Watch Online: ESPNU Segment Produced by Kaitee Daley '09, Zac Skipp '11

Story posted February 05, 2009

Bowdoin's historic Zamboni ice resurfacer, affectionately known as "The Monster," was the subject of a video produced by Kaitee Daley '09 and Zac Skipp '11 that aired Sunday, February 1, 2009, on ESPNU, the ESPN sister channel that specializes in college sports.

In 1956, Bowdoin was only the fifth college — and just the fourth in the U.S. — to have a machine made by Frank J. Zamboni & Co. in Paramount, Calif.

As an homage to the College's rich ice hockey history and its origins in Dayton Arena, The Monster now occupies a place of prominence over the entrance in the new Sidney J. Watson Arena lobby — atop a pedestal that includes the cornerstone from Dayton.

Having heard the story of The Monster, ESPNU requested a student-produced video to run as part of its Campus Connection series of reports.

Daley, the student reporter seen introducing the video, wrote and narrated the segment; Skipp was responsible for the videography and editing.

The segment aired February 1, 2009, during ESPNU's coverage of the Maine vs. Massachusetts hockey game.
