Former Icemen Hoists the Cup
April 3, 2007
I was just checking up on former Icemen standout Keith Aucoin when I discovered this great article:
Former Norwich standout Keith Aucoin doesn’t have his name on the Stanley Cup yet, but he’s getting close. The 2001 Division III Player of the Year played in the Carolina Hurricanes’ system this season, and was on the reserve roster for the Hurricanes’ postseason run. That meant he was with the team throughout the playoffs, on standby in case an injury occurred.
Though he didn’t get into the action, Aucoin was invited to take part in the Hurricanes’ post-game celebration, including, of course, hoisting the Stanley Cup.
Makes me curious who the last Binghamton alumni was to come so close to the Stanley Cup. As for Aucoin this season, he has played another 8 games with the Hurricanes while also setting a career high in the AHL with 90 points in 59 games (25/65) and also accumulating 92 PIMs.
