What better way to start your New Year's Eve celebration than with an All-Star hockey game and fundraiser for Special Olympics Alaska? With stands filled with family, friends and old acquaintances all there to watch their favorite players and raise some money for a great cause. The roster was filled with familiar names of hockey stars from Chugiak and Eagle River - some who have been shining bright since 1983 (Pete McEnaney) and more recently, 2011 (Ben Russell). The All-Star teams were formed by the regular season captains, but I’m sure you can see a theme in the team names and sponsors. Team USA featured players from Pizza Man and Homesteaders, while Team Mexico's players came from Garcia’s and Jalapenos.
