Charlotte Checkers Visit Fairview

Rasmus Rissanen shows Kendal H. where he was born!

The week before holiday break, two members of the American Hockey League, Charlotte Checkers made a visit to Fairview.

Justin Krueger (Duesseldorf, Germany) and Rasmus Rissanen (Kuopio, Findand) spent the day talking to the student body about the sport that they play and their homelands. They shared stories about what is was like to live in a different country and the hard work and dedication that it took to make their dreams come true. Students were interested in learning what their ultimate goal is and they responded that their dream is to play in the National Hockey League.

Before they left the school, they signed many autographs and encouraged the student body to attend a home game and cheer them on!
