...The Raptors are a new team this year, their home ice is in New Hope. Please consider becoming part of this team, they are looking for new and existing special hockey players.Oct 31 is a first registration deadline. Players registering after Oct 31 can't join a team with full roster, but we expect the Raptors will have room throughout the season.
It is with great sadness that I write to you all to let you know that Calvin R., a player with the Minnesota Special Hockey Eagles team, passed away peacefully on Monday evening. Calvin had continued to struggle with his health this summer and in the end had made the decision to end treatments. he was surrounded by family and friends when he decided to leave us.
As soon as I get any more information regarding services I will pass that on to you all. Calvin really loved hockey and especially all of the new friends he made over the past 4 years. Thank you to everyone for all that you do and please keep his family in your prayers this week.Laura Porras, Program Coordinator, Carmen Lane
