The Castleton University men’s ice hockey program’s annual Thanksgiving-weekend tournament has been renamed as the Terry Moran Invitational Tournament, honoring the Spartans’ longtime assistant coach who helped build the program from the ground up.

The announcement was made Monday morning by Castleton Associate Dean for Athletics and Recreation to the Castleton men’s ice hockey team, Moran and members of the Castleton Blue Line Club.

Moran has been an assistant coach for the men’s ice hockey team since its inception in 2003-04, helping shape the young men who have come through the program into not only better hockey players, but better people as well.

“I am proud to announce that beginning this weekend, and for many years to come, the Spartans will be playing for the Terry Moran Invitational Cup,” Tyson announced to thunderous stick taps on the Spartan Arena ice.

“Terry has been a big part of Castleton hockey for the better part of two decades,” said Tyson. “He has not only been a coach for us on the bench, but he has been a mentor to all of our head coaches and to all of the young men who have put on a Spartan uniform.”

Castleton opens Terry Moran Invitational Tournament play on Friday at 7 p.m. against Rivier University. Franklin Pierce will play Arcadia at 4 p.m. Friday in the first game of the tournament.

My name is jen !!! I am very grateful for sharing this great testimonies with you all. The best thing that has ever happened in my life is how I won the Powerball lottery. I do believe that someday I will win the Powerball lottery. Finally my dreams came through when I contacted Dr. OKAKA and told him I needed the lottery winning special numbers because I have come a long way spending money on tickets just to make sure I win. But I never knew that winning was so easy with the help of Dr. OKAKA , until the day I meant the spell caster testimony online, which a lot of people have talked about that he is very powerful and has great powers in casting lottery spells, so I decided to give it a try. I emailed Dr. OKAKA and he did a spell and gave me the winning lottery special numbers 62, and co-incidentally I have be playing this same number for the past 23years without any winning, But believe me when I played the special number 62 this time and the draws were out I was the mega winner because the special 62 matched all five white-ball numbers as well as the Powerball, in the April 4 drawing to win the $70 million jackpot prize...… Dr. OKAKA, truly you are the best, with Dr. OKAKA you can win millions of money through the lottery. I am a living testimony and so very happy I meant him, and I will forever be grateful to him...…
