Michel Leveille


Michel has been a Dean’s List student in eight of the nine semesters at Maine so far, with a 3.20 cumulative GPA. He is majoring in communications, with a double minor in public relations and business administration. He will graduate in May 2007. Was named a Maine Scholar-Athlete gold medalist and was Named to the Hockey East Academic Honor Roll three times from 2004 through 2006.


Having to sit out as a freshman was a big challenge for Michel. He was unable to practice with the team, and not being able to receive a scholarship was a financial hardship. He stuck through the year and has been a leader of the team ever since. He had several opportunities to leave Maine and play professional hockey, however decided to return for his final season. Michel’s father passed away when he was 3 years old; it was always his father’s dream that his son play hockey. This is a dream that his mother has worked hard at to come true. As a result, Michel is a very grounded and compassionate person, who takes advantage of every opportunity given to him.


Speaks to numerous elementary and middle schools throughout the year. Is involved in several youth hockey clinics during the year. In addition, if there are ever kids hanging around the rink watching practice, he always makes a point to go over and give them a puck and say hello.
