4. Joel Farabee^* (#86, East Coast Selects Ontario) Selects Academy, 5-9/145 – Farabee, a UNH fall ’19 commit, has hit a notable growth spurt since our last viewing, and it hasn't slowed him down in the least. The native of Cicero, NY, a Syracuse suburb, has a nice stride and a true understanding of spacing in the offensive zone. Was a constant distributor both off the rush and in settled offensive zone situations. Had an 8-25-33 line in 28 games with the Selects Academy 16Us last winter. (4-15-19, 7 GP)
Joel Farabee (00) commits to Boston University. Talk about an all-around competitor. Fast, great instincts, good internal drive. #NTDPwatch— Matt Grainda (@graindaiv) November 4, 2015
19. Joel Farabee (LW, #86 Syracuse Nationals, ’00) -- The ’00 from Cicero, NY put himself on the radar at Nationals, showing that despite his age he was able to stand out among kids a year older than he. Farabee reminds us of Patrick Harper in that he is small but possesses great hockey sense and instincts, is skilled with the puck, and uses changes of speed to create separation. He looked a little timid at times, but was able to produce a 2-2-4 line in 4 games as one of the tournament’s youngest players.
