Podcast: Mike Mottau

Mike Mottau

Growing up as a college hockey fan in the ’90s meant watching a lot of BC-BU games. At the time, BU was on top of the college hockey world, but starting in 1996, the dynamic of the rivalry started to shift thanks to a recruiting class led by an Avon, Mass. native and Thayer Academy defenseman.

Former NHL defenseman and 1999-00 Hobey Baker winner Mike Mottau joined me to talk about helping start the Boston College dynasty, playing in two national championships, having his name incorrectly called at the 1997 NHL Draft, being selected by the Rangers and playing with Brian Leetch, Mark Messier and Adam Graves, spending time with all three of the metropolitan teams, playing in Calgary and Florida, getting traded at the deadline and being a scout for the Blackhawks.
