Members of the Rockford Squirt hockey team get a thrill at a recent tournament in Traverse City. They got to meet former Redwing tough guy Joey Kocur and get a few pictures taken with one of the great “bruise brothers.” Pictured are (front, l–r) Camryn Gabriel, Sadie Smyth, Jonathon King, Tucker Hendrie, Austin Czarnopys, and Paul Sikkema; (back) Joey Kocur. These members and the rest of the team had two wins and one loss on the weekend.
