Maxim, a junior from Annapolis, Md., scored a career-high two goals to propel the UNH men’s ice hockey team to a 6-2 victory against Colorado College in last Saturday’s home opener at the Whittemore Center. The two points matched his personal best.
The forward gave the Wildcats a 1-0 lead with a shorthanded goal at 16:57 of the first period and Maxim extended the advantage two goals at 5:06 of the second stanza. He finished the game with five shots and a plus/minus rating of +2; he also won 8 of 14 faceoffs.
Through four games, Maxim is tied for the team lead in goals with two. In other stats, he is third in shots (13).
Maxim has played in 70 career games with seven goals and seven assists for 14 points. He tallied four points (2g, 2a) in 36 games last year following a freshman campaign in which he had eight points (3g, 5a) in 30 games; he established career highs in both assists (two) and points (two) that year against Providence College. Maxim was named to the Hockey East All-Academic Team each of his first two years as a Wildcat.
