Season Preview

College Hockey:
2006-07 Plymouth State Preview

Up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Plymouth State coach Brett Tryder is coming off of two strong years. He has nine of twelve forwards returning, meaning three full lines will be intact. Senior Goose Lacroix will be counted on to at least equal his more than point a game average from last year, and he’ll be helped by fellow senior Mykul Haun, who will be asked to put the puck in the net, as well as keeping it in the opponents zone. Junior Chris Cadieux, always dangerous in shorthanded situations, will need to come up big, as well as junior Deni Bojadzic, who led the team with five power play goals last year. Two key additions will come in the way of Chris Chambers (Boston Bulldogs/EJHL) and big (6’4″, 230 lbs.) Giovanni DiGiacomo (Boston Bulldogs/AJHL.)

On defense, only two players return. Junior Bobby Dashner and sophomore Pat Turcotte will see plenty of ice time this year. Behind the defense, though, lies a question mark. “Our goalie, Karl Helgesson, left to go to Plattsburgh State. Right now we’ve got a battle going on for the starting goaltender’s position.” Last years’ back-up, Brendan Fahy, is back, and has been coming on strong in pre-season. Also vying for the nod in net is returning junior Trevor Cherry, and Mick Fitzpatrick.
