CHN Staff Report
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. Marty McInnis, a one-time star at Boston College who played nearly 800 games in the NHL, has been named an assistant coach at his alma mater.
McInnis played three seasons at Boston College (1988-91), and was par of the famed “HEM Line” with Steve Heinze and David Emma. Emma won the 1991 Hobey Baker Award.
As a sophomore, the left wing was the top point-scorer in the Hockey East Tournament with nine – including a record-tying five-goal game against Merrimack in the first round.
A native of Hingham, Mass., McInnis went on to play for the U.S. national team in 1991-92, and eventually the Olympic team in Albertville, France. He played 12 seasons in the NHL as a member of the New York Islanders, Calgary Flames, Anaheim Ducks and Boston Bruins. He totaled 420 points – 170 goals and 250 assists – in 796 regular-season games in his NHL career.
McInnis, who retired from professional hockey following the 2002-03 season, was inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Athletic Hall of Fame in 2012.
He fills the vacancy left by former assistant coach Jim Logue, who announced his retirement in late June.
