College Hockey:
Former Babson player Griffin reportedly drowns in Nantucket harbor

Nantucket police have confirmed to Boston.com that former Babson forward Corey Griffin, 27, died early Saturday morning after apparently drowning in the harbor.

A witness stated Griffin had dove into the harbor from the “Juice Guys” establishment, then floated to the surface before going under again and not resurfacing. Authorities are investigating.

Police told the Cape Cod Times that Nantucket lifeguard Colin Perry was called to the scene and recovered Griffin from the bottom of the harbor. He was pronounced dead at 3 a.m. at Cottage Hospital.

Griffin was on the hockey team while enrolled at Boston College in 2006-07, but never saw game action.

“[Corey] cared about everybody else,” said his father, Robert Griffin, in the Boston.com report. “He will be missed.”
