The strength of our team this year is definitely in our defensive play. Our defensemen are very strong and play very sound positionally. I would also say that we have some speed up front that we can use to our benefit. 

Question marks:

Probably our consistency and our special teams. We have a young team somewhat so we can come out and play a terrific team game and then the next game make a lot of mistakes. We are learning and hope to be playing our best by February at the end of the season. 


This is our first full season since COVID so we have been doing a lot of things that we have done in the past that we have not been able to do in years past because of other regulations. We are excited to be back as a team, and building team chemistry and we can see it with the players on and off the ice together.
