had good goaltending, our big guys stepped up and we had opportunistic goal scoring. It was a great start to the weekend.”

For the Saturday game, where the Generals earned a 3-2 overtime win, Erikson added “Yesterday I thought we played ok. But I also thought we played well in areas that we haven’t had a ton of success in which is when we trail in games. We did a good job battling back. Our PK was excellent. We gave up 1 PP goal but they had a 5 minute Power Play, and then we took back to back minors in the 3rd so it was essentially a 4 minute Power Play. And I thought we did a great job. And Brent Keefer did what he has done a few times this year and scored his 3rd GWG. It was a great play by Minnehan to get him the puck with full speed and Brent made a great individual effort to get us the 2 points. But it’s a quick turnaround as we are in Maine for games on Tuesday and Wednesday. Really need to dial it in tomorrow at practice and be ready to play a very good Maine team in a tough building.”

NA3HL Team

Head Coach Daryl Locke took the time to talk about his team getting four points in two wins against New Jersey.

He said “ I thought Saturday’s game the team came out with a lot of energy. I could sense during the warmup they were ready and focused. Payton Felix had his wheels going from the drop of the puck. His line with Sean Gorman and Cody Lambert had New Jersey on their heels all night with their forecheck. Nolan Murphy busted out with a hat trick, which was nice to see. When Nolan is going strong to the net he’s almost impossible to stop. His line with Braeden Kennedy and Matt Nuzzolilo move the puck really well together. Caiden Hess had another excellent game along with his line of Tyler Ramm and our captain Nick Wracker. The defense kept it simple and made some great outlet passes to our forwards in stride. I think when they play that way and not do too much, we’re able to use our speed to our advantage. Another shutout for Mason Joseph. He and D’Mar McCoy together give us a chance every night with their stellar play. I couldn’t be happier for Mason as he’s been battling a groin strain all week. He answered the bell in a big way for us.

Coming into Sunday’s game I was expecting a let down of sorts. I wasn’t expecting them to carry over the same enthusiasm they had the game before. As the warmup started I could sense the team was focused. They kept up their energy at the drop of the puck and forechecked relentlessly. All four lines had it going, which is the depth I was looking for from the start of the season. It makes my life easier when I can roll all four lines and wear down the opponent. The defense was solid again as they moved pucks up and got into the play. Kudos to that group as they played well in both games. Owen McNamee, Austin Crisp, Eddie Mulligan, Tommy Lubin, Cedric Savoie, and Joey McCreadie made our goalies life easy. D’Mar McCoy with another shutout and solid performance. Overall, a big four points in the standings with one game to go before the break.”

Northeast Generals Player Profile: Tyler Ramm

For the NA3HL group, they have had a lot of stars playing well this year. Undefeated teams need that level of depth and skill to play well.

One of their key contributors is Tyler Ramm.The forward has taken a step forward at the NA3HL level and has played well enough to earn a tender from the NAHL group for next season.

His Head Coach Daryl Locke said of Ramm’s superb play and of what earned him the tender “ I think the main thing for Tyler was getting him back to being the dominant power forward he was at the U16 level a couple of years ago. He dominated in all aspects of the game at that age group. He had long powerful strides, played physical, and had an absolute cannon of a shot. Last year I don’t think was a down year for him at the U18 level ,but he wasn’t as dominant as he wanted to be. Sometimes a player needs time to adjust to playing against older players. Some players adjust quickly on the fly and others take some time. Going into The NAHL Camp I thought he was starting to show flashes of dominance again but just not consistently enough to push himself into a roster spot. Coach Erikson wanted him to come down to the NA3 Team to work on his physical play, and rediscover his powerful skating stride. The last 3 or 4 games he’s been as dominant as I’ve ever seen him. He’s using his size and strength to his advantage and he’s cashing in on his offensive opportunities. Really proud of the way he’s handled himself and gone about his business everyday at the rink. He’s a great kid and extremely coachable. In my opinion it won’t be long before there’s a bidding war for his services at both collegiate levels.”

Northeast Generals: Week in review

Photo Credit: Kelsey Lee-Violet Turthe Photography

This week, the Northeast Generals organization had three more close games. At the end of them , the NAHL team saw that they have more work to get back in the playoff hunt. The NA3HL group came dangerously close to losing its first game of the year, only winning in a shootout.

NAHL

Head coach Bryan Erikson had the following to say about his group’s weekend.

“It’s frustrating. We played real well in parts but just not enough mental toughness to put together 60 full minutes of good hockey. But hopefully it will be a good learning experience. We are now 20 games in and our record isn’t where we want it to be. But we are in s decent enough place to make a run.

Tough stretch the past two weeks with 2 short practice weeks and 9 hour bus trips both ways. So to come out 2-2 isn’t the end of the world. But we have 4 games in 6 days coming up and it would be nice to string some wins together heading into thanksgiving.”

