Never forgotten

The names of former Terrier Mark Bavis (right) and his Los Angeles Kings colleague, Garnett “Ace” Bailey, a former Bruins forward, were among the first names recognized at today’s 9-11 Remembrance ceremonies in New York City. BU Associate Head Coach Mike Bavis (left) talked with BU Today about the horrific day ten years ago when he lost his twin brother.

College Hockey News looked back on the loss Bavis, Bailey and two members St. Lawrence’s 1988 national finalist team. CHN also posted a link to an exceptional 9-12-01 article by editor Adam Wodon about the events’ impact on the close knit college hockey and New England hockey communities including many of Mark’s BU and Catholic Memorial teammates.

One of the ironies of that tragic day was that Mark Krys, a BU defenseman and teammate of the Bavis brothers for two seasons, was working in the South Tower on 9-11, but was able to escape to safety before the tower fell.
