DALLAS, Texas - Another tier II junior hockey team is coming to Maine. The North American Hockey League announced the addition of the Maine Nordiques.

The Nordiques will compete in the NAHL Eastern Division next season.

 

Home games will take place at the Colisee down in Lewiston.

 

The NAHL has churned out college hockey talent as a matter of fact five UMaine men's hockey players competed in the NAHL.

 

"An NAHL team in Maine continues to expand our mission of providing the best junior hockey that is available in the United States and more importantly, players will not have to move far from home to play in the NAHL. With the large number of NCAA teams and scouts in the region, along with NAHL events, it will be a nice addition to the great exposure we already get as a league and likely help us add to the record number of NCAA commitments,” NAHL commissioner and president Mark Frankenfeld said.
