CT Wolf Pack U16's WIN the East Coast Early Bird Showcase!
North Andover, MA - U16 Final -- Conn. Wolf Pack National U16's 4, Wolf Pack Full Season U16's 1
Wolf Pack forward, Matt Gosiewski, who scored two goals -- one a deadly accurate slapper from the left point, and the other a snipe from the right faceoff circle – was the standout in this one. Gosiewski, a 6’3”, 200 lb. forward who can also man the point, is a strong skater with soft hands and, as he showed today, an excellent shot. Also, Cameron Donaldson, who played for the Dallas Stars U16 Team last year, scored the Wolf Pack’s first goal, on an assist from UNH recruit Eric Esposito. Defenseman Craig Uyeno, who played for the Don Mills Flyers Midget Minors last year, scored the final Wolf Pack goal. Wolf Pack goaltender Peter Negron, was flawless. Negron, who was one of the top goalies at this summer’s Select 16s in Buffalo, played for Bergen Catholic last season.
