Prospect Pulse: 1992’s and 1993’s (Part V)

Andy Beck-D-(1992) Pittsburgh Viper Stars (6’3, 190)– Big, vocal kid with a mean streak. Quarterbacks the power play but is prone to taking dumb penalties.

AJ English-D-(1992) Rochester Rattlers (6’3, 185)– An awkward skater but big and mean. No one really bothered going near the net when he was on the ice. Makes a good first pass and thinks the game well.

Michael Vilardo-F-(1992) Team Illinois (6’0, 160)– A skilled center who can control the play. Makes something happen on every shift and is very good with the puck. Excellent vision.

Dan Humes-F-(1993) Pittsburgh Viper Stars (5’10, 165)– Skill and speed to burn. Isn’t as big as listed in the program, but this doesn’t seem to stop him. Will go into the corners and play in traffic.

Darren Johnston-F-(1993) Pittsburgh Viper Stars (5’9, 170)– A mini-Sean Avery type. Hits everything and gets under the other team’s skin. Seems to relish his role.

James Peplinski-F-(1993) Victory Honda (6’2, 182)– Big centerman who is good on faceoffs and plays a smart game. Is solid down low and can create off the rush.

Cody Hunt-F-(1992) Victory Honda (6’0, 165)– Smart player with sick moves. Very good on draws, smooth skater who plays a confident game. Doesn’t quit on plays and is quick in transition. Easily my favorite player at the tourney. Keep your eye on him.

Harrison Civin-G-(1992) Wheatfield Blades (5’9, 160)– Smaller goalie with quick reflexes. Anticipates the play well and has good lateral movement. Always square to the shooter and is feisty.

Paul Steinig-D (1992) Wheatfield Blades (5’9, 165)– Shifty little defender with good speed. Big hitter and is lethal in open ice. Plays a good positional game.

Jack Ridgway-D (1992) Victory Honda (5’10, 150)– Excellent puck moving defenseman. Makes smart decisions and moves well.
