The Soo Thunderbirds are proud to announce that they will honour a former member of their club this Saturday, December 9th in their home game against the Soo Eagles at 7:30 p.m. at the John Rhodes Community Centre.
The team will retire goaltender Michael Doan’s number (# 33) prior to game time.
Doan, who lost his life in a single-vehicle accident in Rochester, Minnesota this past summer, spent the 2010-2011 season with the Soo Thunderbirds, recording 25 wins in 37 games along with posting a .916 save percentage.
He was also the recipient of the Wayne Chase Memorial Trophy for the league’s lowest goals against average of 2.66 and shared the NOJHL Team Goaltending Award with Remo Febbraro.
Players and staff from the 2010-2011 team will be attending the ceremony.
