All-CTHSHockey DIII Second Team

The following players are recognized for exceptional seasons at the Division III level. Keep in mind these players are selected based on regular season play not post season performance. Due to number of teams and the talent spread, I've decided to select two teams of 3 Forwards, 2 Defensemen and 1 Goalie.  Check back tomorrow for DIII's First Team.

Shepaug's Loya
F Andrew Loya, Jr. (Shepaug-Litchfield-Nonnewaug)
Loya poured out a 24 goal junior season and finished with 35 points (24 G, 11 A) in total. On a Shepaug team lead by himself and fellow junior Christian Stuart, it was easy for teams to key the pair. Loya, despite being circled on most opposition's game plans, had a great year for a five win Shepaug team.
F Jarod Florian, So. (Hall-Southington)
After a fantastic freshman campaign, Florian showed no slowing this year, leading the co-op in points with 36 (19 G, 17 A) and goals. Florian excelled in all phases including some impressive penalty killing. 
F Parker Evans, Jr. (NFI)
The speedy Evans doesn't have the pure point totals (17 G, 5 A) that many other first and second teamers have but with the spread out production of NFI, it's tough to stand out. Evans, a pure goal scorer was able to pot 17 of them this year. 
D Justin Gagnon, Sr. (EO Smith-Tolland)
As dependable and foreboding as they come. The Bucks' senior D-man had a great career for the co-op out of Uconn. His numbers will never jump off the page but his play, paired with fellow Defenseman Aaron Lassow's was as good as can be all year for EO in their title pursuit.
D Matt Sabia, Sr. (Newtown)
Sabia brings a more offensive flair to the position while not losing anything on the back end. The senior finished with 19 points (4 G, 15 A) and a career +73 plus/minus. While Lovorn dazzled, Sabia did all the small things that go unnoticed. The captain was a key reason his team is a state champ.
G Ryan Dobos, Sr. (NFI)
Dobos is arguably the most talented goalie at the D3 level. He finished the year with a 2.12 goals against average, three shutouts and seven games with over 25 saves.
