Odds and ends: The Hornets received a big blow when Derek Braig, one of the top offensive players last year as a freshman, moved to Maryland. ... With only 30 players in the program, which is down from 35 from last year, staying healthy will be key. ... Nick Chalmers, who was a starter last year, had knee surgery following a football injury and will miss the season. ... Phil Cusolito is a transfer from St. John's Prep, where he played JV.

Coach Chuck Campobasso (4th year, 30-30): "We have all our defenseman back, and Ryan Visconti should do a good job in goal, so we should be able to stop people. But scoring goals will be a big problem. We lost four top seniors and Derek (Braig), so that's 84 percent of our offense. Matt Clemens can score, but he's going to need some help. I'm hoping Derek Marenholz can step up. Stefan Mitrano looks greatly improved."
