Local hockey: SLU’s Hurlbut to go into Amerks Hall of Fame


ROCHESTER — The Rochester Americans will induct former team captain Mike Hurlbut, current St. Lawrence University associate head coach and a former Saints standout, into the Amerks Hall of Fame on Friday, Jan. 10 when the team hosts the Hamilton Bulldogs.

The Massena native is the longest-tenured captain in the history of the Amerks, having worn the “C” during all five of his seasons in Rochester (1997-98 to 2001-02) while leading the team to appearances in the Calder Cup Finals in 1999 and 2000.

The defenseman appeared in 288 games with the Amerks and recorded 167 points on 44 goals and 123 assists to rank tied for fifth all-time in points and 11th in games played among Rochester defensemen. In four of his five seasons with the Amerks, Hurlbut either held or shared the team lead in points by a blueliner.

Hurlbut, in his 12th year on St. Lawrence’s coaching staff, appeared in 839 pro hockey games between the NHL, including the Buffalo Sabres, New York Rangers and Quebec Nordiques, as well as the AHL and IHL.
