Welcome reader, this is the introductory post to what is the UMaine Hockey Beat. This blog will be dedicated to coverage of the UMaine Black Bear’s men’s ice hockey team. There will be post on a semi-weekly basis, unless something breaking happens then it will be more frequently. Although the team is currently in the offseason, there’s lots to talk about as the Black Bears had quite an offseason. Things like a new head coach, player departures/arrivals, the release of the schedule, and other various events that happened at UMaine. But when the Black Bears kickoff there season, October 6th at the Alfond, I’ll be having posts dedicated to the latest of this team. The first post will be a recap of the weekend’s action, the second post focusing more on a preview of the upcoming matchups. If anyone has anything to add or comment on about UMaine Hockey either comment on the post, tweet at me with the twitter handle @aquirko or email me which you can find in the about section. Hope you enjoyed reading this, and GO BLUE!!!
