Thatís an interesting one. Would expect him to be a fourth line type guy given that heís never been a big scorer. I wonder if this means one or two more forwards arenít coming back?

Doesn't Pieper have only a half season of eligibility left, or did I hear/remember that incorrectly? If true, could be to cover for him. If not, maybe somebody we don't know about is gone. Just quickly scanning the roster, nobody seems like an obvious candidate to leave early other than Pearson, which would be a major blow.

I think he has one full year left... as mentioned here.

Pieper did march and get a degree according to this photo...

Could be this Edward Lindelow red-shirts since, as far as I can tell, he has no more junior eligibility. I think Hock and Spicer were in same scenario last season and both red-shirted.

I don't think Pearson is leaving early since he is in great spot for development, top line center, and top power play unit. Maybe Keeper and Tralmaks are riskier since undrafted.

I noticed James Tepper, son of Black bear Stephen Tepper, was invited to USA hockey development camp...

Nick Capone was drafted in the American entry draft of QMJHL...

You will also see a Maine native was taken first in that draft.

Capone attended Flying Aces USHL camp...

Great info. We shall see, his USHL camp starts next week on the 11th. Indications are he loves Maine hockey... from sources unknown. :)

You are probably right. Depends on if he wants to give up his college education. According to this link 88% get a college degree going NCAA. Whereas, 20% get a degree after major junior.

Centerman recruit AJ Drobot attended Fargo's tryout camp this week, so this points to him being in Fargo(USHL) next season and not at UMaine.

I did some more digging and found this article.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fancy-stats/wp/2014/06/23/college-hockey-players-undervalued-in-the-nhl-draft-and-heres-why/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.d6f2041cbd21

In it they define success play 200 or more games at the NHL level. This is equivalent of only 2.5 regular seasons worth of games. l If I combine stats from both sets of articles, using simple math with lack of detailed statistics... these articles suggest the following:

1) A prospect that chooses major junior has a 68.4 percent chance of not being a successful NHL player and having no college education.
2) A prospect that chooses college has a 9.94 percent chance of not being a successful NHL player and having no college education.

So if you are interested in hedging your bets on making it as a successful NHLer, you would clearly choose NCAA until these statistics significantly change. I would be interested to see what the percentage is for being a successful NHLer by draft round.

The problem with that approach is, if more people made that decision, the statistics would change.

Maybe statistics would change where more Canadian talent plays in NCAA. And NCAA could respond, for fear of pushing more us talent to d3, by expanding and accepting top d3 schools as D1. Seems like a win-win for NCAA. Acquire more talent and expand its' market. NCAA has to expand given USA hockey is doing its' job of cultivating more talent. If this happened the statistic that would change most is percentage of NHL players from NCAA. This may in turn cause more concentration to fund USA hockey and expansion of the sport junior hockey in US. Then the cycle returns.

Not sure it is much of a problem. Seems like common sense more than anything.

If they really want to grow the game, the NHL should be assisting the NCAA in funding college hockey in the South. College sports are king in the South, even in football, so that's one of the best ways to bring in new fans to the game.

https://www.nhl.com/news/2018-nhl-draft-top-10-goaltenders/c-298954008Interesting...last year Swayman was rated #12...and he did a fine job once he became the starting goalie for Maine..."HOPEFULLY" this bodes well for Maine to have two outstanding goalies once they are together, I would think that Swayman is @ Maine for 3 seasons...just imo on that.
