Has now moved to Guildford...

U12s: 2gp 14g 7a 21pts
U14s: 4gp 1g 3a 4pts

These are his U12 stats 2004-Now...

28gp 111g 30a 141pts

This kid is only 10/11!?! That is amazing!

Another one to keep an eye on is Brendan Perlini. Currently playing for Guildford U12s:

11gp 36g 24a 60pts
I used to be coached by ex-NHL player and Guildford Flams Fred Perlini. Cant believe Brendan is that old, when I last saw him he was about 4. Good to hear Brett Perlini will be in the OHL soon, was very talented when he came along to our training sessions. Is Scott Conway the son of the Conway who played (may be wrong) for Basingstoke and Newcastle in the 90's? I remember Fred Perlinis wifes brother was something like Kevin Conway and played over here. Just curious if those kids are both from the same family.

He most certainly is.

A little update on the Bracknell boys

Nathan Craze
GP: 41
Mins: 2315.40
Shots: 1270
Goals: 100
SO's: 6
GAAv: 2.59
Sv%: 92.13

This is Nathan's first season as a starter at this level. It's been a major stepping stone after impressing as back-up with Belfast last season and he has earned the right to be called a #1. This past weekend saw him post his 6th shut out of the season (28 saves) as well as securing the EPL title.

IMHO, Nathan needs one more season at this level, before stepping up to EIHL level as a starter. I think that in a few years time, he will be good enough for ECHL level. Whether as a starter or not, I don't know. For those who remember Joe Watkins at Bakersfield, the two are of a similar standard, playing in the same league, for two top teams, but Nathan is still on his way up.



Jamie Line
Pl: 37
G: 4
A: 4
Pts: 4

Jamie is a coach's dream! He just gets on with the job, works hard and does what he is told! His biggest problem is his stature. He's short and nippy. This doesn't stop him taking the body though, which he has done more this season. He has finished the season well, looking a little more like a recognised senior player within the team. In all honesty, I think Jamie would struggle to ever make it to ECHL level. That would be the very best I think he could do, but his size might hinder him.


Lewis Day
Pl: 18
G: 0
A: 5
Pts: 5

Lewis came to the Bees this season, but then decided to concentrate on his studdies. Lewis is another hard worker, but in truth, he is not likely to see any career in North America


There are a couple of others to look out for in the Bees line-up.

Shaun Thompson - Age 19
Born 07/13/1987
Forward
Shoots right

Pl: 40
G: 23
A: 25
Pts: 48

Over a point per game, for a 19 year old in this league is pretty good going and it's often easy to forget that Shaun is still a junior. People have mentioned Oliver Broniman as a good prospect. He is 20 years old, playing for last seasons champions and has only scored 23+18. Shaun is a go-to player in every sense. He works his butt off, has great hands and knows where the net is. He stands 4th in goals on a championship team. If handled correctly, Shaun is a great prospect and could be a good standard ECHL player

Ryan Watt - Age 17
Born 12/08/1989
Forward
Shoots right

GP: 42
G: 11
A: 8
Pts: 18

Watty has been a revalation on the third line this season. Joining the Bees as a 16 year old, not a great deal was expected of him on the third line, but few third line players in this league will see double figures for goals. Another with a great work ethic, Ryan also has great hands and a good hockey brain and has scored some highlight goals this season. This boy IMHO, has enough to be another good quality ECHL player, if he makes the move accross the pond soon enough!

Sam Oakford - Age 16
Born 08/08/1990
Defence
Shoots right

GP: 31
G: 1
A: 3
Pts: 4

Another coaches player, Sam is quiet and gets on with what he is told to do. Sam has just had his rookie season at senior level and was expected to be sitting on the bench for most of it. However, after showing up well in early games, the coach showed good confidence in him and gave him ice time on a more regular basis. After the Bees sacked their captain, mid-season, Sam stepped up and took on a regular shift as if he had been there for years! At 16, he already stands at 6' tall and is not intimidated by anyone. He is not an overly-physical player, but will put the body in when needed. Sam plays with his head and knows his angles and his position well. If there was any justice, this boy would be playing in North America next season. If handled correctly, he should be an AHL defenceman of the future

Reviewing how our British prospects are doing..

Overagers

No great breakthroughs. Matt Myers, Mark Richardson, Tom Pease and Dave Phillips solidified themselves as moderately good EIHLers going to the World Championships with Team GB. Adam Walker improved noticably and probably deserved more consideration for Team GB. Sadly, others like Jamieson, Lee Richardson and Kevin Phillips are not continuing to develop. Some young guys broke into the league - Carlon, Lewis, Beattie, Dalgleish, Towe and Dowd, but limited ice time restricted their negligable impact.

Towe and Dowd came up from the EPL where Oliver Bronnimann had a dominant season with 69 pts in 58 games. Nathan Craze also had a strong year and deserves a team in the EIHL. Adam Brittle could also move up.

Of the overseas guys, Shields has entered the ECHL playoffs although I hear he's injured. Danny Taylor (G) has had a tough time establishing himself there with few chances and unflattering stats. Reynolds and Greener havent had outstanding years in somewhat obscure leagues. John Dewar is the best prospect of this sub-group. He ripped up the BCHL as a 19 year old and it remains to be seen what he can do at a higher level. Blair Daly, a Scottish goalie is one to watch. With all that talent, they really need to re-integrate the Fife Flyers and Scottish hockey back into the British leagues.

