Yameen twins four-year cornerstones for Methuen hockey

Yameen twins four-year cornerstones for Methuen hockey

(Continued)

The two continued to stand out last season, with Nick scoring six goals and seven assists, playing alongside four-time Eagle-Tribune All-Star Matt Bauchman for the third straight season, while Dylan paced the defense.

Following that season, both Yameen brothers were named captains for the 2013-14 season.

“It’s really an honor being a leader and a captain now,” said Dylan. “I have always worked hard to set the right example on the ice and off.

“It’s also great to be a captain next to my brother. It’s always been interesting playing hockey with him, but it has been fun. Sure we compete. We try to see who can shoot harder and who can hit harder. But we have a great chemistry on the ice. We always know where the other one is out there. He is my best friend.”

That chemistry has been on display this season. The brothers have combined for five goals in the Rangers’ two victories.

“It seems like they have set each other up for just about every goal,” said George. “There isn’t a huge rivalry between the two, but they are extremely competitive against opponents. ”

This season appears to be the end of the line for the two brothers. Dylan is planning to continue his hockey career in prep school, his first choice being Bridgton Academy, while Nick is looking to focus on college. So they are hoping to make some special memories before the season ends.

“We want to win some games and make the state tournament again,” said Dylan. “Coach (Egan) said we could shave his head if we make it. But we also want to teach the kids and enjoy a last season together.”
