Marc Cavosie '03: Calder Cup Champion

Rensselaer hockey standout Marc Cavosie ’03, 2002 ECAC Player of the Year, capped his rookie season in the American Hockey League by helping his team, the Houston Aeros, capture the Calder Cup.

In dramatic fashion, the Houston Aeros defeated the Hamilton Bulldogs 3-0 in Game 7 of the Calder Cup Finals. Cavosie, who had sat out the first 10 games of the season with a fractured cheekbone, scored three goals and eight points during Houston’s playoff run. He scored the game-winning goal in the series-clinching 2-1 victory over top-seeded Grand Rapids in the semifinals.

Cavosie, who moved from center to wing in the postseason, played in 54 regular-season games and had 19 points (five goals, 14 assists) for the West Division champion Houston (47-23-7-3).

Cavosie was a standout for the Engineers. In 2001-02, he scored a collegiate career-high 23 goals, 27 assists for 50 points in 36 games, and led the team in points, assists, power play goals (9), shorthanded goals (2), and game-winning goals (4). He was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award. Cavosie left Rensselaer after his junior year to sign a three-year contract with the NHL’s Minnesota Wild.

“It seems like I made the right decision,” Cavosie told a reporter. “Game 7 was unbelievable. To come out and play as well as we did and shut them out was really something. Being able to contribute in the playoffs and starting to play well was a thrill. The environment was awesome.”—TL
