Maine adds a goalie for next season

Orono, ME– Maine continues to pick up recruits for the 2009-2010 season. Monday they added Kingston Voyageurs (OJHL) goaltender Shawn Sirman. The soon to be 19-year-old made 48 saves in the 5-4 overtime victory in Game One of the OJHL Finals against the defending champion Oakville Blades on Saturday.

“Shawn was terrific for us tonight (Saturday),” said Head Coach Evan Robinson in the team’s press release. “He was the best player on the ice tonight and we’re gonna need him to continue that, because teams are so evenly matched at this stage in the game,” said Robinson.

In game two on Sunday he turned aside 29 shots in the 4-3 victory.

In the playoffs, he has a 17-4 record, a 2.25 goals-against-average, and a .932 save percentage. During the regular season, he was 21-5 with a 2:36 goals against average and a .926 save percentage. He has recorded three shutouts in the regular season and the playoffs.

He join fellow OJHL players Joey Diamond who plays for the Hamilton Red Wings and Carlos Amestoy of the Toronto Jr. Canadiens to commit to Maine. Diamond had 76 points on the regular season including 42 goals in 45 games. He also had 213 penalty minutes on the year. In two playoff games, he had one goal.

Amestoy had a great end to the season. He had 25 points including 10 goals in 43 games during the season. In the playoffs he had seven goals and three assists in 15 playoff games.
