Valor grad, Centennial native Alfieri excited to take jump to NCDC’s Jr. Bruins in ’23-24
After capping his high school career at Valor Christian with a 2023 state championship, Alec Alfieri is moving on to a higher level of the game.
Alfieri, a Centennial native, recently signed an NCDC tender with the Boston Jr. Bruins for the upcoming 2023-24 USPHL season.
“At nationals, the Jr. Bruins coach, Nick Cammarata, first reached out to me,” Alfieri said. “From there, we maintained contact and then he offered me the tender. It’s been a dream of mine forever to play junior hockey. Moving out to Boston and playing at a high level is very exciting.”
Knowing the NCDC sends a slew of players to college hockey is a major appeal for Alfieri as he readies to head to Beantown later this summer.
“Playing Tier II hockey and above has always been a goal of mine,” Alfieri said. “Knowing college coaches are watching is very exciting as playing college hockey is also a dream of mine.”
Growing up, in addition to four years at Valor, Alfieri played for the Littleton Hawks, Krivo School of Hockey Elite, and Colorado Rampage.
“Most of my development came from playing under George Gwozdecky and his coaching staff at Valor,” said Alfieri. “Before that, playing for Andrei Krivokrasov (at Krivo) and Kyle Hull (at Littleton) was beneficial.”
Now with his junior hockey destination set, Alfieri can start to focus on the future.
“Short-term goals are to have a successful season with the Jr. Bruins and then hopefully have a good junior career before playing college hockey,” said Alfieri.
