Description

Forever Faithful celebrates the history of Cornell hockey, focusing on twenty-four memorable games played by the men’s and women’s teams since the opening of Lynah Rink in 1957. The foreword was written by Ken Dryden (Cornell ’69), who led the Big Red team to its first NCAA championship in 1967, won six Stanley Cups with the Montreal Canadiens, and is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. The narrative begins with an early history of the program, when games were played outdoors on Beebe Lake, and moves on to chapters celebrating the rituals and traditions of the Lynah Faithful and the key rivalries of both the men’s and women’s teams. Game accounts follow, each one featuring insights from coaches and players who were involved and illustrated by many color and black-and-white photographs of the players and game action. The book concludes with an appendix that lists key statistics and accomplishments of the men’s and women’s programs.
