Every year, we allow the BC Interruption readers to vote in their own member of the incoming BCI Hall of Fame class. Last week we asked for nominations and votes on who would be selected this year, and the votes are in.
Today, we induct former Boston College Women’s Hockey and current Boston Pride player Katie Burt into the BC Interruption Hall of Fame.
Katie Burt is arguably the most decorated player on Boston College’s second most successful team of the last decade. For a program that has a history of producing All-World goaltenders, Burt set herself apart from the rest with a record-shattering career. She is the all-time BC Women’s Hockey leader in just about every goaltending statistic of importance — wins, shutouts, goals against average, and save percentage — but is also one of the best goalies to play the sport for any team. Burt has the Hockey East career records in wins (70), goals against average (1.39), minutes played (4702:14) and shutouts (24).
But her most impressive record is in all-time wins. Katie Burt is the winningest goaltender in women’s college hockey history, posting a ridiculous 121-13-10 record in her four years on the Heights. Her 121 wins surpassed Noora Räty of Minnesota, who held the record with 114, and is second in all of college hockey to Michigan’s Marty Turco, who had 127.
Katie Burt beat out an impressive field of reader-nominated candidates. The vote tally was as follows:
Danya Abrams 18 (10%)
Jack Bicknell 12 (6%)
Katie Burt 108 (58%)
Bob Cousy 13 (7%)
Tom Davis 0 (0%)
Louis Hinnant 5 (3%)
Joe Mullen 23 (13%)
Paul Zuzauskas 6 (3%)
Congratulations to Katie for being selected to the BC Interruption Hall of Fame class of 2018!
