Vermont was a very competitive team in a tough Hockey East last year. I think they finished around third after BU and Northeastern. Does anyone know if they lost many of their better players or anything?

Vermont graduated three of their top 10 scorers but were still a fairly young team.

The bulk of their stats came from a huge Sophomore class that figures to be better next season.

Their goalie was a Freshman.

Vermont gave Boston University all they could handle in the Frozen Four semi-final and actually led with 10 minutes remaining in the game.

They will be a stern test for DU opening weekend.

One of Vermont's top players, Viktor Stalberg, was a junior who signed with Toronto after the end of the season.

VT is still going to be tough on opening weekend.

Thanks for the heads up on Stalberg.

He was Vermont's top scorer by a considerable margin (24g 22a).
