SCHSHL Top Ten Defenseman – Week 9



Each week LISN uses advanced analytics to break down the top ten defenseman in the SCHSHL Varsity Division. Our model factors in everyday statistics such as Goals, Assists and Points to establish a baseline for league play. It then takes into account stats such as Power Play Goals, Shorthanded Goals and Game Winning Goals in order to analyze how a player produces as well as what situations they produce in. We also use our analytics program to track how players perform in wins/losses, when they score in a game as well as a multitude of other factors.

West Islip

Henshaw is an elite two-way player who uses his high end four-way mobility to suppress scoring chances in his own zone before. The Lions blue liner excels at transitioning up ice and creating opportunities for both himself and his teammates in transition.

East Islip

Slattery is one of the most well rounded defenders in the SCHSHL. He has tallied five points on the campaign while limiting opponents scoring chances.,

Kings Park Commack

Furst has excelled at preventing zone entries this year. The KPC blue liner is also an elite defender against the cycle. His two-way game has been a major boon to the Knights so far this year.

Smithtown Hauppauge Bulls

Lackowitz has been a steadying presence on the blue line for a young and exciting Smithtown Hauppauge squad. He has three goals and an assist on the season, but his stellar defensive play earned him a spot in the top five.

Connetqout Sayville BBP

DeLucie has spent the better part of two seasons doing the dirty work down low in his own teams zone. His elite defensive presence was a major factor against the Bulls. He has two goals and one assist in seven games this season.

St. Anthony’s

When O’Doherty is on the ice for the Friars, the puck tends to move in the right direction. He has one goal and five assists on the season, but his ability to force turnovers has been his calling card this season.


The Sachem blue liner continues to play big minutes on both the power play and penalty kill. Mascaro is always on the ice at the end of the game for Sachem. He has three assists in eight games to date.

Kings Park Commack

The Knights defenseman has three goals and three assists through seven games this season. His smooth skating has made him an important piece of a KPC blue line loaded with talent.

East Islip

The EI defenseman is one of his teams most reliable puck carriers in transition, but his ability to break up odd man rushes in transition is a major reason why he is on this list.

Ward Melville

The Patriots blue liner excels at using his feet to create chances in transition. Eilenberger is at his best when he uses his speed to hound the puck up and down the ice.
