Paragon Sports Consulting is proud to announce that two clients have been named players of the month in the NCDC. Clark Kerner and Ryan Prewitt have played very well in the early part of the season and we look forward to seeing them develop over the next couple of months.
Clark Kerner, Rockets Hockey Club
Kerner (‘00/Kansas City, Mo.) brought in some history with new Rockets Head Coach Jason Kersner, playing from 2016-18 for Kersner’s Skipjacks Hockey Club Midget program. He continues to fulfill the upside Kersner saw in him, and has racked up six goals (tied for first in the league) and nine assists (tied for first) for the sole hold on the scoring lead with 15 points after 10 October games. He has missed the scoresheet only once in nine games as the Rockets blasted to a 9-0-1 start.
Uncommitted Kerner leads the Rockets in shot accuracy, posting 4.7 shots on goal per game.
Ryan Prewitt, Boston Junior Bruins
A perfect representative of the youth movement with the Junior Bruins, by far the youngest NCDC team of the 2020-21 season, Prewitt (‘02/Abington, Mass.) has almost quietly put together a heck of a first month in junior hockey. The former Worcester Academy standout posted six points – all assists – in seven October games, including setting up Frankie Ireland’s overtime game-winner that put the only blemish so far on the Rockets Hockey Club’s record.
Defensively, he has been razor-sharp, earning 39 takeaways, he stands at +3, and he is tied with teammate Will Gilson for most defensive shifts at 19. He spends even time on the power play and penalty kill as well, and has formed a great frequent pairing with Northeastern University recruit Jackson Dorrington.
