With all the buzz surrounding the possibility of former Troy-Columbia forward Connor McDavid going first overall in the upcoming NHL draft, I thought now would be a good time to revive the somewhat-annual alumni game.
This one will be Saturday, May 30th at 4 p.m. at the Knickerbacker in Troy. Once again it’s $20 for returning players who already have an alumni jersey and $45 for anyone who needs a jersey. In hopes of fielding two full teams we’ll be opening it up to friends of TC hockey again, but if we can’t get enough guys I will bring in a comparable team to play against us.
Since our last alumni game in 2013 we lost Gene Delvecchio, former athletic director and hockey coach of Troy City School District, so we will honor him with a moment of silence and a short ceremony prior to the start of the game.
After the game we’ll all head over to Ale House for drinks, assuming the falling Canadian dollar doesn’t cripple the world economy by then.
If you plan to play please RSVP as soon as possible, no later than April 30th, and make sure you send payment to me via PayPal at CountCrow4@aol.com as a gift by then, as well. If I don’t already have your info, please send me your full name, position, school, graduation year, and preferred jersey number and size, too.
Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
