First-year goaltender Shane Soderwall recorded 98 saves in the contest, which tied an NCAA record, and broke a Curry one that was previously set in 1996. Soderwall backstopped the Colonels in 21 games, recording 608 saves and a .949 win percentage at 15-4. He was named as the Commonwealth Coast Conference Goaltender and Rookie of the Year earlier this season, and was recently named a finalist for the Joe Concannon Award, presented annually to the best American-born college hockey player in New England at the DII/DIII level.

The Colonels wrapped up another successful season at 21-6-1 overall during Peter Roundy’s third year as head coach. Roundy was recently named one of just 12 finalists for the American Hockey Coaches Association Coach of the Year Award. Over three years at the helm, Roundy has coached the Colonels to a 59-21-3 record.
