1st Overall: Jason Marsella (D)

Position: Defenseman

Hometown: Greenwich, CT

Birthyear: 2001

 

“Marsella is a strong, two-way, defenseman who is a natural leader. His poise at both ends of the ice is evident with every strategic decision he makes. Marsella is the kind of player you want to have on the ice, in any situation, when you’re protecting a lead or if you need a goal. He’s the kind of player you win with.”

– Billy Sullivan Director of Player Personnel

 

 

29th Overall: Jonathan Horn

Position: Forward

Hometown: Southbury, CT

Birthyear: 2002

 

“Jonathan is talented winger who is going to bring a lot of speed and skill to our lineup. His 0-60 speed for loose pucks is what really stood out to us and his offensive abilities when he has the puck on his stick. We’re extremely happy to have Jonathan apart of Rhino Country!”

– Assistant Coach Vinny Bohn

 

56th Overall: Aleksi Kayra

Position: Forward

Hometown: Jyväskylä, FIN

Birthyear: 2001

 

“Aleksi is a projected top line Center for us, his ability to play a smart 200ft game with a scoring knack will be a welcomed addition to our team. He’s a high character person who will be leaned on for leadership in the room.”

-Head Coach Anthony Bohn
