Along with brother-in-law Wes McCauley, long-time NHL official, Fenton reached the pinnacle of success in the hockey world; Fenton was an outstanding player for the University of Maine and McCauley is the NHL’s top-rated official.

Fenton, drafted by the New York Rangers in 1988, attended high school at NYA where he was All-State and a 4-year varsity letter player in 3 sports (hockey, soccer, and baseball).

At the University of Maine Fenton was a 4-year varsity player, and in 1993, the Black Bears, arguably the greatest college team in NCAA history, captured the NCAA Division I championship with an overall 42-1-2 record.

After graduation, Fenton played professional hockey from 1993-2001 and has the distinction of being the first player drafted by the Portland Pirates in their inaugural season.

Fenton is the general manager of 48forty Solutions and is also the Midwest scout for the Twin City Thunder of the United States Premier Hockey League. He has also coached in the high school ranks and plays an integral role with both WAHA and Team Wisconsin.
