Harrison Treiman– Senior, Council Rock North High School
A part of the program for four years, the senior captain has been sidelined with an injury since mid-December. Treiman, one of the team’s true defensemen, still attends games and continues to help the team in any way he can. He was instrumental in ensuring that Council Rock North – after losing the nucleus of last year’s team to graduation – could put a team on the ice this season.

Note from the coach:
“Harrison is a great kid,” coach Chris Gallagher said. “He was injured this year in travel, so it’s been a huge loss, and I know it wears on him. We graduated nine seniors last year, and we were really struggling to put together a team at all this year. He took the initiative to start calling kids at school, kids that have never played on a travel team. One kid never skated at all. It was all him. It wasn’t me going to school, it wasn’t me asking the kids. He put this together. He said, ‘I want to have this my senior year,’ and I think that was reflective of the kind of kid he is.

“Harrison has been our only true defenseman since I’ve been there, and that’s why it was a big blow when he got hurt because the other kids that are playing ‘D’ have never played defense before. They’re filling in as best as they can, and they’re doing a great job, but he was the one you really looked at to play big minutes. He ran our power play, and you trust him with that kind of stuff. He’s not a huge scorer, but he’s somebody you can count on. You don’t need a defenseman to put up 80 points, you just need them to maintain their integrity in the defensive zone.
“When I need something, there are three kids that are seniors that I reach out to, and he’s one of them and receptive. It’s like ‘Are these kids coming? Get this kid on board.’ I still go through him for that stuff because the kids respect him. He’s a quiet kid – he’s not very vocal, but he speaks up when he needs to. He’s always in a good mood, he never gets down, he has a positive attitude, and he has a good sense of humor, which I always appreciate, especially during tough seasons. He understands the cards we’re dealt and just enjoys this game for what it is.”
