Derek Edgerly
Class of 1990 - Hockey


Stoneham High School boasts its share of great athletes, but few of them can claim to have broken a Middlesex League record. Such is the case of Derek Edgerly, who broke the league record for goals scored in a hockey career.

The Class of 1990 product went into his final game needing two goals to break the record. Edgerly responded with four goals and two assists to give him a career total of 98 goals and 62 assists for a 160 points, which was also a career high for a Stoneham High player.

That replicated an earlier season feat of four goals and two assists against Woburn, which was superseded by a four goal, three assist eff ort against Winchester. Those two games occurred during a scoring tear in which the senior torched opponents with 11 goals and 10 assists in a five-game span.

His output garnered the team captain a Middlesex League All-Team spot for a third straight year and a selection as the league MVP. He was also named Boston Globe All-Scholastic, second team. His statistics for that senior season saw him post gaudy numbers of 28 goals and 23 assists for 51 points.

That followed a junior year in which Edgerly scored 29 goals and a sophomore season of 25 goals. In his sophomore and junior seasons, Edgerly played for the prestigious U.S. Under-18 Select Team. Playing in the School All-America Tournament at Boston University’s Walter Brown Arena, Edgerly led his team in scoring with three goals and three assists.

All of that drew interest from pro scouts and Edgerly was drafted in the sixth round by the Chicago Blackhawks. Instead, he opted to attend Northeastern University where he was offered a four-year scholarship. After two seasons as a Huskie, Edgerly turned professional and spent five years in the minor leagues with a career best 35 goals and 41 assists for 76 points for the Lakeland Ice Warriors in 1994-95.

Edgerly now gives back to the game of hockey as an assistant varsity coach for Winchester High School and currently resides in Stoneham.
