Times Union Profiles Adam Oates Before Ring of Honor Induction

Dave Aiello wrote, "Jon Paul Morosi of the Albany Times Union wrote an excellent profile of Adam Oates on the occasion of his induction to the RPI Hockey Ring of Honor at Houston Field House. It's probably more accurate to say Oates will inaugurate the Ring of Honor, since his number was the first one placed in it."

"I was talking to John Cloninger while we were reading this article, and both of us thought it was one of the best written articles on the history of RPI hockey in years. Included in it are a photo of John Tiano, another member of the 1985 NCAA Championship Team, embracing Oates. Morosi rightly says 'The photograph may be the most famous in RPI athletic history.' It also includes extensive quotes from former RPI coach Mike Addesa, a rarity in recent years, and Dino Macaluso, one of Oates' best friends who works as a finacial advisor in the Albany area."

"Friday night's ceremony honoring Adam Oates is likely to be the first of several that will bring back members of the 1985 NCAA Championship Team on the twentieth anniversary of their incredible season."
