ORONO – It’s been a power surge of late for Maine men’s hockey with contributions coming from some unlikely sources.
The Black Bears are 6-0-1 in their last seven games and are averaging 4.5 goals per game during that span.
A lot of that production has come from defenseman Patrick Holway who has nine points in his last five games.
In the absence of Rob Michel on the blue line Holway has picked up the slack in a big way and is enjoying the best offensive spurt of his career.
Despite the sudden outburst, Holway says he hasn’t changed anything and is sticking to the basics.
“I’ve really just been trying to keep things simple, not over complicate my play. So you know my team’s been doing a great job around me, we’ve just been playing well,” Holway said.
