MILTON, Mass. --- T.J. Kelley became the 15th player in Colby College men's hockey history to reach 100 career points after dishing three assists to help the Mules to 4-2 non-conference win over Curry College on Tuesday night.

Kelley has 46 goals and 56 assists for 102 points in 76 career games at Colby. He leads the Mules this season in scoring with nine goals and 10 assists for 19 points.

Josh Reber, who also reached 100 career points earlier this season, added two goals and one assist for Colby (5-4).  Arthur Fritch finished with one goal and two assists and should be the next Mule to 100 points after reaching 95 for his career.
