  • Marty Crouse – St. Joseph
  • Gary Lindgren – Amity
  • Larry Vieira – Darien

The team, coached by Stephen Lane, finished the season with a 9-16-0 record overall.

Lindgren would go on to captain the 1981-1982 and 1982-1983 New Haven teams.

The current University of New Haven men’s hockey team (ACHA-D2), coached by former North Branford High School coach TJ Schatz (East Haven, CT), features several former Connecticut high school hockey players.
