On Sept. 7, Torrey Mitchell 2002—the only Selwyn House Old Boy ever to play in the NHL—was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame at the University of Vermont, where Torrey attended after graduating from Selwyn House.
Torrey was team captain and played for three seasons with the UVM Catamounts before going on to play 10 seasons in the NHL.
“The ceremony was held at UVM’s Davis Center in front of a crowd of 400, including the UVM President, the Board of Directors, members of the Athletic Department, professors, former teammates and current athletes,” recalls Torrey’s father, Steve Mitchell, retired Selwyn House Athletic Director, who attended the ceremony with Torrey’s mother, Sheila.
“Even Torrey’s retired math teacher was in attendance, along with the lady who helped Torrey with his compliance issues in 2004!
“It was a very proud moment for our 16 family members and friends who attended. From start to finish we appreciated this first-class dinner and ceremony,” said Steve.
