Coach: Joe Hutchinson (first year)

Conference: Class B West

Last year’s record: 4-13-1

Returning-letterman: Seniors — Clay Rowland (D), Connor Violette (F), Conor O’Malley (D); Juniors — Adam Poulin (F), Ryan Gosselin (F) Sophomores — Kevin Knight (D), Blaine Arsenault (F).

Key losses: Devin McMahan, Tyler Hutchinson, Jacob Gladu, Nick Labbe, Nick Allen.

Promising newcomers: Juniors — Spencer Reynolds (F), Shuler Lamothe (D); Sophomore — Joey Baumann (F); Freshmen — Ashton Dozois (G), Hunter Soucy (F), Garrett Morin (F), Taylor Scribner (F), Lucas Perry (F).

Season outlook: The Hornets are about as optimistic as they’ve been in a while, and for good reason: They have a natural goaltender. Dozois is as solid as they come as a freshman, and he will be a big piece of the team’s back end this season. Leavitt needs to find some scoring, and hopes that will come from a committee of players.
