They said they haven’t posted as many wins as they would have liked.

But the five seniors on the University of Maine’s men’s hockey team have had a memorable experience in their time at the school and they all said it’s hard to believe it’s coming to an end.

Maine has gone 48-75-21 in their four seasons.

They will play the final regular season home games this weekend when they entertain Merrimack College on Friday and Saturday nights at Alfond Arena in Orono.

The seniors will be honored on Saturday night.

Maine is in 11th place, one point behind the Warriors, two points behind ninth-place Connecticut and three behind New Hampshire, which is eighth and occupies the final home ice slot for the first round of the best-of-three playoffs.

Captain Steven Swavely, a center, has played in 140 games for the Black Bears and has 32 goals and 45 assists. Defenseman Conor Riley has appeared in 139 games (4 & 17), left wing Will Merchant has played in 131 (19 & 15), winger-defenseman Billy Norman in 67 (3 & 11) and UMass transfer Andrew Tegeler in 38 (3 & 9).

“When you come here as a freshman, the seniors tell you to enjoy every moment of it because it goes by fast,” said Riley. “I kind of brushed it off. But four years later, you realize it has it has flown by.”

Swavely remembers their first meeting.

“We were standing in a circle up top at Alfond Arena,” he said. “Now it’s coming to an end. It’s sad but I’m more than grateful for everything [I’ve experienced] at the University of Maine.

“I’ll miss Alfond Arena. It’s the best place to play college hockey. I’m lucky I got to play here for four years. Not many get this opportunity.”

Norman said it has been a lot of fun and “I’ve learned a lot about being a hockey player and a person,” he said.

“I’ll always remember my friends and how close we have gotten on the teams. I’ll also remember the community,” he added.

“To play with the group of guys I’ve played with in each of the four years — I couldn’t ask for anything more,” said Merchant.

At the top of Swavely’s list of highlights was getting to play his first two seasons with his brother Jon and scoring in his first college game off an assist from his older sibling.

Tegeler is having his most productive season and said this year has been special.

“I’ve enjoyed this year more than any other year. Things have started to click for me. Things take a little longer [to click] for some of us,” said Tegeler, who has played in 26 games after playing in just 12 prior to the season.
