Pregame: Merrimack’s Rolls Same Lines Against Maine

ORONO, Maine — The Merrimack men’s hockey team is at history Alfond Arena tonight to take on the Maine Black Bears, with a puck drop scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

The Warriors will roll the same forward lines they did last weekend against Vermont. There’s one minor change on defense, where Liam Dennison enters the lineup as the seventh defenseman in place of Tyler Heidt.

Troy Kobryn (3.31/.884) will start in goal for the Warriors. Maine will likely counter with Boston Bruins draft pick Jeremy Swayman (2.30/.934).

Patrick Holway will be making his return to Alfond Arena tonight; Holway played two seasons at Maine from 2016-18 before transferring to the Warriors last season. Merrimack has six players averaging a point-per-game or better in the team’s last four games, including Tyler Irvine, Sami Tavernier, Chase Gresock and defenseman Zach Uens, Holway and Declan Carlile.

Over the last two weeks, Mitchell Fossier has been leading Maine’s offense, with nine points (2g-7a) in the last four games. Over the same span, Tim Doherty has eight points and Eduards Tralmaks has six points.

Jack Millea and Kevin Keenan are handling the officiating duties.
