Biography

After prepping at Philips Exeter in New Hampshire, and spending some time in the Coast Guard, Don Whiston went to Brown, playing varsity baseball and hockey, and is undoubtedly the greatest goalie the Brown hockey team has ever had. In fact, his college career goals against average of 1.6 per game is among the lowest in college history. In 1951, he led his school to the NCAA finals, where they lost to Michigan; however, Whiston was voted the tournament’s MVP for his performance. After his Olympic appearance in 1952, Don Whiston returned to Boston where he built a brokerage business. He continued in that business but found time in the early 60s to coach hockey at Brown for three years.
