Kyle Edmonds (Gloucester, MA)

Rockport High School

Commonwealth Athletic Conference

A junior defenseman, Kyle served as a captain on the Rockport team that advanced to the semi-finals in the MIAA Division 3 North Tournament this season. Rockport Head Coach Derek Papalegis says, “He is adisciplined player. That’s why we put the ‘A’ on his jersey. He’s not a vocal leader but he leads by example. The way he plays is the right way, he always gives 110% and he does the little things. He makes smart passes, he will give up his body to make a play. You don’t necessarily have to be vocal to be an on ice leader, he does it by doing the right things.”
