    USA Hockey Select 17 development camp has wrapped up. In 5 games, Max Sasson (2-2-4) and Harry Roy (1-3-4) had good statistical camps.
    Happy to see Meyers got an invite. I think he good be a good one.

    Are you surprised there hasn't been any news come out on next year's roster? Maine still has way too many players at this point.

    Usually we know who the captains are at this point, so I'm surprised we don't at least know that. I'd expect the schedule to be released in the next couple of weeks as well. Apparently there are #nodaysoff for Red...when I spoke to him about PK's HOF induction last week he was at a rink in Buffalo. No offseason for this man!

    It seems like in the past captains usually are announced before the end of the school year so that is strange. Maybe there's a chance one of the candidates won't return? They definitely are late on the schedule as well. Apparently there will be a game played in Portland but I'm not sure which one it will be. I would think Vermont would be the best option, but where they are traveling to Europe weekend before that wouldn't be ideal.

    Usually the norm has been that the Captains & Assistant Captains have been named around the time of the Hockey Banquet (1st week of May)...but this year there has been no word or talk about it...which in a sense is puzzling, but then everything these days with RG are a secret....as far as players coming in this is what I have understood and things can and will change without notice. But here's who I have heard is coming in as this years recruits: Emil Westerlund/forward - Adrain Holesinky/forward - Eduards Tralmaks/forward - Brady Keeper/d-man - Cam Spicer/d-man - Alexis Binner/d-man - Veli Matti Tiuraniemi/d-man - Jeremy Swayman/goaltender.....Red-Shirt d-man Oliver Herner...Transfers Tim Doherty/forward - Canon Pieper/Forward. Also there was some talk that Adam Dawe/forward was coming this fall to Maine, some have reported that he is not coming this fall, but the fall of 2018. So all in all this could be gospel or this has flaws in it....just going from what I have heard from the end of the season to now today. Maybe others can UPDATE this list....HAPPY 4th to ALL..!!!

    This is kind of weird, more of the us vs them mentality?? Keeping fans out of the loop is not good for success of the program if you ask me

    Typically the players select captain and assistant captains with the coaching staff's approval. He is either doing away with the concept or he is waiting for two or three players to step up before assigning them leadership roles. Pure conjecture on my part. As you say, he is so secretive who knows what he's thinking.

    The strange thing for me is its pretty obvious the captains will be some combination of Vesey, Hamilton, Lacroix, and Michel. There are some years where it's not as obvious and maybe waiting would make some sense.

    It looks like you have a very interesting freshman class. Kind of a UN of junior hockey. There is one name who has disappeared from the list. What became of Lucas Michaud from South Portland? He committed about two years ago and had a bunch of UMO alums in his family.

    As I've said in the past, York County is my second home and my favorite place to catch (and release) Smallies and Largemouths.. I hope things start to come together for you this season. I'll be rooting for you - except when you come to Matthews.

    Hasn't vesey been benched numerous times for crimes against reds systems? Why would he be a captain?

    He definitely has had lapses mentally, but he should be Maine's best player next year and he will be a senior. He seems like a very hard worker to me and sets an example for the other guys.

    Brady Keeper - Kings
    Ben Meyers - NY Islanders
    Steve Mundinger - NY Islanders

    Also,
    Harry Roy and Max Sasson are currently participating in USA Hockey's Select 17 (2000's) development camp. Select 16 rosters will be announced shortly, of which, Bogdanovich and Capone are eligible.

    Pretty sure Harry Roy will start the season in Cedar Rapids. Being a High School aged kid, I would expect him to stick. Mark Carlson doesnt typically bring a high school kid in and then move him.

    Michaud decommitted quite some time ago and is still looking to find a D1 home.

    Re: UMaine Black Bears Recruiting

    Came across this interview from a month and a half ago that I had not seen before. Since there isn't much of any news coming out of Orono these days maybe this morsel will help hold us over.

    Nick Capone notched a hat trick on day 4 of the USA Hockey Select 16 (2001) camp. He is currently tied for 5th in scoring at the camp with 3-4-7 and was named to the All-Star team.
    good article about Nick

    Red and Ben have done a great job getting some of the younger guys. It will take time but I think Maine is in pretty good shape moving forward.

    So will you be OK if the team wins only 10-11 games and finishes 10th or 11th in Hockey East....myself I figure he [Gendron] needs to post a .500 season, say 16-16-2 or 15-15-4 regular season record and 7th or 8th place finish in Hockey East...because @ the Banquet in May he said that Maine would WIN HOCKEY EAST this season....hhhmmmmm, that's a lofty goal.

    At this point I'd be satisfied with a road win
