Our Current Squirt B Coach, Scott Dunnack’s Hockey History.

Scott was born with a hockey rink in his front yard, and a father who was a great player and a gifted coach.  Need I say more?

Scott learned to skate as soon as he could walk.  He played pond hockey with the best.  His father, Jerry, formed a men’s league which played every Sunday afternoon at Dunnack’s Pond, and later at a homemade outdoor rink on Basketshop Road.  Dick Brown (who managed the UConn Rink from its opening in 1964 until about 1992) played and bought them all uniforms.  Scott played with them from age 12 through high school.  They also played spring hockey at the Worcester Arena.

1965-66 found Scott playing on the frosh team at UConn, at the newly opened UConn Rink.  (That would be the open-air one, with the architectural award-winning roof that acted like a wind tunnel.  Coldest place on earth!)  He played varsity for UConn until his graduation in 1970.

Scott was the player-coach of the Columbia Americans Men’s Team from 1970 until 1979.  This team was part of Connecticut Hockey League, out of the Glastonbury Rink.  (The Glastonbury Rink is no more, but used to be just off exit 10 on Route 2)

  • 1979-1988 Scott played on two hockey teams:  Bolton Bruins at Bolton Ice Palace, and Middletown O’Rourkes at the Wesleyn Rink.
  • 1989-90 Superior Ford at UConn Rink
  • 1990-91 Trolley Pub at Conn College Rink in New London
  • 1991-92 Flyers at UConn Rink
  • 1992-93 ACL surgery
  • 1993-1997 Blarney’s at Conn College
  • 1997-99 Sports Bar at Conn College
  • 1999-2005 Bouberes at the Norwich City Rink
  • In 2005 Scott, at 58 years old, reinjured his right knee and hung up his skates.
