Chase Pearson’s coach praises U of Maine co-captain’s pluck

This morning,’s Arthur J. Regner examines the 2017-18 season of University of Maine Black Bears co-captain Chase Pearson.

Pearson had a superb sophomore season at Maine, posting 27 points (7 goals and 20 assists) in 37 games, and Pearson’s coach told Regner that Pearson overcame adversity along the way:

Quotable: “First off with Chase, you have to take into consideration he was co-captain as a sophomore and that’s not easily done at the college level. The fact that he assumed that level of formal leadership on the team as only a sophomore speaks volumes about his character. He is committed to be the best he can be. As far as his goal production is concerned, he was a little snakebitten at the start and in the first half of the season. He started to score goals in the second half, but over the course of the season if you don’t score a lot over the first 16 to 17 games, you don’t have a lot of time to get your numbers back. It wasn’t anything in his game, it’s just the way the game of hockey can be sometimes. His overall offensive production was improved, his face-off percentage improved, his defensive efficacy improved. Clearly, he is a prospect for the National Hockey League.” – Dennis “Red” Gendron, University of Maine head coach

  1. Pope, Pearson, Holway…three college kids that don’t get much attention. But I like them more than some of the guys in other leagues. I’ve already boldly predicted that Pope scores more goals in the NHL than Svech. Also think Pearson eventually makes it as a bottom 6 centre that can chip in some points. Glendening with hands.
