Greely Junior Captain Ted Hart was recently named Class B West Hockey January 2013 Forward of the Month. Hart was one of the more lethal forwards in the entire state in January. Starting with the Rangers' Jan. 10 home win against York, the three-year varsity regular scored 14 goals and 8 assists over the next six games, leading the Rangers to on-ice wins in all six of those games. Two of the wins (over St. Dom's and Yarmouth) were later forfeited due to the unintentional use of an ineligible player. Hart, a shifty, speedy forward with a dangerous wrister and a range of moves, notched three-goal hat tricks in games against Gardiner, Biddeford, Yarmouth, and Leavitt and had two-goal games vs. St. Dom's and York. Overall, in 13 games played in 2012-13, Hart has 23 goals and 12 assists.

"Ted has been on a tear over the past three weeks or so and it's been great to see the speed and the attacking," said Coach Barry Mothes. "He and Reid Howland and Mitchel Donovan have had some strong games as a line, and Ted has been a big part of that. He's moving very well all over the ice and playing more solid hockey on both sides of the puck. It's certainly helped us get some bigs wins in January as we move into the final stretch of the regular season."

Hart is the third Greely player named as a Class B West Player of the Month in 2012-13. Senior defensman Kyle Megathlin was December 2012 Defenseman of the Month and freshman Jarod Lavalle was named December 2012 Rookie of the Month.


(as voted by the Class B West Hockey Coaches Association)

DEFENSEMAN:  Kyle Megathlin, Senior, Greely

Megathlin, a First Team West B League All Star on defense last season, was a steady and productive force on the blue line for the Rangers in December, scoring 4 goals and adding 5 assists in 4 games. Megathlin's playmaking and scoring and his solid work on defense lead Greely to a 4-0-0 record in the month with wins over Gardiner, York, and Cape and an impresive 7-5 win on the road over two-time defending Class A State Champion Thornton Academy.


Jarod Lavallee, Greely, freshman, forward

Lavallee stepped in to the Greely line-up and had an impressive first month of high school hockey. Playing both center and wing with composure and a strong playmaking sense, Lavallee scored 3 goals and added an assist and was a +6 in four games. He notched a point in each of Greely's four games in the month and scored the game-winning goal late in the third period in the team's 7-5 win on Dec. 22 at Thornton Academy.

Jet Magri, Camden Hills, freshman, goaltender

Magri had an impressive first month of his high school hockey career, going 3-0-0, with a 2.00 GAA and an .890 save percentage. Magri was in net for the Windjammers' wins over Class B West Yarmouth (5-2) in the season opener and also for wins over East B John Bapst (4-2) and Hamdpen Academy (6-2) as Camden Hills went undefeated in December and looked poised to challenge for a top playoff seed as  the teams moved into the middle portion of the regular season.

FORWARD: Jack Orne, Junior, Camden Hills

Orne, a strong offensive and defensive presence in the Camden Hills lineup the past two seasons and a Third Team West B League All-Star last season, got the 2012-13 season off to a strong start, scoring 7 goals and 7 assists in 4 games in December. A powerful skater with strong puck skills and a heavy shot, Orne's offensive production and strong all-around play helped the Windjammers to a 4-0-0 record in December with wins over West B Yarmouth and East B teams Hampden, John Bapst, and Lawrence.


Red DeSmith, Senior, Yarmouth

While he did not register a win in the month of the December (0-3-1), Yarmouth goalie Red DeSmith gave the Clippers a chance in each of the four games he played. DeSmith had a 2.60 GAA and a .920 save percentage for the month, which included a 5-2 loss to Camden in the season opener, a 2-2 tie at Cape Elizabeth, a 4-1 loss at home to Gardiner, and a 2-1 loss at York. With a young team in front of him averaging only 1.5 goals per game, DeSmith faced 129 shots in the four games.

Nick Allen, Senior, Leavitt

Allen, a converted goaltender who took on the position last season as a junior, had a solid and inspired month in net for the Hornets, posting a 2-1-0 record, with a .870 save percentage and a 2.00 GAA. Allen battled and kept Leavitt close in a 5-1 opening loss to Class A Cony and then helped Leavitt in wins over Class A Noble (5-1) and Gray-NG/Poland, posting a 3-0 shutout with a solid performance.
