New Richmond, Somerset hockey alumni games planned

Hockey fans, here’s your chance to see some of your old favorites.

The New Richmond and Somerset hockey programs are both planning their alumni games. They used to play each other, but the alumni programs have grown so large that they each play their own alumni games now.

The New Richmond alumni game will be played at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 22, at the New Richmond Sports Center. New Richmond coach Adam Swanda said he expects players from all four New Richmond state tournament teams to be playing in the alumni game.

Somerset’s alumni game will be played at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20, at the Somerset Ice Arena. Somerset will actually play two games, with the older players starting at 7 p.m. and a second game with younger alumni starting at 8:15 p.m. All former Spartan players, current or former high school coaches, and current or former youth coaches are welcome to play. Last year more than 60 players participated. Contact Coach Dan Gilkerson to sign up to play at or 715-222-2448.
