    Stevensen won’t be in for at least a couple seasons. She is only 16 I think.

    This years incoming class features higher rated players Coffman and Maclean. They seem to be regarded as highly rated players. And also twins of former Maine baseball coach, the Trimper twins. They are gritty types as they played boys hockey in Maine since Maine high school hockey isn’t big and doesn’t afford opportunities like other states. I think this will be a solid and aggressive class from what I’ve read up on. This combined with the fact that six current and returning players played in international competition lately. They only questions remain if Kucera and Blair are off the squad and not allowed back. In general I think they have a bright future. But like I mentioned before I was disappointed with how they finished from January through end of last season.

    Nice to have you on board. I think this might make three of us here now!

    If you go to 7th page back in this thread you can read more about the known recruits.

    Also, this coaching staff has been recruiting a lot in Europe lately and they haven’t been making those recruits public knowledge. So it wouldn’t surprise me if there are a couple of surprise freshmen.

    I am hoping Kucera can come back, she was just hitting her stride. I think she had talent and could have been a real rock on the blue line. But if they don’t allow her to come back I hope they can use that scholly to get an impact freshmen bluliner. My fear is losing two defensemen early will hurt us in our own zone.

    Agreed...Kucera strongest D for next year. Tedenby strong forward. Shocked with the captain choice...why?

    In general, at UMaine hockey, the captains and assistant captains are chosen by the players. They vote... more or less. So, my guess is she is a leader in the eyes of her teammates. Also she is from Maine and that makes me happy. 😏

    Re: Maine Hockey

    Bottom line on "PAPER" this could be a very good team, with that said the BS that was last year...and that being no leadership on the ice has to be a non-factor...with the NEW Captain on board has to mean she brings something in the locker room, on the ice during practice but as a hold someone that is a dedicated player, even if it means not as a regular....last years recruiting class plus the players that have been there for 3 and some going on there 4th year should be a positive....they need to bring back the magic of 2017-18 and NOT the sour ending of 2018-19. AND they need to start to beat the #1 thru #4 teams in Hockey East. Talk is Talk, what needs to happen is being accountable on the ice and away from it.

    Sounds like a leadership issue in past...hope the returners, along with the newbies, bring a little chip on their shoulder and play with some grit. Sometimes a failure will lead to bigger success

    That's what will be...how they respond from last year...easy when you win but bumps in the road and how you deal with it a year after is the question. Myself I think they come back to prove the magic year was not a fluke.

    New recruit for fall of 2020... Kennedy Little, right shot defensemen, from Andover, MN. She is described as a smallish defensemen that plays the point well, makes good passes, good passing out of her own zone, good instincts when to pinch. She is a 3.5/5 as graded by Nuetral Zone which is indicative of a solid recruit. Here is a page with some video footage, she is number 13. https://www.hudl.com/profile/8693881/Kennedy-Little

    Re: Maine Hockey

    Question? Is Nicole Pateman still going to play for Maine in 2019-20 season? She played 4 games, was she red-shirted? or injured during the season.

    I don’t know. She didn’t play much despite being highly rated. I do think Maine had a lot of upperclassmen in her way. Hopefully we get to see more of her play next season.

    Here is another case of women recruits not getting much publicity...

    Highlights...

    Not much info on her. Rated 3/5 from nuetral zone. Described as tall winger with a nose for the net and has scoring touch.

    One has to worry a little about hearing "wake up call"... No one wants to send their daughter into a bad situation. "BS last year", "No leadership". Even if there was bad leadership from Captain, Assistant Captain (if that is what is being referred to) Doesn't ultimate leadership come from the Coaching Staff ? The girls are not kids but they still need a little help navigating it all and being the best they can be

    Couldnt access link about "Fellowship"...is that more options for hockey experience in the off season

    No, not about hockey in off season. It was money awarded to broaden her/his experience. Thought it would be odd if she was leaving. Looks like she isn't. and if she isn't leaving and also getting money for overseas travel... you would naturally deduce she is back on the team with a slap to the wrists at most. But, ya never know...

    From link I sent in case you can't access it again...
