Under the Lights: Area hockey players excited for draft

HOCKEY RANKINGS

Several local standouts made the final NHL Central Scouting ratings for the 2014 entry draft.

Joey Dudek from Pinkerton/Kimball Union is 109th among North American skaters, Tyler Bird of Andover/KUA is 112th and Bobo Carpenter of North Reading and Austin Prep is 119th.

Joey Daccord of North Andover and Cushing is 14th among North American goalies.

LARRY AND THE FAMILY STONE

Foster’s Daily Democrat had an interesting story about Dover (N.H.) High grad Larry Stone, who was a coach and/or AD for 43 years, mostly at Taft School, and his four accomplished coaching children.

Harvard’s Katey Stone is the winningest coach in NCAA women’s hockey history. She became the first female coach for the U.S. National Team. UMass coach Mike Stone has 692 college baseball wins. Kelly Stone is the AD at Convent of the Sacred Heart in Connecticut. Jimmy Stone is the longtime football coach/baseball coach/A.D. at prep power Blair (N.J.) Academy.

SONS OF SYRACUSE

The Jamesville-Dewitt High basketball team included four sons of Syracuse men’s basketball coaches: Jack and Jim Boeheim Jr. (head coach Jim), Adrian Autry (assistant Adrian) and Michael Hopkins (assistant Mike). Boeheim’s daughter Jamie is a rising star in the girls program.

HOCKEY AND HEALING

In the where are they now department, ex-women’s Olympic hockey player (and 1991 Eagle-Tribune field hockey MVP) Tricia Dunn-Luoma of Derry is a massage therapist in Minnesota.

HIGHLY-TOUTED

NHnotebook.com had a story touting Chyna Bullen, a 5-10 forward from Exeter and Portsmouth Christian Academy, as the top eighth grader in the state and said she’ll be attending Central Catholic.

That’s good news for Central. Better news might be her dad is a well known restaurateur who owns Clyde’s Cupcakes in Exeter!
