Concerns: Leadership and goaltending.
Coach’s outlook: “We were one win away in our final three games of last season to qualify for a state tournament berth for the first time since 2006, but we fell short. All the players from that team are back and have been hungry and motivated to accomplish more this season. That has been their theme the last 9 months. With only three seniors on the team our concern will be leadership and confidence. We’ll be looking for one of the veteran players to step up and lead and a goalie to emerge.”
First game: Saturday (7 p.m.) at Triton
