Lime Green and the Mayor's Cup
Lime Green was Chris Krassowski's favorite color. At the Mayor's Cup game in 2008, Wayne Valley players wore lime green tape on their helmets, sticks and uniform in Chris' honor.The tradition has continued each year.
Since Chris Krassowski's passing,
the Wayne Valley Ice Hockey Ice Hockey Team & Booster Club
has not used the uniform #2.
We hope to continue the tradition in Chris' honor for future season.
