Westfield State men’s hockey team wear camouflage to honor veterans, first responders

Hampden County

An ice hockey game was played in Westfield Tuesday night to honor the military and first responders.

The Westfield State men’s hockey team wore camouflage and held a moment of silence and recognition before the game.

All military members and first responders received free admission. All the proceeds were donated to a charity chosen by the Westfield Department of Veteran’s Affairs.

“It’s a great honor to be here and to be able to drop a puck in the name of first responders. I give a lot of credit to the college kids for putting something like this on,” said Westfield Mayor Brian Sullivan.

Sullivan and the city’s police and fire chiefs attended for the puck drop. 

The VA held a resource fair for veterans in the lobby before the game.
