David Wilcox Joins the Northern Cyclones

Congrats to former GBN standout David Wilcox as he has made the next step in his hockey career by joining the Northern Cyclones in the USPHL-NCDC division.    The Northern Cyclones play out of Hudson, New Hampshire.  Out of 120 players invited to the tryouts, David was 1 of 3 to be given a contract with the NCDC team prior to the All Star teams being selected.  David was a long time member of the Bluehawks and was selected as Player of the Year last year in the high school Scholastic Hockey League.  The NBHL wishes him the best of luck.
