IBUH Episode 25; One Day to the Frozen Four

Episode 25 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Coach David Quinn, former Terrier captain and All-American John Danby and Tim Hennessy, Corbett’s counterpart as the voice of North Dakota hockey.

Danby was a standout scorer for three seasons racking up 160 points (79 G, 81A) and helping to lead BU to back-to-back NCAA titles in 1971 and 1972. A deadly shooter and co-scoring leader on the ‘71-‘72 squad, Danby scored hat tricks in two of three ECAC playoff games to earn MVP honors. After BU, he followed his Terrier coach, Jack Kelley, to the New England Whalers of the fledging WHA, scoring 37 points as the Whalers won the AVCO Cup as the league's champions. In the late 1970s he served as an assistant on Jack Parker’s staff for two seasons and was inducted into the BU Athletics Hall of Fame in 1988.
