F. Wayne Small '68, a first-year All-American in 1967-68, isthird on Brown's all-time hockey scoring list with 144 points on 68goals and 76 assists. Always a good scorer, Small accounted for 60goals and 45 assists in 45 Canadian Junior C hockey games the yearbefore he entered Brown. The native of St. Thomas, Ontario,combined exceptional speed with a good change of pace and a nosefor the cage. At 5-8, 145-pounds, Small seemed too fragile for therigors of hockey, but when he got the puck on the end of his stickand started one of his patented dashes up ice, he became one of themost explosive scoring threats in collegiate circles. He had theability to hit top speed after only a few strides, and that quickburst frequently enabled him to get past enemy defenders. Small wasa two-time choice for All-East, All-Ivy, and All-New England. Hewas the recipient of the President's Plaque as the OutstandingForward in New England his junior and senior years and in 1967-68he was awarded the Leonard M.
