McPhee Returns To BG This Weekend

Posted: Updated:

BOWLING GREEN – Bowling Green State University welcomes back hockey great George McPhee this Friday. McPhee, the current general manager of the Washington Capitals, will take part in a special fundraiser on Friday, Oct. 26, in the Center Ice Lounge at the BGSU Ice Arena.

The event will start at 12 p.m. and will run until roughly 2 p.m. Those wishing to participate can click the link above to register, or call (419) 372-2401 to register and pay on-site. Cost to attend the event is $50, which includes a $30 charitable gift to the hockey program.

McPhee burst on the scene as a Falcon in 1978-79, leading the team and the CCHA in scoring with 88 points as a freshman, and earning the honor of CCHA Rookie of the Year.  A two-time team captain, McPhee became BG's career scoring leader with 114 goals and 153 assists for 267 points (a mark that was topped one year later).

McPhee earned All-American and All-CCHA honors as a senior, before being named the 1982 Hobey Baker Award winner, college hockey's equivalent of the college football's Heisman Trophy.  He was the CCHA's first Hobey Baker Award winner, and was inducted to the BGSU Athletic Hall of Fame in 2006.
