Class of 1977

No player in NCAA hockey history has scored more points than Dave Rost, who compiled an astounding 330 points during his remarkable four-year career at Army.

Rost was tabbed a first-team All-East selection in 1977, capping a sparkling senior season in which he set an Academy record with 108 points, while jointly setting the NCAA single-season scoring mark with Clarkson's Dave Taylor. The Black Knights' career assist leader with 226, Rost tallied 104 career goals to graduate in third place in that category. His 66 assists in 1974-75 remain an Academy record.

The Black Knights won at least 18 games during each of his four years on the varsity, compiling a 78-31-3 (.709) record and earning four successive trips to the ECAC Division II Tournament. Rost led the team in scoring during each of his final three campaigns.
