Dawg Nation Hockey – Butchy Mousseau

Butchy Mousseau was a collegiate hockey official who fell and hit his head during the WCHA Final Five pregame warm ups at Van Andel Arena two weeks ago. He was put into a medically induced coma, and unfortunately he passed away last week. The WMOA board asks you to strongly consider helping our fellow brother’s family out, as they try to cope with the tragic loss of Butchy.
