TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – ROCKLAND NATIONALS
The Rockland Nationals cruised through the season, finishing 18 points clear of second-place Hawkesbury to claim the HEO regular season title. The Nationals led the league wire to wire on the strength of two double-digit win streaks, a 12-game run to open the season, and a 13-game streak mid-season. Dominant at both ends of the ice, Rockland led the league with 149 goals for, while allowing a stingy 52 goals against. Netminders Justin Lee (18-1-1, 1.12 GAA, .937 SV%, 5 SO) and Will McEvoy (18-1-2, 1.25 GAA, .936 SV%, 9 SO) were absolutely lights out, coming one-two in all major categories, while Rocco Testa-Basi (24-19—43) led a group of five Nationals in the top 20 of HEO scoring.
