Eagles' Foster, Bombers' Clark lead CVAC hockey all-stars


Eric Bechard (Plattsburgh High)- Bechard’s explosiveness proved beneficial for the Hornets. A junior, he gave maximum effort at all times and played at both ends of the ice. Scoring 15 goals and 23 assists for 38 points, Bechard was a great leader and team player for Plattsburgh High.

Shane McNierney (Lake Placid)- McNierney led by example in the effort he gave and numbers he put up. He was a top-six scorer in the CVAC, leading the Blue Bombers offensively with 10 goals and 19 assists for 29 points.

Reece Tucker (Northeastern Clinton)- A four-year player for the Cougars, Tucker was a strong defenseman for Northeastern Clinton with both his defensive and offensive attributes. Accumulating five goals and seven assists for 12 points, he was chosen as a captain for the Cougars during his senior go-around.

Bradley Shumway (Saranac Lake)- Shumway is a returning First Team defenseman. After being an integral part of the Red Storm’s final four run in 2012, he captained this year’s club, firing four goals and eight points.

Tucker Angelopoulos (Lake Placid)- Angelopoulos backstopped the Blue Bombers to a CVAC regular-season title and runner-up finish in the Section VII playoffs. His positive attitude and athleticism helped the junior record 3.5 shutouts and a 92.8 save percentage.

Second Team

Brandon Buksa (Beekmantown)- Buksa not only served as a team captain, but was the inspirational leader for the Eagles. As one of the league’s top centerman, he produced in the offensive end (9-14-23) and was Beekmantown’s best defensive forward. His ability to kill penalties, block shots, win draws, backcheck and neutralize the opposing team’s best players was a key ingredient to the Eagles’ runner-up finish.

Jack Tolosky (Plattsburgh High)- Tolosky was an offensive threat every time he stepped on the ice, which was proven over the past five seasons in the CVAC. During his senior season, he took on more defensive responsibilities, but still managed to be one the league’s top point-getters with 15 goals on 39 points.
