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


Kyle Constanty (Beekmantown)- As the second-leading scorer in the league, Constanty showed his ability to be an offensive threat, and he continuously played with the grit and toughness needed to be a complete player. As a junior, he recorded 21 goals and 20 assists for 41 points.

Dillon Savage (Lake Placid)- A five-year player in the CVAC and four-year member for the Blue Bombers, Savage was converted to a defenseman this year and performed well for Lake Placid. He used his strength and competitive edge to serve the Blue Bombers in all roles, totaling four goals and 14 points.

Nzoni Thompson (Lake Placid)- Thompson was a great-skating defenseman for the Blue Bombers. Despite being injured during the season, he still managed to score seven times for 14 points. A team captain, he defended well, played a physical game and quarterbacked Lake Placid’s power-play unit.

Blake Darrah (Saranac Lake)- Darrah’s ability to keep the Red Storm in every game helped him to two shutouts and a 92.2 save percentage. The highlight of his career, though, occurred during his sophomore campaign when he carried Saranac Lake to the 2012 final four.
