This is the first year that the Stallions are officially part of the schedule and the event. We are excited about what the Kalamazoo hockey community is doing for kids with Autism and we are proud to be a part of it.
We are wearing special jerseys to commemorate the event and have invited a special guest, Mason, to drop the puck before our game with Calvin.
Mason is 10 years old and was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4. Mason is currently in 4th grade at Pathfinder education center and attends school 5 days a week.. The school has helped him greatly with reading, life skills, writing his name and using a device to communicate with his peers.
Mason loves hockey and is a friend of Stallion Head Coach Andy Reynolds. Mason likes to get his hockey net and stick out and play whenever he can. His favorite team is Western Michigan and he loves his new jersey!
There is a Donation jar in the lobby if you are interested in making a donation today and please consider reviewing the auction items online and making a bid there. The auction will be open through Saturday, February 19 at 6pm. Thank you for your generosity!
FINAL REGULAR SEASON GAME
While we honored the Seniors last week, this week will be their final home game at Wings West and we hope that you stay to give them a big round of applause when they exit the ice tonight.
If you missed them last, week, please take a look at each of their Spotlights - they are an impressive group on and off the ice.
