Before turning pro Shields was a superstar at the University of Maine, scoring 127 points in three years. He led his team in scoring in his final season, and earned a selection to the All-American Team in 2004.
Colin was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 6th round of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft while playing for the Cleveland Barons of the North American Junior Hockey League.
