Chris MacPherson is getting his squad ready at Salve Regina, and he knows what he’s got so far. “We have some pretty good speed and a pretty solid defensive corps, but a young team overall, with a lot of freshman and sophomores.”
Amongst the returning players, junior defenseman Brian Goodwin will be leaned on heavily. He’ll be joined by fellow junior Mike Kravchuk, and sophomore Zach Sufilka. A three-way battle is ensuing for the starting goaltender’s slot between sophomore Ryan Comerford, and juniors Steve Belle-Isle and Chase Goodrich.
Pacing the offense will be seniors Ryan Doyle and Travis Hampton. Last year they accounted for 9 out of the team’s 25 power plays goals. Sophomore Conor McCahill and junior and Mike Mallette are expected to contribute as well.
