Earlier this year, the Alumni conducted their annual game held at Medicom IcePark in Springfield. It was a great turnout, great game, and even better seeing all Alumni skating with the Bear head on their chest yet again. The fans showed up for this free admission game to see the Ice Bears who had converted them into hockey fans and some even players.
The fans and players were treated to a special appearance when former General Manager and Founder Stan Melton arrived to catch up with former players and team associates, and then ended up in the scorekeepers table to announce live play-by-play for the fans and players. We all appreciate your continued support and love for this sport.
To the Alumni in attendance, it was your hard work in the classroom, in the community, and on the ice that made this organization what it is today. Even more important, your continued support away from Springfield is what helps grow Missouri State University Hockey into a nationally and internationally recognized and respected Hockey program. Thank you and look forward to seeing more familiar faces next season.
