Defenseman Patrick Holway leaves Maine program


Maine junior defenseman Patrick Holway has left the program to attend to a personal matter. The program announced Holway’s departure in a press release on Sunday, and The Bangor Daily News was able to reach Holway later in the day.

“I need to get back closer to home. It’s a personal matter and that’s all I can say about it,” Holway told the paper. “We’ll see how things work out. It wasn’t an easy decision.”

Holway, who was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2015 NHL Draft, had 19 points (6 goals, 13 assists) in 33 games last season on the Black Bear blue line.

“We want to thank Pat for his contributions to our program. We wish him great success in the future,” UMaine head coach Red Gendron said in a press release.

Maine hosts Prince Edward Island on Monday night (6 p.m.) in an exhibition game at Alfond Arena.
