Hockey Team Ready for New Season

The Bulldogs head into the 2009-2010 season with 21 returning letterwinners from last year.

Ferris finished the 2008-2009 season with five losses in its final six regular season contests. In the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) playoffs, the Bulldogs were swept by the University of Nebraska-Omaha on the road in a first round exit.

This season, the Bulldogs will lean on the experience of their defense to carry the team. The defense finished fifth in the CCHA in goals allowed a year ago and seven of the eight defensemen have returned. The unit is so deep that head coach Bob Daniels believes he will have trouble deciding which players to dress.
