On paper this should have been a building year for the Huskies, after eight members retired from the team last season.  Not so.  The momentum from that highly successful season has carried forward to this one in a very real way.

Huskies #9 Nic Jordan finishes the year atop the team's stat standings, with 4 goals and 12 assists for a total of 16 points.  #17 Hunter Gudmundson has 12 points with 6 goals and 6 assists.#21 Spencer Dorge has 10 points with 7 goals and 3 assists.  #10 Chase Snider has 9 points with 3 goals and 6 assists.
