Hunt for the Hub of Hockey
Quincy’s bravest (right) were recently awarded the privilege of hosting the Zdeno Chara Hub of Hockey Banner at the Pilgrim Skating Arena in Hingham for their weekly pick up hour.

As you can see, the Fire Department’s hockey team displayed the nine-story banner on the ice after winning the privilege, recently, through the Hunt for the Hub of Hockey contest.

One of the firefighters, Kevin Tape, even wears #33 in honor of the B’s captain on his new Flames inspired jersey.

If you think you represent the Hub of Hockey and have a place to display a huge banner featuring Zdeno Chara or Patrice Bergeron, click here...
