He scored 11 goals with 11 assists and 20 penalty minutes in Empire league play and scored 9 goals with 8 assists for Catholic Memorial.

In November he committed to playing college hockey at Cornell in 2014-15. Starrett scored 11 goals with 36 assists and 94 penalty minutes in 48 regular season games and had 1 goal with 2 penalty minutes in five playoff games. He was selected to play in the USPHL Premier Division all-star game along with teammates Nolan Vesey and Joe Lappin.
