Key Statistics: Moore's numbers have been consistent through his first three years in Orono, with 16 points as a freshman and 23 each of the past two years. Always more of a goal-scorer than an assist-man (38 goals, 24 assists in his career), he has 21 of his 38 career goals on the power play.

What He Does: Moore is a strong, solid two-way player who plays a tough defensive style that would be popular in Orono even if he wasn't a Lisbon, Maine, native. It was that part of his game that earned him spots on consecutive U.S. World Junior Championship teams, including the gold-medal squad in 2003-04.

The Bigger Picture: Moore has the skills to chip in more offensively, and should lead the way along with classmate and fellow Mainer Derek Damon (the Bangor native shared the team lead in goals with Moore at 14 last year). Goaltender Jimmy Howard's departure for the pros adds to the importance of getting additional offense from Moore, especially at even strength. Moore's size (6-foot-1, 208 pounds) makes him effective cycling the puck, which will help the Black Bears maintain possession and keep the pressure off Howard's replacements, sophomore Matt Lundin and freshman Ben Bishop.

New York Rangers head coach and vice president of player development Tom Renney on Moore, to the team's web site: “Greg is a powerful, powerful player. He will become, I think, a power forward in the National Hockey League. He has a very deceptive and quick release. He competes hard with his body. He’s hard on the forecheck and is a good, smart two-way player.”
