WARWICK, PA -- Last year, the Eastern Hockey League’s Mid-Atlantic Division was ironclad from top to bottom; from the Philadelphia Little Flyers (winners of 33 in a row), and the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers (eventual playoff champions), to the Philadelphia Revolution all giving no love to opponents from the City of Brotherly Love.
Before even the first day of Fall here in 2017, signs were again pointing to the Mid-Atlantic being loaded with tough teams. The Revolution and Little Flyers each started out with perfect records, leading up to yesterday's matchup at Revolution Ice Gardens.
Revolution general manager Chris Kanaly said it is his team’s captains, Bryce Witman and Austin Morgan, who are the main cogs in the machine.
“They are returning players, and from both a leadership and offense perspective, you can’t deny they’ve been prolific,” said Kanaly. “[That trio has] come back to us to get their NCAA commitments through us. They bring the whole package. It’s how they come to the rink, what they do in team meetings and video sessions. Their influence is a good 20-25 percent a factor into what’s going on right now."
Below you'll find the box scores from the Revolution's six-game winning streak to start the season, and you can read more about the team on the official website of the USA Junior Hockey Magazine.
