5 MAR 2017 | BY FRANK SCARPACI
Congratulations goes out to Florida Eels Elite players Clayton Boyd, Zac Boyle and Nolan Greene for being selected to participated in the most prestigious post season hockey showcase in North America: The Beantown Spring Classic. The Beantown Spring Classic is a three day event taking place this Wednesday, March 8th-Friday, March 10th with the intent of showcasing the best players from east coast in a small event setting for the purpose of giving the NHL scouts and College recruiters the best forum to evaluate the top talent from the past year in one setting. The tournament features three boys divisions: A NHL Draft Division, A College Division and A NHL Pre Draft Division.
Zac, Clayton and Nolan will all compete and be showcased in the College Division. In the College Division, Six teams will be selected and will play three games over three days. Each team will consist of 10 forwards, 6 defense and 2 goalies. Players such as Zac, Clayton and Nolan have been selected from the USPHL, EHL, Midget AAA and Prep/High school programs. Players’ selection for this division was made based on winter coach nominations and selections as well with the input of NHL scouting partners and college coaches. This division is made up of high end players who did not make Central scouting midterm report but were on it before and players who are close to getting a D-1 college deal done but have not done so yet. Age eligible players are born between 1996-1999. NHL scouts will coach all teams.
We wish Clayton, Zac and Nolan the best of luck. We trust they will compete extremely well as they have for the Eels throughout the past 3+ seasons and that they surely demonstrate to the college coaches and scouts that they are outstanding prospects and candidates for their program in the Fall 2017.
