Hockey Hall of Famer Paul Kariya, now a surfer, relished experience at UMaine

Paul Kariya has traded in his hockey stick for a surfboard, and Southern California has served him nicely following his retirement from the National Hockey League in 2011.

A series of concussions prematurely ended the NHL career of the former University of Maine Hobey Baker Award winner and All-American.

Even so, Kariya registered 989 points in 989 NHL games, which enabled him to become the first former Black Bear to be inducted into any pro sports hall of fame.

He will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Nov. 13 in Toronto.

Crosby School standout Thompson enters UMaine Hall of Fame
Thompson helped lead UMaine to 1964 College World Series

...ORONO — David Thompson was a standout athlete at Crosby High School in Belfast in the early 1960s, as he played football, basketball and baseball for the Lions.

However, his athletic prowess did not end in Waldo County as Thompson went on to become a mainstay on the baseball team for the University of Maine, helping lead the Black Bears to an improbable third-place finish at the 1964 College World Series.

Ultimately, his performance on the diamond as a Black Bear would go down in history. And now, Thompson is set to be honored for those efforts.
