PORTAGE, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Members of the Western Michigan University hockey team, past and present, come together for the Bronco Hockey Friends and Alumni Weekend.

Friday, there was an alumni hockey game at Lawson Area. Saturday, there was a golf outing at the Moors Golf Club in Portage.

The weekend allows current players and members of the community to meet and build relationships with some of the best hockey players who took to the ice for the Broncos.

Current head coach Andy Murray says it's important to connect the past with the present. "This is a real special time," Murray says. "You hear some of the alumni talk, they see each other once a year, basically, at this event. It's amazing the number of returning alum we have every year when they come back to this friends and alumni golf tournament."

One former Bronco player back in town this weekend is current Detroit Red Wing Danny DeKeyser. He says this is an event he looks forward to every year.

"This is always a fun day," DeKeyser says. "I always have this marked on my calendar with a circle around it because we always have a blast here. It's just a fun day. You see all the guys you used to play with and see what guys are up to, some you haven't seen in a while. It sort of brings everyone together."

Four former members of the Broncos hockey alumni were inducted into the Ring of Honor. Bill Horn, Chris MacDonald, Mike Eastwood and Bill Saunders all helped build the program into what it is today.
