    So at this time, do we know how many recruits are coming in for 2020-21 season and who and what position they play...? I have some down but figure there is someone out there with the facts. Any info would be great. Thanks.

    This is what I found on College Hockey Inc. I don't know how accurate it is. I suspect a few players on the current team won't be invited back and a few of these may not be coming in. Four goal tenders listed.

    Kabore Dunn RD Fort McMurray Oil Barons AJHL
    Donovan Houle-Villeneuve RW Flin Flon Bombers SJHL
    Bryden Sinclair LD Maryland Black Bears NAHL
    Isaac Lambert C Trois-Rivieres Estacades QuMAAA
    Connor Androlewicz G Lincoln Stars USHL
    Tristan Poissant F Johnstown Tomahawks NAHL
    Xavier Henry LD Chilliwack Chiefs BCHL
    Zachary Auge C Aberdeen Wings NAHL
    Josh Langford G Topeka Pilots NAHL
    Matthew Osadick LW Trail Smoke Eaters BCHL
    TimGould RD Alberni Valley Bulldogs BCHL
    Nolan Renwick RW Omaha Lancers USHL

    As far as goalies go, I would bet that Ostman and Androlewiscz are the ones who end up in Orono. Beck has been barely playing, and when he has, badly, and Langford is in NAHL as opposed to Androlewiscz in the USHL. Either way, I bet the starting tandem in goal will be Theissen and Ostman. BHall44 would be the best person to ask for this, but I don't think anyone has seen him in a while.

    Gendron a finalist for the Spencer Penrose Award!! He was selected by fellow coaches. They certainly know more about hockey and how to coach than I do.

    Mr bhall keeps his spreadsheet available. Link is on one of his posts.
    Wonder if he has kept it up?

    Heisenberg lists Langford as coming in next year and Beck crossed out without a projected year, Both are goal tenders. Henry, Auge, Bogdanovitch 2021 and Lambert 2022. Capone de-committed and is going to Connecticut.

    Swayman probably helped ... a little bit, anyway

    He rode him hard all season for COY in Hockey East and to even be mentioned for the Spencer Penrose Award....maybe Swayman can get him a gig with the Bruins...he's been riding his coat-tails all year.

    I believe the conference coaches of the year are automatically penrose finalists. If only those other dumb coaches thought of the winning strategy of telling their goalie to make a billion saves

    Congratulations to Jeremy! Rarely post anymore and only get to a couple of games a year, but disappointed that Jeremy did not get a chance to shine in the post season. We all understand that Jeremy is the only reason why Maine achieved the success they did this year. If you need further evidence read this article on College Hockey News regarding who should win the Richter award https://www.collegehockeynews.com/ne...s-Richter-.php

    The observation that stands out most of all was this:

    "And again, no spoilers here since I said “Swayman over McKay” for Hobey, but the breakdown is obvious: It’s not that Minnesota State would have necessarily been fine without McKay, but Maine would have been one of the worst teams in the country without Swayman.

    On a per-game basis, the Mavericks allowed the second-fewest shots per game in the nation, and fewest goals against. The Black Bears allowed the sixth-most shots per game, but Swayman made sure they conceded the 10th-fewest goals per game. And that’s the whole argument."

    Thats a great way of looking at it. He did more for his team than anyone else, probably countrywide.
    I believe in equality of effort. In life, in hockey in everything.

    Yes he was the MVP for Maine all year long...without him Maine would have been toast...and a good chance of finishing out of the playoff picture in Hockey East...he does deserve the Award and then some(imo)...but I figure and I hope I am wrong but he will come in 3rd to the other two deserving players...but lets hope that facts and looking right at what Swayman meant to his team compared to the other two players...I would say common sense would point that Swayman is the Hobey Baker winner...

    While I did not get the opportunity to see Swayman often this season, I did see a lot of Kawaguchi and, to a lesser extent, Perunovich. I think all three players meant the world to their teams. Kawaguchi's improvement from last season was the biggest reason why North Dakota went from being a middling .500 team to one of, if not the, best team in the country this season. Perunovich likewise contributed significantly to bringing back-to-back titles to Duluth, and perhaps would have led the Bulldogs to a three-peat. To that end, I don't buy the "Swayman should have won because without him, Maine would have been terrible" argument. While it may (likely?) would have been true, the same type of argument could also be made for Kawaguchi ("without him, North Dakota would have been a mediocre team") or Perunovich ("without him, Duluth wouldn't have had a shot at a three peat"). In any event, the Hobey Baker Award is not an MVP award. It goes to the best player in the country. I think the committee did a pretty good job of getting the right players in the Hobey Hat Trick, and any of the three would be a deserving winner.
