Former Brown ice hockey coach Herb Hammond passed away on July
23 at his home in Fort Gratiot, MI, after battling
Herb was known to many as a highly respected college coach, NHL pro scout and teacher/mentor. He was perhaps even better known as one of the most well liked people in hockey. He was the head ice hockey coach at Brown from 1983-1988, and then worked in the Brown athletic department for two years.
Herb always wore a smile and was a genuine person who kept in touch with many of his players from Brown (1982 – 88), Plattsburgh (1980 – 1983), Oswego (1968 - 80) and the NHL (17 years beginning in 1989).
