MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota is proudly known as the state of hockey, and on Memorial Day, some hockey-lovers honored a former player.
Sgt. Bryan McDonough died when his Humvee hit an IED in Iraq.
Before enlisting in the National Guard, he played hockey for Roseville High School. On Monday, Minnesota Warriors Ice Hockey inducted him into the Hall of Honor at the Vadnais Heights Sports Center.
The hall, which was inaugurated on Monday, recognizes local military members who died serving their country.
Warriors Ice Hockey is a club team for veterans who’ve suffered injuries while serving. The co-gender team is made up of all ages and abilities.
