Summary

After years of UNH clinching home ice and maintaining an excellent record, UNH fell flat out of the gate last season, dropping their first 4 games and ending the season with a losing record. However, UNH really picked it up near the end, as goalie Casey DeSmith replaced DiGirolamo as the starting goalie and UNH’s underclassmen started performing offensively. UNH has a lot of offensive potential, losing only Stevie Moses as part of that punch, and their defense is more experienced than the start of last year, when they were more of a liability than an asset. If DeSmith keeps up his strong performance from last year, and the offense keeps producing, UNH will easily regain a home ice berth.
