One of the greatest hockey franchises of all time will be honored on Saturday, March 14th, when the Portland Winter Hawks host the Seattle Thunderbirds at the Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon. Throughout the evening, several members of the Portland Buckaroos, along with the legacy of that amazing franchise from the era of the '60s and early '70s, will be honored with special ceremonies and rememberances of the team that cemented Portland's relationship with the sport of hockey, that lasts to this day.
It was January 28th, 1968, when my mother took me to see the Bucks play the AHL's Quebec Aces, the night that hooked me on hockey forever. While I am very disapointed that I can't be there, I hope you can be in my place. Click the following link for more information on this most special of nights:
Simply put, this is a night you won't want to miss.
"LET'S GO BUCKS!"
