Led by captains Rob Devaney, a forward and the team’s leading scorer, and Evan Morelli, the starting goaltender who has posted five shutouts this season, the Rockets are in prime position to make noise in the postseason, regardless of which tournament they make.
“We’re always stressing in our room the importance of humility and working hard,” said coach Mark Doherty. “There’s no shortcuts. If we keep playing well, I’m looking forward to the tournament.”
