Veterans Honored as Wounded Warrior Project Takes Center Ice at Watson Arena

Most nights for the Bowdoin men’s hockey team, an overtime win against an arch-rival would be considered the highlight of the evening. But on Friday, January 24, several distinguished members of the armed forces took center ice at Watson Arena and borrowed the spotlight from the victorious Polar Bears.

Last fall, led by goaltender Max Fenkell ’15, the Bowdoin men’s hockey team linked up with “Hockey Helpers” to foster a relationship with the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization whose stated mission is to “honor and empower wounded members of the United States Armed Forces.”

“This has been a great experience for me and the entire team over the past few months,” said Fenkell. “We have been fortunate to be surrounded by great people at Bowdoin and in the town of Brunswick who have supported us tremendously with this undertaking.” Click to read more about the Wounded Warrior Night, watch a video and view a slideshow.
