UMaine Hockey: looking ahead to 2018-19

UMaine men’s hockey team should continue upward trend next season

...This team was better in all areas than any of fifth-year head coach Red Gendron’s first four teams.

And, depending upon early departures, the nucleus is in place to make a run for the top four in Hockey East next season and the first NCAA tournament berth since the 2012 season. That was also the last time UMaine reached the Hockey East semifinals.

It is important to point out that only two of UMaine’s 18 wins (18-16-4, 10-11-3 in Hockey East) came over teams that finished .500 or better. Those nine teams went a combined 115-184-34. Only Boston University (19-13-4) finished above .500.

The Black Bears were the only team among the bottom eight seeds in the league that didn’t earn at least a tie against one of the top three seeds: Boston College, Northeastern and Providence College. ... xt-season/
