Today we honor the memory of one of our Eels’ family members and no doubt one of our most loyal fans and supporters: Marie Stock. Most of us knew her as “Grand Ma” Marie came to the Eels program over 3 years ago as the Grand Mother of Dilion Kaufman,

Marie and her husband Gerry were one of our most loyal fans who supported our players for years after Dillon went to college. They were billet parents for so many players as well. Marie you will be missed dearly by all of us but never forgotten.

Eels Assistant Captain  Bryan Kozak made the presentation to Gerry  her husband – Dillon’s game jersey on behalf of Marie. Thank you for giving us so much over the years.
The Eels have been wearing the Cow Bells Ribbon on their helmets, a symbol of the Cow Bells  that Marie would ring at every game along with the ribbon in Hockey's Fight Against Cancer. The Eels have raised over $60,000 over the past several years fighting that evil disease.
