Coach: Skip Capone (first year)

Last year’s record: 10-2 (lost in East A playoffs)

Returning letter-winners: Seniors — Jess Cote, Sam Cote, Sierra Thistlewaite, Mikaela St. Laurent, Shawna Baine, Laurianne Murphy, Brie Wilson; Juniors — Norah Schlax, Lauren Lecompte; Sophomores — Shaima Naji, Kristina Blais.

Key losses: Emily Paione, Natalie Rousseau, Sadie Poulin, Bri Lajoie, Kelsey Dumond, Mariah Carrier.

Promising newcomers: Junior — Erika Thibeault; Freshmen — Morgan Eisman, Sasha Leclair, Allison Frechette.

Season outlook: With a new-to-the-sport coach, the Blue Devils are going to have a hard time replicating the 10-win season of a year ago, but that doesn’t mean it’s not attainable. The Devils have a very solid defensive unit in front of goalie Sam Cote, and with a bit of speed up front and some work on their transition game, they could be knocking on the door again come playoff time.
