ORONO - Former University of Maine star Paul Kariya has played in four NHL All-Star games, he is a two-time winner of the Lady Byng Trophy awarded to the player who exhibits the best sportsmanship and he has played in the Winter Olympics.
Kariya had 25 goals and 75 assists in 39 games to become the first and only freshman to win the Hobey Baker Award (given to college hockey's top player) in 1992-93. He then notched eight goals and 16 assists in 12 games his sophomore year before leaving to join the Canadian Olympic team.
Paul Kariya is looking forward to the upcoming season, especially now that the Ducks have obtained former Black Bear defenseman Keith Carney in a trade with the Phoenix Coyotes.
