Even though Curry’s men’s hockey team lost to Endicott 2-1 in OT in the CCC playoffs, they still put together a memorable season, which saw them break into the national Top Ten in DIII hockey.
They finished the season with an overall record of 16-9-2.
Even after the heartbreaking loss, forward, Timmy Kent, is now focused on where the Curry men’s hockey team will go next season.
”As far as expectations for next season, I think everyone who’s returning to the program next year, regardless of class, fully expects to win a championship next year,” said Kent. “We felt like we had a team good enough this year to do it and fell short.”
He added, “Next year for us the expectation is to win the CCC Championship and be playing in the National tournament in March.”
Curry goalie, Reid Cooper, had 505 saves overall for the season with a 2.07 goals against average. His save percentage was .922%. They also had a one empty net goal against.
The Curry College Men’s Hockey coaching staff, teammates and fans are pleased with this goalie’s performance.
“Cooper is great and I’m very happy with his effort,” said Head Coach, Peter Roundy. “He’s just one of those high level athletes.”
Once again, Curry played their home games at the Canton Ice House and they welcomed more than 3,000 fans to the arena over the season.
When it comes to the players on the team, forward Timmy Kent led the team with a whopping 33 points. He also was a First team All-CCC (Commonwealth Coast Conference) for Curry College and Kalle Sundell went Second team All-CCC for Curry College,
“It feels good to make the first team and get that individual accolade but feels a bit bitter sweet since we didn’t win the CCC,” said Timmy Kent. “Moving forward I hope to continue improving and put together a better campaign next year. Hopefully leading to pro hockey in the future.”
