Brock Tredway

Brock Tredway was an Ivy League hockey star.

Tredway played at Cornell University from 1977 through 1981, while also earning a business degree in marketing. Tredway is the school's all time leader in several offensive categories including goals scored (113) and hat tricks (13) and is inducted in the school's athletic Hall of Fame.

Tredway was also a notable member of the school's Quill and Dagger society, which recognizes exemplary students and is said to be "the highest non-scholastic honor within reach of undergraduates."

Undrafted by the NHL, Tredway was undeterred and continued to pursue hockey professionally. The right winger signed with the Los Angeles Kings organization upon graduation, and played parts of four seasons with their farm team in New Haven. He played another season in Austria, too.

Tredway did get the chance to play in one NHL game - a playoff game in 1982.

Tredway left the ice and headed to the office, working for marketing and banking companies before becoming a partner in Athleticool LLC, responsible for marketing and sales of athletic wear.
