Colby names position for legendary hockey coach Kelley

OCT. 29, WATERVILLE, MAINE — Colby College announced Thursday the naming of the Jack Kelley Head Coach for Colby Men’s Hockey in honor of the legendary coach who turned Colby men’s hockey into a New England powerhouse in the 1950s and made a profound impact on the lives of hundreds of players. The endowment will total $2 million and was made possible through gifts from alumni, parents, and friends of the College.

Colby will celebrate the naming at men’s hockey’s opening home game of the season vs. Bowdoin on Dec. 4. The game is free and open to the public.

A captain of Kelley’s team in 1976-77, Jack O’Neil ’77, initiated this naming opportunity and was critical to its success, both through his own philanthropy and through inspiring others to contribute. “Jack O’Neil is emblematic of all the great hockey players who benefited from Jack Kelley’s coaching and teaching,” said Colby President David A. Greene. “The lessons he learned from Coach Kelley have informed his approach to life and work. And his desire to honor a great Colby legend is as much about past success as it is about our commitment to future excellence.”

For O’Neil, Kelley was much more than a coach. “He drove us to elevate our game, both personally and as athletes,” O’Neil said. “He got more out of me than I ever thought existed. I have enjoyed watching how the current head coach, Blaise MacDonald, is inspiring his players, and it seems perfectly fitting that he be the first Jack Kelley Head Coach.”

A member of the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame, Kelley coached men’s hockey from 1955 to 1962, during which time the team posted a record of 89-51-5. With a 16-1 record, the Mules dominated the Colby-Bowdoin rivalry during that time. In 1962 Colby’s 17-1 record put it in the lead in ECAC standings. Kelley left for Boston University, his alma mater, after the 1961-62 season. He returned to Colby to coach for the 1976-77 season, and Colby’s young team went on to beat Division I Northeastern for Kelley’s 300th career victory.

“What Coach Kelley did with men’s hockey will reign as one of the greatest coaching accomplishments in Colby’s history, and his impact on the lives of his students is even more impressive than his record,” said Harold Alfond Director of Athletics Timothy Wheaton. “We look forward to celebrating and seeing Coach Kelley back in the Alfond Rink in December.”

Added Vice President for College and Student Advancement Dan Lugo: “In addition to honoring Kelley, this gift honors Colby’s proud hockey history while contributing to the exciting future of Colby men’s hockey and Colby athletics more broadly. The donors who came together to fund this position embody the values of teamwork imparted by Jack Kelley to his players.” The gifts make Colby’s endowed position the only one of its kind in NESCAC hockey.

At BU Kelley won national titles in 1971 and 1972. He formed the New England Whalers in the new World Hockey Association, went on to work in the Detroit Red Wings organization, and later became president of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Colby’s long history of intercollegiate hockey began at the same time Kelley arrived to coach, in 1955, with the opening of the Alfond Rink — the result of a generous gift by the late Harold Alfond. The rink also allowed Colby to host the first-ever women’s intercollegiate match, against Pembroke (Brown University).

Founded in 1813, Colby is one of America’s most selective colleges and the first previously all-male college in New England to admit women. Serving only undergraduates, Colby offers a rigorous academic program rooted in deep exploration of ideas and close interaction with world-class faculty scholars. Students pursue intellectual passions, choosing among 57 majors or developing their own. Independent and collaborative research, study abroad, and internships offer robust opportunities to prepare students for postgraduate success. Colby is home to a community of 1,850 dedicated and diverse students from around the globe. Its Maine location provides easy access to world-class research institutions and meaningful civic engagement experiences.

Men’s hockey aims for turnaround season

WATERVILLE, Maine — With 10 of the top 11 scorers returning from a year ago, the Colby College men’s hockey team is hopeful for a turnaround 2015-16 season.

