Conor Sheary had a breakout season last year for the University of Massachusetts hockey team. But with a new coach and system in place, he could be poised to have another big season for the Minutemen.
Sheary is the leading scorer of returning Minutemen players. In 35 games last season, Sheary scored 12 goals and had 23 assists. He was only one point shy of being a point-per-game player.
"You always want to improve from the year before, so obviously coming back I want to do better than I did last season," Sheary said. "Whether it is point wise, leadership wise, or team wise I just want to improve."
New UMass hockey coach John Micheletto has implemented a new system that is designed to benefit a player with Sheary's abilities.
"[The system] benefits his style of play," Micheletto said. "He has great explosive quickness, and he can separate himself from defensive players. He also has an incredibly quick release, so he has natural elements in his game that we want."
Despite having several good looks for game-tying and game-winning goals, UMass wasn't able to crack the Vermont defense settling for a tough 2-1 loss at Gutterson Fieldhouse on Friday night.
The show will recap the Minnesota weekend, preview the upcoming games against Boston University, feature insight into the program from head coach Don "Toot" Cahoon and show you sides of several players you may not have known about.
There are several features on Paul Dainton, Michael Marcou, T.J. Syner and Kevin Czepiel, plus you can meet several of the team's freshmen and Kevin Moore finds out what guys must do to get ready for games. It's a show any UMass hockey fan will not want to miss!
