Dear Friends & Alumni-

Let’s all move forward with the Broncos by participating in the 2016 WMU Hockey Friends and Alumni Weekend. As coaches and players, we have great expectations for the 2016-17 season, and there is no better time or place to begin a great year than this weekend!

Our staff is working hard to make this the most memorable Friends & Alumni Weekend ever. But, we can not achieve that goal without you!

Plan to join Alums and Friends of the program to enjoy the camaraderie, relive and embellish on days past, and meet the 2016-17 Broncos who will carry the banner forward!

July 22nd and 23rd is our opportunity to say thank you to all our alums and to recognize Rob Bryden, Jim Culhane, and Bill Neal, by welcoming them into the WMU Hockey RING OF HONOR.

I expect 200 or more Alumni, including many past and present pro players, and friends to enjoy the weekend festivities. 

It’s a great day to be a Bronco ... GO BRONCOS!
- Head Coach Andy Murray
