Hockey captain Matt Bailey on the hot-handed Seawolves

The Seawolf hockey team is off to a hot start at 3-1, with big wins over #10 Quinnipiac and #12 Denver this year. Co-captain Matt Bailey is pacing the team with four goals heading into Western Collegiate Hockey Association play, and the senior co-captain took a moment to talk to the Northern Light about the Seawolves’ hot start. TNL: You guys got off to a great start after some major offseason changes. How was this team able to come together so quickly? Bailey: I think everyone was really excited coming into the season with all the new changes and Coach Matt (Thomas) is just a really motivational guy. It’s a good group of guys, a really close knit group and we’re playing within the system and it’s paying off so far.”
