Mike Sullivan becomes inducted into the Beanpot Hall of Fame



It is because of these accomplishments in Boston University hockey, he is being inducted into the Beanpot Hall of Fame this year. The Beanpot is an annual tournament between the four major colleges in Boston.




When asked about getting his 2024 induction into the Beanpot HOF, Sullivan stated;
"To be selected to go into the Beanpot Hall of Fame is an incredible honor, especially when you consider the caliber of players that have played in the Beanpot from all four schools. I was fortunate enough to play in the finals all four years that I was there, winning it twice – my freshman and senior years. The camaraderie around that tournament is forever etched in my memory".
