After the Homer Mariners hockey team faced Bartlett on Nov. 4, four players did more than just get some food after the game.

Team captain Charlie Menke, Douglas Dean, Tucker Weston and his little brother Phinny Weston were walking across Benson Boulevard in Anchorage when they came across a homeless man bleeding profusely from his hand.

They immediately began talking to him, and the man, who was clearly intoxicated, told the boys he had been robbed at a nearby Fred Meyers. Menke says they wanted to make sure he was able to get help.

Winter is coming which, means good news for hockey fans. Homer’s ice rink, Kevin Bell Arena, is offering some ice time this month, but most programs will begin in October.

President of the Homer Hockey Association Jan Rumble notes that the organization is also starting this year with a strong financial plan.
