Young hockey team primed for success

Prior to this season, Los Alamos High School hockey coach Kevin Brake believed this season could be a bit of a rebuilding year. The team graduated a large number of seniors after last season, and was relying on a new group of players to step in and fill big roles.

After playing three games this season, Brake no longer believes his team is going through a rebuilding year. With a perfect 3-0 start, and 25 goals scored so far, his sights are set as high as ever. 

“What I like is that we are getting effort from across the board, we are getting contributions across the board,” Brake said.

One of the things that encourages him the most about this team is that the scoring has come from all over the roster, not just one of his forward lines. In fact, the scoring has been incredibly balanced. Four players lead the team with four goals scored, Benjamin Rees, John Charles, Ray Guffee and Sean Mitchell.

Brake has no doubt his team has enough talent to compete with any team on its schedule. The question he has is whether the team will show enough composure and maturity to stay in games when things don’t look good.

“If they are willing to outwork the other team, we can be very, very good,” Brake said.
