UMaine hockey captain Devin Shore will give up his senior year of college eligibility and will sign a pro contract with the team that drafted him back in 2012, the Dallas Stars.

Shore will likely report to their AHL team called the Texas Stars.

He leaves Orono having scored 104 points in 112 games.

Shore and the Black Bear had their season come to an end Sunday night with that overtime loss in Vermont. He had 14 goals and 21 assists in 39 games.

The Stars drafted Shore back in 2012 in the 2nd round, the 61st overall pick.

Now Maine hockey fans await word on defenseman Ben Hutton. He is a draftee of the Vancouver Canucks and he too could turn pro and give up his senior year.
