Coach: Aaron Rand (fifth year)
Last year's record: 13-4-1
Returning players: Seniors — Ryan Davala (F), Evan Baggs (F), Adam Healy (F), Evan Coulombe (D), Cam Spiller (D), Jordan Rouillard (D), Travis Hemond (D); Juniors — Calvin Shelley (G), Tyler Lafrinea (F); Sophomores — Kaleb Bridgham (F), Nevin Rand (F), David Despins (D).
Key losses: Kolby Arnold, Zac Knapp, Joey Violette, Nick Labbe, Cody Girouard, Sam Mayer, Devin Goyette, Matt Ouellette.
Promising newcomers: Sophomore — Jake Simard (G); Freshmen — Ethan Callier (F), Lucas Nickerson (F).
Outlook: There is a good chunk of talent gone from last year's team, including ace Kolby Arnold. But six of the team's top 10 in points from a year ago return, Shelley has the pedigree in net and has shown some flashes of solid play, and Simard ought to push him. There is a good mix of experience and new blood on the team and the Patriotic Knights should push to return to the playoffs.
Coach's comment: "The number one goal is to return to the playoffs. We hope to win enough to host another playoff game." — Coach Aaron Rand
