KJ Boys Lacrosse Player of the Year: Sloan Berthiaume, Gardiner
League's best face-off man led Tigers to unbeaten regular season.

...“A lot of hockey his like lacrosse, even though the two sports are obviously different,” Berthiaume said. “It’s more the mentality of it than it is the (technical side). I get something out of playing both. There’s the physicality of hockey, where this is more finesse — of course if you win a faceoff and run through seven checks, it definitely doesn’t feel likee the physical part has gone away at all.”

Johnson is eager to see what that will look like a year from now. Gardiner graduated a slew of top attacking talent from the roster, and teams will find ways to focus on Berthiaume and his ability to quarterback the offense during his senior season in 2018.

“He’s that grinder, old-school throwback type of player,” Johnson said. “He’s allowed if he sees seams out there to take those seams and excecute. The next level for him is being able to manage the whole offensive game, to be the quarterback of the offense, be the point guard.”
