Special Hockey Brown Event Recap!

By GPYHA, 02/11/18, 2:45PM EST


Thank you to the Brown Men's hockey team for a fantastic day!

The Brown Men’s Hockey Team recently hosted our Special Hockey players to an all-day event at Meehan Auditorium.

Activities began in the afternoon game with the Providence team playing the Southern Connecticut Storm Special Hockey. The parents and fans were treated to an action-packed game that resulted in a very tight loss to the visitors. After the traditional handshake, Brown Head Coach Brendan Whittet came onto the ice and spoke to the players and presented them with an official Brown logo game puck.

The kids were then treated to pizza and drinks before making their way to the Brown bench to view the pregame warm-ups for the game between Brown and UConn. Then for the highlight of the day: both special hockey teams skated onto the ice to stand at the respective goal line with the college players, Providence with Brown and Connecticut with UConn, for the playing of the National Anthem.

Our appreciation to the Brown Men’s Team for graciously taking time to sign autographs and interact with the kids both on and off the ice and a very special thanks to Coach Whittet for orchestrating such a great day for our kids!
