Robb-not sure if i answered  your comment about NY  not being a hockey town--I strongly  disagree.Where else  in the world  do THREE  pro hockey teams play within  30  miles  [now  just 10]  Islanders,Rangers & Devils?

Hell, Canada  couldn't  even  support Montreal & Nordiques.

Forget where  Winnipeg Jets  moved  to?

Other Cornell great to have his number retired by the school is Joe Nieuwendyk, from Oshawa. 

A few other Ivy League hockey players to make the NHL, beside Dryden and Nieuwendyk:

Matt Moulson (Cornell)
Douglas Murray (Cornell)
Ben Lovejoy (Dartmouth)
Ted Donato (Harvard)
Don Sweeney (Harvard)
Alex Killorn (Harvard)
Todd Simpson (Brown)

Joe,

Since no one else responded....I had privately taken a shot that the Cornell 3-time Stanley Cup winner might be Adam Oates. Then I cheated and looked it up. Not Oates although he apparently was a college hockey star for RPI in Albany/Troy (not too far from Rochester where I did some of my schooling, Cornell having admitted me but not providing sufficient funding).  The correct answer is......well, maybe I should refrain in case someone (Rob?) wants to give it an honest shot.
Sorry, I don't know much about US college hockey (virtually NOTHING about The Ivy League, and the East Coast schools, in general).  I did follow The WCHA and CCHA during the '60s and '70s.  I followed U. of Minnesota, Michigan, Michigan State, Michigan Tech, St. Louis U, Denver U., Colorado, Alaska, Wisconsin, Lake Superior State, North Dakota, and the rest of the Minnesota schools.  But I know nothing about the eastern schools, and not a lot about the western schools after 1980.

The name and team escapes me but the other day I read about a new NHL goalie who stands 6'7". Good gracious!

Mike, I'll let it lie another day for the other famous Cornell grad.

Other Dryden nicknames were "Giraffe" (my favorite) and "Monster." He was a tall goalie at 6'4.

Robb, were there other tall goaltenders before Dryden? My recollection is they were generally short, quick-reflex guys. If Dryden was the first tall guy, guess he'd he the Cal Ripken of the NHL in the way Cal was seen to change the prototype of what a SS could look like. (Actually, he wasn't the first tall, famous SS but people forget Marty Marion, who at 6'2 was 2 inches shorter than Cal but very tall for a SS in his time).

Jean Beliveau  scored 3  power play goals in about 45 seconds.  Reason rule was changed. And helped get him on SI cover before Rocket & Howe.--1958.


Typical  Judge game--HR,  couple k's,walk or 2.

"Four Story Goalie" -- One of several nicknames for Ken Dryden, who stood 6'4 without skates.

Two more trivia questions:

Something I had forgotten about Dryden: He was first drafted in 1964 by the Boston Bruins but did not want to play for them (not sure why). So, he was traded with a player who never played an NHL game to Montreal for two other guys who also never played in the NHL. But, he never reported to the Canadiens, choosing instead to go to Cornell. Didn't make his NHL debut until 6 years after being drafted (1970).

1. Anyone know two more nicknames Dryden went by?

2. Two Cornell players have had their jerseys retired by the university. Both longtime NHL stars. One is Dryden. The other one graduated in the mid 80s and played 20 years in the NHL for multiple teams. Who is he?
Clue: One of only 11 NHL players to win the Stanley Cup with three different teams.

Howe hat rick was something like goal, assist, and penalty. Or fighting major, goal, and assist. Still remember him dismembering NYR tough guy Orland Kurtenbach. And the opening faceoff puck had not even quite dropped yet! 

Good enough. I always heard "goal, assist and a fight."

Howe dismembered a lot of guys. Kurtenbach was definitely a tough guy.

Goal, assist and fight is correct.
