Maineiacs’ Notebook — 10/10/09

Last night Don MacAdam wasn’t pleased with the way the defense played in front of the goalies. Adrien Lemay will get his tenth straight start tonight. It doesn’t mean Jordan Kennedy will play on Sunday.

“No idea,” Don MacAdam. “We will see how things go.”

Samuel Finn who won’t play this week didn’t go with the team on the trip to Atlantic Canada.

Krill Kabanov will play for Moncton

The Moncton Wildcats received word on Friday that their first round import selection, Krill Kabanov, will be allowed to play for Moncton. If you are unfamiliar with the situation, the KHL said he was under contract with a KHL club. Kabanov said he wasn’t. The International Ice Hockey Federation sided with Kabanov.

The 17-year old forward is a potential top five selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The Wildcats used the seventh overall selection in the Import Draft, which was originally held by the Lewiston Maineiacs.

Samuel Carrier profiled on

Speaking of the upcoming NHL Draft, Maineiacs’ defenseman Samuel Carrier was recently profiled on as top prospect in the QMJHL.

“He really thinks the game well, has a good hockey head,” NHL Central Scouting’s Chris Bordeleau told “He knows what he’s doing out there, he can handle the puck. He’s going to be a pretty good player.”

Carrier is one of three played that will eligible for the NHL Draft for the first time next summer. The other two are Michael Chaput and Stefan Fournier.
