From the first intercollegiate hockey contest in American history, in 1896, to today, Yale hockey has provided its fans with countless memorable moments. Over the course of more than one hundred seasons, the Bulldogs have won intercollegiate, league, and conference championships and have delivered unbelievable comebacks, spectacular offensive displays, and breathtaking goaltending performances. Bulldogs on Ice: Yale University Men's Ice Hockey tells the stories of many Eli icons, including the two pillars of Yale hockey, head coaches Murray Murdoch and Tim Taylor; offensive stars and Olympians Ding Palmer, Jack Morrison, and Bob Brooke, as well as scoring king Jeff Hamilton; defensive wizards such as Jack Duffy and Ray Giroux; and All-American goaltenders Gerry Jones, Mike O'Neill, and Alex Westlund. In addition, Bulldogs on Ice examines through words and photographs the notable accomplishments of other Eli stars, including former U.S. Secretary of State Cyrus Vance and former IBM chief executive officer John Akers.
