After two years as a goalie at U. Maine, goaltender Shawn Sirman was "let go" by the hockey program and has returned to Ontario to attend Queen's University (which isn't a bad thing considering its a top academic institution).

6:26 Why do you make up bullshit? Maine released 2 players in the spring cause they wanted to make room for better players end of story.

The NCAA is as much a business as the OHL. Time for you to wake up and face reality.

Sophomore Shawn Sirman (4-2-3, 2.77 goals-against average, .894 save percentage)

"There are a number of reasons Maine probably won’t be going to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth straight year: blown leads late in games, inability to expand leads, defensive breakdowns, and special teams issues.

But the most pronounced problem was goaltending."


ITS NO WONDER!! HE SUCKED AT GOALTENDING, LUCKY TO BE GIVEN A SCOLLY FOR A YEAR!!

DIDN"T DESERVE IT

The kid was really playing poorly and was given a lot of chances. If he were in the OHL with that type of game he would've last 2-3 games since no team can afford to tank while someone is trying to get their game back. Goalies hold most important position on the team and it's the most volatile position to boot. Don't envy goaltenders and family with that type of pressure.

I understand that he was at Maine for two years. Good for him to have his education paid for during that time. Good Luck to him at Queens. If he had been in the OHL he would NOT have made a team and hence no education package.

Maine was great in giving him the education while he was there.

definitely a pressure filled position, however I'm surprised he isn't being given a back-up position.

a wake-up call for many I'm sure that hockey is a "business" no matter which route you take.

Well one thing for sure you can hide players much more easily than you can a goalie. That was probably the deciding factor although majority of D1 schools would've honoured the school package at the least but I'm assuming the family wanted a starting position first and schooling to go with it. Wish the family luck cause goalies have the thankless job many times.
