Salinas’ six steals ranked third on the team, while his six ejections drawn was the second most on the year. For his career, Salinas has 204 total points on 163 total goals and 41 assists.
Lee, who was named team captain prior to the season, played in all seven games, finishing second on the team with 12 goals, while adding five helpers to finish third on the squad with 17 points. The senior added a steal and an ejection drawn on the season. For his career, Lee finished with 178 points on 135 goals and 43 assists.
