This Weekend….

DITR does it best to let the stats tell the story and the rest is up to the scouts and coaches. Since this is just a “slice” of the players stats for the year, they are subject to statistical anomalies because of the small sample and accuracy of reporting of the statistics. But all statistics tell a story and the analysis is an attempt to reconfirm the players we know are premier and allow the scouts and coaches to find the “Diamonds In The Rough” (DITR) that might make their recruiting year complete and help find players that might be slightly off-radar. DITR Guide Services try to help these DITR players get on radar and help them with the process to find opportunities if the families are interested.

MASS Midget 2013 Ratings

….with the Mass Midget Select playing the last games of the season this weekend we are going to re-release the MASS Midgets 2013 DITR rankings (based on the Mass Midgets stats). Soon after the 2014 stats become final, we will post those rankings as well.

Greater New England Prep School 2013-2014 Ratings

….with the Prep School season just around the corner, we are re-releasing the rankings from last year to give the scouts and coaches the “heads up” on who might be worth taking a look at that might be ready for that “jump” or might be slightly off radar. We give more confirmation on the players that everyone is watching AND those DITR players to help in the recruiting conversations.

Minnesota High School 2013-2014 Ratings

…..we are diligently working on last years season’s ratings but it is a massive job, with the amount of players, teams and rich statistical availability of the information, the analysis will be more comprehensive with DITRPIG (Presence In Game) analysis on top of the traditional DITR analysis. We look to release by the weekend of Nov.7th – 9th, just in time for the MA and New England Midget Nationals qualifying weekend to give you plenty to look at while you are sitting all weekend in the rinks watching great midget hockey.

LOOK for DITR to have an exciting announcement or two in the following weeks as well…..


Musings from Day 1 of Prep Cup – 2001s

prep cup

Follow the tourney scores @ECCTournaments on twitter, I am taking license with their posts on the recaps, but I am sure the

First of all, talent level overall was very good, and attendance of the prep coaches was a little light in Lawrence Academy were I was but saw people form USHR, Taft, Lawrence, Sacred Heart University to name a few. There will be a lot of bouncing between Beantown and this tourney for Prep Coaches.

#9 BC Eagles 3 over #18 Mercer Chiefs 1 – Eagles continue to play well, after making it to the finals at the EHF Tournament by beating the #8 SS Kings a few weeks (losing in finals to #4 MidFairfield Rangers). Chiefs keep it close.

#6 NJ Colonials 5 over #70 Buffalo Regals 0. John Farinacci puts on a show with a 3-1-4 line in the game for the Colonials.

#8 SS Kings 4 over #3 CT Wolfpack 3. Conor Lovett scores 2 as a severely depleted bench for the Kings (2 healthy D, missing a forward) squeak out the win in the last minutes against a scrappy Wolfpack team.

#1 Minuteman Flames 11 over #29 EC Wizards 0. The question if the E9 teams can play with the EHF Elite has one big statement in that conversation. #1 team shows why they are #1.

#13 Boston Bandits 3 over #28 TPH Thunder 2. Many close good games already. EHF Elite continue dominance at the tourney. Tough Bandits will the win.

More on Day 2
