With the majority of last season’s roster returning, and depth at all positions, Kennesaw State’s club ice hockey team looks to dominate in the regular season.
Fans should be on the lookout for veteran players Devin Bousquet, David Kurns and team captain Wes Davis. These three impact players are prepared to lead the Owls to another national championship.
The last time KSU’s club ice hockey team won the national championship was in 2007, over 10 years ago.
“It’s my last season, so I want to win a national championship,” said senior forward Alex Dolhon. “The team did it in ’07, and we are looking to get back there this year.”
Getting to nationals will not be easy, as the team faces some tough opposition from its rivals the University of Georgia, the University of Florida and the University of Tennessee.
“Two years ago we beat [UGA] and last year we lost to them, so we’re looking to get revenge,” said Dolhon. “That’s our rival as you know, so we’re looking to get a big win over [UGA] when we play them at the end of September.”
Despite the big-name schools, Dolhon seems unfazed and believes the Ice Owls have the potential to go undefeated in the regular season.
The Ice Owls begin home season play on Friday, Sept. 8, against the University of Mississippi at 10 p.m. Home games are held at the IceForum at Town Center.
