Kevin Gagne comes to mind, but he never hit the NHL (was stuck in Norfolk with the Ducks blue line being very deep) and is in Sweden now.
Tyler Johnson (the goalie) hasn't done much in the OHL, and I believe there were big things expected of him if he came to Orono.
M-A-I-N-E! Goooo Blue!
Prospect review by Jeff Cox covering recent tournaments gives praise to Nick Capone.
#15 Yale 16U, Forward, 12/17/01, Shoots Right (Maine)
The Central Illinois Flying Aces (USHL) affiliate player was dominant at times in both the River Rats Jamboree and ECC Labor Day Cup. He is huge and loves to play physically. He can control and protect the puck for long stretches along the wall and down low. He has a good shot that he gets off quickly. He has pro upside and is a huge get for Ben Guite and the Maine staff. He’s a newcomer to Salisbury this winter, but expect him in the USHL next season.
Kyla Kawamura scored 1 goal and 1 assist in his debut with Powell River (BCHL). For his efforts he was named Energy Player of the Game. Highlights can be found at link below.
Brent Hill is now playing for Islanders HC (NCDC) coached by Sean Tremblay.
bad new for BC could be good new for UMaine. Cedar Rapids has a lot of forwards fighting for roster spots. Harry Roy being a '00 has tough competition. These injuries could play a significant role in him making the team. Oct. 3 is final cut to roster size 23 for ushl teams.
On another note, what has happened to Brent Hill in calendar year 2017? He started off great last year and has fallen off a cliff in the last nine months.
I would be interested to know where you got the impression Brent Hill has "fallen of a cliff"? I thought he played his best hockey down the stretch of last season. He finished top 30 in PPG in CCHL, played excellent on PK, tenacious forecheck, and played great during the playoffs. Playing for Jason Clarke at Carleton Place, who runs one of the best junior teams around, was great experience for him. Just not sure what warrants your negative outlook on Hill?
Ben Beck was traded from Lone Star (NAHL) to Brookings (NAHL) where he will now team up with fellow UMaine recruit Max Sasson.
All Maine recruits on USHL 30 man rosters have made the final 23 man roster

Crosby probably wouldn't even be on BC's top two lines next year
Watched a fun USHL game last night against Sioux Falls and Fargo. Final score 2-1 Sioux Falls. The game featured 4 UMaine recruits in total. All three goals in the game were scored by UMaine recruits. Adam Dawe scored both for Sioux Falls and now had 4 goals in 3 games, while JSS scored hte lone goal for Fargo and how has 3-1-4 through 5 games. Dawe looks very comfortable in the USHL and the Fargo trifecta are looking good while they play for a very good coach/teacher in Cary Eades.
2 goal game tonight for JSS including the game winner. He now has 5 goals in 6 games.
