Prospect Reports 

Ferris State recruit Corey Mackin (Pennsylvania) is an absolute offensive machine for Coquitlam. He leads the league with 30-23-53 in 31 games.

The league’s #2 leading scorer is UNH recruit Liam Blackburn, followed by former Millbrook standout and Union recruit Brett Supinski. There’s a lot to like about Supinski’s game and he’s really taken it to another level with Coquitlam this year.

Another former New England Prep star having a strong season is former Berkshire standout Craig Puffer. He sits at 16th in the league with 19-14-33 in 30 games with Chilliwack.

RPI recruit Evan Tironese came into the season as one of the BCHL’s most highly regarded offensive weapons and didn’t disappoint, racking up 32 points in 19 games, but has missed some time with an injury the past month.

(D) Charlie Pelnik (6’5-190) , a defenseman from North Carolina who originally committed to North Dakota as a 16 year old started the season with Cowichan Valley and is now with Langley. Pelnik’s had a strange career since committing at such a young age. He went from North Carolina to Shattuck St. Mary’s, spent one season with the U-16 team, then spent a year in the USHL with Fargo appearing in 24 games. In 2011, when he committed to North Dakota, Pelnik was one of the hottest prospects in the US. He was taken 10th overall in the USHL Futures Draft and in the 7th round by Plymouth in the OHL Draft.
