Who comes to mind when you are asked to name an individual who has made a lasting effect on ice hockey in or from Massachusetts?
Nominate him or her for the 2018 Massachusetts Hockey Hall of Fame. Nominations will be accepted until December 31, 2017.
Inductees are chosen on the basis of accomplishments in the game of hockey, sportsmanship, character and contributions to his or her teams and programs.
The Massachusetts Hockey Hall of Fame is proud to honor some of our most talented and most dedicated contributors to the sport.
The list is full of Olympic and Paralympic heroes, college and NHL stars, female pioneers, high school and college coaches, referees and media icons, as well as dedicated, behind-the-scenes grassroots builders who have spent time furthering the development of hockey in Massachusetts.
This past June Massachusetts Hockey hosted the 2017 Hall of Fame and Annual Awards evening. Our master of ceremonies was former NHL player and Boston Bruins PJ Stock. The inductees included Hockey East Commissioner Joe Bertagna (All-Around), retired professional and Olympic hockey player Paul Hurley (Player), retired professional and Olympic hockey player Shawn McEachern (Player), one of the founding members of Massachusetts Hockey Bernie Michals (Builder) and professional hockey coach Paul Vincent (Coach).
