Adam Dawe was hot this weekend scoring 3 goals and an assist in two games. He is now tied for third in USHL for goals scored.

Ben Meyers played well last night and scored a goal and two assists. He has 7 points in the last 4 games.

Those two, along with the Great Dane, are who Im most excited to see in Orono next year.

Me too. But I also think Drobot is going to be a good one. I am hoping Butala and possibly Spicer can bring much solid defensive zone play. It is pretty rare when all of the recruits are from USHL. I think this means it will be one of the strongest classes we've seen.

Also 5 recruits with connections to the Hounds (Dawe, Farrell, Gould, Morrissey, Renwick). Four of the five from Atlantic Canada. Also worth noting that Carson Mackinnon, and Ethan Crossman were apart of the Atlantic Canada/Notre Dame Hounds recruit pipeline at one point and chose the Major Junior route. Due to age Dawe, Farrell, and Gould are pretty comfortably going the NCAA route. Breen, Morrissey and Renwick could still be enticed. Breen is the most important one to keep and eye. He is a game changer.

Other Notre Dame Hounds from eastern Canada... Scott Pellerin(536 nhl games) and Teddy Purcell(571 nhl games). Looks like we're two for two if you come from eastern Canada and go through Notre Dame and then UMaine.

Hopefully all five make it to Maine in the end, they could add to the list of former eastern Canadian Black bears...

Scott Pellerin, Shediack, NB
David Ellis, Hunter River, PEI
Dan Fowler, Fredrickton, NB
Steve Widmeyer, Bedford, NS
Marcel Pineau, Charlottetown, PEI
Cory LaRose, Campbellton, NB
Ted Purcell, St. John's, NFLD
Zach Sill, Truro, NS
Andrew Sweetland, Bonavista, NFLD

I was hoping to see Beck. Then I noticed he wasnt on their roster. So I looked on NAHL site at transactions and saw he was released. I wonder what that is all about?

He is on the Syracuse (NCDC) roster inactive list. Wildly inconsistent all year and currently injured is a recipe for not making the cut. Feb 6 was USA hockeys trade/drop deadline.

So I heard over in another thread that Oliver Wahlstrom has decomitted from Harvard. Is it true, and if it is could he be convinced to come to Maine?.

I hope not. Red has Maine going in the right direction and the last thing they need is a sideshow like this.

Fact is he probably can't get through admissions at harvard. Harvard is notorious for committing players that will never make it there just to look good on the recruiting trail.

JUST a gain for either BU/BC...which they really already don't need. He should of stuck to his 1st choice, but then that's over and done with...kind of hate the way the recruiting trail is going these days. But oh well...THANKS for the info.

The bu/bc thing could be just more of the same, building a name recognition. Maybe could go to mjrs?

Looks like hand injury. Not any insider info from me. But from me, I have had injury before and take 8 weeks. Assuming it is broken bone. If ligament damage, we don't know. But broken bones 8 weeks I think.
