Maroon M Small  class of ‘25 recruit Bella Fanale is on the 19u all-tournament team at USA Hockey Nationals.

I’ll have some more on these teams tomorrow.

As promised, a closer look at the all-tournament teams from the recently concluded USA Hockey Nationals. First the 19u division. Players with flags by their name played in the World 18u tournament last January.

G Veronika Hadamovsky (Boston Jr. Eagles/Groton School) ‘24 From Groton, Massachusetts 

🇺🇸 D Megan Healy (BK Selects) ‘25 Princeton recruit, from South Burlington, Vermont 

D Ashley Mandeville (BK Selects) ‘24 Mercyhurst recruit, from Pascoag, Rhode Island

🇺🇸 F Angelina DiGirolamo (BK Selects) ‘24 Princeton recruit, from Woburn, Massachusetts 

🇺🇸 F Bella Fanale (BK Selects) ‘25 Maroon M Small  , from Webster, New York 

🇸🇰 F Nela Lopusanova (BK Selects) ‘26 From Zilina, Slovakia 

So, BK gets five of the six all-tournament spots and they lost the championship game 3-2 to Shattuck. And Shattuck gets shut out in the post tournament accolades.

@iceburg I see Nela still hasn't committed yet since she is 2026.  Any thoughts where she might be headed?  I've heard her mention Wisconsin once about a year ago in an article I read.

The 16u all-tournament team

G Kayla Swartout (Minnesota Hardware/Holy Family) ‘26 From Shakopee 

🇺🇸 D Margaret Averill (Assabet Valley/Phillips Academy) ‘27 From Weyland, Massachusetts 

D Shayla Beaudette (BK Selects) ‘26 From Aurora, Colorado 

🇺🇸 F Caroline Averill (Assabet Valley/Phillips Academy) ‘26 From Weyland, Massachusetts 

F Violet Carroll (Massachusetts Spitfires/Williston Northampton School) ‘25 Holy Cross recruit, from Milton, Massachusetts 

F Nina Rossi (Shattuck) ‘25 New Hampshire recruit, from Pittsgrove, New Jersey 

Shattuck won this division also beating BK Selects in the final. Look for the Beaudette girl to be a target this coming recruiting cycle. It will also be interesting to see if anyone can get the Averill sisters out of the East. Their mother was a decorated player at Princeton.

This one’s going to be a dog fight. Rumors are starting to fly around that Mark Johnson may be close to retirement. Mark, It’s great, I never look back 👍🏼

Both were on the champion Moose team that beat another Minnesota team (the Lakers) in the final. The twins were 8th graders on Farmington’s varsity this past season and were the teams top two scorers.

  • Jenna (20-15-35)
  • Amelia (10-20-30)

The other locals on the all-tournament team….

I haven’t seen any evidence that the staff is targeting this girl, but they haven’t been adverse to the European route lately.

Lost a bit in the Chloe Primerano spotlight, Gracie Graham should be a very solid Gopher and seems like a down-to-earth person.

Maddie Wheeler from Wisconsin is in the portal I see.  Any chance she would be coming to Minnesota?  Though I'm sure she's headed to portal U.
