His father, Doug, special-ordered tiny skates, and the pair headed to Alfond for a public skate.
"They were this big," said Doug Damon, holding his thumb and index finger just inches apart."Single blade.No double runners.He'd put his hands in the back of my jeans and we'd go around and around."
Twenty-one years later, Doug Damon wears a leather Maine hockey bomber jacket and speaks in the comfortable way of a storyteller.His eyes twinkle, and he smiles at the funny parts of the story.
"He kind of grew up in here.He was literally a week old and we sat right over there," said Doug Damon, before pointing to Alfond's "T" section.
As Damon talks, dozens of passersby wave to him or stop to chat.
...
For the next several years, Doug Damon coached his son's travel teams.

Doug Damon, a retired Air Force pilot, began flying for the University of Maine on recruiting trips.
...
"Shawn Walsh used to tell him you're going to play at Maine one day," Doug Damon said.
...
The young Damon took it to heart.He was the leading scorer for almost all of his teams, including his two years at John Bapst, with his father as the school's coach.
Then he left for St. Dom's - the Catholic school with a reputation for churning out superior high school hockey teams.
...
After leading St. Dom's to the Class A state championship as a senior, Damon decided to play junior hockey in New Hampshire for the Exeter Snow Devils, with hopes of developing into a Division I prospect.
He had talent, but it still wasn't as obvious as that of current linemate Greg Moore, who was three years behind Damon at St. Dom's.
"Each step I took, someone was saying I couldn't play at that level," Damon said."I kind of like having people doubt me."
Damon honed his craft with the Snow Devils and worked on his skating.
He seriously thought about playing Division III hockey.But with Walsh's faith that he had the makings of a Division I player, he returned in 2001 to Alfond - the rink he'd known his whole life - as one of Walsh's recruited walk-on players.
"A lot of people doubted me.This kid from Bangor.How good could he be?"said Damon.
...
He'd say, 'Deker (Damon's nickname), you've got to work hard so you can come here,' " said Damon."It was my dream to play for Coach Walsh.I felt so upset.There were so many players he'd influenced who didn't get a chance to play for him."
Along with the rest of his team and his new coach, Tim Whitehead, Damon persevered.
...
Like almost every incoming college forward, Damon also had to learn to play the defensive side of the game.
Damon redshirted his first year at Maine and intensely worked on his game.
The next year, Damon started out as the fourth-line center.By Christmas, he had moved into a more prominent role, and he finished with nine goals and nine assists.Last season, he increased his totals to 13 goals and 18 assists.
...
Now in his junior season, Damon has become one of the team's elite players.His stick-handling ranks among the team's top two or three, and his scoring sense is perhaps the most natural of anyone on the team.
At the halfway mark of the season, Damon leads Maine in scoring with 10 goals and seven assists.He plays the point on the Black Bears' top power-play unit and is a vocal presence in the locker room and on the ice.
