Two players, Boston University’s Chris Drury and Northeastern’s Dan McGillis, have been selected for the Beanpot Hall of Fame this year.
Drury, part of the first class to ever win four Beanpot championships, was Beanpot MVP in 1996 and scored seven goals in the eight Beanpot games in his career, good for fourth in goals scored. Drury went on to win the Hobey Baker Memorial Award in his senior season, and won the NHL’s Rookie of the Year award the next season.
McGillis never won the Beanpot title in his four seasons, but led the team to the finals in his senior season before losing to Drury’s BU squad. As a defenseman, he finished with an impressive two goals and three assists in eight Beanpot games. He was an All-America selection in his senior season of 1996, and was twice All-Hockey East. He played 733 games in the NHL for five different teams.
