Edward M. Good '71

Edward M. Good of the Class of 1971, a gifted scorer and vocal leader during a legendary period of Bowdoin hockey, you were the backbone of a team that experienced historic success. You graduated as Bowdoin’s all-time leader in points, and still remain to this day fourth all-time in points per game.

An AHCA College Division All-American in 1970 and a member of the ECAC All-East First Team in 1970 and 1971, you led the team in scoring both years. As a junior, you guided the team to the ECAC finals and a record sixteen consecutive wins; in your senior year, as team captain, you led the way to the ECAC championship.

Leading with an inspirational attitude in the locker room and tremendous skill and a tireless work ethic on the ice, you later became an extraordinarily successful coach, teacher, and headmaster at Northwood School. You were described by one former teammate, speaking both of your time at Bowdoin and your subsequent career as a coach and educator, as “a fierce competitor, a leader, a great teammate, and a builder wherever he has been.”

Bowdoin’s legendary hockey coach Sid Watson once confided in a teammate of yours that you were “the engine that drove” those record-breaking teams, squads loaded with several other All-Americans. Your teammates recognized that, for all your individual success, you were key in bringing the team together as a cohesive, winning unit.

We are proud to stand with your family, friends, and teammates to recognize your achievements and your tremendous contributions to Bowdoin hockey, and to celebrate your induction into the Bowdoin College Athletic Hall of Honor
