  • The Crookston community is invited to welcome back its hockey alumni Thursday, Dec. 20 at Crookston Sports Center.
     
    That evening the Pirate boys’ and girls’ hockey teams will play East Grand Forks starting at 3 p.m. with girls’ junior varsity. Prior to face off of the boys’ varsity game  at approximately 7:30 p.m. we will honor our hockey alumni with an on-ice recognition.
     
    “We want to recognize the connection our program has had with these players; between past, present and future these community members have had a deep personal affection for the game,” says Jon Bittner, Pirate boys’ head coach.
     
    Anyone who has played hockey beyond high school is invited to the event.
     
    “If you have a friend, family member or neighbor who played Crookston hockey and played beyond in college club, D1, D2, D3, juniors and Olympics etc. we want them on the ice December 20th,” says Michelle Christopherson, Crookston Youth Hockey Association member.
