Liam Lyons takes the opening face off against Danvers


The Gloucester Fishermen hockey team is wrapping up their season with its last game of the season against Somerville this Wednesday. This Fishermen will be heading to the playoffs next week.

As of now it is unclear who the Fishermen will compete against in the playoffs, but they will get a pretty good seed and could potentially be seeded fourth or fifth place in their division. The playoff bracket will be released at the end of this week.

The Fishermen are predicted to win against Somerville who is having a rough season with a record of 1-17. Despite its record, Somerville has had some hard match-ups and Gloucester will still have to play its game.

This would make the Fishermen finish the season with a record of 12-5-3. This is the Fishermen’s most successful season since they won their division back in 2006.

This is not Gloucester’s only accomplishment this season. The team won its conference for the second year in a row, which has not been done in fifty years. Liam Lyons currently has 38 points this season and has a chance to score more than 40 points, which has not  been done by a Gloucester Fisherman since the 2006 season.

The end of the season also brings the NEC All-Star game. Gloucester has five players who have been honored to play. Alex Enes, Eddie Mahoney, Liam Lyons, Sal Costanzo, and Noah Poliskey will be attending. Enes has also been voted as an all conference player. The All-Star game is Saturday February 27, at 1:00 p.m. at Salem State.
