One season removed from a state championship, the Morristown High School Varsity Ice Hockey team worked itself to a 6-10-2 record. While this record may seem subpar, the hockey team is also one year removed from losing ten seniors as well as their starting goaltender. Coming into the season, the team was visibly not the same as it was last year. Coming down towards the last stretch of the season, the Colonials need a push to get into the playoff conversation.
Last year’s record was 24-3-1 and while the team is not quite here yet, there is a consensus that the chemistry is building and the hard work of this team will not halt. “The boys make up for a lack of talent by putting in work during practice and paying attention to the little details,” said junior Jay Horan. “The boys have been on a roll lately and we’re feeling good about the upcoming tournaments”. While this team lacks talent and chemistry at times, there is a feeling that they can pull it all together come playoff time.
With not many games left in the season, the Colonials will look to pick up wins against West Morris, Parsippany Hills and Rumson-Fair Haven.