The Mules, who went 5-16-3 overall last year, open the season Saturday at 7 p.m. at Middlebury College. Colby also plays Sunday at 3 p.m. at Williams College.
“It is shaping up to be another year of growth and development for our program,” Colby head coach Blaise MacDonald said. “It is the first time since I have been here where we have a big core of returning players, including eight returning on defense.”
Colby’s veteran defense will be important in front of a sophomore and two first-year goalies. Junior co-captain Geoff Sullivan (Topsfield, Mass.) was sixth on the team in scoring a year ago with 10 assists. Senior Chris Kennedy (Sherborn, Mass.) had eight points on two goals and six assists, sophomore Michael Decker (Algonquin, Ill.) added one goal and six assists, and junior Jack Burton (Baltimore, Md.) finished with two goals and four assists.
Alex Walsh (Basking Ridge, N.J.), Dan Dupont (Wallingford, Conn.), Andrew Reis (Burlington, Ontario), and Kai Frankville (La Jolla, Calif.) also return on defense. First-year Thomas Stahlhuth (St. Louis, Mo.) also will be in the mix on the blue line.
Colby’s experience on the ice has given MacDonald and his staff a chance to coach differently than in the past.
“Our tempo pace and execution in practice in the preseason has been excellent. We have a focused group that works very well together,” MacDonald said. “Each and every day there will be great competition in practice which will help us all become our very best. This year we are working on doing things different and better than we have ever done them before.”
Goaltending and goal scoring will be two keys to a successful season for the Mules.
Sophomore goalie Emerson Verrier (Whitby, Ontario) played about 24 percent of the minutes last year and saw most of his time early in the season. First-year keepers Mac Burton (Columbus, Ohio) and Robbie DeAngelo (Boston, Mass.) will vie for minutes.
“Emerson came back to campus in great shape and focused on having a great year,” MacDonald said.
Colby junior co-captain EJ Rauseo (Methuen, Mass.) was tied for the team lead in scoring last year with 11 goals and 13 assists for 24 points. Junior forward Devin Albert (Reading, Mass.) also had 24 points with 12 goals and 12 assists.
Sophomores Mario Benicky (Liptovsky Mikulas, Slovakia) and Cam MacDonald (Westford, Mass.) both had solid first seasons with the Mules. Benicky was third in scoring with eight goals and 11 assists for 19 points, while MacDonald had six goals and nine assists for 15 points.
Michael Rudolf (Zug, Switzerland), Colin Reilly (Pelham, N.Y.), Phil Klitirinos (Dollard-Des-Ormeaux, Quebec), Jonathan Sdao (Boulder, Colo.), Kevin Doherty (Wakefield, Mass.), Tyler Lingel (South Glens Falls, N.Y.), Scott Fenwick (Quispamsis, N.B.), and Griffin Fadden (Concord, Mass.) also return on the forward line.
Colby first-years Zack Hale (Minneapolis, Minn.), Nick O’Connor (Canton, Mass.), and John Rourke (Wellesley, Mass.) are expected to contribute offensively.
“I do believe our offense will come from a large group,” MacDonald said. “Our first years look very good and have added skill and talent to our team.”

Men’s hockey drops opener to Panthers

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. — Emerson Verrier stopped 35 shots for the Colby College men’s hockey team in a 4-0 loss at Middlebury College in the season opener for both teams Saturday night at Kenyon Arena.

Colby (0-1 overall) will play at Williams College on Sunday at 3 p.m. in another NESCAC contest.

Middlebury took a 1-0 lead 14:41 into the first period when Evan Neugold won a face-off back to Terrence Goguen at the top of the right circle. His quick wrist shot found that back of the net for the 1-0 advantage.

Colby’s best chance to score in the second period came midway through when Kai Frankville sent a hard shot toward goal. The puck hit Middlebury’s Andrew Neary, popped up in the air, and appeared to be headed into the back of the net before Neary cleared it away.

The Panthers took a 2-0 lead 11:21 into the second session with a shorthanded goal. Colby had a miscue in their own end and Vincent Gisonti quickly snatched it up and scored on a wrap around. The Mules had plenty of chances in the period, holding a 14-11 shots advantage in the 20-minute session.

Max Greenwald looked to put the Panthers up 3-0 early in the third, but the puck was poke-checked away by Verrier. Jake Charles found the back of the net 3:43 into the final period, taking a feed from Neugold. The Panthers struck again at 16:08 when Spencer Cage’s shot, after a feed from Neugold, was partially saved by Verrier before crossing the goal line. The assist was Neugold’s third of the night.

Stephen Klein earned the shutout for the Panthers. He made two nice stops on co-captain EJ Rauseo in the opening period.

Men’s hockey earns tie with No. 9 UMass-Boston

WATERVILLE, Maine — Colby College goaltender Emerson Verrier (Cornwall, Ontario) stopped a penalty shot with two seconds left in overtime to help the Mules hold on for a 1-1 tie with ninth-ranked University of Massachusetts at Boston on Saturday at Alfond Rink as part of the Bowdoin/Colby Classic.

