GENEVA, N.Y. - The Hobart Hockey Helpers (HHH) and the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) are honored to announce that two special edition Hobart hockey jerseys were sent to two soldiers serving in Iraq with ties to Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

One jersey was sent to 2nd Lt. Kyle Moore '01. He played hockey for the Statesmen from 1997-2001 and is currently deployed with the 181st Infantry Brigade Force Security. Moore's sister, Alessandra, is a senior at William Smith.

The second jersey was sent to Geneva native Lt. Mike Hatfield, who is currently deployed with C-Battery 1/214 Field Artillery. His brother, Joe, is a chef with Hobart and William Smith's food services.

Standing: Ted Brzek '08, Jared Weeden '91, Hobart director of alumni relations, Ryan Adler '09, Dan Miller '10, Greg Alberti '10, and Kyle Whitaker '11. Seated: Joe Hatfield and Alessandra Moore.

The Hobart hockey team wore the special edition camouflage uniforms, featuring the WWP logo, when it played Utica on Feb. 15. HHH raised more than $6,000 for WWP through raffles and jersey auctions.

The Hobart Hockey Helpers (HHH) was established to give the Hobart hockey team the opportunity to volunteer and give back through service projects in the community.
