The following from the University of Denver on the induction in 2000 of the 1959-60 team into the university's Athletics Hall of Fame.

1959-60 Hockey Team. As one of the most well-known and accomplished sports teams in the history of the University of Denver, the 1959-60 hockey team won the hearts and praises of the University's students, faculty, administrators and staff as well as the greater Denver community. This team claimed the WCHA playoff championship (17-4-1) after defeating local rival, Colorado College by a score of 3-1. They went on to win Denver's second NCAA National Championship by defeating Boston University 6-4 and then Michigan Tech in the finals by a score of 5-3. Denver won the last 14 games straight to finish the season with an overall record of 27-4-3. The Pioneers also proved their superior skills outside of NCAA competition with victories over the Swedish Olympic Team (5-3) and West German Olympic Team (6-1). That year, Denver also played the Russian Olympic Team to a 2-2 tie in overtime. Probably the most fantastic feat for this team, however, was defeating the first-ever United States Olympic Gold Medal Team (7-5) and then playing them in a second contest to a 5-5 tie in overtime. Denver finished the season registering a total of eight hat tricks and placing five team members on the all-league team. Team members Marty Howe, George Konik and Bill Masterton also received All-America honors for this historic season. Other members of the 1959-60 hockey team are Coach Murray Armstrong, Al Barnhill, Trent Beatty, Con Collie, Paul DiNapoli, Max Geisthardt, Ray Hamlin, Dick Jacob, Paul Josephson, Norb Kemp, George Kirkwood, Terry Lomnes, Murray MacDonald, John MacMillan, Grant Munro, Bruce Walker, Jerry Walker and Ken Williamson.
