Dan was a student, friend and teammate of many at Jonathan Dayton High School and Springfield Township.  He was killed in a fatal 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.

Please contact Zoe Frei at 973-666-1627 or zoefrei7@gmail.com to purchase tickets, make a donation, or get more information about the event.
