Posted @withregram @takingbackhockey Very sad to hear of the passing of the great Mark Sertich, a gentleman from Minnestoa who played hockey three times a week at 99 years old. What an inspiration he was to me. He hoped to be on the ice at 100. It would have been such an honor for me to skate with him, I think it’s the reason I’m grateful to older players who gave me a chance and showed me things.

Rest in peace to the oldest hockey player according to The Guinness Book of World Records”
