Patrick Kelly : Rockport fighter, a ‘man who knows no limits,’ wins MMA title at 52

When Patrick Kelly was winning a New England wrestling title at the University of Maine more than three decades ago, the aches and pains inherent in that achievement surely suggested that such combat endeavors weren’t going to become a lifetime sport like golf or tennis.

So even as Kelly continued to enter grappling tournaments 15 and 20 years later, much of his competitive side inevitably turned to a highly successful coaching career at his alma mater, Camden Hills Regional High School, where he has contributed to 15 state championship teams as a head coach or as an assistant.

He was inducted into the Maine Amateur Wrestling Alliance Hall of Fame in 2007, but try telling Kelly — or anyone he has sparred with in mixed martial arts — that his playing days are over.

UMaine Great Paul Kariya Selected in 2017 Hockey Hall of Fame Class
Maybe the greatest hockey player to wear the UMaine uniform is headed to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Paul Kariya is one of the 7 greats selected to join the Hall. He played 15 seasons in the NHL with Anaheim, Colorado, Nashville, and St. Louis. Kariya tallied 989 points in 989 career regular season games. He also had 39 points in 46 career playoff games, and if it weren’t for concussions, he would have had more. Paul was key in the 1993 UMaine national championship season. They went 42-1-2, the single greatest season in college hockey history. Kariya was the Hobey Baker award winner that year, with 100 points as a freshman.

He’s won world juniors, world’s, and also has three Olympic medals. One of them, Gold, in 2002

Paul Kariya to become UMaine’s first Hockey Hall of Famer

...UMaine coach Red Gendron, an assistant under the late Shawn Walsh that season, recalled that longtime Black Bears assistant Grant Standbrook was a big reason the Bears landed Kariya.

“He was extremely coachable,” said Gendron. “All Paul wanted to do was win and become a better player to help his team win. That was the way he operated.”

Gendron also noted that Kariya was a laid-back, team-first player who would do anything to put his team in position to get a victory.

Kariya set up Montgomery on the game-winning goal in the 1993 national championship win over Lake Superior State, completing a natural hat trick for Montgomery (three consecutive goals in a game).

Former UMaine hockey captain Flynn signs with Dallas Stars

DALLAS, Texas - The NHL continues its offseason, and a former Black Bear has found a home for the coming year.

The Dallas Stars announced Saturday that the team had signed forward Brian Flynn to a one-year contract.

Flynn played for UMaine, and was a captain in his senior season before going pro in 2012. He played all but one game during his four years in Orono, only missing the second game in his freshman season. Flynn netted 69 goals and ended his career with the Black Bears with the 11th-most total points in program history.