Play continues in the tourney Sunday at Bowdoin College. The Mules (0-2-1 overall) will take on Endicott College at 1 p.m., while UMass-Boston (6-0-1) meets Bowdoin at 4 p.m. In the other game Saturday at Alfond Rink, Endicott took a 6-3 win over the Polar Bears.
The end of regulation and overtime were wild affairs. The Beacons went on the power play with just 1:28 left in regulation after a Colby holding penalty. UMass-Boston had a few nice scoring chances, but the Mules survived to force the extra period.
The final 30 seconds of overtime saw its share of twists and turns. Colby put on massive pressure for about 20 seconds, but no one was at the blue line as they tried to get the game winner. The puck scooted out to the Beacons’ Derek Colucci (North Scituate, R.I.), who was stopped by Verrier on the breakaway. Colby, however, was called for a delay of game penalty and UMass was awarded a penalty shot when one of the Mules’ defenders slammed into the goal and knocked the cage loose with just two seconds to play.
Colucci took the penalty shot and came across the goal to his forehand only to be stuffed by Verrier, who got his right pad down to make the save.
After a scoreless first period, the Mules scored their first of the season at 2:37 of the second period. Geoff Sullivan (Topsfield, Mass.) had a nice feed to Jonathan Sdao (Niwot, Colo.) at the UMass-Boston blue line. Sdao kept his head up and saw Griffin Fadden (Concord, Mass.) coming up the middle of the ice. Sdao pushed a pass across to Fadden, who ripped in his first collegiate goal.
The Beacons nearly tied the game at 4:30 of the second period when Colin Larkin (Waterford, Mich.) hit the goal post on a blast.
UMass-Boston settled for the tying goal at 7:30 of the second when Colucci found Garrison Sanipass (Northbrook, Ill.) on the right side going toward the goal. Sanipass had his first shot saved by Verrier, but he got the puck back and lifted a high shot past Verrier from in close.
Verrier stopped 31 shots and has allowed just two goals in his last two games, both against nationally-ranked opponents. UMass-Boston goalie Billy Faust (Alta Loma, Calif.) also was strong with 27 stops.

Men’s hockey settles for split with Bowdoin

BRUNSWICK, Maine — The Colby College men’s hockey team had to settle for a split of the season series with rival Bowdoin College after falling 4-2 to the Polar Bears at Sid Watson Arena on Saturday night.

The Mules, who won 3-0 over Bowdoin at home on Friday, drop to 2-3-1 overall and 1-3 in the New England Small College Athletic Conference. Bowdoin improved to 2-4-1 and 1-2-1 in the league.
Colby battled back twice to tie the game and was in the contest until the Polar Bears had an empty net goal with just 40 seconds to play.
The Polar, after getting blanked Friday, got on the board somewhat early when Sebastian Foster scored from Cody Tedesco and Austin Ricci at 3:48 of the opening period.
The Mules tied the game at 10:12 of the first on a power play goal by Michael Decker from fellow defensemen Jack Burton.
Unfortunately for the Mules, Bowdoin struck just 18 seconds later at 10:30 on Cody Todesco’s goal from Foster and Ricci.
After a scoreless second period, Colby tied the game at 2-2 when Devin Albert fell to his knee after getting spun around and still managed to rip a shot for the score. Cam MacDonald had the assist on the play.
Bowdoin received the game-winning goal from Spencer Antunez on an unassisted score at 3:41 of the third period. Todesco scored his second of the night from Foster on the empty net.
Emerson Verrier had 27 saves for the Mules and Peter Cronin stopped 20 for Bowdoin.
Colby did kill off three Bowdoin penalties and still has not allowed a power play goal. The opponent is 0-for-18 with the extra man in six games.

Men’s hockey holds off Conn College, 3-2

WATERVILLE, Maine — First-year Nick O’Connor scored his team-best third goal of the season and Mario Benicky added a goal and an assist for the Colby College men’s hockey team in a 3-2 victory over Connecticut College on Friday night at Alfond Rink.

