The Skinny: Ouellette (10-11-21) returns as the Bulldogs leading scorer from a year ago, along with two of their top four defensemen in Billins (5-11-16) and Wysopal (2-12-14).
He Said It: “When he started off last year, he started off slowly, like a lot of sophomores do. You make the assumption that because you’re a year older things will come easier. But in the second half of the season he really played well for us. He’s an excellent playmaker, and he can help on the power play and penalty kill, and will see a lot of ice time this year.” – Daniels, talking to Inside College Hockey about Ouellette.
