Demeyer is one of the most loyal and dedicated players who ever sported an Eels uniform. Notes GM Scarpaci. He is going into his 3rd season with the Eels Junior program. He started with the Eels travel team as a first year Bantam and he caught the eye of GM Frank Scarpaci who was coaching that team. He noted, “he had no fear factor than nor now. On the boards, he would battle to his death. He would take on the toughest of opponents and that is what gave him the nod to join the Eels 2 seasons ago when he was just a Midget” commented GM Scarpaci. “I wish every player played with his heart. We talk of guys having the Will to win but Mason does all the extra things…including coming to practice 2 hours prior and shooting and extra 100 pucks per day”
Premier Coach Frank Scarpaci echoed, Mason has tremendous upside. No doubt his skating is his top attribute. He has explosive speed. Last season he proved to be the team’s top penalty killer. He leaned fast that special teams win games and he would establish himself as the guy who would shut down opposing team’s power play”
Elite Head Coach Alex Sanchez says the strength of Mason is his work ethic. He doesn’t give lip service. He does all of the little things such as block shots and it is those little things that win games…When the season ended, he started to work on 2018-19. For Mason he took 2 weeks off and back to work. He trained 5 days per week with the Eels junior coaches. This included 5 days in the gym and 2 days of on ice intense skills training.
GM Scarpaci concluded, “Mason scored 5 goals and notched 15 assists last season. With his enhanced training over the Spring and Summer we expect him to put those developed heightened skills together with his explosive speed to have breakout year. He is determined to play NCAA College Hockey. There is no doubt he has the intangible drive to reach his goals.
