More than 300 youth players set for New England’s premier development camp
Originating in 2019, the “Sixty Camp” has put a main focus on creating an environment for players to test their skills among the best of their peers. The main focus of that first camp was the 2006 birth year. Since then, the event has grown exponentially to include multiple birth years. Players from the 2007-2011 age range will participate in this weekend’s showcase. Participants can expect a four-day event filled with on-ice drills, skills and competition. Between sessions, players are exposed to off-ice training and treated to informational presentations regarding college hockey, academics and nutrition, among other topics.
The camp’s professional coaching staff has included names in the past such as:
Jerry Keefe – Northeastern University
Paul Pearl – Cushing Academy
Mike Souza – University of New Hampshire
Adam Nicholas – Director of Hockey Development, Montreal Canadiens
Rod Braceful – Amateur Scout, Chicago Blackhawks
These esteemed coaches will be behind the benches, running practices, and conducting seminars for players and families. There will be no shortage of talent at this year’s camp. Some of the best youth players from this season include:
Van Martin – Lovell Academy
Hugo Daniel – North Yarmouth Academy
Tyler Clouthier – Ice Mavericks Hockey
Jason Millet – South Kent Selects
Garret Glaser – Shattuck-St. Mary’s
Glaser was a consistent source of strong goaltending in net for Shattuck this past season. He went 20-10-2 while compiling a 2.52 goals-against average and .913 save percentage with three shutouts. His knack to come up in big games backstopped his club to a championship appearance at USA Hockey Nationals in April. Millet built up on a strong first season with the Selects by upping his point total from 28 to 43. The solid 5-foot-10 defenseman knows how to add offense from the blue line. With an imposing 170 lbs. frame as well, opponents have a tough task of finding any space on the ice against him.
Danick St. Pierre – Seacoast Performance Academy
Blake Cash – Seacoast Performance Academy
Nick Sumner – Brooks School
Ryan Poirier – New Hampshire Avalanche
Sully Wilmont – Idaho Junior Steelheads
Parker Sockseth – Seacoast Performance Academy
St. Pierre finished the season second overall on SPA in total points with 86 (29G, 57A). Cash compiled seven goals and 21 points as well for the team.
Richie Janniello – Long Island Gulls
Brice Glanz – Windy City Storm
Connor Wright – Middlesex School
Dante Kader – Islanders Hockey Club
James Cappozi – New Jersey Rockets
Enzo Levy – Seigneurs des Mille-Îles
Blake Ward – Boston Jr. Eagles
Mason Proulx – Seacoast Performance Academy
Roan Wilson – Top Gun
Levy and Proulx both put up solid showings at the U13 World Selects Invitational in Chamonix, France. Levy recorded three goals and seven points for the Eastern U.S. Selects squad. He also averaged close to two points per game for Seigneurs des Mille-Îles, where he finished with 27 goals and 58 points in 30 games. Proulx joined Levy as a member of the Selects squad at the WSI, where he nabbed three goals and six points.
