If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Last year, UMass-Boston boasted one of the most dynamic lines in Division 3 hockey, with Colin Larkin centering crafty Nolan Redler (Winchester, Mass.) and big right wing Zack Bross.
Larkin, last year’s Sid Watson Award winner as the top player in Division 3, graduated as one of the most decorated players in program history. But his wingers are back and picking up right where they left off for the ninth-ranked Beacons (8-1), who head into the weekend as the first-place team in the New England Hockey Conference.
UMB coach Pete Belisle (Manville, R.I.) said in the preseason he had no intention of splitting up Redler and Bross, and he hasn’t.
