Michael H. Thompson

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

I can't say that I knew Mike well, but I was one of the few hockey fans who regularly made it up the hill to watch #18 play in that old cold hockey rink. I'd like to think that more people would have gone to those games if they'd built the new rink sooner. It was always fun watching Mike and Bart Barry compete for scoring leadership in the ECAC with Kenny Hjelm feeding them from his center spot on the Green Line and Ron Butterfield guarding the blue line. Mike ended up breaking the all time scoring record at West Point.
