MARQUETTE, Mich. — Northern Michigan University (NMU) has announced a partnership agreement with Marquette Junior Hockey that will provide the area youth hockey program with numerous benefits for players and the sport itself. The agreement includes several initiatives aimed at promoting the development of young hockey players in the region.
As part of the agreement, NMU will designate one of its hockey games each season as Youth Hockey Night, providing 20 complimentary tickets for each home game to be distributed throughout the youth hockey organization. Additionally, Marquette Junior Hockey will be advertised in NMU’s Berry Events Center and discounted rates will be provided to its players to join the Young Wildcat Club. Fundraising opportunities are also being provided through group game ushers, 50-50 raffle ticket sellers and chuck-a-puck sellers.
“We are excited about this partnership agreement,” said Ryan Higbie, president of Marquette Junior Hockey in a recent news release. “We appreciate the opportunities and visibility it will provide for our players.” The organization would like to thank NMU coaches Grant Potulny and athletic director Rick Comley for their enthusiasm for this partnership.
The agreement also brings NMU hockey coaches and players into activities aimed at enhancing the development of MJH players and coaches. “We are committed to helping grow the sport and develop young players locally,” said Comley, a former head coach at NMU himself. “This is a win-win partnership, and we look forward to building the game together.”
