Ten years after The University of Maine's first NCAA National Hockey championship, the 19921993 UMaine hockey team is still regarded as one of college hockey's legendary teams. Coached by Shawn Walsh, the Black Bears compiled a 4212 record, unrivaled in the sport's modern era. Rookie sensation Paul Kariya led the team with a national record 100 points on his way to winning the Hobey Baker Award, given annually to college hockey's top player. Kariya, along with teammates Jim Montgomery and Cal Ingraham, made up the most prolific scoring line the sport has seen. The defense was led by All-American and future Olympian Chris Imes, while future Olympians and National Hockey League goaltenders Garth Snow and Mike Dunham formed the nation's top goaltending duo. The Black Bears' 54 come-from-behind win over Lake Superior State is still regarded as one of college hockey's classic championship games and is remembered across the state and beyond as the exclamation point on a most memorable season.

"Lasting Impression" features a memorable person or event in UMaine history.
