BEVERLY, Mass. – The Endicott club men's roller hockey team saw eight members earn National Collegiate Roller Hockey Association (NCRHA) All-Tournament Team postseason honors, as announced by the organization earlier this week.
Jonathan Waring (Farmington Hills, Mich.) and Stephen Richetelli (Hamden, Conn.) headlined the group as the duo received tournament Most Valuable Player (MVP) and Most Valuable Goaltender (MVG) honors for their efforts at nationals from April 10-14, respectively.
Along with those honors, Waring and Richetelli were joined on the NCRHA All-Tournament First Team with Matt Kaski (Sandwich, Mass.).
The Gulls were also represented by Corey Eisenband (Larchmont, N.Y.) on the All-Tournament Second Teams, while Cam Bleck (Lake Forest, Ill.), Caeden Dillman (Andover, Mass.), Brian Harder (Delmar, N.Y.), and Luke Jorgensen (Pawling, N.Y.) all received All-Tournament Team Honorable Mentions accolades for their play in the tournament.
MOST VALUABLE PLAYER/ALL-TOURNAMENT FIRST TEAM
Jonathan Waring | So. | D | Farmington Hills, Mich.
Waring appeared in all seven games at nationals and led the Gulls offensively with 12 goals and 20 assists for 32 points. Overall in the tournament, he averaged 1.7 goals and 2.9 assists per game. Meanwhile, the NCRHA Tournament MVP honors for Waring were the second such honor for the sophomore this season as he was named MVP of the Eastern College Roller Hockey Association (ECRHA) Regional Tournament earlier this year (March 3, 2019).
MOST VALUABLE GOALTENDER/ ALL-TOURNAMENT FIRST TEAM
Stephen Richetelli | So. | G | Hamden, Conn.
In the seven games Ritchelli played, he went a perfect 7-0-0 as he totaled 93 saves (13.3 per game), and only gave up 11 goals during the tournament (1.5 per game). Much like Waring, Richetelli earned ECRHA honors earlier this year as the sophomore picked up ECRHA Division III Goaltender of the Year accolades.
NCRHA ALL-TOURNAMENT FIRST TEAM
Matt Kaski | Jr. | F | Sandwich, Mass.
Kaski had a strong tournament as he totaled 15 goals and two assists for 17 points. In the tournament, he averaged 2.1 goals per game to help pace the Gulls offense. This honor is the second of the season for Kaski as the junior forward won the ECRHA skills competition for Division III earlier this spring.
NCRHA ALL-TOURNAMENT SECOND TEAM
Corey Eisenband | Gr. | F | Larchmont, N.Y.
Eisenband played a solid tournament to earn All-Tournament Second Team honors as he scored five goals and 14 assists for 19 points. Eisenband made sure to get his teammates involved each game as he averaged two assists per game. Eisenband's NCRHA All-Tournament Second Team honor adds another bullet to Eisenband's resume this season, which was highlighted by his ECRHA Division III Player of the Year accolades that he received earlier this season.
