The Varsity Jr. Bills will start their season trying to defend their Top Hat Championship. The Jr. Bills have just begun their practices and will be looking early to find player combinations for the regular season.
The Jr. Bills have a veteran group of defensemen with Seniors Matt Hohl and Jack Wachter along with Juniors Christian Berger and Justin Jacoby returning. Senior Dominic Skroska has landed a varsity roster spot and Sophomores Bob Lockwood and Bryan Gund will be logging a lot of ice.
The forward group has a veteran presence with Seniors Joe Winkelmann, Trevor White, Kevin Einig and Nick Corker along with Juniors Henry Wagner and Gabe Schwartz. Senior veteran defenseman Steven Pawlow has been seen skating at forward in the early going and that could be an interesting move to upgrade the forward depth. Look for Seniors Chip Holmes and Louie Perotti to give the forwards an extremely talented veteran group. Sophomores Jack Hazelton and Patrick Simoncic have cracked the varsity line up. Juniors Ian Carden and Nathan Pawlow, Sophomore Trey Lyons and Freshman Matt Warnecke will be gaining skating some varsity games as well.
Goaltending has a veteran look too with Juniors Brendan Rasch and Dylan Bak returning. Look for Sophomore Cole Jansky to fill in as well.
New Head Coach Jack Behan is pleased with what he has seen so far. "I really like the enthusiasm of the team. The energy level is top notch. Great signs so far include an unselfish willingness of Senior Steven Pawlow to change positions to improve the team. That type of unselfish attitude is what wins championships. I also like the competition we have for playing time which will only improve the entire team. The Top Hat Tournament will be a great time for the coaching staff to learn the players, to try some new things and to create the culture needed to be successful throughout the season."
