Zack Sill, Truro Bearcats, UMaine 2006-07

Centre shoots right, just under 6'. Saw him a couple of times, but I'm not a good one to rate individual talent. Is this a good move for him, will he be a regular with the Black Bears?

Watched him play 2 years in Midget and 1 in JR A. Hes a good player, gritty kid, works hard.

He was drafted by Moncton but didnt report.

He will not be a factor in his time in Maine.

Well he looked pretty good in his first game Saturday night. He had a goal a couple shots on net and was +1 and didn't look out of place on the ice at all.

Wow that was a bump on a thread 4 months later.
Please keep those of us informed on Zach's progress, who aren't lucky enough to see him live, anymore.

Yeah this thread is a little dated I'll keep you updated on his progress although I expect he'll be in and out of the lineup. Maine is a veteran team this year and it looks like the only Freshman who will be in the lineup every night will be Ted Purcell with a few others like Sill rotating in and out.

Do you know anything about a kid named Andrew Sweetland who plays for Amherst in the MJAHL? He just commited to Maine for next year and looks to have good numbers 21 points in 10 games,but he is an older kid so the numbers could be misleading.

Sweetland 6' 2" 198 lb, left winger and '86 born from St. John's Nfld. Other than that? But I'll see him a few times as Amherst is only 30 minutes from here and games at the "Jungle" in Amherst are special. We never know who fights more the players or the fans

Any rink nicknamed the "Jungle" must be an interesting place to visit.

Andrew Sweetland is the best player the MJAHL has seen in a long time. Had a seven point night on Saturday (4 goals, 3 assists) and while I wasn't there, I heard from many that he undressed everyone a couple of times. Apparently he was playing D on the powerplay when the other team got a 2 on 1 against him...he picked off a pass and went end to end to score.

He looks primed for a very bright future. I think he now has 46 points in 18 games, with the next closest player in scoring has 43 points in 29 games.

Yeah, Zach has signed on with the East Hants Penguins of the NS JR "B" League and has signed an affiliate card with the Truro Bearcats of the Maritime JR "A" League. He's already played with the Bearcats.
Not to spread rumours..but I will...
His dismisal from Maine is said to have something to do with what you can do legally in the Maritimes at age 19 but not in Maine untill 21.
Not the first Atlantic kid to fall prey to that!

It was more than just drinking. Sill and Czuba both left after they were suspended for the incident and Czuba is 21 so he would have been legal and wouldn't have been kicked out for drinking.

yeah, andrew sweetland is the best player to come to the mjahl in a long time. he ended up with league mvp, most points, and first team all star. he has incredible vision on the ice. he almost always ends up with the puck. he is big, strong, hard shot. he plays the point on the power play. he reminds me of the sidney crosby of the mjahl! and to top it all, he is lucky! he won the 50-50 last night at the local junior B game, during the don johnson cup! so, he should shine next year!

Zach Sill was named MJAHL playoff MVP. His Truro Bearcats won the MJAHL championship. He tried NCAA maybe now he'll report to the Wildcats. He looks to me like a Christian Gaudet type player. Leadership skills to be aquired

For all of the Maine Blackbear fans quite sure you will enjoy watching Sweetland play there next year. He's one hell of a hockey player has great hands and a real good hockey sense. Pretty good student too from what I'm told. If it weren't such a long drive I would alomst consider a road trip to watch him

I live in the Jungle Called Amherst and we have the best fans in all the mjahl. We do love our hockey and our players. Sometime we get alittle crazy and wild. But that is what the players expect playing in the jungle and they wouldn't have it any other way!!!

He also gets a chance to play for florida maybe. He was one of the best players to come out of Amherst and the MJAHL. We loved him and wish him the best of luck in the future. He broke the rams record too!!!
