101 Things: UVM Hockey Game

In last week’s post we invited all of you to help us host a week of happy hours. Just a reminder, if you are interested, don’t forget to sign up.

It’s been a little while since we last attempted any of the 101 things on our list but we are back at it. This one is #73 — go to a hockey game!

Shout out to Christopher Damiani ’15 and Michelle Goldsmith ’15 who won tickets to the game on Martin St. Louis night last Friday January 8th at Gutterson Field House.

And shout to me for my awkward selfie face (where’s a selfie stick when you need one?)

Excited fans packed the “Gut” and watched as Martin St. Louis took to the ice to speak about his time at UVM, success in the NHL, and have his number 8 raised to the rafters.

It was a great moment for UVM and our alums everywhere. A great success story. An undrafted player becomes an NHL legend and is the first player to have his number retired by UVM. Very inspirational!

Oh and we won 1-0 over Dartmouth!
