Outlook: Scoring doesn't figure to be a concern this season; the offense returns the entire starting attack and two of three midfielders. The graduation of Bray Malphrus should be offset by the return of senior defenseman Matt Lovejoy from a season-ending shoulder injury. Senior Rob Fortunato will get the start in the net, but freshman Austin Geisler is waiting in the wings.
