Under coach Cooney Weiland, Harvard’s 1952-53 men’s ice hockey team went “fast forward” and Amory was a big reason why the Crimson posted is best record in 16 years. He scored a hat trick in the first meeting against rival Yale, leading the Crimson to a 5-2 win. In the season’s final game, he keyed a furious rally that led Harvard past the Elis. He scored the game-tying goal as part of a burst that turned a 2-0 deficit into a 4-2 victory that allowed the Crimson to finish 11-5-1. Amory was the co-recipient of the John Tudor Award, which he shared with Walter Greely.
