    One thing off the wish list!
    Awesome! I hope you are right in your assessment. If he can be like Less, consistent if not spectacular, that would fit. While I am greedy, maybe a tad more "****/vinegar" and harder shot! Like I stated earlier, if this kid plays out, have him paired with Yau to mentor and also "cover" for him. So with that said here as the pairings: Yau/Markell Matthews/Less Demler/Han with Roth (needs to regain confidence and form) and Dimaio in the picture to give lefty/righty options (not essential but helps especially on PK). Thoughts GreenBear???

    MVP - Will Graber Once he started getting hot his TREE line and team got rolling with some much needed offensive production. It is no surprise that the above recipients were greatly helped out by Graber as we have discussed during the season.

    Rookie of the Year - Brendan Less We all know how difficult it is to play defense let alone as a freshman but Less did with consistency and without panache which is exactly what you would want out of a D. He played in all scenarios 5 on 5, PP(little bit) and PK

    Most Improved - Shane Sellar You talk about fulfilling your role and playing honestly and the right way...that's him. He frankly does more with less and maximizing his strengths and minimizing his improvement areas.

    Thoughts GreenBear?

    I'd have stayed with Buffalo for MVP. Most of the time, the team played differently, and with more confidence when he was in net. That's not to say that Clark did not play exceptionally well at time, but Buffalo had established himself as the starter and was on top of his game most nights, and the team responded. But Graber and Buffalo were the only players who really could have staked a claim to MVP this past season.

    I could have gone with Less as ROY. I'm fine w/ Foreman. But I saw a lot in Less, and I think that because he's a defenseman and doesn't put up points he gets overlooked by a lot of people (not teammates or coaches--more fans, etc). Less was my unsung hero on the ice. That's not related to the team's unsung hero award which goes beyond that--I defer to players and coaches judgment w/ Rymsha & Shatzer of course--but I really liked Less' quiet game. He doesn't stand out, but he may have been the most dependable guy in the Dartmouth defensive zone all year.

    Sellar was a shoo-in for most improved. I mean, how could it go to anyone else?

    Carl Hesler's return to Dartmouth appears official. He's listed again on the team roster, as a senior. The current players have been bumped up a class, and the incoming players aren't there yet; I'll keep an eye out. Hopefully soon.

    Also, Jamie McLaughlin is not listed, so he may have left the program.
