    I doubt Duda knows much about the clearinghouse, he knows what he was told by Maine. Like I said it’s a rumor, started on twitter, made it to Maine Facebook page. When the kid is on campus for summer school we will know if he is enrolled at UMaine.

      I hear what your saying. Just sounds like a rumor that has taken on more baggage with anyone's guess in how in turns out. But if he's in school...then I will think he plays sometime down the line, either 4-6 games into the season or the second semester. If he's on the team...he makes the D-depth that much better.

It exists solely to ensure that money and benefit funnel to coaches and administrators and not players.

        The NCAA could take away the national titles and I wouldn't care. I was there. They happened. Having to remove a banner or edit a record book has no bearing whatsoever on that.
        See North Carolina BBall, NCAA is joke

        • I have a feeling Duda might already be on campus or will be in the near future. Based on last year’s team staying the whole summer, I’d imagine the same is the case this year.

          My suspicion for Duda being on Campus already is due to the photo that the Twitter page posted. He is clearly in a Maine jersey, perhaps that is from his official visit but it could mean he is already there. I think we see him suit up sooner rather than later, we have seen plenty of players making it through NCAA clearinghouse lately and the fact that he seemingly had an amateur contract makes me optimistic.

          Drew, you’re thinking of Keith Yandle, brother of Brian. Brian played for UNH, Keith was committed to UNH but was academically ineligible, committed to Maine and was never deemed eligible there either.

            Let’s hope that is true. Should be great addition to the d corp

              My first thought was that it was a photoshop, like a jersey swap that's really common in the pros when guys get traded, but looking at the photo again it does look like it could possibly be real. I guess we will find out one way or another in relatively short order.

                Lol that was my thought originally too but it looks too real. If it is photoshopped, well done to the person who did it.

                  RPI schedule is correct. Maine Hockey has not been home for Homecoming since October 2016. This allows for both hockey and football to be home without making Saturday a complete logistical disaster.

                      Is UMaine the only D1 athletic dept. that can't handle 2 sporting events at different times in 1 day? I mean a football game at 1pm and a hockey game at 7pm is not exactly something that seems difficult to deal with.

                      • Duda is on campus right now, I can confirm.

                        • If Duda is eligible to play....will the naysayers accept it......or will they go on being drama queens about it?

                            Great if all the boxes are checked to play. He can only make the defenseman a stronger unit, a plus ....as I said before this could be a very tough team to play each and every night.

                              Pretty sure that means he is getting ready for next season. Never seen him play but 2nd round draft pick should mean nfl scouts see something good. Be interesting to see how he fits not just on the team( probably the easy part ) but overall in a very different part of the world.

                                Different part of the world? Maine and Moscow have a lot in common, lol. Both phkn cold places. I wish the guy the best of luck. Sounds like a really talented D who can move the puck with ease.

                                I believe in equality of effort. In life, in hockey in everything.
