2008-09: Martin Ouellette skated in sixteen games for Kimball Union Academy as a junior and had a 2.93 GAA with an .894 save percentage.
2009-10: As a senior at Kimball Union Academy in New Hampshire, Ouellette played 27 games with a 1.61 goals against average and .925 save percentage.
2010-11: Ouellette appeared in nine games as one of three goalies for Maine as a freshman. Fellow freshman Dan Sullivan saw the bulk of the action and in eight starts Ouellette was 3-3-2 with 1 shutout and finished the season with a 3.18 GAA and .862 save percentage. Maine finished fifth in Hockey East and was eliminated by Merrimack in back-to-back games in the conference quarterfinals.
2011-12: Ouellette is still stuck behind Dan Sullivan in Maine’s depth chart and didn’t see an increase in playing time. His goals against average rose to 3.42 as well as his minutes (dropped by 175 minutes). Maine lost to Boston College in the Hockey East Tournament semi final game and lost to defending champs, Minnesota Duluth, their final game of the tournament.
2012-13: Ouellette emerged as the starter for Maine in his junior season after early season struggles by fellow junior Dan Sullivan. Highlighted by back-to-back wins over defending national champion Boston College in January, when he stopped 68 of 70 shots, Ouellette provided solid goaltending as the Black Bears finished eighth in Hockey East – securing the last playoff spot. He appeared in 30 games and was 9-12-8 with 2 shutouts. He had a 2.42 goals against and .917 save percentage.
Ouellette took the bull by the horns in his first season as Maine’s starting netminder. He has tremendous poise and is constantly improving. He could develop into a good stay at home goalie, cutting down angles, and relying on his positioning to make saves.
Ouellette proved he could get the job done between the pipes during his junior season. After a loss in the quarterfinals, Ouellette will return to Maine for his senior year with the hopes of getting the Black Bears to the Frozen Four for the 12th time in program history.
