Did You know...
That for the first 4 years of Sioux City hockey we didn't have a Zamboni!!!

Left: An Auditorium staff member preparing the edges by hand. No gas edger yet!!!  Right: Staff members shovel away all the snow
from the ice. As tradition, this was done at the start of every game and between every period.


Two hot water carts sponsored by the Black Knight, a men's clothing store located in Sioux City and owned by then team owner
 Gary Lipschutz, provided the hot water that prepared the ice for the next period. Note: Notice the fence in place of glass.

 

   2011 Inaugural Sioux City Musketeers Billy Danderand Cup

Held in honor of long time Sioux City Musketeer trainer & equipment manager Billy Danderand.
A native of Jefferson, S.D., Billy has been part of the
Musketeer organization for  40 seasons!!! He joined the team during the Musketeers first season in  USHL Senior League in 1972. Billy has been a long time
friend and supporter of SYHA & Metro hockey. He also served the same duties with International Softball Congress's powerhouse teams Penn Corps &
 National Health Care.
This trophy is awarded to the winning team of the annual Musketeer's All-Star Summer Camp Green vs. Gold try-out game.

 

T.J. Reinsch Youth Hockey Foundation
In June of 2010, many of us hockey players lost a good friend!!! T.J. Reinsch was one of hockey's good guys!!! He was a SYHA and Metro player for
ten seasons and capped his high school career with a state championship for the Metros. After playing at the USHL and College levels, T.J. was not done giving to
the hockey world. He moved to Sioux Falls where he became instrumental in the re-building and the current success of the Sioux Falls Flyers youth hockey program.
He was indeed a great player, great coach and above all a great friend!!!

 

 Please visit this memorial website and help strengthen both the Sioux City and Sioux Falls hockey programs
in the name of a great guy!!!

 

Dr. Steven Noel Memorial
In 2007 Siouxland Youth Hockey lost a terrific supporter of youth hockey and just an all round terrific guy!!! At the time, Steve and
his wife had three youth hockey players in the program. The Metros honored Steve by wearing  the below helmet stickers for the remaining two
years of their oldest son's high school seasons.

The hope of the Stephen H. Noel Memorial Fund is to commemorate these qualities of Steve by inspiring and assisting
young people to pursue a career in medicine.

While a blizzard  raged over the state one weekend in late February of 1975, an invitational state high school hockey tournament, organized
by Iowa State University hockey coach Al Murdoch, was held at Hilton Coliseum in Ames. In an exciting final game Waterloo Columbus
defeated Sioux City to claim the State Championship. This tournament was the foundation for the state tournament as it occurs today...
