  • Solid team leadership returning next season is huge. They will set the Barr for the rest of the team pretty high. Will miss Houle but the heart and soul returns with some nice intriguing additions. Agree, next season will be a blast.
    I believe in equality of effort. In life, in hockey in everything.

    • Alfond is on Denvers schedule jan 3/4. The team will have that one circled on their calendar for sure!

        Interesting they scheduled them when the students are gone

          They don't have much choice of when to bring in non-conference opponents. It's usually early or during break. I'm just glad that they are on the home schedule!

          On a side note....what is going on with this forum?

            Hopefully the ticket office will make some balcony seats available for purchase so it isn't empty. The demand will certainly be there.

            • Guess my source was correct. Great to see Natl champs come to town and with student gone maybe I can get a ticket : )
              I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.

                This is awesome news. Does this mean Maine goes to Denver in the 2025/2026 season?

                • There may be another high profile transfer but someone on the current roster may be out. 50/50

                    I would think so(?)...home and home 2 game series

                    • The news had a piece where they mentioned Nadeau and Brazeale both had offers to go pro and turned the offers down to come back next year. So we should feel fortunate. And fortunate that the transfers want to come to Maine and play big games.

                      The lines jumbled a lot this year, so hard to predict what the lines will look like. I’m sure whatever we guess will wind up not being what it ends up as. The pairings were more steady. I thought Hopkins played well in his own end but needed work on his break out passing and puck lugging, which could be adjustment to game speed from BCHL to NCAA. I didn’t think Arnott was strong in his own end down the stretch. I could also see Somers being pushed off a year since he only played in SJHL and likely needs a year in a better league. Also, not sure who would be a third goalie this year? Likely a walk on type.

                      Here is just a guess so we can see the way the team is set up:

                      Seniors - 6
                      Juniors - 6
                      Sophomores - 11
                      Freshmen - 8

                        Denver coming to Alfond for two games will be a plus on there schedule...hopefully Quinnipiac will be also on the schedule and coming to Maine ...played @QU last season...with those two teams plus HEA schedule would make for a real strong schedule.

                            Not sure about QU I think they wanted to play other HE teams and we filled the obligations of the home and home last year. It could be another ECAC team through

                                It is the Nuetral Zone rating if I could find it.