While this group had one game postponed, they still pulled together to stay undefeated against the Long Beach Sharks today, winning 3-2 in a shootout. As Erikson said of opportunities for this group to grow “Very sloppy and sluggish start. They wanted it more and it showed. Made too many mental mistakes and didn’t capitalize on our chances. They came with a good game plan and out played us for large parts of the game. But the win is what matters and D’Mar was electric in the OT and the shootout. Any Tyler Ramm made a great move and buried the Shoot out winner”

Coach Daryl Locke added “

“Unfortunately, Long Beach ran into some bus issues before traveling to Attleboro. Nothing either team could do as those things happen some times during the course of a season. Both teams were looking forward to the 2 game matchup. We had two good games against each other in Long Beach.
Today’s game was another sluggish start for us. D’Mar McCoy made some saves look routine but in fact were grade A chances for Long Beach. He really boosted us in the first 5 minutes with his play. We were able to regroup a bit and got a good bounce for a Payton Felix goal. Again we reverted back to a passive game and Long Beach came right back and tied it. A pretty close game the next two periods as both teams made pushes to extend the the lead trading goals to end the game in regulation 2-2. Overtime was more of a feeling out process for both teams. D’Mar made his best save with less than a minute to go. Somehow stoning a Long Beach forward with an incredible glove save on a 2 on 1 down low. The shoot out was more of The D’Mar Show. His calm, cool, demeanor in the net was impressive to watch. He stopped all five shooters. Tyler Ramm was a physical force all night for us tonight. He was playing with a bit of a chip on his shoulder tonight and had Long Beach looking over their shoulder when he was out there. Happy for him he sniped the shootout winner. He definitely deserved the result with his physical play tonight. Lots to work on this week as we get ready to travel to New Jersey Titans for two games next Saturday/Sunday.”

Northeast Generals Player Profile: Mason Joseph

For the Northeast Generals NA3HL group, going undefeated this far into the season requires not only strong depth up and down the lineup, but also depth in net . Mason Joseph is a big part of why Head Coach Daryl Locke is coaching another team primed to make a run at the Fraser Cup. The net minder is in his second year of junior hockey.

Locke had more to say on Joseph

“ Mason Joseph signed with us in the middle of NAHL camp. Coach Erikson and I were super impressed with the way he battles in the crease. He never gives up on a puck and has tremendous athletic ability. His mental ability to regroup after a goal is excellent. He’s a student of the game who makes mental notes on other teams players. There’s not a goalie that competes harder in practice than Mason. He’s a great teammate and locker room guy. When he steps in the rink he’s all business, which is the top quality I look for in a player. A very business like approach to his craft. He definitely has Tier 2 potential.His upside is very high and will definitely garner a lot of attention at the collegiate level.”

Northeast Generals Player Profile:Douglas Friberg

Photo Credit: Kelsey Lee-Violet Turtle Photography

For the Northeast Generals, they have a defense group built on two-way players that are physical in their own end, and responsible. One of the leaders of that group is Swedish defender Douglas Friberg. He is in his first year of North American Junior Hockey and has improved game over game. You will not find all of why Friberg is a Division One defender with growing interest, instead you have to watch him play and see how he makes the simple play, and does well to be responsible.

As Head coach Bryan Erikson said of Friberg “Douglas has improved a lot. He has made progress in his play away from the puck. He also has started to move the puck quicker. He can sling the puck back there and it’s great when he moves it fast. His feet were (and still are) a point of emphasis but he is getting quicker and more explosive with his stride. Still has work to do but we are very happy with his play. Needs to continue to add consistency to his play but he is trending in the correct direction.”

His play is improving, and Friberg is growing more accustomed to the North American game more and more each day. Look for his stat sheet to get more parallel with his growing familiarity with the game, as he is one of the key determininats with his back end work for how far this Generals team will go.

Northeast Generals: Week in review

This week presented the NAHL Generals an opportunity to get better through practice and development as they did not have any dames scheduled. Their NA3HL team played and won two games against Long Beach to remain undefeated, winning close games that again showed how well Head Coach Daryl Locke has his team running.

Weekend Highlights

Here are Locke’s thoughts on the two games played this week.

“ I thought Saturday’s game Matt Nuzzolilo had the biggest impact for us. His speed and compete level all over the ice was hard for them to contend. Same with Payton Felix. His speed all over pucks creates numerous offensive opportunities for his line mates. Mason Joseph was very good in net when called upon. We were scrambling a bit in front of him in the second period and he shut the door for us thankfully. In today’s game I thought we started slow again.D’Mar McCoy kept us in the game with some timely saves in the 1st period. Owen McNamee sparked the bench with his fight sticking up for his teammate, who was hit from behind. I think it was the deciding factor in the game as the boys were determined to keep the streak going. Tyler Ramm with 3 goals in 2 games is showing signs of breaking out. He and Caiden Hess made it hard on The Long Beach defense all weekend. Overall, a decent weekend but still plenty to work on this week. “

Given the positive work of the NA3HL team, they head to another week undefeated with players making their mark in junior hockey.

