December is one of the busiest months in the academic year and for students it’s filled with final assignments, exams, and presentations. Eating properly, sleeping, and taking care of one’s physical and mental health become secondary as a student’s time is consumed with studying and the need to meet deadlines. December 2016 saw a host of activities, that were employee-led-and-initiated, geared towards supporting UPEI students.

The University of Prince Edward Island announced today that four hockey icons, Jack Kane Sr., his son Jack Kane Jr., Billy MacMillan, and Vince Mulligan, will be inducted into the UPEI Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday, February 9, 2017.

Jack Kane Sr., who will be inducted posthumously, was revered as a head coach in the forties and fifties for UPEI’s founding institution, Saint Dunstan’s University. The younger inductees started playing with the Saint Dunstan Saints and then each went on to coach after their playing careers. Jack Kane Jr. coached the Saints from 1965-69, and counted Mulligan and MacMillan on his roster, while Mulligan and MacMillan also both coached, but by then, they led the UPEI Panthers.
