In addition to the three Captains, Senior forward Nick Milmore (16 GP 4g, 3a) and defenseman Tyler Alesso (9 GP 0g, 2a) will also be counted on to provide depth and leadership to the young core.
On the blueline, the Ironmen return Sophomore’s Lukas Peterson (10 GP 0g, 1a), Kenny Kalman (12 GP 0g, 1a) and Luca Chiaese (2 GP, 0g, 0a), as well as Junior’s Andrew Chanfrau (4 GP 0g, 2a), Liam St. Pierre (4 GP 1g, 1a) and newcomer Maverick Hammond.

Entering his 16th season at the helm for Don Bosco, Head Coach Greg Toskos (244-107-27) will look to guide the Ironmen to once again claim post season success. “The expectations for this season remain the same as they always do for us and that’s to compete for a league, county, conference and state championship like we have for the past several seasons and will continue to do so in the future. We have strong Senior leadership in our room as well as a host of young players that will make impacts for us throughout the season.”
Once again Don Bosco will still play one of the toughest schedules in the state. Along with playing each of the Gordon teams, Bosco will travel to Massachusetts and play Xavarian High School and BC High in December as well as renew a rivalry against the Portledge School at the new UBS Arena in February. Additionally, the Ironmen will also play a strong in state Non-Conference schedule including Morristown Beard School, Hun School and Lawrenceville Prep.
