DHD Goalie Instructor Kim St-Pierre to be inducted into McGill Hall of Fame
MONTREAL – Five athletes, including three-time Olympic gold medalist Kim St-Pierre of Chateauguay, Que., a former Montreal Canadiens forward and a pair of ex-Montreal Alouettes football players, have been selected for induction to the McGill University Sports Hall of Fame.
Other laureates include the late Jack McGill, originally from Ottawa, who skated for the Habs from 1934 to 1937, former Alouettes Matthieu Quiviger and Peter Howlett, both native Montrealers, as well as national team swimmer Holly McComb, who was born in Lachine, Que., raised in suburban Dollard des Ormeaux and now resides in Stouffville, Ont.
The hallowed hall now has 121 honoured members, including 24 Olympians, since the pantheon opened in 1996.
The induction luncheon will kick-off the University's Homecoming Week celebrations on Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014 and only 200 tickets are available for the ceremony, scheduled to be held off campus for the first time, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Tickets are $65 and can be reserved by contacting the McGill Alumni Association at 514-398-8288.
Brief profiles of each new inductee follows. More detailed profiles will be posted online at www.mcgillathletics.ca each Wednesday for the next five weeks. Biographies of all previous inductees to the McGill Sports Hall of Fame are available online at http://www.mcgillathletics.ca/hof.aspx
St-Pierre, 35, was a four-time All-Canadian goaltender at McGill, where she earned a kinesiology degree in 2005. She single-handedly brought respectability to the Martlets hockey program, which made the playoffs in each of her four years after failing to qualify in 11 of the previous 12 seasons. In 33 regular-season games with the Martlets, St-Pierre posted a 19-8-6 record with 12 shutouts and a 1.74 goals-against average, making over 50 saves in a game on nine occasions, including a career-best and school record 62 stops. In 2003, she won the Jim Thompson Trophy at the BLG Awards gala as the CIS female athlete of the year.
