Season outlook: The Saints return a large number of experienced players from last season’s state runner-up team with experience in both the forward and defensive positions.  The biggest question is who will assume the reins in goal as the Saints will open the year with inexperience at the goaltending position for the second straight season. Juniors Ridge Servidio and Alex Michaud and sophomore Kyle Welsh will all compete for the starting goaltender position.
