Being a last place team, the Bayhawks felt comfortable enough to shake things up with their roster, trying to gain any momentum into next season. Head coach Dave Cottle likes the potential gain of the deal.

“I think we’ve turned the corner on effort, we’ve turned the corner on enthusiasm, and this was the best game that we had execution wise all year.”
The Bayhawks have been more aggressively offensively of late, recording their fourth straight game of at least 50 shots on goal.
