Robert R. Gaudreau '66, a two-time All-American, came to Brown from Hope High in Providence. During his three varsity seasons, the 6-3, 190-pound Gaudreau stamped himself as one of the greatest of all Brown hockey players. He was first team All-Ivy three straight years, in addition to being a two-time All-east and All-New England selection. Gaudreau was the highest scoring defenseman in Eastern collegiate ranks for three years and ended his career as Brown's most production defenseman with 35 goals and 55 assists for 90 points. The smooth-skating Gaudreau was voted the outstanding defenseman in New England for the 1965-66 season and he received the Walter Brown Trophy given annually to the outstanding hockey player in the East. In 1964-65, Gaudreau led the Bruins to the Ivy League title and a place in the NCAA Tournament held at Meehan Auditorium. The Bruin All-American played on the 1968 United States Olympic hockey team.
