    Remembering Rick Kleinschmidt

    Sauk Centre Youth Hockey is reeling from the unexpectedly loss of one of our biggest supporters and staple amongst our hockey community. 
    As a multi term past president, Rick Kleinschmidt was an instrumental piece in bringing high school hockey to Sauk Centre and making indoor hockey a reality for our players. Rick loved our kids and the sport of hockey. Rick will forever be remembered for his passion to our association and his enthusiasm while announcing games. 
    This season our players will honor Rick Kleinschmidt by displaying "RK" stickers on the back of their helmets as we remember a great man and his legacy. 
    Thank You Rick for everything you did for our youth. Our hockey family is hurting but we will strengthen and forever play in your honor.
