A closer look at each of the 20 teams participating at the 2021 World Selects Trophy.
The ‘20 in 20’ series takes a deep dive into each of the 20 teams competing at the historic World Selects Trophy in Nashville, Tennessee on June 28th. This 15U tournament is set to feature the best players in the age group from around the world with players from the U.S., Canada and Europe. Today, we take a closer look at Southeast Elite Hockey (SEH).
SOUTHEAST ELITE HOCKEY
Based out of Florida, Southeast Elite’s mission is to give an opportunity for players who have a similar passion and work ethic to train and compete together. The program provides a chance for all players, from beginners to professionals, to thrive in the sport of hockey. Recent youth prospects like Gavin Brindley (2004), Seamus Casey (2004) and Michael Chambre (2005) have been amongst some of Southeast’s first wave of talent to make the jump to the USHL and U.S. National Team Development Program (USNTDP).
SEH has 2021 programming at 10 different age groups from 2003s to 2012s, and the ‘06 group is loaded with talent from the Sunshine State.
Florida Alliance goaltender B.J. Riccardi is an efficient, calm and technically sound presence in between the pipes. His mental strength allows him to maintain a high level of play in all situations. Alliance teammate Daniel Berehowsky is the son of nine-season NHL veteran Drake Berehowsky, and the youngster has a fantastic game of his own. Daniel is a hard-working and physical forward with a knack for finding the back of the net. Tyler Kedzo and Michael Barron add even more weapons up front for Southeast Elite. Kedzo played the 2020-21 season with the No. 19-ranked Los Angeles Jr. Kings. He’s a skilled center with quick hands and great vision while Barron brings a ton of energy and high hockey IQ from his experience with Victory Honda.
