NEWARK, N.J. - Former Harvard men’s
hockey player Derek Maguire ’94 was recently inducted into
the New Jersey High School Ice Hockey Hall of Fame.
Maguire, who tallied 110 goals and 132 assists in his prep years, led Delbarton School to four Mennen Cup titles from 1988-91. He played four years at Harvard before being drafted by the Montreal Canadiens.
“I am humbled deeply by this honor,” said Maguire upon induction. “My four years of high school hockey in New Jersey had a big effect on my entire life. Today was the culmination of one of the most important times of my life.”

On April 3, Delbarton School and St. Joseph’s School will face each other for the “Greatest Game Never Played”. The 1989 New Jersey Championship game was never played due to an outbreak of the measles. Read this New York Times article for more information.
