One of the greatest ice hockey players in Boston State College annals, Dick Leahy was named to the All-East and All-New England teams in 1968, while helping the Warriors to a fourth-place finish at the inaugural NAIA National Championship Hockey tournament. The 1970 graduate averaged 1.5 points per game with 103 points in 68 games, good for the fifth-highest scoring average in school history. He netted 45 goals and assisted on 58 other scores, while playing on the first line as a forward his entire career. Leahy also saw action for the first-line power play and penalty killing units for the length of his career. He was Boston State's second-leading scorer in both 1968 and 1969 and was named the team Most Valuable Player in 1969, while earning the first of two school Sportsmanship Awards. No stranger to success, Leahy helped the Warriors to three straight Codfish Bowl titles and was selected to the Codfish Bowl All-Tournament team in 1969. He was not only a Sportsmanship Award recipient in 1970, but also achieved captain status for both the hockey and golf squads. Leahy enjoyed a very successful golf career at Boston State as well, winning over 75% of his matches over three seasons and was named team Co-MVP in 1969 and 1970.
