OXFORD, Ohio -- Former Miami University ice hockey standout Kevyn Adams (1992-96) became the second former member of the Red and White to win a National Hockey League championship when his Carolina Hurricanes won the 2006 Stanley Cup with a 3-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night. The win gave the Hurricanes a 4-3 series victory and secured the first Stanley Cup in franchise history.
Adams joins Dan Boyle (1994-98), who won the 2004 Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning, as the only two Miamians to hoist the most storied trophy in professional sports.
A four-year letterwinner at Miami, Adams ranks third on Miami's all-time scoring list with 172 points in 151 career games. Serving as an assistant captain for the Hurricanes, the native of Clarence, N.Y., tallied 23 points on 15 goals and eight assists during the regular season and was a key component of the team's penalty-killing unit.
