The Terriers will be looking for more offense from junior Patrick Harper, sophomore Shane Bowers and freshman Joel Farabee, among others.

With its standout top line from last season departed, the Huskies are led on offense by junior Grand Jozefek with four goals and two assists while senior Liam Pecararo has 4 points (2G, 2A).
