The Northeastern Huskies men's ice hockey team is a NCAA Division I college ice hockey program that represents Northeastern University. The Huskies are a member of Hockey East. They play at the 4,666-seat Matthews Arena in Boston, Massachusetts.[2]

History[edit]

The men's ice hockey program has existed since 1929 and played as an independent NCAA Division I team until joining the ECAC in 1961. Northeastern is a founding member of the Hockey East athletic conference, which the team joined in 1984. The Huskies had their most success in the 1980s, when the team won the prestigious Beanpot tournament four times (the only times Northeastern has captured the Beanpot) and was the runner-up twice. Its best season came in 1982, when the Huskies finished 25–9–2 and made it to the NCAA Frozen Four. They also won the Hockey East championship in 1988 and 2016, and made appearances in the NCAA hockey tournament in 1988, 1994, 2009, and 2016.

Brad Thiessen was named to the Hockey East All-Rookie team in 2007.

Northeastern players who have gone on to significant professional hockey careers have included David Poile '71, long time general manager of the NHL Washington Capitals and current general manager of the NHL Nashville Predators, St. Louis Blues goaltender and two-time All-American Bruce Racine '88, NHL defenseman Dan McGillis, Montreal Canadiens winger Chris Nilan, and Chicago Blackhawks defenseman and Hobey Baker Award finalist Jim Fahey '02.

Other than those who have achieved success in the professional ranks, some of the more notable individual players in team history include Art Chisholm and Ray Picard, each two-time All-Americans; and Sandy Beadle and Jason Guerriero, each a one-time All-American who was also a Hobey Baker Award finalist. Chisholm is the leading career goal scorer for the Huskies with 100, while Jim Martel is the career scoring leader with 210 points. The most notable goaltenders in team history are Racine and Keni Gibson, who between them hold most school career records. Brad Thiessen, who turned professional after his junior year (2009), broke Gibson's school record with eight career shutouts by his sophomore season and had been threatening several career goaltending records.
