Reflecting on last season he could not be more blessed to be able to coach an outstanding group of men and hockey players. He stated that he was very pleased with their commitment to the team and the strides they made during the season. Throughout the season the team experienced some adversity as well as many successes.  The team earned their program’s first Regional top 10 ranking and finished their third straight DVCHC post season appearance with a tough loss in the Semi Final game against Bryn Athen.  Going into this season with their senior leadership and a veteran goaltender, Coach believes the team has the tools needed to make a strong competitive run in league play as well as fight for a post season appearance in both the DVCHC &  Regional playoffs.
