Biographical / Historical
In the early 1990s, when financial constraints further threatened the team’s status, Sands established the Friends of Tufts Hockey, a group which raised funds to support and sustain the hockey program. In 2001, Tufts joined the NESCAC hockey league. Sands also helped raise funds to turn old offices at the Malden rink where the Tufts team practices and plays into a locker room, which the team named the Ben Sands Locker Room in 2008.
In 2018, at the first Tufts Athletic Department Hall of Fame induction ceremony, Sands was honored with the inaugural Brown and Blue award for his work in bringing varsity ice hockey back to Tufts, and ensuring the team’s survival.
