Rice, Stuckey and Smith selected for NH Legends of Hockey Hall
Three Concord men – Ted Rice, Mark Stuckey and Harvey Smith – will be inducted into the New Hampshire Legends of Hockey Hall of Fame this fall.
Rice (1907-93) was considered one of the greatest players in the city’s history in his time, playing for the West End Team at White Park, the Concord Hockey Club, the Sacred Heart team, the Millville Bruins and many other teams around the state.
Stuckey grew up on the campus of St. Paul’s, later playing for the Hotchkiss School and Princeton University, where he was the leading scorer his senior year. He played 19 years of professional hockey in Italy and Switzerland, and also coached professionally in Italy.
Smith was the longtime hockey voice of WKXL radio, along with broadcast partner Jim Rivers, calling more than 1,000 games together in all sports. He was a hockey color analyst for more than 30 years until his retirement.
The Hall of Fame induction ceremony, to be held Oct. 27, will also recognize the Concord High boys’ and girls’ hockey programs.
