As a member of the most celebrated American hockey team in history, Dave Silk collected a gold medal for his teams "Miracle on Ice" performance by university players in the 1980 Olympic Winter Games at Lake Placid, New York.

Silk was a New Englander who played hockey at Thayer Academy in Braintree and went on to play at Boston University where he was named to the NCAA's Championship all-tournament team in both 1977 and 1978. He was selected by the New York Rangers 59th overall in the '78 Amateur Draft. Silk played for the United States National team in 1979-80 and then went on to the Olympics to collect America's gold medal in hockey. From gold, he made a brief debut in the NHL with the Rangers for two games and moved to their AHL affiliate, the New Haven Nighthawks.

He spent the next three seasons in New York before being dealt to the Boston Bruins in 1983, where he would split time in the NHL and AHL with the Hershey Bears. Silk was then claimed off waivers by the Detroit Red Wings the next year. After becoming a free agent in '85, Silk signed with the Winnipeg Jets, finished his NHL career, and moved on to Germany for the 1986-87 season.

Silk played in Germany until 1990 when he hung up his skates for good without a Stanley Cup, but tightly gripping a much cherished gold medal.
