F. Wayne Small '68, a first-year All-American in 1967-68, is third on Brown's all-time hockey scoring list with 144 points on 68 goals and 76 assists. Always a good scorer, Small accounted for 60 goals and 45 assists in 45 Canadian Junior C hockey games the year before he entered Brown. The native of St. Thomas, Ontario, combined exceptional speed with a good change of pace and a nose for the cage. At 5-8, 145-pounds, Small seemed too fragile for the rigors of hockey, but when he got the puck on the end of his stick and started one of his patented dashes up ice, he became one of the most explosive scoring threats in collegiate circles. He had the ability to hit top speed after only a few strides, and that quick burst frequently enabled him to get past enemy defenders. Small was a two-time choice for All-East, All-Ivy, and All-New England. He was the recipient of the President's Plaque as the Outstanding Forward in New England his junior and senior years and in 1967-68 he was awarded the Leonard M. Fowle Award as the Most Valuable Player in New England. Small earned his M.A. at Carelton University in 1971 and currently is playing hockey in Europe.
