The Tampa Bay Juniors forwards Jonah Mortenson and Beau Courneya along with defensemen Jon Heller and Parker Chadwell were named 2022 Florida Division All Stars.  Players were voted upon by coaches and league media staff.  

Jonah Mortenson, Tampa Bay Juniors 

The Juniors made a serious push to dislodge the Eels from the top of the Florida Division, finishing just four points back. The 2002-born native of Champlin, Minn., finished with 55 points in just 33 games, putting up a 1.57 points per game that is third best in the Juniors’ USPHL Premier history and best since 2018. He also saw his first four games at the Tier II level this season. 

 

Beau Courneya, Tampa Bay Juniors 

The Juniors have always had a strong Minnesota presence, and the 2002-born St. Louis Park, Minn., native is proof positive of this. He posted a 24-37-61 line while playing all 44 regular season games as a first-year Premier forward. His 61 points ranked fourth all-time for single season output by a Juniors player in the USPHL Premier. His 37 assists were fifth-best for a first-year Premier player this past season. 

Jon Heller, Tampa Bay Juniors

Homegrown, loyal and just really darned good - that’s what Jon Heller is to the Tampa Bay Juniors. The 2001-born native of Trinity, Fla., is second to Zack Puterbaugh in the all-time games played leaderboard for the Juniors (and Puterbaugh himself is second all-time in USPHL Premier history). Over 150 games, he’s put up 74 points, including 23 points in 41 games this year. He led the team in average ice time at 19:32 and was second in blocked shots at 40. 

 

Parker Chadwell, Tampa Bay Juniors

Number four on the Juniors’ all-time leaderboard for games played is the ‘01 from Tampa, Chadwell. He just completed his third Premier season with the Juniors for 124 career Premier games, and was the Juniors’ leading defenseman in overall ice time (841:15) and shorthanded ice time (94:28). Along with scoring 20 points in 44 games, Chadwell was a +9 and registered only six penalty minutes all season. 

Forwards 

Taurin Haddon-Harris, Florida Eels

Never before had the Eels’ USPHL Premier team seen its equal, this 2021-22 regular season that Haddon-Harris put forth. The 2001-born native of Boca Raton, Fla., put up 33 goals, 55 assists and 88 points in 43 games, setting a single-season record for both the point total and points per game average (2.05). He very nearly doubled his already impressive 2020-21 points total of 45 points. He was stellar on the power play, as well ranking fifth in both power play assists (20) and power play points (29). A Curry College recruit, Haddon-Harris was the division’s only unanimous All-Star selection. 

 

Collin Patterson, Florida Eels

Following close behind Haddon-Harris is another second-year Eel, Patterson hailing from Melbourne, Fla. He better than doubled his 2020-21 points total, pushing from 27 last year to 60 this season while tying Haddon-Harris for the goal lead with 33 points apiece. When the Eels made a push into Nationals, Patterson put up a team-leading nine assists along with a goal for 10 total points in the playoffs. 


 

Cameron Croteau, Florida Jr. Blades

It took a lot for the Jr. Blades to overcome the Tampa Bay Juniors in the playoffs and move on to Nationals, and Croteau always gave a lot - and then found a whole new level to give beyond. That’s part of why he’s always found a home in the USPHL, going back to his first season in the league in 2015 at the 16U level. This was Croteau’s second season in Gator stripes with the Jr. Blades, and he rewarded their faith in him by putting up 49 points in 43 games. His 29 assists are second best in the Jr. Blades’ Premier Division history and his 49 points are fifth. Croteau’s seven-year USPHL journey has led him to an NCAA commitment to Lebanon Valley College. 

 

Cole Ketola, Florida Jr. Blades

The 2001-born native of Cloquet, Minn., finished just one point shy of doubling his 2020-21 season, pushing from 26 last year to 51 this season, the third-best USPHL Premier points showing by a Jr. Blades player. With two Premier seasons in the books, Ketola has averaged 1.03 points per game with 77 points in 73 contests. 

 

Connor Crawford, Florida Jr. Blades 

Depth was huge for the Jr. Blades to advance to Nationals. Consider that they have three All-Star forwards and they rarely played on the same line, typically on totally different units, yet all three averaged better than a point per game. The 2002-born Michigan native, a first-year forward with the Jr. Blades, registered 44 points in 41 contests. Crawford tied for the goals lead (with three) during the Jr. Blades six-game postseason, including their Nationals run. 

 

Vesse Lampen, Palm Beach Typhoon

The first-year Typhoon played the lottery for the first time and hit the jackpot, bringing in the ‘02 from Espoo, Finland. However, this wasn’t so much a case of luck as having inside info on the numbers that would come up. After all, Lampen had already competed in Florida in 2019-20 as part of the South Florida Hockey Academy, a USPHL Affiliate at the Midget level. He scored 32 goals and 54 points in 40 games this season, a huge asset for the new team. 

 

Ben Baker, Atlanta Mad Hatters

Every team has its leaders, the leader up front for the Mad Hatters was the second-year Hatter (and fifth-year USPHL veteran) out of Powder Springs, Ga. Baker exactly doubled his points output from 2020-21 by putting up 46 points here in the 2021-22 season, over 40 games with a pretty even 21-25-46 line. He joins fellow Mad Hatters Owen Larson, Jakob Holley and Andrew Lozinak as alumni of multiple Northern Cyclones Academy Midget teams going back to 2017-18. 

 

Defensemen

Trevor Voyda, Florida Eels

Voyda departs the Eels as a five-year USPHL veteran with three years on the Eels Premier squad. The local ‘01 from Naples, Fla., is fifth all-time in Eels games played with 120 (and third in their five-year USPHL Premier existence), and was this year their ice time leader, averaging 22:22 per game, blocking a team-high 61 shots, and finishing second to Haddon-Harris in plus-minus (+36). He put up 27 points in 41 games in the best offensive performance of his Premier career. 

 

Owen Larson, Atlanta Mad Hatters

Larson (‘02/Snellville, Ga.) is the Mad Hatters’ all-time leader in Premier games played (128), assists (72) and points (81). He had the Florida Division’s best points per game this year by putting up 37 points in 33 games, improving upon last year by 16 points. He is another five-year USPHL veteran. 

 

Goaltender

Alexandre Caron, Florida Eels

Two years, 33 wins and an average save percentage of .918 - and never less in a Premier season than last year’s .916. Caron is truly “Alexandre The Great,” as dubbed by The Dan K Show. He tied for fourth in wins with fellow All-Star Riley Allen of Wisconsin Rapids, as they both had 18 W’s on the season. He posted a .930 postseason save percentage as the Eels went to the National Semifinals, another amazing performance after his mind-boggling .959 in last year’s playoffs and Nationals.
