DII men's hockey eager for Friday's opener vs. Virginia Tech
September 19, 2017 | Lynchburg, Va.
In preparation for Liberty University's ACHA Division II men's hockey team's season debut against Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Hockey (MACH) rival Virginia Tech, Friday at 3:45 p.m. at the LaHaye Ice Center, Club Sports Video & Media Specialist Monika McKenzie produced this video preview.
She interviewed first-year Head Coach Ben Hughes, who served as head captain on Liberty's ACHA DI men's hockey team the past two seasons, as well as Flames senior wing Caleb Weesner, sophomore defenseman Jackson Roy, and junior forward Jeff Wilson for the video.
"We've got a lot of talent, so that's why expectations are really high," Weesner said. "We have a really good chance of going very far this year and making a lot of noise."
"We are really excited about this season," Roy added. "We lost some key components to our team last year, but we did a great job of replacing those guys that we lost and we definitely expect to make a run at the national championship again this year."
