Last season was a tale of two halves for Will Graber and Dartmouth.
The Big Green started 2-8-1, then an upset win at Denver in mid-December propelled them to a strong second semester. Dartmouth went 14-9-1 over its last 24 games, almost getting to the ECAC Hockey semifinals, but fell just short at Harvard.
Graber’s year mirrored that of his team. He had just a goal and three assists through the first 11 games, but the tables turned with a goal in that 5-4 win over the Pioneers. He potted eight goals and added 14 assists over the last 24 games.
Now, a year older and more experienced, the junior forward hopes to build on his success to push Dartmouth to the ECAC Hockey Championships in Lake Placid, N.Y., for the first time since 2016.
