This week, we are proud to honor a pair of traveling Alaska fans as the WCHA Fans of the Week, Powered by E Group.
More about the winners…
Tanna Fairchild (far right in picture) and Lacey Greenfield (far left).
Ties to the University of Alaska:
Tanna is a current student, while Lacey is an alumna.
We love Nanooks hockey because:
It is such a community event in Fairbanks and everyone kind of knows each other. It is also a fabulous outing for our long winters!
Our favorite hockey memory is:
Winning the Governor's Cup every year (over Alaska Anchorage) is always a special memory! Going to the Huntsville games was cool too, especially all the Alaska fans being there! We gotta stick together. And the sweep made it all the better.
But, the absolute favorite was when one of our players – Justin Woods (#8) – played his first game back after being gone a year for cancer treatments. The whole community was behind him that year and gave him a standing ovation when he stepped onto the ice. Hockey hero. He is now cancer-free!
What we're most looking forward to about the rest of the 2016-17 season is:
Finishing in the top of the league and going on to the playoffs.
