The 2015 U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Celebration, set for Thursday, Dec. 17, at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel, is sold out. This year’s inductee class includes Chris Drury, BU’s first Hobey Baker Award winner, a two-time first-team All-American and the Terriers’ all-time goal-scoring leader with 113. He also is the only player to win the NHL’s Calder Trophy as Rookie of the Year immediately after winning the Hobey. Drury’s 16 playoff points helped the Avalanche win the 2001 Stanley Cup.
Also at the event, former Terrier skater and assistant coach and longtime NHL scout Bob Crocker will be a recipient of the Lester Patrick Award for outstanding service to hockey in the U.S. Crocker served as Jack Kelley’s assistant coach and recruiter on Terrier teams that reached the Frozen Four four times and won national championships in 1971 and 1972. After stints as head coach at the University of Pennsylvania and as assistant general manager of the Hartford Whalers, he became an NHL scout, first for the Rangers and then with the Kings. The “Dean of New England Scouts” has three Stanley Cup rings to go with his BU championship rings.
