2011-12 captains: Peter Dauten (Litchfield), Tyler Smith (Nonnewaug), Greg Valentine (Shepaug) and Ryan Gannon (Litchfield).

Coach's outlook for 2011-12: "With 20 players, aided by the addition of Nonnewaug to the co-op, we will be a very different team than in years past. Veteran goalkeeper Peter Dauten (Litchfield) will be the rock of the team. Alex Howe (Shepaug), Ryan Gannon (Litchfield) and Greg Valentine (Shepaug) lead the returning players on offense. Rob Murray (Litchfield) will be the lone returning defenseman. Stephen Nalband (Litchfield) is the only fourth-year player on the team. Many newcomers will factor in right away. Tyler Smith, Jack Ryan and Clayton Ambler will add offense from Nonnewaug. Kevin Boylan and Aleksey Warner will add to the defense from the Chiefs. Drew Stone from Litchfield will add size to the offense. From Shepaug, defensemen Brendan Dowler and Sam Ianucci and forward freshman Cristian Stuart will see plenty of regular time. Rob Kleros (Nonnewaug), Kyle Goldstein (Shepaug), Travis Fitch (Shepaug), Drew Benjamin (Nonnewaug) will factor in as they adjust to the speed of high school hockey.

"As always, our primary goal is to win the Berkshire Cup, beating Housatonic-Northwestern-Wamogo in our two meetings this year. After that, we have a better shot at making both the SWC tournament and the State tournament than we have in the past few years."
