The gold medal winning 1980 U.S.A. Olympic Hockey Team, who achieved what Sports Illustrated proclaimed, “the greatest sports moment of the 20th century” with their “Miracle on Ice” victory over the Soviet Union, will be in attendance for a special 35th anniversary event. This reunion will feature the original team members giving you their unique perspective on this historic event and will utilize original photo, audio and video footage from the 1980 Winter Olympic Games.
The Herb Brooks Arena will open its doors to fans on Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. for an exclusive event with the players. For those who still have it, attendees are encouraged to wear their authentic 1980 Winter Olympic memorabilia. “To be able to share our story with fans has always been a pleasure, and given the 35th Anniversary is in 2015, this seems like a great time to reach as many people as possible,” said Dave Christian. “Honestly, sharing the stories never gets old, because it always ends with a smile on someone’s face.”
The evening will also include a tribute to teammate, Bob Suter, who passed away in September while doing what he loved, coaching kids. The tribute will include a permanent #20 jersey raised to the rafters of the 1980 Rink – Herb Brooks Arena.
