One of hockey’s greatest stars

I remember this being posted not long after the Steve Moria Testimonial then a friend shared this video again on Facebook and it reminded me of a great night had by many people celebrating the career of one of the best players to play on these shores.

As someone who’s been around hockey for a long long time I’d seen and heard of Steve Moria long before I ever got to meet the legend.  When he signed for Slough I looked forward to seeing the skill that everyone in the UK knew of plied in favour of my team and in 3½ seasons I wasn’t disappointed.  Possibly even more important than the many great hockey memories though is that I made a genuine friend for life and when I was asked to be a part of his testimonial ahead of the 2012/13 season it was a great honour.

Enjoy these memories from a fantastic night in Planet Ice, Basingtoke celebrating the career of “Steeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeve Moria”
