Boston College hockey legend Mike Mottau will have his jersey retired on Nov. 27 when his alma mater hosts Minnesota, BC Athletics announced in a statement.
Mottau becomes the 13th player in program history to have his jersey retired. Mottau’s number will remain in rotation, as only his jersey will be retired, and not the number.
Mottau was drafted by the New York Rangers in the 1997 NHL Entry draft. Mottau played for the Eagles for four years, playing in 163 career games. During his career at the Heights, he earned numerous accolades along the way, including two MVP awards in 1998 and 2000.
Mottau then progressed to the National Hockey League, playing for six different teams, playing 321 games in the league. Mottau ascertained 58 points in his tenure in the NHL.
The ceremony will begin during the first intermission during the game against Minnesota, which begins at 1 P.M.
