Key Losses: Kyle Lemelin (F), Matt Poulin (F), Evan Gosselin (F), Ethan Melvin (D), Max Bolduc (D), Eddie Emerson (D).

Promising newcomers: Juniors — Jon Sturgis (D), Brady Cusson (D); Freshmen — Ryan Bossie (D), Jayden Wilson (D), Joe Bisson (F), Dustin Larochelle (F), Alex Rivet (F), Evan Cox (F).

Season outlook: Although Lewiston lost several key forwards and defensemen, including Travis Roy Award winner Kyle Lemelin, there are a significant amount of returning players up front and on defense who have varsity playing experience.  The transfer of defensemen Jon Sturgis provides a boost to the back end that already had strength with Joe Frechette and Cole Ouellette.  Up front, returning forwards Ulrich, Iacono, Morin, Wade, Croteau, Dostie and Rancourt all have varsity experience and proven scoring ability.  All three goaltenders return.
