This year’s Beanpot title will be decided Monday night (weather permitting) at TD Garden, offering the latest chance for someone to etch their names into the tournament’s impressive record books.
One of the most prestigious awards on the Boston college hockey scene is the Beanpot MVP. The award often times serves as a look of what’s to come for NHL prospects. In just the last 25 years, players like Chris Kreider, Nick Bonino, Chris Drury and Tony Amonte have gone on to enjoy success in the NHL after being the tournament’s most valuable player.
One of those MVPs was a high draft pick of the New York Islanders and went on to the NHL after college. Can you name the former Islander who won the 2000 Beanpot MVP?
