- Championship history: Amity makes its third appearance in the final with titles in 2008 and 2010. Hand makes its third appearance with a title in 2006 and runner-up finish in 2004 (lost to North Haven).
- Players to watch: Amity: Adam Shea, F, Sr.; Brett McNeil, F, Sr.; Kevin Ryan, F, Jr.; John Uscilla, D, Sr.; Dalton Luciani, D, Jr.; Brian Mosher, G, Sr.; Hand: Ben Solin, F, Jr.; Dan Braumann, F, Sr.; Mike Belliveau, F, So.; Dan Healey, D, Sr.; Jeff Rider, D, So.; Chase Briggs, D, Sr.
- Why Amity will win: Amity (17-8) has a solid goalie and the kind of depth — skating two and sometimes three lines — that can make it competitive with many Division I teams.
- Why Hand will win: Hand (13-10) has a speedy, high-scoring first line that can match Amity’s. But the lack of depth makes Briggs, one of the best D-II goalies in the state, a key factor for the Tigers.
- You should know: Amity defeated Hand 6-3 in their regular-season meeting.