The Mules move to 3-3-1 overall and 2-3 in the New England Small College Athletic Conference. Colby will play host to Tufts University in another league game Saturday at 3 p.m. The Camels drop to 1-5-2 overall and 0-3-2 in the league heading into Saturday’s 4 p.m. game at Bowdoin College.
Colby, now 2-0-1 in home games, had leads of 2-0 and 3-1 only to have the Camels cut the margin to one goal.
After a scoreless first period, Colby’s Michael Rudlof scored his second of the season from Mario Benicky on a two-on-one that developed at center ice. Benicky took the puck on the left side, was patient with the puck, and then slid a pass over to Rudlof for a one-timer with 5:49 left in the second period.
Colby picked up its third power play opportunity with 4:19 left in the second and capitalized 1:01 later. O’Connor’s first shot on goal was saved, but he continued toward the net to gather the rebound and fired it in for a 2-0 lead. Geoff Sullivan and EJ Rauseo had assists on the play.
The Mules had two penalties to give the Camels a 5-on-3 advantage. Colby was able to escape to the third period with the 2-0 lead. Connecticut College, though, scored its first power play of the season just 36 seconds into the final period. Senior forward Joe Birmingham had the puck on the left side and inched toward the goal. With Colby unable to bring an attacker toward him, Birmingham elected to shoot and blasted a shot in to cut the margin to 2-1. Tim DiPretoro had the assist on the goal.
Colby went up 3-1 on a nice hustle to the puck by Michael Decker and then a perfect cross to Benicky for the score. Decker was able to get to the puck on the left board, turned quickly, and then ripped a pass across to Benicky for the tip-in on the far post with 12:27 to go.
The Camels, who came into the game 0-for-22 on the power play, scored their second power play goal just 10 seconds after Colby took a tripping penalty with 8:23 remaining. DiPretoro scored with 8:13 remaining on assists from Greg Liautaud and Joe Giordano.
Giordano had the Camels’ best chance to tie when he came from the right side and was stopped by goalie Emerson Verrier with 5:50 to play.
Colby’s Devin Albert drew a slashing penalty with 2:25 to go and the Mules were able to kill the rest of the clock.
Tom Conlin stopped 36 shots for the Camels, while Verrier was credited with 15 saves for Colby.

Men’s hockey earns big 5-2 victory over Amherst

WATERVILLE, Maine — Devin Albert scored three goals and the Colby College men’s hockey team bounced back from a tough loss Friday for a 5-2 victory over Amherst College in NESCAC play Saturday at Alfond Rink.

The Mules improve to 5-5-3 overall and 3-4-1 in the conference, while the Jeffs drop to 3-5-4 and 2-2-3 in the league. Colby came into the game after falling at home to Hamilton College on Friday night.
The teams went into the third period with a 2-2 tie. Colin Reilly scored his first goal of the season and it turned out to be the game-winning score at 2:26 of the third. Kevin Doherty had his first assist and Jack Burton his sixth on the play. Reilly came in from the right side and cut in at the face-off circle to create the shot and goal.
The Mules got some breathing room just 2:05 later on Mario Benicky’s second goal of the year. Colby put extended pressure on the Jeffs in Amherst’s zone before the goal. Michael Rudolf and EJ Rauseo had assists on the score.
With 4:46 to play, Albert got his hat trick and his eighth goal in nine games. Cam MacDonald had a wraparound attempt and Nick O’Connor had the first shot attempt before Albert banged home the rebound.
Albert started the scoring with 16 minutes left in the opening period. The Mules were on the power play and a delayed penalty on Amherst brought out another Colby player. The Mules got to the front of the net and Albert scored from Geoff Sullivan and Michael Decker.
Amherst tied the game at 1-1 on Brendan Burke’s first goal of the year from Patrick Arena and Kevin Ryder at 6:52 of the opening period. Burke came in from the right side and beat goalie Emerson Verrier.
Albert scored his second goal at 13:24 of the first period from MacDonald and Sullivan. MacDonald and O’Connor had a good forecheck after the puck was dumped into the Amherst zone. Albert was left alone in the slot and buried the shot.
The Jeffs had the lone goal of the second period to tie it at 2-2 on Burke’s second score of the game. Ryder had his second assist of the contest and Thomas Lindstrom dished his seventh assist. Ryder was behind the net and made a spin move to get out in front, where he found Burke for the score.
Verrier made a big save with 57 seconds left in the second period on an Amherst two-on-one opportunity. He finished with 23 saves, including 12 in the second period. David Cunningham made 30 stops for Amherst.
