College Hockey:
Concussions Bring Career to Close for Maine’s Solomon

The sixth concussion of his hockey career was enough for Maine’s Kyle Solomon.

Solomon is retiring from hockey after suffering a concussion late in the season, he told the Bangor Daily News.

In 42 games for the Black Bears over two seasons, Solomon had one goal and six points.

He was known for his physical play, which factored into his decision.

“I play physical,” he told the newspaper. “You can never predict what the next concussion would do.”
