Titan Players Participate in NAPHL Top Prospects Event
This past weekend, the NJ Junior Titans were well represented at the NAPHL Top Prospects Tournament run in conjunction with the Robertson Cup Championship. The Titans had four players participate in the event, Kevin Fitch, Anthony Rosetta, Connor Crowe, and Gage Klotz. These four players had the opportunity to compete amongst the NAPHL’s best over a three game tournament.
For the players, the experience was what it was all about. Said Klotz, “I thought it was a great experience. It was a lot of fun with some very good competition, glad I was able to go. We got to see some Robertson Cup games that were exciting with a lot of scoring and they were high intensity games.”
Crowe added, “The Top Prospects Tournament was a great. A lot of fun and a great experience. Good Way to get some exposure and play against great competition. The Robertson Cup games were very exciting and we got the opportunity to see a few overtime games.”
The four Titans represented the organization by playing on the Red Team which ended up winning the Consolation Game this morning against the Blue Team 7-2. Overall, the Red Team went 1-2 in Round Robin Play before getting the better of the Blue Team in the Consolation Game. Fitch had one goal and two assists on the weekend, Crowe and Rosetta had one assist, and Klotz was unable to register a point but was strong on defense all weekend. Fitch, “It was a good weekend with some kids around the country and British Columbia. Good competition, and a great atmosphere. It was good time. We also got an opportunity to see a couple of great Robertson Cup Games. “
As well as all that, it’s about making an impression on scouts and getting seen, as Rosetta commented, “I ended up getting internal muscle bleeding in my thigh and stitches in my elbow but felt I had to come back because it was a great opportunity to play out here with a lot of coaches out here and I wanted them to see some of me and my toughness that to not see anything all. The Robertson Cup games were so much faster and the guys were a lot bigger, more intense and finished all their checks.”
