Needham’s Eddie Barry, cofounder of Codfish Bowl, built a hockey showcase

The Codfish Bowl, the second-oldest invitational college hockey tournament in the country, was started in 1965 by Boston State College’s first and only hockey and golf coach, Needham resident Eddie Barry, and its athletic director, the late Gus Sullivan.

“We already had the Beanpot and at the time, college hockey was just two divisions, large and small schools, so it was a chance to showcase teams like ours,’’ recalled Barry, 93, an inaugural inductee to the University of Massachusetts Boston Athletic Hall of Fame in 2003.
