Honoring a Legend by Supporting DU’s Hockey Student-Athletes

DU Men’s Hockey has a long and storied history – inspiring students, alumni, and the Denver community for decades. Head Coach Murray Armstrong, who led the Men’s Hockey team from 1956 to 1977, guided the University to five NCAA Championships. Just as importantly, he counted his impact on the lives of the student-athletes among his proudest accomplishments.

DU hockey alum Dave Paderski recdently paid tribute to Murray Armstrong by establishing an endowed fund to both honor Coach Armstrong and enhance the championship level resources provided to our hockey student-athletes in perpetuity. Thus far, funds have been earmarked for charted flights to minimize time away from campus and the classroom as well as elevated nutritional support for our student-athletes, continuing the tradition of providing resources to ensure that the Pioneers can excel on the national stage.