2007 Class

A disappointing year for most. Danny Wood did not play many games at first (injury?) but really took off in the second half, becoming his team's top goalscorer. 41 pts in 36 games in a respected hockey program merits him as a potential late round pick in the NHL draft this year. The only other possible is Martin Clarkson (G) but I think its much more unlikely. He became the top goalie in his NA program and is the best of the five Brits, two of whom did not crack the team. Ben O'Connor has been a spare part, playing only 17 games in the OHL. Mark Garside has done pretty well for Edinburgh in the Elite league with 10 points in 47 games. If he can find a goalscoring touch, could be one to watch next year.

2008 Class

A lineup with some potential. Tom Duggan led his SSM team in points and Brett Perlini dominated the NOJHL, often playing against older prospects. He is sure to be in the majors next year and those two guys are potential NHL prospects, although 2008 is said to be deep. Ferrarra and Neil reached the Elite league with Nottingham and can hopefully build on this next year. Davies and others have done well in the EPL. Aaron Nell - where he goes next year will be a big year for his development but he had a great year in Okanagan. Iain Bowie had a surprising impact in Edinburgh, collecting 6 pts in 19 games.

2009 + Class

Steven Lee has had a full year in the EIHL, impressive for such a young guy. Hopefully he gains more ice time and follows Dave Phillips to bigger things. The next 18 months will determine whether he's a NHL / AHL level prospect.

Jack Prince is really making a name for himself. First with 46 goals in 15 games at U16 level and then stepping up to lead the U19's as well with 40 goals in 13 games! He leads a cadre of four U16's from the North with Richard Haggar, Tom Squires and Robert Farmer all scoring heavily in both the U16's and U19's this year. These guys are the next generation.

Brendan Perlini stands out with his U12 numbers (72 pts in 14 games). However Scott Conway scored a ridiculous 49 goals in five U12 games before stepping up another level. Of the U14's, Aaron Connolly had a great time with 55 goals in 14 games. Only Adam Harding was near his level with 58 in 11 games. I dont know how old these guys are but it will be interesting to see how they get on.

GB's Under 18's struggling so far in the WC's. Beaten 7-2 by Norway and 6-1 by Japan. Most players are born 1989 but half of GB's squad is 1990. Although Nell and the Lake Placid guys have come over, they could have used Wood and Duggan from SSM, Perlini from Soo, and others like Ferrara and Oakford.

Their main hope of avoiding relegation is a match against the improving Poles, otherwise the experience the 1990's got will go to waste.

Adam Walker signed a new deal with the Manchester Phoenix yesterday. Excellent news for Phoenix fans. He had strong finish to the season.

Jack Prince was doing really well for the senior Lions - he scored 9 goals in 3 games, including 5 against Sheffield!

Brett Perlini looked really good out there with the Soo Thunderbirds... had I known he was flying the UK flag I would've kept you all updated during the season.

Good to hear he is doing well. Will he play OHL next year?

And whether he is actually 'flying the UK flag' i am not sure (is anyone) but he was british [born? and] trained. So he would definately be elegible for the GB national team(s).

Just read in a blog that Brett Perlini has committed to Michigan State for 2008. If true that's very big news. I'm not sure where he will play for 2007/08 though?? He cant play in the OHL and the NOJHL is surely too easy for him now.

If he goes to the USHL, Ohio Blue Jackets have drafted him along with Jimmy Hayes, a star 2008 prospect as well as Tommy Cross and CJ Severyn from the US NTDP.

I noticed the Junior Blue Jackets had him on their roster...

Found this on that same blog place:

Brett Perlini has given a verbal commitment to MSU this means no other school is allowed to contact him any more Brett still has not decided between the ohl Greyhounds and NCAA MSU . The Perlini family has only narrowed down his school options because there are many NCAA universities looking at him. MSU has always had the inside track on Brett because of the coaching staff which has shown a considerable amount of time in the Sault watching Brett.

Perlini has played for England teams before but it's worrying how much is being made of him being a 'local' player for the Greyhounds with his family there. On the flip side, I know other GB juniors have named him and Tom Duggan as future British players to watch out for.

Having a choice is great for him. I read another comment somewhere that the Greyhounds snubbed him instead of playing him in the OHL this year and some posters to that blog echo that saying they blew it. The college route is probably better for him - MSU is a strong team.

Interesting to read in Stewart Robert's blog about the England U16 team winning a tournament that included national teams from Latvia, Switzerland and Austria.

The foursome of Jack Prince, Richard Haggar, Tom Squires and Robert Farmer were in the squad. Farmer stood out as one of the best forwards in the tournament with 6 goals and 9 points. Haggar and Prince provided some good support with 6 points each and Squires didnt seem to produce much. Thomas Murdy, the goalie, should be added to the list of names to watch as he apparently had a very good tournament.

But they are for the future. 2008 has two prospects that may well be drafted in Tom Duggan and Brett Perlini. However its a tough year with a deep and competitive draft. If anyone can help me in keeping track of where the players have gone this upcoming season, it would be appreciated.
