Scouting Reports

Kreider: The repeat sophomore at Phillips Andover Academy was Prep school hockey's best kept secret. Chris finished the season with 26 goals and 41 pts. A potential early rounds pick in the 2009 NHL draft, Chris possesses extaordinary explosiveness and strong skating skills. He is smooth and confident with the puck and is a legitimate danger everytime he is on the ice.
