Maine’s Parker Dismissed From Hockey Team December 19, 2012 8:55 AM

Maine sophomore right wing John Parker has been dismissed from the Black Bears for what coach Tim Whitehead told the Bangor Daily News was “several alcohol-related infractions.”

“It’s a shame. We were really looking forward to having him on the team. He had the potential to be an impact player and was coming off a good freshman year,” said Whitehead.

“But this is the right thing to do. Hopefully, he can learn a lesson and get a clean start with another team,” said Whitehead. “He’s a great kid,.” he said of Parker, who had been named a Maine Scholar-Athlete Rising Star.

The Maine coach said Parker will finish out this semester and then join a junior team or look to transfer to another college

Parker had three goals and four assists in 33 games last season to lead the team’s rookies, and was a valuable penalty-killer because of his exceptional quickness, tenacity and grit.

Before coming to Maine, Parker captained the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the United States Junior Hockey League and had nine goals and 22 assists. He had previously won a national championship with the Indiana Ice of the USHL.

Let this be a warning to all of those players "living the dream" who think that boozing is just another part of the game. Every action has a cause and effect.
