History

2008-09: McNeely appeared in 34 games for Northeastern as a sophomore – missing seven games late in the season with a sprained ankle. He scored 8 goals with 12 assists and was +10 with 71 PMs. Northeastern finished second in Hockey East during the regular season – the school's first winning season since 2001-02 – and faced Cornell in an NCAA regional semifinal.

2009-10: McNeely was a team captain and skated in 33 of 34 games as a junior at Northeastern. He was the third-leading scorer for the Huskies, who finished ninth in Hockey East and missed the league playoffs. He scored 12 goals, including 6 power play goals, with 16 assists and was -3 with 42 PMs.

2010-11: McNeely made his professional debut on an amateur tryout with Bridgeport (AHL) following his senior season at Northeastern and impressed Islanders brass enough to earn a free agent contract. In ten games for the last-place Sound Tigers he scored 5 goals with 6 assists and was +9 with 4 PMs. McNeely was the second-leading scorer for Northeastern during his senior season as the Huskies finished a disappointing sixth in Hockey East. McNeely skated in all 38 games for the Huskies and had 13 goals with 21 assists and was +9 with 52 PMs. McNeely scored five times on the power play for the Huskies.

Talent Analysis

McNeely has average size and was not a highly sought after college free agent. He has very good hands and tremendous finishing ability. He can fill in wherever he is needed and is very solid on the penalty kill.

Future

McNeely is long shot to make the Islanders, but could fill in as a solid bottom-six forward with the Islanders when needed.

Vitkovice midgets star winger Petr Pohl established himself as one of the best midget-aged
players in the Czech Republic. It is obvious that he is on the way to a serious 2004 NHL
Draft prospect. This at this time not very known prospect took time to answer my
questions after the final game of the three-game series against the Swiss Under-16 team.

When did you start playing hockey?

older kids, I was too young so I wasn’t admitted. I spent the next year with figure skating,
the figure skating coaches taught me to skate so when I was five I had no trouble with starting
playing organized hockey.

Where did you start playing hockey?

It was in my hometown Koprivnice and now I play for the Vitkovice midgets.

Who directed your first hockey steps?

Nobody forced me to play hockey. My first role model was a friend from the house we lived in,
he was older than me and was also playing hockey so I wanted to be like him and started
playing hockey.

What is your biggest success in hockey so far?

Well, I think that my biggest success is that I was selected to play for the Under-16 team,
it’s a great honor.

Who is your biggest fan?

This would be my granddad. He watches most of my games and we discuss hockey very often. He really
supports me a lot.

Who is your hockey role model?

My biggest idol was Wayne Gretzky, when he was still playing, I watched him a lot and tried
to be like h Read more»
