For the second consecutive year, New Trier Green and Providence Catholic will square off in the state title game of the Illinois State High School Hockey Championships at the United Center on Friday at 7 p.m.
The game will be live streamed on CSNChicago.com with WGN Radio's Judd Sirott and CSN's Steve Konroyd on the call, and a re-broadcast will air Sunday at 4 p.m. on CSN.
In the 2016 championship match, New Trier Green came out on top 5-2 thanks to a four-goal effort by forward Jack Raith, who's now a senior.
He ranks second on the team with 118 points in 75 games, and is one of three players on the Trevians that has compiled at least 100 points this season, along with Charlie Burton (102 points in 67 games) and leading-scorer Tommy Cahill (125 points in 71 games).
Burton was recently named the JJ O'Connor Male High School Player of the Year for his terrific senior campaign, and will look to cap off his high school career by helping his school win its fourth title in five years.
Jake Rott took home the player of the year honors last season, and leads the way for the Celtics as they seek their first-ever high school hockey state championship.
He has 61 points in 22 Catholic League regular-season games this season, with senior forward Jake Vennetti right behind him at 58 points.
The No. 1-seeded Trevians cruised past No. 5 Benet Academy 8-2 in the semifinals of the Red Division while the No. 2-ranked Celtics blanked No. 3 Loyola Gold 5-0 to advance to the championship.
