IBEW members, families, and friends witnessed the birth of a new tradition at UBS Arena on Tuesday, March 29, in the first annual Local 3 vs. Local 25 hockey game. Local 3 Business Manager Christopher Erikson and Local 25 Business Manager Kevin Casey shared center ice for the opening puck drop. The Local 3 Hockey Club won 6-4 in exciting fashion, scoring on the open net to seal the deal at the end of the third period.
This game was dedicated in memory of Local 3 brother Richard Santangelo. Raffle funds were donated to local charities in partnership with the Matt Martin Foundation.
The Local 3 Hockey Club will play again at UBS Arena on Thursday, April 21, versus Local 1049. More games are coming up this month against Port Authority, Nassau County Police, and Suffolk County Sheriffs.
