Bleeding green: Dave Shellington is a UPEI Panther for life

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — Some people wear the UPEI Panthers' jersey and are rarely seen again. Others, like Dave Shellington, stay connected with the program forever.

The 54-year-old Burford, Ont., native stepped off a prop plane from Halifax on a foggy, rainy day in the summer of 1985 and his life changed dramatically. Inside the Charlottetown, airport was men's hockey head coach Vince Mulligan and upwards of 20 of Shellington's new teammates.

"I knew right then I was in the right place," he said Tuesday. "This is the place I wanted to be, and I never left."
