New info on the women's team...
I wish we would get similar announcement for men's incoming class.
Got another 15 yr old commit from Quebec, sounds like a good player if he shows up.

Maine Hockey Love it or Leave it
Guillaume Richard, a left-shot 03 D from Academie de Hockey Denis Francoeur in Quebec, has committed to UMaine. Good mobility, skates with head up, defends with feet. Was a standout at last week's BU Prep Showcase where Ben Guite was a coach.— Jeff Cox (@JeffCoxSports) August 8, 2018

Also, don't forget and overlook Spicer coming off red shirt year where he practiced and got a 4.0 GPA. I am looking forward to seeing him as well.
Larry's article on incoming Maine recruit Edward Lindelow as well as some quotes from Red on the other incoming Freshmen
I was going through potential lines for this year and I'm very excited for Maine's third and fourth lines. It will definitely be a big strength and after so many years of no depth(it was better last year) it will be nice for it to really be an advantage over other teams again. I'm not exactly sure what Maine will do with the top two, but in an ideal world I would move Pearson to the second line. He's a great player and we're incredibly lucky to have him, but I would rather see someone more offensive minded with Fossier and Tralmaks.
It will be interesting to see what happens with the d pairs. In my mind Holway, Michel, and Keeper are all deserving of being in the top two pairs but I hate seeing two righties together. Hopefully last year's freshmen take a step forward which would make a big difference.

Of the returning forwards Pearson and Smith are tied with 24 blocked shots.
He gets a knock at being mediocre for +/-, but his whole line is there with him and they played a lot of minutes against other teams defensive specialists.
The biggest knock on Pearson is his shot percentage is very low. But he was second in shots taken.
Overall, there is no doubt in my mind Pearson should be the top and first line centerman. He is the great all around centerman that helps win games.
In my opinion, he is responsible center that let's Fossier and Tralmaks get low. And he has helpers to show for it, he ranked second in that category.
Overall, I think Pearson has been a blessing for Maine. And if we had a line up chalk full of what he brings Maine wouldn't lose.
