Paul Kariya, Brian Gionta Among Top Five Forwards in Hockey East History


Hockey East has frequently featured some of the most talented college hockey players in the world since coming into existence in 1984, but a few players have stood above the rest.

One such player is Paul Kariya. Considered by many to be one of the finest college hockey players of all time, Kariya has gone on to enjoy a successful NHL career, but his playing days at the University of Maine from 1992-1994 will always be respected.

Brian Gionta is another player who rose to prominence in his college days before turning into an NHL standout with the Devils and Canadiens.

Both of those guys make Josh Ciocco's list of the top five forwards in Hockey East history. Check out the video above to see who else made the cut.
