What happened to Ralph Cox hockey?
He was the last player cut from the famed 1980 Mens Olympic Hockey Team that won the gold medal at Lake Placid. Cox was inducted into the New Hampshire Athletics Hall of Fame in 1986. He then joined the Pittsburgh Penguins as a scout. He won two Stanley Cup rings (in 1991 and 1992).
Who did Herb Brooks cut?
In one of the movie’s most emotional scenes, the US coach, Herb Brooks, calls Cox into his office to relay the news that he had to make one more cut, and Cox was it. Brooks was a tough guy, usually about as emotional as a hockey puck, but it was apparent that having to cut Cox gutted him.
