Scott Burt to Join The Idaho Steelhead Wall of Honor
Former Idaho Steelhead great Scott Burt will have his #12 jersey retired February 3rd when the Steelheads host the Utah Grizzlies.
Burt will be honored during the first intermission in a ceremony that will include the raising of his #12 banner to join those of #22 Cal Ingraham, #4 Jeremy Mylymok, and #16 Marty Flichel.
Burt says, “Having your jersey retired means the most as a hockey player. All the hard work and dedication has paid off with this achievement and recognition. Being able to join the other three players on the wall is an honor, and what they have done in their careers means a ton.”
Burt served as an assistant captain and co-captain during a seven-year tenure that spanned both the WCHL and ECHL eras in Boise. From 2000 to 2007, Burt helped bring two Kelly Cup championships to Idaho and played in 403 regular-season games, second all-time. Burt also ranks third in Steelheads history in goals (111) and points (250).
Last year Burt was honored as a member of the Steelheads’ 20th Anniversary All-Time Team. He is currently the assistant coach of the Western Hockey League’s Spokane Chiefs. His jersey will be the first retired by the Steelheads since Flichel’s jersey retirement ceremony in January of 2015.
Burt also said, “This honor means so much to me and my family and I’m speechless.”
