Ray Jean (Own The Crease, Owner, Program Developer)
Playing as high the AHL Ray Jean learned at a very young age that if you want to be competitive as a goalie you need to be a student of the game. This is a philosophy that all of his instructors share and something we strive to pass on to our students. Ray played NCAA division one hockey for the University of Maine and Bentley University before playing throughout the CHL, ECHL, and AHL during his career.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - USA Hockey today unveiled a new Heads Up, Don’t Duck instructional video featuring Olympians Jenny Potter and Ryan Suter.
The Heads Up, Don’t Duck safety initiative dates back to 1996 and is aimed at reducing spinal cord and other debilitating injuries.
“Dr. Ashare, the current chair of our safety and protective committee, helped launch this important program nearly two decades ago,” said Dr. Michael Stuart, chief medical officer of USA Hockey. “The basic premise of the program has not changed, however, we created this updated video piece to ensure that every player and coach understands the importance of keeping your head up.”
“We’ve been out in front on safety issues over the course of our history,” said Dave Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey. “Heads Up, Don’t Duck has long been one of our signature safety programs and is part of our broad SafeSport program that addresses both on and off-ice safety of our participants.”
Blueline Sporting Goods in the Ingersoll Arena will be the exclusive vendor of Maine Gladiators Logo merchandise for 2012-2013. Many more Items to be available and a dedicated page here on our site coming soon.
