Henry Crone (Dallas Stars Elite/Purple) 5-8/140 — A sensational playmaker. Fun to watch. Was the top scorer in camp with a 2-12-14 scoring line. Is not very big, but he plays strong on the puck and is thus effective against bigger and stronger defenders. Has elite hockey sense, understands how to create offense, and is very slippery in traffic. Was not drafted into the WHL, a blunder on their part because Crone has the potential to post 100 point seasons. Is a potential NTDP forward for whom there will be no shortage of D-I schools offering full scholarships.
3. Hank Crone, F, 2/19/98 (#67/Dallas Stars) 5-8/160 -- A dynamic forward who demands your attention when he is on the ice -- he’s really fun to watch. Crone has exceptional skill and is able to create offense in all situations. Has sensational playmaking skills and creates time and space for himself with his stickhandling abilities and hockey sense. Materializes out of nowhere – with the puck. A strong candidate for the NTDP. D-I schools are lining up for his services. Had a hat trick Friday vs. the Chicago Fury.
Hank Crone-F-Dallas Jr Stars- Crone is a prototypical waterbug forward. Quick feet and quick hands, with great offensive instincts. Reminds me a bit of a another player from Texas in Cason Hohmann.
Excited to announce that I have committed to Boston University and can't wait to play college hockey for the Terriers. #BU
