Division II Second Team

The following players are recognized for exceptional seasons at the Division II 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 DII's First Team.

F Ben Solin, Jr. (Daniel Hand)
Solin had just as good of a year of any player in the state and could very easily be sitting on the first team. The Phillips-Exeter bound junior finished the regular season with (32 G, 28 A). He also added on 9 goals during Hand's improbable title run.

F Jake King, Jr. (Suffield-Granby-WL)
Without a conference and hidden away from the hockey hotbeds it's hard to hear about the on ice exploits of King, a talented Wildcat junior. King finished the year with 47 points (26 G, 21 A) and lead a young SGWL team that should be strong next year.

F Dan Roberts, Sr. (Newington-Berlin)
Roberts came on board last year for Newington-Berlin and made a big splash right away helping the Indians win a DIII title. This year, his value was immeasurable with the co-op exploring the DII ranks. Roberts finished the year with 46 points (22 G, 24 A).

D Brian O'Connell, Sr. (East Catholic)
O'Connell was a rock for East Catholic this past season on the back end. On a team with hit or miss stars each night, O'Connell was the one constant for the Eagles and their ability to land the #1 overall seed in the DII tournament. He was able to chip in on the offensive end with 25 points (5 G, 20 A).

D Hunter Byram, Sr. (BCR)
Byram had a great final year for BCR bolstering a near impenetrable defense most of the way. Byram added on 25 points (8 G, 17 A) of his own aiding the co-op in their first season at the Division II level.

G AJ Brink, Jr. (Branford)
The coach's kid was as reliable as he could be this year between the pipes for an SCC/SWC D2 Champion Hornets squad. Brink finished the year with a 2.09 GAA and a .933 save percentage. He's poised for a stellar senior season.
