Keeping An Eye On Eddie Nolan

An article in today’s Boston Globe on the recent Beantown Classic tournament in Marlborough had the following:

Eddie Nolan is hoping he made scouts take notice last week. A 6-foot defenseman who will skate for the Foxborough-based South Shore Kings of the EJHL this season, Nolan suited up in green and yellow for the Bombers team last week, and scored one goal in five games. He credited Bombers coach Paul Merritt, a scout for the Buffalo Sabres, for providing constructive criticism.

“Today during the game, he was pointing out mistakes I was making and told me how to correct them,’’ said Nolan, who graduated from Boston College High this spring and is looking to play at a Division 1 school, possibly the University of Massachusetts Amherst. “Everyone here knows the game and knows what each player does well, but learning how to improve is important too.’’

The Globe also called Nolan a player to watch in the Catholic Conference last year.

He also made the MSHCA All-Star Game this past season.

    The kid that I would love to see Toot go after is Tyler Kelleher from Longmeadow. I saw him play there as a freshman last season, and he was the best player on the ice. He’s playing at Deerfield in the fall, and while he doesn’t havve great size, I think he’s D1 material for sure. He apparently had a huge performance at a selects tournament this summer, so his name is going to be out there now.
    Can Cahoon bring him in though? I’m curious.


    • Yeah. Looks like he’s already on the radar of some recruiting sites. Would be great to keep the local Western Mass kids.
