While UMass didn't have the season it wanted this year, next year is already off to a great start.
Star defensemen Scott Morrow and Ryan Ufko will return to UMass for their junior seasons, according to a source.
Morrow led the Minutemen in points this past season with 31 and was named a Hockey East Second Team All-Star. Ufko finished third on the team in points this season with 24.
Here's a look at how the two have become strong NHL prospects.
