Few have done as much for women’s hockey in both New England and the United States than Scott Fusco (Burlington, Mass.).
Fusco was a star in men’s hockey, playing for the 1984 and 1988 US Olympic ice hockey team and winning the Hobey Baker Award in 1986 with Harvard. He was also inducted in the US Hockey Hall of Fame in 2002.
Still, his most substantial impact on hockey comes on the women’s side. He’s currently the president of the East Coast Wizards, which is the largest girls hockey program in North America. On top of that, he’s the commissioner of the New England Girls Hockey League.
In the latest Rinkwise podcast, host Stephanie Wood talks with Fusco about his upbringing in New England hockey, how his three daughters inspired him to get involved in women’s hockey and the growth of the girls’ game.
