He was the first freshman to win the Hobey Baker Award, notching 33 goals and 91 assists for 124 points in 51 games, helping the University of Maine to a 42–1–2 record, and the 1992–93 NCAA and Hockey East titles in his only full season. His younger brother, Steve, captained Maine to the 1998–99 NCAA title and later played briefly in the NHL. His younger sister, Noriko, is a professional boxer and his youngest brother, Martin, helped Maine get to the 2002 "Frozen Four" finals.

He was picked by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (now known as the Anaheim Ducks) fourth-overall in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. Kariya played for Anaheim for nine seasons.
