As we approach the homestretch of what I call “Trophy Season”, I want to stop and take a moment to thank you for the effort you have put forth this season in creating a great atmosphere at Kelley Rink. Your role as fans is extremely important to our success. Kelley Rink is a tough place for visiting teams to play, and you are a big reason why.
This is an important weekend coming up for our club, and we are extremely fortunate to be able to host the Quarterfinals of the Hockey East Tournament right here on campus. We need your presence and enthusiasm more than ever, and we need it for all three periods. We need you, our students, to be our “seventh man” as we make a big playoff push. I challenge you to grab your friends and your Superfan shirts, and head to Kelley Rink for this weekend’s series against Vermont.
I sincerely hope that each of you will continue to support us by packing the student section, dancing to “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”, chanting throughout the game, and joining us with your fists held high as we celebrate victory during our beloved alma mater.
When our student section is packed, your presence, voices and energy can truly create a home ice advantage. This is the last time that we will play at Kelley Rink this year, and I know that I can depend on you to come early, wear your Superfan shirt, stand and be loud throughout the entirety of the game!
See you on Friday!
Yours in hockey,
Coach Jerry York
