Providence, R.I. - Former Friar women's ice hockey great Stephanie O'Sullivan will be one of four inductees enshrined into the Massachusetts Hockey Hall of Fame class of 2008. The Dorchester native headlines the class of 2008 along with Bruins Hall of Famer Milt Schmidt, legendary hockey builder Walter Brown and former Harvard, Olympic and Bruins great Ted Donato. In addition, Mass Hockey builders Allen Wright, Gordon Blaney and Gerry Bartholomew will be inducted, as well as 1952 Olympic Silver Medalist Joe Czarnota, Billerica coach Paul Barber, former NHL linesman Kevin Collins, and longtime college hockey and Bruins broadcaster Dave Shea.
The ten men and one woman will be inducted into the Massachusetts Hockey Hall of Fame on Wednesday, November 19, 2008. The 14th Annual induction ceremony and dinner will start at 6:30 p.m. at Lombardo's in Randolph, Mass. Bernie Corbett, longtime voice of the BU Terriers, will serve as Master of Ceremonies.
O'Sullivan on being inducted into the Massachusetts Hockey Hall of Fame: "It's an incredible honor to be awarded by my home state. It's actually extremely humbling to be associated with the present and past nominees. I never envisioned anything like this. These nominees speak volumes about hockey in Massachusetts. My time at PC was one of the great periods of my life. Winning four ECAC Championships was something I'll always remember."
While at Providence, O'Sullivan was named ECAC Player of the Year and New England Hockey Writers Player of the Year in 1995 as she scored 40 goals and 28 assists for 68 points. She was named to the ECAC All-Star Team in all but her freshman campaign at Providence. As a freshman, she was named the ECAC Rookie of the Year. She led the Friars to four conescutive ECAC Championship titles. O'Sullivan dominates the Friar record book as she is second all-time in career points (253), first in asssists (127) and second in goals scored (126).
After her impressive career as a Friar, O'Sullivan went on to play for Team USA in the World Championships in 1994,'97,'99 and `00. Over her career with the US Women's National Team, she tallied 10 goals and 13 assists in just 20 games.
