Honoring a Major Contribution to the Hockey Community
On September 22nd, the OHL Spirit are honoring David Westner on his 40+ year contribution to hockey in Saginaw and the surrounding communities. He will be dropping the puck at 7:05. Special fundraising tickets are on sale for $10, with $5 coming back to the GSAHA if ordered online at www.saginawspirit.net/groupsales Group ID: GSAHA Pass: Spirit18
Westner, long time manager of the Saginaw Bay Ice Arena has led the Greater Saginaw Amateur Hockey Association since 1986, coming here after a 2 year professional coaching stint and an 8 year pro playing career, ending with the Saginaw Gears. He inherited a struggling facility and program, growing them to what they are today. Over ten thousand young skaters have come through the doors since then, all having the opportunity due in large part to his efforts. The GSAHA family is grateful for his service to the arena, his wisdom in leading the program, and his friendship throughout his career. Despite his retirement, David plans to work part time at the arena and help out as needed.
