Fan appreciation

Letter to the Editor | Wednesday, March 1, 2006

In short, on behalf of your Notre Dame hockey team, thank you to our students and the members of our faculty and staff who have come to the Joyce Center to cheer on the Fighting Irish icers this season. With your support, we’ve filled the Joyce Center to capacity each weekend this semester, and without a doubt, that helped us earn each of the victories that allowed us to host the first round of the CCHA’s postseason tournament this weekend.

On that note, your vocal support will be a key element in our success in this best two out of three series against a very worthy opponent, the Nanooks of the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. As has been the policy all year, admission for students (of Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross) is free to each game (while the supply of seats anywhere in the Joyce Center Fieldhouse last).

In closing, we hope we’ll see (and hear) many of you in the stands at each game again this weekend. Thanks again for your support. Go Irish! Beat Nanooks!
