SPRINGFIELD, NJ – On Friday June 8, the 10th Annual JDHS Alumni Hockey Game will be played. This year the game will be played at Codey Arena in West Orange from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
For the second consecutive year, the event will honor the memory of Daniel Triano. And for the second consecutive year, the event will be run by Jonathan Dayton senior Zoe Frei.
About the event Zoe said, “I am running the game again this year to honor an amazing friend, teammate, and person. This event was so successful last year. There was an amazing turnout and a lot of support from people all over the area. I hope this year will be just as successful. Please come out and support.”
Dan was a student, friend and teammate of many at Jonathan Dayton High School and Springfield Township. He was killed in a car accident in 2016.
Funds raised from the event will go toward a scholarship in Dan’s memory, as well as a donation to the New Jersey Dare Devils, a hockey organization for children with special needs that Dan was passionate about.
Dan was a student at Union County Vo-Tech’s Academy of Information Technology, a member of the Jonathan Dayton hockey team, and a long time New Jersey Youth Devils Player.
The Annual Alumni Hockey Game has become a tradition in Springfield and has enjoyed consistent support from the local business community and families. This year event organizers hope for a strong showing from the community.
An alumni hockey game involving past hockey team members of Jonathan Dayton & David Brearley High Schools will be the main event. Many of the players were teammates of Dan. Tickets are $3 in advance and $5 at the door.