Northeast Generals Player Profile: Viktor Solokhin

For the NA3HL Northeast Generals, they were able to get the services of a player looking to play the North American Game. 17 year old Viktor Solohkin is a power winger with strong skating skills. He has come into the the NA3HL group and made an immediate impact. In four games, the six foot tall winger has put up four points, and he is earning time on Coach Daryl Locke’s first line. For a Generals team that has yet to lose, and has eyes on a return trip to the Fraser Cup in March, adding Viktor is like bringing talent upon talent to Attleboro.

He is a smooth skater with a keen hockey sense for where to be. In the long term, his shot has potential to be even better than it is, with a decent release already in his arsenal. If the St. Petersburg native can continue to grow under Locke’s and Bryan Erikson’s tutelage, then the sky is the limit for him in North America. He plays like someone who has been there before, and already has a growing following of his work. If he keeps up his torrid start with the Generals, then higher levels of junior hockey, and perhaps Division One College hockey could very well be in his future.

NA3HL General Manager Bryan Erikson had the following to say about one of the newer NA3HL Generals.

“Viktor has come in a little late due to visa issues but he obviously had been putting in work. He has a nice long fluid stride that will only get more powerful as he gets stronger. He is very big for his age and just need to add some muscle. But he knows how to play, where to be on the ice and how to execute Darryl’s game plan. Point wise I think he is a bit ahead of where we thought he was going to be but we are delighted with his quick assimilation to the North American style of hockey we play. I don’t think he has a real cap on his potential yet. He just needs to keep working and he will have a lot of opportunities at the next level of junior hockey.”

Check out the recruiting video Viktor put together to get a better idea of his strengths, and to see why the Generals are so happy for him to finally be in Attleboro.

Northeast Generals Player Profile: Jackson McCarthy

Photo Credit:Kelsey Lee-Violet Turtle Photography

Jackson McCarthy is a strong skating, right shot defenseman that committed to play for a Mercyhurst program on the rise early on this college hockey season. He will be heading to Erie in the 2023-2024 season according to Head Coach Bryan Erikson. For now, he is getting better leading a stronger group with a good mix of improved returners, and rookies making an impact at the NAHL level.

On McCarthy’s choice to play for the Lakers in two seasons, Erikson said ” I am ecstatic for Jackson. He is our first commit to Mercyhurst and we are very excited to solidify that relationship. He is committed for 2023-24 so he will hopefully be back next year and running the show on the backend. His improvement has been so fun to watch. He works so hard and deserves everything he has received. Things really picked up after his performance with Matt Dibble and Roc City this past summer. A lot of schools were in on him but Mercyhurst was the most aggressive. And they made a great offer and made the decision very easy for Jackson.” With his time playing for the champion organization of Roc City Elite, followed by his strong start to the season, a quick good offer seemed to make sense, and is a reward for the type of player and person McCarthy is.

In the Generals’ press release announcing McCarthy’s comittment, Erikson had, even more, to say ” Matt did an amazing job of identifying the potential in Jackson right after he got hired and made a great trade. Jackson came in and really outworked everyone. He is just an incredibly hard worker. We were familiar with him and his game having played down the street at the prestigious Mount St. Charles school but he was an even better person than advertised. Just a phenomenal kid that works his tail off. He beats me to the rink most days. I’ll come in on a weekend off day and there he is working in the skills center, in the gym, getting extra ice. Anything he can do to get better he does. Jackson and his work ethic put himself in a position where he had a ton of interest. Mercyhurst really stepped up and made a great offer and Jackson was extremely excited to accept. I know Eric Progen who runs our Defense has put in a lot of work with Jackson. But it’s all on Jackson for listening and working hard. We started to see a lot of his hard work pay off this summer during the Chowder Cup playing for Roc City. He was named D man of the tournament and put on a show. Really took a huge step forward and that has carried into the beginning of this year. Excited for this step for Jackson and getting back to work on his development.” For the rest of the season, look for McCarthy to keep leading the rear guard and earning key minutes as the Generals look to earn a playoff spot this season, and help his teammates get offers to Division One schools as he has. The Generals are better for McCarthy’s play, and the Lakers see his potential and have bought into what he will bring them. McCarthy has the rest of this year, and next year to keep developing and get ready to play for the Lakers.

Northeast Generals Player Profile: Landon Kolnik

Photo Credit: Kelsey Lee-Violet Turtle Photography

Earlier this season, Bryan Erikson offered a unique background to Landon Kolnik, his third line center. Kolnik plays on Erikson’s energy line featuring Joe Schubert and Kyle Schroder.

Of Kolnik himself Erikson said Hear Erikson’s explanation on what lead to Kolnik coming back after being cut “We self assess a lot. We had a divided scout room about Landon. And I was on the no side. But that night I went back and rewatched some games of camp and I realized that we made a mistake. So instead of ignoring the mistake we decided to try to fix it. I called Landon expecting he would say no. But I was glad he accepted my apology and came back. The boys love Koko! He plays hard and the right way. He has become a player we really rely on.”

On tape Erikson said the following, “ well, he’s an undersized import forward without great speed. But on the tape I realized he was just a very smart hockey player. We loved his grit but sometimes at camp you don’t see the IQ. And he just made so many small plays, area passes, sneaky shot. He just is a very good player.”
