Hat Tricks Announce Danbury Hockey Alumni Night for Saturday, March 9
The Danbury Hat Tricks are excited to announce the 4th Annual Danbury Hockey Alumni Night on Saturday, March 9 when the Hat Tricks host the Binghamton Black Bears at 7 p.m.
The City of Danbury has had a tremendous professional hockey history, starting with the Danbury Trashers in the 2004-05 season and continuing through the years with the Mad Hatters, Whalers, Titans and Hat Tricks.
On this night, invitations are extended to former players, front office and staff from each of those teams to join the Hat Tricks for our Alumni Night and participate in the festivities.
“This has been one of the best nights since we put it in place during the 2019 season," said Danbury Hat Tricks President Herm Sorcher. "To see the alumni walk through the doors and be a part of the night, it is tremendous to host those individuals and recognize all they did to put their stamp on what is happening here today.”
As has been the tradition, the Hat Tricks will wear a blended sweater of one of the past teams to call the Danbury Ice Arena home. This season the Hat Tricks will honor the Danbury Titans who posted the 3rd highest point total in Danbury history with 114 points in the 2015-16 season. The team jerseys will be auctioned off after the game.
“This night truly is an honor to be a part of," said Head Coach/General Manager, Billy McCreary. "It is humbling to see all the faces come into the DIA and be a part of the ceremonies. The fans have never forgotten their efforts.”
On the night, the Danbury Hat Tricks will induct four members into the Danbury Hockey Ring of Honor. A banner featuring the names of the honorees will hang alongside the team banners, the previous Ring of Honor members, and Corey Fulton’s (Whalers) retired number 15.
The previous honorees include, Jim Galante (Trashers), AJ Galante (Trashers), Corey Fulton (Whalers), Dave MacIssac (Trashers, Mad Hatters, & Hat Tricks), Nick Niedert (Whalers, Titans, & Hat Tricks), Matt Caranci (Whalers & Titans), Ed Campbell (Trashers & Whalers), Steve Brown (Whalers, Titans & Hat Tricks), and Alan Friedman (Whalers).
As part of the weekend, all Danbury hockey alumni will be invited to participate in an afternoon Alumni Game prior to the Hat Tricks game against Binghamton. There will be a pre-game reception in the Axe Tricks Lounge and all alumni will be honored at the first intermission of the game. All alumni (players, management, staff, ownership, etc.) of the Danbury hockey family are invited to RSVP for the weekend.
