had several college options and was looking for a program that allowed him the
opportunity to immediately step in and become an impact for the team. GM
Scarpaci echoes, Stonebraker is a very good two-way player working very hard in
all 3 zones. He is tenacious on the fore-check and
more importantly equally strong in his back checking responsibilities. This is
very important to any coach but particularly in college hockey. There is no
room for complacency or halfhearted efforts and this is what makes David so attractive
to college coaches.
Scarpaci provides the following scouting report on David:DOB: 9/26/96 HOMETOWN: PITTSBURG, PA HEIGHT: 6'0" WEIGHT:
180lbs SHOT: RIGHTStonebreaker posses a stealthy shot that has an incredibly quick
release. He understands his greatest asset is his shot, and shoots often
especially when in the middle of the ice. A real strong competitor bellow the
hash marks and knows how to get open at the right times, and right places. A
quick skater, with powerful bursts of acceleration. He is a hard nose grinding
forward with great work ethic.
Scarpaci concluded that David would be a solid player for Kings College. He has
the determination and desire and heart to play NCAA Div. III hockey. Not every
player can and will reach that plateau. It is not surprising to any of us that
he was scouted and recruited by Kings College. Coach Scarpaci echoed that David
was taught as an Eel that to take nothing for granted. He needs to work every
shift and out work his opponents every time he is on the ice. Never be
complacent no matter what the score is.
worked hard over the past two seasons playing juniors. He comes from a very
supportive family that has allowed him with enormous sacrifices to reach and
realize his dreams of playing NCAA College hockey. Stonebraker is a kid with a
strong character. He was a consummate team player. Selfless. We were glad he
played his last year of juniors for the Eels concluded GM Scarpaci. We all wish
David the best.
