On August 8th, 2012 we lost a member of our family. Major Tom Kennedy was killed in action while serving his country in Afghanistan, his fourth tour of duty. TK, was a proud alum of Don Bosco playing varsity hockey during his time at DBP. He went on to West Point where he played for four seasons and later served as the Officer Representative to the Army hockey team.
Each year we celebrate TK by playing the TK Cup game and also honor him by wearing a patch on our jerseys in remembrance. His #10 was officially retired in February of 2013 during a pre-game ceremony prior to the inaugural TK Cup game where a scholarship was also established in his name.
We also honor a player each year with the TK Award who exemplifies the leadership, values and attributes that made TK a great teammate.
