Coach: Aaron Rand (fourth year)

Last year’s record: 5-12-1

Returning players: Seniors — Kolby Arnold (F), Zac Knapp (F), Joey Violette (F), Nick Labbe (F), Cody Girouard (F), Sam mayer (D), Devin Goyette (F), Matt Ouellette (G); Juniors — Ryan Davala (F), Adam Healy (F), Jordan Rouillard (D), Evan Coulombe (D), Travis Hemond (D), Evan Baggs (D), Cam Spiller (D); Sophomores — Calvin Shelley (G), Tyler Lafrinea (F).

Key losses: Tyler Snow.

Promising newcomers: Freshmen — Jake Simard (G), Nevin Rand (F), Kaleb Bridgham (F), David Despins (D).

Outlook: With 17 players returning, and 15 of them either juniors or seniors, the Patriotic Knights should be solid this season. Good team speed up front, disciplined defense and strong goaltending will keep them in games. Arnold is one of the unsung stars of Eastern Class A, and with three goalies pushing each other in the cage, playoffs are an attainable goal for this group.
