2012 All-City hockey teams

St. Joseph by the Sea's Rob Palumbo

FIRST TEAM

ROB PALUMBO
PLAYER OF THE YEAR
St. Joseph by the Sea, Sr. Goalie

Every team that wants to make a deep playoff run needs a stellar goalie and there was none better in the CHSHL this year than Rob Palumbo. The St. Joseph by the Sea senior finished with a 2.73 goals against average in 15 regular season games. He faced 481 shots and made 441 saves for a .917 save percentage. He had one shutout and stood on his head in the championship series against mighty St. Anthony’s.

TYLER MALONE
St. Joseph by the Sea, Sr. Defenseman

While Palumbo was excellent, he wasn’t by himself back there. Malone was as solid as they come in the CHSHL defensively, a big reason why the Vikings not only made the playoffs, but reached the best-of-three championship series. The senior also had four goals and four assists for eight points.

JOHN PALLIS
Monsignor Farrell, Sr. Defenseman

Who said defensemen need to take penalties to be effective? Pallis was a strong, effective blue-liner and yet took just two minor penalties all season. The senior also had five goals and four assists for the Lions, which failed to make the postseason for the first time.

MICHAEL BRONZO
St. Joseph by the Sea, Sr. Forward

Outside of St. Anthony’s superstar Chris Wallace, Bronzo was arguably the most feared forward in the CHSHL. Despite missing five games because of a shoulder injury, the senior finished sixth in scoring in the CHSHL Class A with 16 goals and three assists – all in seven games. He saved his best for rival Farrell, scoring nine goals in three wins.

SEAN GARGIN
Monsignor Farrell, Sr. Forward

While the Lions were inconsistent this season, Gargin wasn’t. He lit the lamp on a regular basis, finishing tied for fourth in the CHSHL Class A with 20 points on 11 goals and nine assists. His best performance might have come against semifinalist Iona Prep, scoring three goals and assisting on one in a 6-4 victory on Feb. 3.

VIN DIMARE
Monsignor Farrell, Sr. Forward

DiMare was among the top scorers in the CHSHL Class A with 12 goals and six assists for a total of 18 points. When the senior forward was on, it usually resulted in a positive result for Monsignor Farrell. He had four goals in a 9-5 win against Fordham Prep, and twice had a pair of goals in wins against St. Mary’s (Manhasset).

SECOND TEAM

John Doyle, G, St. Francis Prep, Senior
Phillip Garcia, D, St. Joseph by the Sea, Sophomore
Calin Petre, D, Xavier, Senior
Nick Bowerman, F, Holy Cross, Senior
Aaron Acosta, F, Junior, St. Francis Prep
Mike Withers, F, Fordham Prep, Junior

COACH OF THE YEAR

KEVIN GOODSPEED
Holy Cross

A year after a disappointing season in Class A, Holy Cross moved back to Class B and Goodspeed made sure the team returned to its previous form. The Knights won the CHSHL ‘B’ title for the third time in four years and did so in dominant fashion. Holy Cross was 14-1-1 during the regular season and won all four of its playoff games convincingly.
