Student Initiative.
David Maine '82, second string goalie, was determined to become a better
goalie, so he designed a machine that would shoot pucks at him. He reasoned that he would
improve if the machine shot pucks at his weak spot instead of firing them at him randomly. He
adjusted the machine to fire pucks at over 100 miles an hour at his left shoulder, and so he
really improved. Naming it the "Green Machine," David entered this in an engineering
competition for the eastern region, and won a prize.
Two Students Died.
