College Hockey:
UNH’s Caron Granted Release from Program

— New Hampshire freshman forward Ed Caron has requested, and has been granted, his release from the University and the hockey program at semester’s end.



According to a New Hampshire television station, Caron is planning to transfer to another Division I school. Attempts to reach Caron on Tuesday evening were unsuccessful.

A native son, Caron was a fan favorite while playing in 34 of UNH’s 40 games and recording six goals and seven assists for 13 points. He also provided a major physical presence, delivering punishing hits with his 6-foot-3-inch, 220-pound frame. He registered 20 penalties for 51 minutes.

“Ed has been an outstanding student-athlete at UNH, both in the classroom and on the ice. We wish him continued success in the future,” said UNH coach Dick Umile.

Caron was selected by the Edmonton Oilers with the 52nd pick in the 2001 NHL Draft.
