Joshua Boyd of the Ipswich Chronicle wrote a nice feature story on hockey's rising senior forward Shawn Saunders. The article looks at some of Shawn's offseason workout regiment, his career overall at UMass and his relationship with his father and uncle. When asked about the team this season, "This year's going to be a pretty good year. We have our starting goalie [Paul Dainton] back. I've been skating with him all summer and he looks really good," said Shawn. "We've also got some pretty good quality freshmen coming in. A lot of the guys on the team are underrated. We have a lot of skilled guys who could step up at any point."
