It's hard to believe RIT's run to the Frozen Four was three seasons ago.
This year, the Tigers are hoping to recapture that 2010 magic with a return to the NCAA tournament, and eventually, the Frozen Four.
The Tigers think the talent is there, especially on offense, where they return three of the top five scorers from a year ago.
"We have a really good group coming back to us, particularly up front," said Wilson. "We have a lot of depth up front and a lot of people that have proven themselves. On defense we're really young. So that's the big question mark I think."
Another questionmark is who will replace Shane Madolora in net. Sophomore Jordan Ruby and junior Josh Watson will split time to start, and are pushing each other to be better.
"I think it's a great thing to have," said Watson. Especially at the collegiate level where there's only about 30 games in the season. You don't really have time to have a falter in your schedule or anything like that. Having two guys pushing each other to be at their best every single night is definitely a positive."
Jordan Ruby agreed.
"I just focus more on the process more than the outcomes. Then soon enough you'll be winning games."
The entire team will be tested out of the gate. RIT opens the season Thursday, October 11 on the road against number three Michigan.
