Jeff Burd may have been young but he raised the bar on "How to Lead By Example." To hear the words spoken by many who were associated with Jeff would lead you to the understanding that Jeff not only touched lives but he touched hearts as well. Brilliant, dedicated, competitive, hard-working, loving and always helped others are just a few descriptions used by family members, teachers, friends, teammates, others in our community.
Jeff was a person that loved his family, family vacations, surfing, music, and skatebording. His true passion was hockey where he played for the Chief's Ice Hockey Team and the Medford Wild Ice Hockey Team. He also played Marlton Recreation Council Tournament & In Town Teams for both roller & street hockey. And without any question... he was an avid Philadelphia Flyer's Fan.
An old cliche but true, a picture is worth a thousand words. To view more of what Jeff was really like visit the gallery for images of Jeff. Although Jeff may have been quiet around most he had talent for putting words to paper in poetic form. Visit One Last Breath to read his words.
Long time Marlton Street Hockey coach Ken Wright was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Esphogael cancer. Nanci and Kenny are both self-employed and we all know how hard it is to just have the courage to fight cancer, let alone worrying about where the money is coming from to pay your bills.
Marlton Street Hockey will be hosting a weekend of pre-season games to raise funds to help out the Wright family. All divisions will have games on both Saturday and Sunday. Each player who donates $15 will receive a T Shirt. In addition, the snack stand proceeds as well as money raised from the Speed Shot will be donated to the Wrights.
We ask all of our players and parents to donate whatever they can.
Date of Event: NOVEMBER 26 & 27....
Location: Marlton Hockey Rinks
Thanks to all.

In Remembrance- Casey Lohne- Shawnee HS 2019
Casey will be remember Casey for his sense of humor and being the “comic relief” on his team.
“Casey could even make referees laugh in the middle of a game, he refused to take anything too seriously. He always had a smile. He liked being that person. This is a lesson — don’t take everything too seriously. Live, enjoy and smile.”
