Three Greenwich boys ice hockey players were named to the All-FCIAC Division I First Team and one athlete earned Second Team honors, after they each produced impressive seasons.
Senior defenseman Chris Cataldo and junior twin brothers Charlie and Wesley Zolin were All-FCIAC First Team selections. Sean Duffy, a senior forward, is an All-FCIAC Second Team selection.
Charlie Zolin’s efforts in goal were instrumental to the Cardinals’ success during their 2021 season. He was rock-solid between the pipes throughout the season, registering key saves in clutch moments. A 31-save performance in Greenwich’s 3-2 overtime win over Fairfield Co-Op in the FCIAC Division I Tournament semifinals was one of the numerous highlights of Zolin’s season as the Cardinals’ goalie. In the first round of the FCIAC Division I tourney, Zolin posted 23 saves in a 4-0 Greenwich victory, one of several shutouts he recorded during the season.
Wesley Zolin, a forward, skated on one of Greenwich’s top lines and helped make it a highly productive one. He was one of the Cardinals’ leading scorers on the season, providing the team with an offensive spark in nearly every game. In Greenwich’s 3-2 overtime triumph against Fairfield Co-Op in the FCIAC Division I semifinals, Zolin had a goal, enabling the Cardinals to advance to the championship game.
Cataldo, one of the Cardinals’ senior captains, was a standout defenseman for several seasons. The Cardinals’ rotation of defensemen helped make the team difficult to score against and Cataldo was a mainstay on the blue line.
Duffy, also provided leadership as one of the Cards’ senior captains. A forward, he was a consistent offensive presence on his line throughout the season, which saw Greenwich post a record of 10-5 and advance to the FCIAC Division I Tournament, where it lost to rival New Canaan, 3-1, at Dorothy Hamill Skating Rink.
