Edward “Eddie” J. Jeremiah

The late Ed Jeremiah’s contributions to New Hampshire hockey are unparalleled. After a successful professional hockey career which saw him make stops in areas ranging from New Haven and Boston to Philadelphia and Cleveland, Jeremiah returned to Dartmouth College where he had previously earned seven letters in football, hockey and baseball. Under his direction as head coach, Dartmouth won the Pentagonal League championship in seven of nine years. During one incredible stretch from 1942 to 1946, his Indian squad set an intercollegiate record of 46 games without a defeat. Jeremiah was recognized posthumously by the National Hockey League with the Lester Patrick Award for outstanding service to hockey in the United States.
